Detroit Lions’ T.J. Lang takes to Twitter, rips fans who want team to tank

Personally, I think tanking is for fans with a loser mentality and one current Lion happens to agree with me.

Following Darius Slay’s pick-six against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, injured Lion T.J. Lang took to Twitter to show his excitement.

Well, rather than just letting the Mike Valenti minions blow hot air, Lang fired back.

But that wasn’t the only fan to share their thoughts about tanking.

And Lang’s response…

Nation, whose side are you on?
