Former Detroit Lions’ LB Marquis Flowers apologizes to fans

The National Football League is a business, there is no doubt about that.

On Wednesday, Marquis Flowers found that out the hard way when he was waived by the Detroit Lions.

A day later, Flowers has an apology for Lions fans.

“To the Lions fans! I apologize that y’all didn’t get really get to see what I can do defensively! The opportunity just wasn’t there and that was out of my control! #AllLoveNoHate”

Though there is always an opportunity for every player on an NFL roster if they good enough, Flowers did not see the field much through the Lions first five games. In fact, in those games, he had just a single tackle.


Detroit Lions game-by-game predictions for the remainder of season

Well, our Detroit Lions are doing it to us again! After beating the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday, the Lions are now 2-3 and in striking distance in the NFC North. In fact, there are just four teams in the entire NFC that have more wins than Detroit. (Yes, we know there are 10 teams actually ahead of the Lions in the NFC standings)

Anyways, as fans, we now have a little bit of hope. The Lions have proven they can beat solid teams and if they can just get their crap together, they could make a run at the NFL Playoffs. The question is, will they get their crap together or will they break our hearts yet again?

Let’s take a look at my game-by-game predictions for the remainder of the season.


(W) WEEK 7 – @ Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins may be 3-2, but they are not a good football team. Even though this game is on the road, the Lions will be well-rested and will find a way to win to move to 3-3 on the season.

Lions 26 Dolphins 23
