Ever since the day Eric Ebron was drafted by the Detroit Lions, he has been public enemy No. 1 for many fans and even some of the local media members.
After all, Ebron was selected with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, ahead of players like pro bowl players such as Odell Beckham Jr. and Aaron Donald. But instead of living up to his draft slot, Ebron became known for the guy who dropped a lot of passes.
Following the conclusion of the 2017 season, the Lions made it known that they would be moving on from Ebron, making him a free agent. As you probably have heard, he signed with the Indianapolis Colts prior to the 2018 campaign and up to this point, he has had one hell of a season.
*For the record, I was extremely pissed when Bob Quinn made the decision to part way with Ebron.
In fact, through 14 weeks, the former Lion has 12 touchdown catches, which *ties him with Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers (at the time of this post) for the most TD catches in the NFL.
Despite his success, this season, many Lions fans have still taken shots at Ebron whenever they see an opportunity.
That was no different on Sunday when the Ebron dropped a pass during a 24-21 win over the Houston Texans.
Take a look as a local sports blog took a cheap shot after Ebron’s drop.
“Eric Ebron with a rare drop” is something I just heard from a real life announcer.

Well, following the game, Ebron caught wind of the tweet by the blog and fired back in a very interesting way.

Detroit Lions’ Matthew Stafford has message for his haters on social media
When it comes to lightning rods in Detroit sports, Matthew Stafford may be the biggest of all-time.
Whether you listen to local sports radio, read the papers, partake in social media, or just have conversations around the water cooler, you have likely heard plenty people give their opinion on the Detroit Lions signal caller. Some of those opinions praise Stafford and insist he is an elite quarterback who is stuck on a crappy franchise, while others are convinced that the former No. 1 overall pick is the main reason why the Lions have not been able to get over the hump for the past decade.
