Opinion: Suh me, for what?

Listen Detroit, the franchise tag for Ndamukong Suh is absolutely ridiculous. Almost $27 million in cap dollars tied up in one player. “one”! What’s wrong with Detroit fans and falling in love with guys that have a name? I don’t get it. A month ago I wrote a story gauging Suh’s game impact and compared it with the money he would make and it doesn’t equate. (Link here...

Tag and release: Lions should franchise Suh for one more all-in season, then let him go

To tag or not to tag? It's the great debate that will be answered by 4 p.m. Monday, the deadline for the Detroit Lions to decide whether to put the franchise tag on All-Pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. There's no perfect solution here, but there's a decent compromise: Put the franchise tag on him, go all in for 2015, then let him go after the 2015 season and start to correct the...

The Detroit Lions can’t let this d-lineman slip away in free agency

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. In fact, we’ve seen a few examples in recent years where...

The Lions should let Ndamukong Suh walk

The Detroit Lions are reportedly pulling out all the stops to keep superstar defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh in Motown. They should relent and allow him to leave via free agency. If Suh is not given the franchise tag by March 2 or signed by March 10, he will become a free agent. It would be nothing short of salary cap suicide to tag Suh, considering his number would be an outrageous...
