The Detroit Lions have caught a lot of criticism for being an organization that brings in top talent, only to waste it by being a terribly run team. One of those players is the selection of tight end Eric Ebron, who apparently continues to harbor resentment toward the team that drafted him.
Ebron recently took a massive shot at the team, and most notably Matt Stafford, after social media users noticed he liked a tweet that implied the quarterback was to blame for the troubles of Detroit’s drafted tight ends and not the players themselves, noting he’s had 3 draft picks at the position and “none have been good playing with him.”
Ebron responded on Twitter attempting to clarify that he wasn’t bashing Stafford and that he hopes there is no NFL season so the Lions can finally see a winning one.
Ebron had a career year in his first season with the Colts as he hauled in 66 catches for 750 yards and 13 touchdowns. However, year two (2019) saw the tight end record just 31 receptions for 375 yards and three touchdowns.
To be fair, the Lions experienced back-to-back winning seasons in 2016 and 2017. However, the franchise has only qualified for the playoffs 3 times since 2000 and hasn’t won a game in the postseason since 1992.
