" He said he doesn’t know why he wasn’t used more prominently in the red zone as a Lion.
“I used to beg for it,” he said. “I begged everybody. Everybody. A lot of people knew it, but it is what it is.”"
You want to know why, Eric? One word answer: hands.
You were targeted 11 times in 2017, in the red zone. You caught 3 of them. Why throw to you when you don’t catch the balls that are thrown to you?
You got more targets than Tate, who has much better hands than you do, by the way. Tate got 7 targets. But guess what? He caught all of them. Maybe we should have thrown to him more and you less.
Riddick, 8 targets, 6 catches.
What does that say, Eric, when you’re outcaught by an RB?
And I’m impressed they caught that many if you were the one blocking on those plays.
Just shut up and quit trying to blame Detroit for your suckitude.
