Sometimes when a player sees his team draft another player in the first round at his position, he tends to get perturbed. Unless, of course, that other player will join forces with him and form a potent one-two punch.

That’s the case in Detroit with sensational second-year defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and this year’s first-round pick, Nick Fairley.

“It’s going to be exciting to be able to have a guy like that come out and be really a truly impact guy from the first couple days of him getting on the field,” Suh recently told the Detroit Free Press.

“I think on paper we have one of the strongest defensive lines across the board,” Suh said. “It’s going to be exciting with that, but we’ve got to go out there and prove it. It may look good on paper, but you definitely want to get out there and make some noise.”

Thats where youre unfortunately wrong.  Like one fan commented earlier about the panther 03 run their front 4 was unstoppable and the secondary was mediocre at best.  Same with the lions except ours wont be that bad, we have Delmas who is one of the best young safetys in the game and we signed veteran eric coleman who is a proven talent at safety.  Alphonso smith is going to be one of the better nickel corners in the league one day.  The whole point of having a solid line that can get pressure is so our secondary doesnt have to cover a long time.  Our defensive stats were way better than 2 years ago and our number of interceptions almost quadrupled and we had an average secondary last year.  The reason why our defense got so much better?  Probably the acqusitions of Suh, Vanden Bosch, and Williams.  Not that a shutdown corner wouldnt help us even more but the way our line is playing we need O line help before we need and secondary

On paper... sure.

2 things tho...

Fairly has yet to take one pro snap.

VandenBosh is what???  67 years old?  How long can that temp fix hold up?

It does look really good on paper but if Nick Fairley lets that lazy side (he showed it in college) take over he could be the next Albert Haynesworthless and only play hard in a contract year.

I hope Fairley works hard and helps the Lions to succeed.
Enough with the characterizations based on bullshit people like Mel Kiper have to say. Even if he needs a fire lit under him, Suh seems like a pretty good candidate to do the lighting. Fat Albert was always the biggest and baddest guy on the line. Suh is the biggest and baddest guy on the line there in Detroit and probably will be the best lineman in the NFL for a decade, and also just a year older. I think if Fairley loafs, Suh beats him down. Suh is one of a kind. Fairley couldn't be in a better place for his position than in Detroit right now (Never heard that line uttered before).

You are completely wrong on that regards Donniesdawgs. During the Panthers 03 SB run, they had a fantastic front four but their secondary was average at best. A great front line can make up for the weak secondary. Obviously they will look to improve in FA whenever that starts but that secondary will not be their Achilles heel, it will Stafford and whether or not he can stay healthy.

If these two perform half as good as it looks on paper they will be terrors! Suh was an absolute beast last year! In a rookie year he had 66 tackles, 10 sacks, 1 interception, 1 fumble recovery for a TD, won the defensive rookie of the year and made the pro bowl! And he did alot of it while being double teamed! Now that fairley is next to him its gonna be hard for the O line to decide who to double team. If Fairley does turn out to be a beast as well it will only be a matter of time before QB's turn everything in short 3 step drops and quick passes. I dont care how poor the lions secondary is if the QB has less than 2 1/2 seconds to find a reciever. I hope that they actually do turn out to be a menacing pair because the lions are long over due to make a move in that division. Plus they could be the first team to have defensive rookie of the year at the same position two years in a row.
