Lions get 2 Pro Bowl Starters! Calvin Johnson, Ndamukong Suh

The Detroit Lions do have two Pro Bowl starters on their roster this season. This is no surprise for their fan base since they have thoroughly dominated their positions this season. Calvin Johnson has accumulated over eleven hundred yards this season averaging more than fourteen yards per catch.

He is the first wide receiver in thirteen years to receive the honor for Detroit. His twelve touchdowns are not only important for those who have him in their fantasy leagues, but also for the organization. The turf toe injury to Jahvid Best has made the team less dynamic from the running back position. One has to wonder just how effective Johnson could be if he had Matthew Stafford as his quarterback for an entire season. It’s not to say that Drew Stanton and Shaun Hill haven’t filled in admirably, but neither has the raw talent that Stafford possesses.
