Paris Lenon - Why we don’t need him back
In the week that sees the new Star Trek movie released, I felt the was appropriate. Myself-not a “Trekkie”, but still felt the need to pay homage.
And Paris Lenon. I felt the need to pay homage as well. I still see sites and chat rooms with comments venturing to guess-“Why don’t we re-sign Paris?” I have one thing to say to that.
FALL ON THE BALL! Playoffs, UGH!
GONE, vanished, disappeared. The Downhill Marinelli regime started from there. Ineptitude marched in and took over the Asylum while aboard a Lionel Choo-Choo train. An announcers booth is where you belong. You are good at that. But please, do not speak of college-football prospects and NEVER mention the word “Lions” in a sentence.
Paris Lenon was not a starting linebacker. He has dedication, he has heart. But Paris is not the guy. Paris is too small. Paris does not “blow people up”, and he certainly doesn’t strike fear into the hearts of NFL running backs. He is like an annoying little brother that doesn’t hurt you, just bothers you by following you all over. Like a dryer sheet that stays connected to your favorite fleece sweatshirt when it’s taken out of the dryer. It isn’t heavy enough to pull it down to the ground. It just “CLINGS-ON”. Static cling. That is Paris Lenon.
KLINGON or CLING-ON
Not even strong enough to pull down a quarterback. Hey, that’s Tarvarus Jackson. It’s not like I’m asking for him to devour Big Ben. It almost seems like Paris is a box kite, ready to disappear from site. The proverbial kid that gets dragged thirty yards downfield. Coach said he has heart, he never gives up. But thank God someone realizes the difference in special teams “track-down” talent, and the ability to light someone’s ass up. I think we can at least put a FOOTE in it for now. [We also have a Levee...I mean, Leavy, being built to hold back the rushing tide as well. He seems to be a great prospect, and with a year or two behind Foote rotating in and getting valuable game experience, I have a feeling he will end up as one heck of a break-wall for the Lions D for many years. ~ DF79]
