woah, Benny is back! yesss. i like Benny and i expect he will help get the special teams back up to snuff. special teams have been a weak spot for the lions last couple years.


Good news but esp. about Yonowsky. How he wasn’t fired last year I’ll never know. If the Lions can strengthen the somnambulant special teams of last year, that will mean more points on the board and less mistakes.
