    Okudah was the worst player on the Lions defense last week.

    news flash: rookies struggle.

    I think the lack of OTAs talk is more of Vance issue than a Simmons issue.

    Vance doesnt know what he's good at or hasnt had the time to get creative to figure out what to do with him.

    This is what scouts said during the draft time. Needs an already creative DC to figure out what to do with him. No OTA's/limited camp and now Vance is figuring it out on the fly.

    If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

    this defense is playing at a high level right now. There’s neither a need to hasten Isaiah on to the field nor a reason for a 3-page thread dedicated to the fact he is not on it much.

    Dude will get his time. Let VJ do his thing and leave him alone too.

    Bad process, good result mentality here. 6'4 238lbs and runs a 4.3 40 drafted 8 overall has no role on our defense. A defense that plays Reddick, Vallejo, Chris Banjo and Devon Kennard snaps. But, because our defense is playing good...no worries.

    No plan for the dude taken 8 in the draft.

    Looks like they figured out Reddick & Isabella.

    Yes, after they declined Reddick's option year because of his terrible development and thus will be a free agent. So one year of production and then gone.

    Isabella on 14 snaps. Another reason to dislike PFF ratings.

    Simmons has 2 games, no preseason. Yep, he is a total failure. End of story.

    But you still had him as a top 10 player in all of your mocks. So you must have liked him coming out. Or do you think it is a coaching thing?

    He's had plenty of game tape at his disposal. I can't buy lack of OTAs/camp as an issue.

    Inside linebacker is by far the easiest the defensive position to acclimate to in the NFL which makes Simmons' performance even more worrisome.

    How many times have we seen lesser prospects absolutely dominate in their rookie year?

    Almost think they were hoping for Brown.

    Not to derail..

    well I'll try to tie in..




    Kid is playing well. However, if he was here I'm not sure he'd beat out Beachum yet.

    So glass half full...maybe Campbell is just better now, but Simmons isnt far off from becoming helpful.

    It is 100% a GM/coaching thing.

    He is not a total failure...this team's approach to drafting and integrating these types of players is. This is on Keim and VAnce and Kliff to a degree. They obviously took a player with no real plan on how to use him, especially if Campbell (their #1 target in FA) played well. Simmons is the same guy he was in college. I don't fault him for that.
