Follet blames Satan for 'china doll' comments

On Monday, Zach Follett went on the radio and referred to his quarterback as a "china doll." Even if Matthew Stafford's missed a lot of football games, the city of Detroit didn't appreciate that and got really made at the linebacker.

So, naturally, he did what anyone else would do -- fire up the video podcast machine, record a rambling short film in which he blamed Satan for his actions and post it on the Internet.



"Satan wants me to respond through the flesh and attack back" -- literal words spoken in that video. Now, there's no need for this to turn into a religious discussion, because, well, hey, do what you want and praise who you want.

But it seems a touch unfair to claim that Satan is working "through the media." I mean, he totally was with that whole Jay Cutler thing, but this was probably someone else's work.

Speaking of which, Follet also said yesterday he's "glad [the Lions] have Matt Stafford instead of the Bears quarterback because [Stafford] goes out there and plays with separated shoulders and wins games." Quick! Someone find another demonic entity to blame!

Zach Follett is slightly delusional.

Two minutes worth of free research for Follet: Stafford has started 13 games and missed 19 games in two seasons. The Lions are 3 - 10 in those rare games when Stafford is not wearing shorts and a cap. Cutler has missed a game and a half in his entire career (plus the second half in the NFC Title game, which Stafford never has to worry about). He's won more games than Stafford has even started. The devil is in the details, right?

What games did Stafford play through and win? I remember Peppers knocking his ass out, him missing a ton of games again, and Detroit losing their standard 13 or so games. What am I missing? See, this is why I despise Twitter. Most athletes are waaaaaaaaayyyy too stupid to use it, but blaming Satan is a new touch.

Fair point.  That unibrow can put a strangehold on one's mind.

I've learned God doesn't accept praise from Buffalo Bills receivers, has crossed over into Hinduism by giving Karma to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and has deferred to Satan in matters involving "china dolls". Yep, I feel confident in our education system

That's all hilarious but I don't think 'education' had much to do with any of this. The Slovakian with the devious looking eyebrows is the easiest scapegoat, as always.

Do what you want and praise who you want...

Especially if you want to kill dogs for fun.  That worked out well for someone else in pro football.  Even better for the dogs.

Or, if you want to lie and incorrectly attribute comments to an individual.  That works out well enough to be a CBS blogger or college football writer, Dodd.

I am with you Owlgator, I don't see how Miroslav Satan had anything to do with this. He is clearly another victim in case.

Ridiculous - blaming Miroslav Satan for his stupid remarks!
