The Lions will meet the Rams on Sunday Matthew Stafford Jersey , which means it’s time to revisit every Lions fan’s favorite topic: The fact that the Lions passed on superstar defensive tackle Aaron Donald in the 2014 NFL draft and chose tight end Eric Ebron instead.Donald has become the best defensive player in the NFL with the Rams, who chose him with the 13th overall pick. And that sticks in the craw of Jim Washburn, who was the Lions’ defensive line coach at the time. Washburn told Dave Birkett of the that during the Lions’ draft preparations he told everyone up to and including owner Martha Ford that Donald was going to be the league’s next great defensive player.“I said this guy is a Jedi,” Washburn says today. “Everybody looked puzzled and Mrs. Ford was sitting there and she couldn’t figure out what the heck a Jedi was. And I said a Jedi, he’s like Yoda. It’s like a Jedi, they see things before they happen, and I said Aaron Donald sees things before they happen. And he’s John Randle. Maybe when it’s all said and done, he’s better than John Randle.”Washburn said a person he did not want to identify within the Lions’ personnel department was adamant that Donald was too small, and ultimately Washburn got overruled.“He’s the premier player in football in my opinion,” Washburn said. “You make the exception for the exception and the guy . . . shot him down.”In Washburn’s opinion, the Lions would have made it at least to the NFC Championship Game in 2014, Donald’s rookie year, if they’d had Donald on the line next to Ndamukong Suh. (The Lions went 11-5 and lost in the wild card round that season.) Washburn still views Donald as the one who got away.It’s worth noting that coaches have been known to exaggerate, with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight Da’Shawn Hand Jersey , how sure they really were about a player before the draft. But in this case, it’s not hard to believe that Washburn badly wanted Donald, who was widely considered the best defensive player in college football in 2013, then was the best player on the field at the Senior Bowl, then blew up the Scouting Combine. What defensive line coach wouldn’t want a guy like that?Unfortunately for Washburn, and the Lions, the team went for Ebron. ATLANTA (AP) — Don Crisman knows precisely when the streak began: Jan. 15, 1967. The ticket price for the Super Bowl at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum was $12.“Good seats,” Crisman, 82, said. “You could buy $6 tickets, and $10. There were three prices.”On Sunday, Crisman, Gregory Eaton and Tom Henschel will attend Super Bowl 53 . They’re the last surviving members of the Never Miss a Super Bowl Club Jarrad Davis Jersey , the only known fans with a perfect attendance record for the NFL’s biggest game.“I’ve missed weddings, I’ve missed funerals, but I’ve never missed a Super Bowl,” said Eaton, 79, from Lansing, Michigan. “Anyone in my family knows don’t plan anything because I’m gone that week.”Ticket prices have soared through the years. Eaton said he paid $2,000 for his ticket to Sunday’s Rams-Patriots game. The most he paid was $3,000 for Super Bowl 48 in East Rutherford, New Jersey, in 2014.Now, as the Rams prepare to face Tom Brady and the Patriots on Sunday, preserving the streak is more important than the cost. And it has not been a smooth ride the whole way.Henschel, 78 Teez Tabor Jersey , a Steelers fan who lives near Pittsburgh, had his near-miss in New Orleans for Super Bowl 6 in 1972.“I partied a lot on Bourbon Street and woke up at 5 or 6 in the morning and couldn’t breathe,” Henschel said. “I was on all fours. I finally got outside on the street and a police officer took me to a hospital. The next thing I know I’m in the ER with an IV in me and oxygen.“They rolled me into a room and I’m feeling good and a nun came in and said ‘You’re going to be under observation the next 24 hours.’ I said ‘Sister, you don’t understand, I’ve got to go to this game.’ She said ‘No, you’ll be able to see the game on TV.’ Right after she walked out, I took my IV out and oxygen off and I left. They’ve never seen me since.”Crisman almost missed Super Bowl 2 in Miami when a storm forced his private plane to land at an abandoned Air Force base in South Carolina. He finally had a take a 24-hour train ride before arriving in Miami only a couple hours before the Packers-Raiders game.“My streak almost ended before it began,” he said.Crisman distributed Super Bowl 53 club shirts to Henschel and Eaton when they met at a luncheon in downtown Atlanta on Friday. It’s a unique club for the three who become mini-celebrities once a year.Crisman, a Patriots fan from Kennebunk, Maine, offered a toast to former members who have died, including Larry Jacobson six months ago.Crisman said Jacobson was a “one of a kind” fan who also had streaks of attending 54 consecutive Rose Bowls and 15 Summer Olympics.As a Patriots fan, Crisman has had much to cheer about in recent Super Bowls. He said New England’s comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons two years ago is his favorite Super Bowl memory.“I had that one in the loss column at halftime,” he said.Crisman is hoping his Patriots Kenny Golladay Jersey , who lost to Philadelphia in last year’s Super Bowl , can win their sixth title. For now, Henschel’s Steelers have the record with six.The smack talk between Crisman and Henschel adds spice to the club’s dynamics.“I’m going for the Rams big-time,” Henschel said. “Big-time!”Henschel is armed with his Steelers’ Super Bowl record for anyone who would question why he’d wear a Pittsburgh jacket to a function before the Rams-Patriots game.“What, do we need to give you a history lesson?” Henschel said before adding with a smile, “That always gets them.”Meanwhile, Eaton’s Detroit Lions have never made it to a Super Bowl. Year after year, he keeps his streak intact.“I take one year at a time,” Eaton said. “If my health keeps going, I’d at least like four or five more.”
