    After performing admirably in his first two seasons, Ernie Sims took a step back in 2008. Then again, the Detroit Lions, as a whole, took a step backwards. New defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham thinks the third-year weakside linebacker will excel outside of the Tampa Two defensive system brought in by former Lions head coach Rod Marinelli. "I've tracked everything and I understand what happened," Cunningham said. "Tampa (Bay) plays a different kind of scheme than most people do and they did it because they had one great player, Derrick Brooks."
