    You surprised me. I thought I was the only one that liked Taylor. I would prefer if the Lions traded down and took him but if he were their guy then they might just take him at 8.

    A logical move. Quinn was a warrior for this team. I hope he succeeds in his future endeavours.

    The fact you signed Flowers makes the trade down and a first round TE palatable. I would prefer they stand pat and draft another lineman but I could live with it. You put a great deal of work into this.very well thought out.

    The world lost another HOF player, https://www.wbaltv.com/article/frank-robinson-died/26238631 I grew up watching him. What a tremendous player.

    The sad thing about that list is there aren’t many players I would want back. The best part would be the cap space and Petry.

    I dont follow basketball very closely at all and the only time I really got into it was during the bad boys era.

    I’m curious how you believe this is a bargain? His contract is 14.63% of the cap. Matthews gave up a bit of salary but becomes a free agent at 26. The contract is over 90% signing bonus which means that money is protected from work stoppage or buyout. The Leafs are leading the league in money for their tip 2 centres. For a 5 year deal the contract looks about right.
  9. Insane Mock With Trades That May Not Be So Crazy

    Sorry but this is as irrelevant a statement as you could make. We haven’t won a playoff game with anyone so let’s trade Stafford, Slay. Heck trade the whole team and restock with those third and fourth round picks. This isn’t the Patriots! The Lions do not have the depth to trade starters for draft picks.

    I understand I just have a different philosophy. From my perspective you’re moving good players for mid round picks only to use high round picks to replace them with prospects. That strategy may be okay if the team adopting that philosophy didn’t have as many holes in the lineup. It’s also more understandable if the Lions depth players had improved enough to become starters. It’s a buy high sell low philosophy. Currently the Lions defence does a pretty good job at making the opposition one dimensional. Draft a top notch edge rusher which reduces the opponents ability to key on the interior and there will likely be more push in the middle. Jones didn’t put up his usual numbers this season but the Lions passing offence never clicked this year. He’s shown he has talent and fits. Robinson is also a good player that fits. I just don’t think you mess with what works unless you have depth ready to step in. If you want inside pressure, draft a DT, trade for a DT or sign one in free agency. Don’t move Robinson until some level of competency can be demonstrated without him. There are players in this draft that can play interior or edge and taking one at number 8 is far less risky than trading your starters and trying to replace them. You’re also eliminating familiarity amongst the players to draft unproven players. So you trade Robinson, draft Lawrence and he busts. You’ve used two important pieces to create another hole. As for questionable buy in. What’s that about? How have you come to that conclusion?

    You too? Ive had one of the most difficult periods of my life since Dec.4.
  13. Insane Mock With Trades That May Not Be So Crazy

    From my perspective I don’t see why you chose certain moves. Trading Jones for a 4th then spending a second on a WR. They may trade Jones but I think it would be for cap reasons not because of performance. Trading Robinson for a third then using a first on a DT? Trading players that are very good for lessor assets then expending high draft picks to replace them just doesn’t seem the right approach to me. Especially with potential pro bowl caliber players available at positions of need. Getting pressure off the edge will help the DT get penetration. The trade down doesn’t bother me however the combination of trading Robinson and drafting a DT is just a non starter for me.

    Just heard an interesting idea floated on TSN. Earlier today Bergevin stated publicly the Canadiens weren’t ready to contend so he wasn’t trading top prospects or picks. Following that they floated the idea Montreal might be considering a trade where they buyout a bad contract for a team in return for a roster player. They have over 9 million in cap room so it could be a good move.
