  1. Lions sign a wide receiver

    There is another angle. Veterans can mentor outside of their position group. Diet, training, how to be a pro are all valuable. I’m not saying he’s the guy as I don’t know much about him.

    Happy Birthday Slim 🍾🎂

    It certainly seems that way.

    Frankly I’m amazed at Miggy losing his power, completely. Its like it just vanished.

    Boy, the Detroit Tigers are bad at baseball. They better hope they develop 6 pitchers with the skills of Sandy Koufax because they sure lack anything resembling power in the lineup. 50 games and 39 HR. The team leader has 6. 👀

    I don’t usually agree with negotiating new deals for guys that are signed, with term. However given the Lions current state I would work new deals with snacks and Slay. They both walk the walk and bring it every game. Pay the men.
  7. Are we really as bad as people think?

    I can’t disagree with much of what you’ve said. They need to call plays that allow Stafford to utilize his arm, more. No point in having him if it’s going to be a dink and dunk offence. I can live with balance but balance that includes the dink, dunk passes as part of the running game. The line! I believe in building inside, outside front to back so I agree about RG. In fairness, They’re probably right and Im wrong but I would’ve been more comfortable seeing the line improved. I capitulated on the Stafford pick. Everyone said when you get the chance you take a franchise QB. Well I think it’s safe to say the Lions have failed during Stafford era. It’s imperative they protect him for his last years and really give him the opportunity to win.
  8. Let's try to get Suh back home

    This had been rumoured for some time. I think they felt he was under performing his contract.

    And they cut McCoy.
  10. Are we really as bad as people think?

    I think its a few reasons, 1. His statistics were middle of the road. 2. Watching the offence was boring and pretty predictable last year. Lets face it. Fans are driven by numbers and the Lions offence didn’t impress last year. Frankly I thought the play calling really failed to take advantage of Stanford’s abilities.
  11. Lions Select TE T.J. Hockenson #8 Overall

    Stafford has improved his touch over the years but when he’s excited he sometimes simply lets a rocket go. His touch and habit of totally misjudging dump offs and swing passes are my two biggest complaints with his play. I would much rather see Stafford throwing 20+ yards than less than 10.
  12. Lions Select LB Jahlani Tavai #43 Overall

    Gil Brandt created the scouting and evaluation process used by most of the NFL. The man has credentials. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gil_Brandt https://www.si.com/mmqb/2016/04/26/gil-brandt-nfl-draft-history

    Given the years of failure people aren’t simply going to jump on the bandwagon. The Lions are bad until they prove otherwise.
  14. Let's try to get Suh back home

    I would prefer they wait and see if McCoy gets cut in Tampa.
