  1. 4 for 4

    I actually think he may go in the third round. The Lions have had a swinging door at backup QB. Tyree is an interesting prospect and Stafford needs to have someone behind him. It would be in the Lions best interests to have a young player with tools that can develop. There’s a few other QB’s the Lions might like in this range I just chose Tyree ecause I prefer him. Stafford isn’t old but he isn’t a kid either.
  2. The Lions Den: The Anything Thread

    I’m torn. Its nice to see him back with the Wings however a part of me wanted to see him truly come home, to Ottawa, and take over the Senators although I wouldn’t wish Eugene Melnyk on anyone. Although it would’ve been a long shot, going to Edmonton to take command of my once proud Oilers was also in my head. Until Daryl Katz foregoes surrounding himself with ex Oiler heroes and cleans house the franchise is doomed. I don’t know why I would hope for Yzerman to take either of those jobs. I mean why would an experienced GM with options even consider it? Ken Holland publicly announced he was removing himself from consideration for the Oilers job. Think about that? The Oilers are so bad organizationally he publicly announced he wasn’t interested. Or, he’s going to take the Seattle job. Either way, I think it reflects poorly on the Oilers. I wish Yzerman nothing but success. He’s a class act!
  3. Possible Trade-Back Scenarios

    Bill Bellichick is the greatest football mind in NFL history. Not just the game but all the intangibles. He knows how to select individuals that mentally and emotionally click. Each year he fields a competent team that plays for each other. Everyone talks about communication but he seems to have the ability to communicate so his audience comprehends. I hate the Patriots but I have to give him his due.
  4. Possible Trade-Back Scenarios

    CJ was in a different category. CJ gave it his all, was productive, played through injury. CJ could carry an offence. CJ was a fan favourite and sold tickets.

  6. 2019 Schedule

    As it stands 7-9 or 8-8. I think the draft. Camp cuts and a few more free agents could change that significantly.
  7. Official 2018-2019 NHL Thread

    It’s not uncommon for the team winning the Presidents trophy to get ousted. Huge upset but I think a bit premature to think the Jackets will continue that level of play. In any event it was a great performance.

  10. Possible Trade-Back Scenarios

    I understand the Patriot way of doing things however the Patriots don’t draft top 10 so comparing top ten picks with the last few picks in the first round isn’t really relevant. The Patriots look for guys based on where they’re drafting. Do you think the Patriots would choose not to add elite talent if they drafted top 10? The Lions draft scenarios are totally opposite to the Patriots. I read the bit about Williams. Assumptions can be made about anything Quinn says.
  11. Lions Den - Introductions

    The first time I was in Detroit was for a Lions game as well.
  12. Possible Trade-Back Scenarios

    I think Quinn has been blowing smoke. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised to see them move up for Allen or maybe even Oliver. If they do move back I would expect it will be a small move unless there’s a significant haul attached to it. All of this seems predicated on how satisfied the Lions are with the pass rush. If they like the rush then trade backs make sense. They can grab a corner and a lesser know DE. The trade should offer sufficient picks to allow Detroit to leverage the second round pick to move up and get another low first round pick. I think the draft will be exciting this year.
  13. Lions Den - Introductions

    I grew up in Edmonton, Alberta which is a bit over 3000 km. From Detroit. Ive been a fan since 1963.
  14. Possible Trade-Back Scenarios

    When Stafford is in form and the play calling is right he’s phenomenal. I think the stats you listed are exactly what the offence needs to be effective.
  15. Possible Trade-Back Scenarios

    Unfortunately Stafford can’t play forever and to date the Lions have squandered the best QB in franchise history.
