  1. Good place to be almost one year later. Great way to start a rebuild. https://lionswire.usatoday.com/2022/01/28/detroit-lions-2021-rookie-class-ranking-sewell-st-brown-jerry-jacobs/
  2. He did more with this roster than I expected. I was very skeptical of the hire. Liked the person, questioned the coaching ability. Love the attitude and swagger he brings to the team. I love how they finished strong. I think he turned Goff around and, given more weapons, would like to see him develop Goff even more. I loved that he had almost a plug and play for RB. All the backs seemed to be very successful especially when he took over the play calling. He put together a very good coaching staff. I'll be interested to see if there is a fall off if AG leaves. Our rookies played well and
  3. I'm curious if you perfer KT over Hutch, or do you think Hutch will be the #1 pick?
  4. I was offered 5 and 7 for #2 (not going to happen) then was offered #13 and #44 for #7. I ended up with this: 5) Kayvon Thibedeaux Edge Oregon 13) Devin Loyd LB Utah 28) Jaquan Brisker S PSU 34) Perrion Winifrey DT OK 44) Kenny Pickett QB Pitt 66) Brandon Smith LB PSU 105) Erik Ezukanma WR Texas Tech 143) Josh Jobe CB Alabama Defense heavy, I was really looking for a WR in round 2-3, but I just found talent I liked better. I wanted to emphasize building the defense and picking up a backup qb/developmental qb. I would like a draft similar to t
  5. Congrats on the win gentlemen! It's good to see Stafford get the playoff monkey off of his back. I always knew he was capable if he had a decent team around him. Good luck next week!
  6. I fully intend to see my post quoted next year with a "lol" under it. I really like the direction the Lions are going. At the end of the day, my opinion is still based on the Lions not being able to overcome adversity, and their lack of talent. They appear that they might be able to overcome that adversity, but....they won 3 games this year. That's it. Even with new coaching in place for the teams you listed above, I believe those teams are currently more talented than Detroit. I don't think most of those teams are looking at complete rebuilds but to be better than what they were. This is quit
  7. https://www.mlive.com/lions/2022/01/broncos-request-to-interview-lions-dc-aaron-glenn-for-head-coaching-vacancy.html So this is what it feels like to have coaches desired by other organizations. I'd hate to see him go, but he's definitely earned it.
  8. We each are allowed to make our own opinions, but I try not to let the exception make the rule. AO is a really great player. I think most have known this since last year, but I think a really good #2 or 1b is about right. I could see him flirting with the pro bowl every now and then, but not be arguably the best corner in the league.
  9. I'm pretty optimistic about this leadership going forward. I think Dan Campbell and Brad Holmes could be an attractive duo for Free agents moving forward. They have shown a tremendous ability to develop young talent. They have made the team competitive even when they shouldn't be. Dan Campbell has some serious stones. I don't think we need to be in a hurry to replace Goff. I think he can be more than serviceable moving forward, but the Lions will have to surround him with talent. I think the build of the team needs to be Defense and running game. This way yo
  10. For me and in regards to Pickett, I'm intrigued with him and that's about it. If we took him before the 2nd I probably wouldn't be happy as we have so many other needs. I think we would be much better off getting some WR to see what we have in Goff. I'm not quite ready to give up on him and I would feel our 2nd or higher would be essentially a nod in that direction. Now other teams who are more developed, I could see him going mid to late first.
  11. I agree about QB this year going number 2. I was really shocked to see any mock site do that. I'm wondering though if anyone is desperate enough to try to make something happen. I could see Pickett going into the top 10, because of the weak qb class and you either have a qb or you're looking for one. He also has played well this year (but it would still be shocking to me).
  12. I was looking at WalterFootball (I know, they're hacks), and I think Charlie Campbell had Kenny Pickett going number 2 to Detroit. If Detroit does that...well I don't know what I'd do, but I'd imagine puking would be involved. However if teams are possibly looking at him at #2, a trade down might not be such a bad idea. I know I've really been on the Hutchison or bust bandwagon, but depending on what we got in return might be worth the trade. Does anyone see any teams they think might make a move for Pickett at 2, and if so what would you want in return from them?
  13. who has played well as the right guard and has also served as an invaluable mentor to rookie right tackle Penei Sewell. This was an interesting quote in the article. I was not aware of this. I hope to see a lot more of this from other players as the team is going to be getting a lot younger over the next couple of years.
  14. You're projecting a lot into what I am saying. At this current time, I've doubled (past tense per the post at the time it was written) their win total. if they win out and I picked them to win four games, it will no longer be doubled. I didn't say I was doubling their win total from this year. I am picking them to win 4 games. I picked them to win 0-3 this year, albeit closer to 0 because of the talent issue, in other posts. At this point in time, I'm just not as high on them as everyone else is for this year and next. They haven't shown me anything different in terms of winning. They still
  15. and don't say I'm being pessimistic. I doubled their win total from this year. Most teams would love that.
