  1. The Lions Den: Visiting Free Agents

    Free Agency is something teams can go to and grab the last couple pieces for their run, or a complete dumpster fire can go to and add overpay for talent. Big names are great. There have been a bunch of guys who could have contributed, but like @Sllim Pickens said, it's about drafting, development, and implementing the system. It's no going to be flashy or exciting all the time. I've also been a Patriots fan my whole life, and I've watched Belichick groom a bunch of guys into stars only to watch them walk when they have to pay them. Half the battle is allocating your resources properly. So far I think they've been doing that well. I know I'm in the minority on some of those thoughts, though.
  2. The Lions Den: Visiting Free Agents

    I'm confident that they're building the roster for the long haul. This is exactly what the Patriots do every year. We're just not used to it. If they do this right, and I believe so far they have, and Patricia can coach and lead on his own, I think we're going to be very happy Lions fans for a long time. I've been begging the football Gods for this very scenario to happen, so I'm all in right now. I don't think they're going to roll to a SB or anything next year, but I love what I've seen so far. However, I'm interested to see how they handle the draft and how things play out this year, of course.

    **ANNOUNCEMENT** 1. I manually selected all of the keepers and processed the draft. However, many teams have more than one player missing. Pick up someone ASAP. 2. As a result of makeup picks and holes on rosters, please DO NOT add/drop anyone that wasn’t an original pick until Tuesday, March 20th at 8am. That gives everyone some time to catch up. 3. I’m sorry for any errors on the draft board this year. I try to do my best with a relatively busy real life, but stuff happens. The end of the draft got pretty muddy and confusing and I’m sure I made more than one error. That’s on me. Next year we can all do a better job of making things more clear. For now, I apologize for any mistakes on my end. I try hard not to make them, but they do happen from time to time. 4. I expected Bo BIchette to be added to the player pool by now. He is not. As a result, I will force my team to compete with 1 OPEN roster spot at ALL times this year until he’s added. That means I’m rostering 22 players, not 23. I won’t let myself pick up a DL player with his spot either. I will force myself to put someone else in the DL slot (example: Michael Conforto) before I can pick someone else up to add to the DL or my roster. Bo’s slot will not be used for any roster manipulation on my part, and you all are more than welcome to keep an eye on it and call me out if I make a mistake. I’m waiting on Bo. In heindsifht, it was pretty dumb on my part. ** After much doubt, we got the draft done in 16.5 days. I said 16 was the fastest we could slot it out, no one thought it could be done, and we almost hit the 16 day mark exactly. A big thanks to everyone being pretty active during that time. Hopefully we can take that activity over here to the league thread and have another fun season. Thanks, guys! Best of luck this season!

    The draft board was updated pretty late. When I did it, we were into the last round. Perhaps s it was my mistake. It certainly could be, and if it was, I apologize. We got to a point at the end of the draft where i was pretty lost on some of the names, what pick we were on, and what picks were make up picks and what we’re just time slot picks. We absurd amount of late picks, which can be expected with right slots, but pick numbers were rarely involved. I’m not saying you did any of that. I just got lost with some of it. That’s on me, too. The other night when I was working on the board I gave up mid way through and just submitted what I had, so I’m sure it’s not the only error. Feel free to pick whoever you want and just throw them in your roster whenever. I know that’s not the same as picking earlier, but It was a mess all around. I’m just glad it’s over.

    @Dingo18287 - Just and a heads up, @I_GET_SAX‘s last pick belongs to me. I’ll have to double check who is ahead of him, but just throwing it out there.

    I've always felt like missed tackles is a bit of a subjective stat. I'm a big proponent of always defaulting back to the tape and letting that be your guide at the end of the day.

    Really like that deal for both teams. It's nice to see some trades going down this offseason that move some big names. With that said, I'm open to moving Strasburg, Ohtani, Fulmer, Encarnacion, Justin Upton, any of my veterans. I'm looking for an offensive upgrade and a top end SP.

    Went to fill in the draft board but the draft thread is a mess between people missing picks, not filling out name/position, etc. The slots are slotted out for Saturday to the end of the draft. Make sure your roster is full. I'm moving the keepers to 23. Select everyone on your roster as a keeper and we'll finalize things this weekend.

    Since we have a tracking thread for Lions offseason news here, I’ll lock this thread for the sake of organization. However, you’re more than welcome to make a tread tracking draft prospect rumors, news, visits, etc.
