  1. I'd take #12 straight up for Stafford, TBH. I would take it and run. And I also would not move up for a QB in the draft. If one falls to #7, great. If not, sit back and take BPA and build your team. We have Chase Daniel under contract. We can sign a young QB as an UDFA (or even draft Mac Jones in the 2nd or 3rd rd) and let it ride for a year while developing other players and then go after a QB next year. I definitely wouldn't reach though. San Fran would definitely be the team I'd set the bar with though.
  2. I would take #12 straight up for Stafford. Detroit is picking #7. Giving Dorsey/Holmes #7 & #12 to start the rebuild is HUGE for the Lions. Even if they don't get one of the QBs there, they can add two playmakers to build around right there. Let most of their free agents go and collect some comp picks next season (Okwara, Golladay, Jones). Add some players at each level to build around. Offense- RB-Swift, TE-Hockenson, OL-Decker, Jackson, Ragnow Defense- CB-Oruwariye, Okudah, DL-????, LB-?????
  3. Per Rod Woods about hiring HC Dan Campbell Everyone wants to talk about biting kneecaps, but the Lions vetted this guy and hired him for numerous reasons. Building a strong staff was one of the reasons.

  5. Mickey Loomis spoke highly of Dan Campbell and said this very thing. He is a man and coach players/coaches will come to work with. I find it amusing that everyone wants to judge his hire based off of a 30 second sound byte. Lions didn't hired him for biting knee caps. He's qualified. He wasn't my top choice, but I'm loving what it being built here right now.
  6. Per Wikipedia. Apparently, he's been AHC in Philly for the last few seasons, and numerous players went to bat for him to become HC after Pederson was fired. Same situation as Campbell in NO. No coordinator experience, but has been in a head coaching role as second in command for a number of years. When the Eagles did not even interview him for the HC position, he asked to be released as he had interest from other teams.
  7. Detroit Lions interviewing Rams CB coach Aubrey Pleasant for DB coach job Young up and coming position coach, beloved by his players, and Flint native.

  10. Will be interested in the narrative if Duce gets a HC job after this. People, supposedly, don’t like Campbell getting a HC job because he was not a coordinator (he was AHC/position coach), but knew the team, city, and could bring a good staff around him (as we are seeing). Will be interesting if Duce gets the same doubt of qualification from being a AHC/position coach. Otherwise, this is a GREAT hire for the Lions. I am amazed by the staff they are putting together.
  11. Great get for the Lions. And a good AHC like people wanted for Campbell.
  12. Word on Twitter is Duce Staley has asked the Eagles to release him as he has interest from the Bears and Lions.
  13. The Lions are hiring ex-Browns and Chiefs GM John Dorsey away from Philly. His title will be Senior Personnel Executive, and he should be a good resource for new GM Brad Holmes. Dorsey's been planning on this for a couple weeks. Deal's not done yet, should be in place mid-week. This is a great get for the Lions to help Holmes maneuver his way as GM.
