  1. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/29180831/ranking-2020-nfl-offseasons-worst-first-barnwell-all-32-teams#DET Mostly blaming signing a bunch of Patriots, not trading down from #3 and drafting a RB in the 2nd over a position of more need. Personally, I don't have much of an issue with signing ex Patriots at all. Sure it would be better to grow those types of players in house, but I have no problems signing players that fit this particular system well, who cares where they come from? It would have been nice to trade down in the 1st, but I kind of believe Quinn when he said there weren't any offers, and Swift was BPA on most boards, it was a fine pick. The Lions definitely still have some holes to fill, but I don't think they did terrible, more of a middle of the road off season in my eyes.
  2. The Lions Den: The Anything Thread

    Welcome to the very frustrating world of being a Tigers fan! As a Lions fan it shouldn't be very tough for you though. Who are their stars - I guess Miguel Cabrera is their only star, but he is just about completely spent at this point though. He should be a future hall of famer though, and in his prime I've never seen a better pure hitter in my life (Maybe Pujols) How do they compare to other teams - They have been one of the worst teams in baseball since 2017 and are going to continue to be one of the worst for the next couple seasons at least. There is hope though, they have a very strong group of minor league SP's that could all see the field this season (if there is a season) Casey Mize, Matt Manning and Tarik Skubal are all very promising prospects that can hopefully turn things around quickly. The minor league bats are pretty weak, but they're lead by 2019 first round pick Riley Greene. They also own the 1st pick in the next MLB draft. Key Rivals - All of the AL central teams are their key rivals. Also personally I would say the Yankees and Athletics are rivals, due to meeting them both in the playoffs multiple times in recent years. In the NL I would say the Cardinals are our main rival over there. I hope this quick rundown helps you a bit, but I would recommend reading up on the Tigers farm system some more, because that really is future of the team.

    Vikings are having a low key great draft.
  4. 2020 NFL Draft

    I think TL may have a stroke if they pass him again.
  5. Who you want? Who you got? Dear God No!!!

    I really like Taylor too, and I think he has the potential to be a special RB in the NFL, but man those ball security issues are scary.
  6. 2020 NFL Draft

    Every RB still on the board. Not sure I want one early in the 2nd, but it could be interesting.
  7. 2020 NFL Draft

    Why do they have to tell us every picks saddest story in life? I just want to have a good time and watch the draft man.
  8. 2020 NFL Draft

    Rodgers can't be happy with that
  9. 2020 NFL Draft

    Anyone else think Trey Wingo looks like a young person with old man makeup on?
  10. 2020 NFL Draft

    Tua was probably their guy all along, and they had the balls to let him fall to them and keep all their picks. Gotta give them props for that even if it was a bit of a gamble.
  11. 2020 NFL Draft

    It'll be interesting to see if any offers teams made get leaked maybe months from now. It's hard to believe they turned down any crazy offers because they liked Okudah that much, but it is the Lions so who knows.

    Taking Brown at #3 is far from my ideal scenario, but I'm not going to burn my house down over it. He will certainly help our team in a big way, I just hope they follow through with every other option.
  13. 2020 NFL Draft

    Am I crazy for wanting a ton of extra picks in a Jags trade instead of Ngakoue?
  14. 2020 NFL Draft

    I'd be totally fine with just the one extra 2nd tbh. The pick has more value than that, but the idea of turning that down, staying at #3 and taking Brown hurts my soul.
  15. 2020 NFL Draft

    So if the Lions really do have a trade already lined up with Miami for #5 (seems unlikely) What do you guys think the specifics will be? Seems like #5 and #39 for #3 is the consensus. Any chance Quinn could squeeze a little more out of them?
