  1. Do The Lions Fire JBC?

    Let's face it, it goes even higher than that. When WCF died there was a brief window of optimism, then when it turned out Martha was taking over that was like a bucket of cold water. Then when they fired Lewand and Mayhew there was hope they would hire a football guy to run the whole show, instead they hired the guy who ran the Ford family's tax write-off. Those were red flags, but it wasn't till last night that it became obvious and undeniable that WCFs dysfunction was never excised and has now re-infected the whole organization.
  2. Week 1: MNF Jets @ Lions

    I was being sarcastic. I think you're acting like you're dispassionate and logical as an excuse for looking through rose colored glasses to an illogical degree.
  3. Week 1: MNF Jets @ Lions

    Ok, tell you what. You're so darned reasonable and level headed, why don't you tell me what their record is going to be at the end of the season. You must think they're still going to be in the hunt for a playoff slot, right?
  4. MNF - Jets vs Lions

    This statement by itself is irrefutable proof that you have no idea on this EARTH what being a Lions fan is like

    Even with their collapse, the Bears looked fifty times better than the Lions looked tonight.
  6. Week 1: MNF Jets @ Lions

    We're headed for 2-14. The OL, as I feared, is no better than it was and the DL is much much worse than I even feared.
  7. Training Camp and Preseason

    Haha and there go the Bears passing us again. Good thing we kept those picks in 19 and 20 that we'll use on guys who might be good by 2023. Either that or they'll be traded for a 5th-6th round pick swap.
  8. Week 1: MNF Jets @ Lions

    I promise, if the Lions get the ball first they will turn it over either directly for a TD or for a very short field which results in a score. If the Jets get it, Darnold will lead a TD drive featuring at least one completion of 40+ yards. After that, I still feel the Lions will probably come around and win the game but won't cover the 6.5. Bad offense v bad defense, pretty good offense v pretty good defense. Result: low scoring game. Lions 19, Jets 17
  9. Lions release DE Anthony Zettel; claimed by Browns

    I'm not saying I'm 100% behind the Lions' reasoning on this but I'll break it down for you. - Zettel was playing into the 4th quarter in the 4th preseason game so there was already an indication he was slipping down the depth chart. - He had 6.5 sacks last season but only .5 of them came in the last 8 games, indicating even that production may have been a flash in the pan. - In the preseason, he had several plays in the earlier games where he recklessly crashed inside on run plays, gave up the edge, and big runs ensued. This is something that both he, and the Lions' D as a whole, had problems with in the past also. - We know that Patricia runs a system where players have very specific roles and jobs, and if someone doesn't do their job consistently, they're gone. - I don't know Romeo Okwara, who the Lions signed from the Giants, but it seems that the Lions think he can do the specific role for a backup end they have in mind (which seemingly includes holding the edge on run plays) better than Zettel can. That is what caused him to be cut at this time. Zettel has good qualities as a depth guy and could possibly hold a starting job on a team that has adequate pass rush from other players. I'm sure Browns fans will like him, he's tough and hard working if not supremely talented.

    Go ahead and do what I did, go back 25 years and look at every player the Lions have drafted in the first round after pick 18, which is where they'd be with Mack on the team, imo. Aside from Jarrad and Ragnow, who are still undefined (though Davis is not on a good track at the moment), I had to go back to Jeff Hartings to find a player I wouldn't trade for a bag of kicking tees. Lions should have matched this deal without a second thought.
  11. Training Camp and Preseason

    The Lions absolutely should have traded for Mack. Everyone including all the players know the Lions aren't serious about improving, and winning, NOW. They're just following the process on their latest 5 year plan that won't make it to year 3 because they never make the moves needed to get it to start working by year 2.
  12. Training Camp and Preseason

    Yes you were. Your excuse was, those are all guys who won't be on the team. Well, almost all the guys who will be on the team have been awful in this preseason also.
  13. Training Camp and Preseason

    I'll say it again, if they come out against the Jets and look great, then all this falls by the wayside. But if you can't see that numerous alarm bells are going off, in every area of the team from ownership to the 53rd man on the roster, you're forgetting everything you have ever experienced in being a Lions fan
  14. Training Camp and Preseason

    Sure, that's today. What's your excuse for the way all the guys who will be on the roster have played
  15. Training Camp and Preseason

    Unless Patricia has some truly miraculous defensive planning in store, we're going to be in huge trouble
