  1. Lions sign a wide receiver

    Oh holy god Please stop with this. I don't want to be a jerk in here, but you all are gonna make me start yelling, saying stuff like this
  2. UDFA Signings Thread

    What's to hear, how well his shorts fit? We won't get any real info on the OLs till preseason games start. I have hopes for Benzschawel too.
  3. Trade: TE Michael Roberts to the Patriots

    What a horrible look. Just awful
  4. Lions sign a wide receiver

    I hear you with all that. But I also remember decades and decades of the Lions having young guys getting experience as the #3 or #4 receivers and producing nothing, like NOTHING. Guys like TJ Jones or Corey Fuller or Derrick Williams or Scotty Anderson and on and on into infinity. Damned if you do, damned if you don't I guess. I just think that if Kearse makes the team, as the season goes on and guys get hurt, or are no good, like maybe Amendola has nothing left or whatever, it'll be good to have a guy who knows what route to run.
  5. Lions sign a wide receiver

    This old cliche is one of my pet peeves. Players play, coaches coach. Players don't get signed to mentor other players. They get signed to produce on the field.
  6. Lions sign a wide receiver

    He knows Bevell's offense and something tells me come week 7 or 8 that will come in handy. I'll tell you something else, the stories I've seen the last week about how Tabor was looking really good and might turn things around... to be honest those stories make me deeply worried about the receiving corps far more than they make me optimistic about Tabor. Another veteran can't hurt imo
  7. I'm not sure what you're getting at here. Sure, the more of our starters that stay healthy, the better. Is that what you're going for? The Lions will survive a lot better if the OL is good and KJ or whoever else gets hurt, than they will if everyone's healthy and the OL remains in the bottom 5, I'll say that
  8. "adequate" blocking? no. adequate won't get them over .500
  9. Of course not but I feel it's several times greater than any other one. I feel confident that the defense will be acceptable at worst, as long as they're not put under terrible strain by a bad offense. The run and pass games also have enough personnel to be acceptable, if the blocking isn't garbage
  10. #1 key is the offensive line. Everything gets better if they're good. But like I said last year, I'll believe it when I see it, not before.

  13. Are we really as bad as people think?

    I don't think the Lions have the kind of talent level where you can say they're over .500 for sure. As usual they've got a lot of "if this guy can take a step up." And as usual they're relying on their superior smarts and planning to make up for a lack of premium talent. It's not impossible but based on their track record I can't imagine why anyone would just expect them to be good

    I don't know who could possibly think we're set at pass rush with guys like Hand, Okwara and Kennard as our premium pass rushers. Even Flowers is low on actual sack production. They really needed to get more talent at pass rush in the draft. Unless Bryant is on the level of Hand as far as unexpected value, they're going to need more next year
