  1. Offseason trades and signings

    So for the first time since Jerry Vainisi, we've signed an actual football guy, who other teams actually wanted, to run personnel. I hope and pray he doesn't run afoul of Ford or his/her lackeys the way Vainisi did.
  2. *2018 PREDCITIONS*

    I'm thinking 10-6 at best. The D isn't close to where it needs to be in the front seven and I'll believe the OL is better when I see it. However, the team can do two things that get you wins in todays league: pass and defend the pass. In other predictions I will say anyone who's expecting the Packers to be like 5 years ago just bc Rodgers is back is in for a disappointment. But the Vikings are going to be really good, darn them.
  3. Owens declines HoF Ceremony Invitation

    They need to rescind his induction. You can't show up to get the gold jacket, you don't get one.
  4. Offseason trades and signings

    I continue to shake my head at all of you who think the Lions are getting a draft pick for a guy with his numbers. 400 yards a season, 3.7 yd average, 6 whole rushing touchdowns in 3 years. You could trip over a guy like that walking from your house to your car. No team's giving up a pick for that. They will carry Abdullah through camp just in case of injuries and if there aren't any, he will get cut.
  5. Lions Patricia Indicted for Sexual Assault in '96

    That's a pretty big "probably," guy. Maybe the testimony was the only thing they had, and without it they had nothing at all. I'm not bending over backward to say I know he's innocent, just saying none of us know anything.
  6. Offseason trades and signings

    If that was a "career year" then I'd rather have the pick.
  7. Round 3, Pick 82- S Tracy Walker

    Why was he a late riser? I dunno man, I'm not an NFL scout. I didn't hear it from someone on ESPN, anyway. If you're telling me it was because the Patriots manipulated the media to raise him above Wynn bc that's who they wanted, and the Lions made a pick based on that instead of their own scouting, I don't even know where to start on that.
  8. Round 3, Pick 82- S Tracy Walker

    Man you're silly So we're supposed to believe that anything we hear about other teams wanting our picks is crap, not worth a damn, but we're supposed to take your word for it that the Patriots are some kind of genius mastermind manipulators and no other teams have scouts or can form their own opinions. foh with that crap Btw "the Patriots" didn't start in the SEC for three years with Arkansas level talent around them and not give up a sack.
  9. Round 2, Pick 43: Kerryon Johnson

    Well, there have been comparisons to LeVeon, patient running style, big and strong enough though not huge, runs inside a lot. Personally I'll believe that when I see it
  10. Round 5, Pick 153: Tyrell Crosby, OT

    That's really gross man. What the hell is a matter with you I mean look, you're a negative dude, that's your schtick, whatever. But there's no call to go saying stuff like that, that's just ridiculous
  11. Round 4, Pick 114: Da'Shawn Hand DE

    Here's the way to look at this. If the Lions had used their third round pick on Hand instead of Walker, what would your opinion be? Let's look at the defensive linemen they could have had between their third round pick and the pick they used: Justin Jones, Deadrin Senat, Arden Key, Harrison Phillips, Jalyn Holmes. Would you rather have any of those? Maybe Phillips, I didn't love him that much though. Anyway, Hand is a better fit for the 5 tech - 3-4 end role they seemed to want to fill than him. Key would have been an interesting choice but they didn't take an edge guy at all, maybe they feel they don't need one. So if they'd used the third round pick for him, it would still be understandable even if there are legit concerns about Hand's ability and effort, which I share. They just moved next year's third up, instead.
  12. Round 3, Pick 82- S Tracy Walker

    I liked Wynn and Hernandez, but coming into draft week, knowing Ragnow was rising, I looked into him more and I'd say the three were pretty equal for me by draft time. Wynn is the quality name from the quality program, Hernandez is the tough guy, and Ragnow is the guy most respected by the metrics people like PFF. We should really be discussing this in the other thread though. I don't know anything at all about Tracy Walker and I'd like to learn more

    I'm going to choose to believe that Patricia's coaching will make an immediate difference until I'm shown otherwise. You don't change coaches not expecting the new one to make a difference, and they usually make a difference in their first year if they're going to at all. The Lions have a competitive roster. There's no team in the league that doesn't have some kind of hole or weakness. My expectations are the same as any team should have. Playoffs, playoff wins, division titles, championship. Any new coaching staff in this league gets 2, maybe 3, years to achieve those goals or show they're on their way to them. I expect the Lions to win the division or come very close to it. Now.
  14. Round 3, Pick 82- S Tracy Walker

    Just goes to show, we should be talking about draft picks based on something other than our perceived value at the position they're picked at, because face it, we have no damn idea and it's pretentious as hell to talk like we do. Even guys like Schefter have no real idea but at least they get paid for their dumb opinions
