  1. People are going to yell at me because I put Brady down a couple of notches. He's the best at winning, but he also had the best team around him, with the best winning culture, that I've ever seen, and he had it for nearly 20 years. Pure throwing skill, the ability to run an unstoppable passing game, counts a little bit for me as far as who I consider the best. I also can't list anyone I didn't see because that's not accurate. 1. Manning (which I hate to say because I despise him) 2. Montana 3. Brady 4. Rodgers 5. Marino 6. Young 7. Brees 8. Favre
  2. https://www.freep.com/story/sports/nfl/lions/2021/03/13/detroit-lions-sign-new-orleans-saints-josh-hill-blocking-tight-end/4679921001/ Lions sign Saints TE Josh Hill I'm sure we'll hear "now it's just the Saints Way" nonsense. But this isn't overpaying a guy who you're looking to be a key starter. This is a support-role guy.
  3. I'm totally in favor of taking Lance at #7. I think he fits perfectly with what the plan seems to be - if, of course, our FO and coaches like him enough.
  4. Even if they draft a QB they still need a veteran insurance policy and apparently Stidham ain't it
  5. The one most necessary cut of them all if you ask me. He looked like a jumbo xl size blue bag of potato chips in shoulder pads from the beginning last year. I'd be shocked if his career is not over, barring some significant physical makeover
  6. This is pretty good! I'd prefer to double up on corners instead of safeties, and I would be interested in what other options you had at DT with the pick you used on Marvin Wilson.
  7. I think Coleman still could play slot CB somewhere. He was way overpaid and the Lions had every financial incentive to cut him. He wasn't good for the Lions but he was one that I thought suffered greatly from ridiculous pass rush and coaching.
  8. Don't ask us, ask the guys under contract to this team or who might be in the near future. If they think it is, then you have a problem, don't you. If players hate being tagged in the first place, and they do, imagine how much more they hate to be tag and traded (edit: with no agreement in place with the new team). Not to say you could never do it, but I'd think that you would only do it if the benefit to your team far outweighs the hit you're going to take to your reputation with players. It doesn't here.
  9. I'm starting to like Chase as my #1 target if we pick at #7, that's assuming the QB's are gone of course
  10. Another good move. Okwara is not a double-digit-sack a year guy if you ask me.
  11. Remember, though, that compensatory picks depend not only on who you lost in free agency, but who you added also. We need to be braced for the possibility that the 2021 Lions consist of a great deal of young, cheap, no-name players with very inconsistent talent.
  12. I think they waited till the last minute to see if they got a call, but obviously they didn't. Besides the cap going down, besides the obvious rebuilding year, there's the fact that Golladay made it clear last year he needed his money and wasn't going to go out of his way to play if he didn't get it. Other teams saw that too. Putting him under the tag, either to keep or trade, wasn't going to end very well for anyone involved.
  13. Pretty much what I expected, and honestly it's the right move.
  14. Like I said elsewhere, Pitts would be like buying a $5000 set of tires before you have the Ferrari. Installing an inground swimming pool before you have your house built. Pitts would be an incompetent use of the #7 pick for a rebuilding team and therefore I don't expect this front office to do it.
  15. I, Superduperman, would like to GM the Lions.
  16. NO to Kyle Pitts for the Lions. Drafting a unique weapon to create matchups with before you have your team rebuild started is like buying christmas decorations for your new house before the foundation has been dug.
  17. They always are with first-pick. It's also crazy how you get multiple trade offers for every pick. It's just a dumb game, but I kinda like it precisely because you can do such insane things. It's fun to imagine the Lions getting a rookie class of 14 or 15 guys and entirely remaking their team. Here's another one: Round 1 Pick 31 (K.C.): Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech (A+) Round 2 Pick 9: Carlos Basham, DE/OLB, Wake Forest (A+) Round 2 Pick 10 (NYG): Daviyon Nixon, DT, Iowa (A) Round 2 Pick 17 (ARI): Eric Stokes, CB, Georgia (A-) Round 2 Pick 21 (TENN): Nick Bolton, ILB/OLB, Misso
  18. I just hope this move doesn't make it harder to cut him the moment you get someone to take his place. Doesn't really sound like it will.
  19. Round 1 Pick 24 (PITT): Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, ILB/OLB, Notre Dame (A+) Round 2 Pick 9: Alijah Vera-Tucker, OG, USC (A-) Round 2 Pick 10 (NYG): Jevon Holland, FS/SS, Oregon (A-) Round 2 Pick 17 (ARI): Javonte Williams, RB, North Carolina (B+) Round 2 Pick 23 (PITT): Nick Bolton, ILB/OLB, Missouri (A) Round 3 Pick 12 (NYG): Shaka Toney, DE/OLB, Penn State (A) Round 3 Pick 13 (LAC): Alim McNeill, DT, North Carolina State (A) Round 3 Pick 15 (ARI): Marquez Stevenson, WR, Houston (A+) Round 3 Pick 24: Greg Newsome, CB, Northwestern (A+) Round 3 Pick 33 (LAC): D'Wayne Eskridge,
  20. A. Not going to happen B. Chris Simms is an idiot C. (he also has Wilson #1 and Lawrence #2) did I mention Chris Simms is an idiot
  21. How? You don't just go from 24 to the top 10. Just to go to #10, they would have to trade their top 4 picks according to the conventional chart, or equivalent worth in players. To get to #6, the lowest slot where they would be guaranteed to get one of the top 4 QBs, their whole draft wouldn't do it.
  22. I'm still very much not in favor. It's an incompetent use of a top-10 pick. I think anyone who drafts him in the top 10 is making a mistake, so it's not a Lions-only thing.
