  1. 2020 Free Agency

    I’d pass on a running back in FA. Use money to fill other needs. I could see Quinn moving back into the first round or get lucky in the second round & pick up Jonathon Taylor.
  2. Post Combine Thoughts

    Really don’t care if they use their 3rd pick or trade down to get more picks, as long as they spend their 1st three picks on defensive players. A lot of that will have to do with who they may pick up in FA. Defense has to be a priority in this draft. Could care less about getting a running back or another wide receiver. Offensive lineman is also be a need. But watching other teams excel because their defenses is getting old. Take GB for an example. They beefed up their defense & it made a difference seeing Rogers & the offense was sub par. Also SF who’s defense won games for them also. As far as the secondary goes, they will benefit greatly from a pass rush that doesn’t allow QB’s to sit back in the pocket all day long. Pressure causes QB’s to rush & that leads to mistakes and turnovers. For me Defense will lead the Lions back to getting into the playoffs & build confidence.... which ultimately could lead to a Super Bowl. Also, the defense needs to get that “Bad Boys” type reputation. Mean, arrogant, in your face mentality!!
  3. Paul Pasqualoni and Jeff Davidson--Out!

    I would like to see the Lions interview Brent Venables -Clemson & Phil Parker-Iowa. Also would wait to see what happens in Philly & Dallas. Rumors are that an early exit from playoffs could mean Jim Swartz will be let go & if a new Head Coach is brought in for the Cowboys Rod Marinelli maybe will be released. Just hoping Patricia doesn’t rush his selection & for gods sake, no Patriots or old buddy’s!!
  4. Very Sad! Prayers for the Jones Family

    Feeling pretty sad for the Jones family. Just another crappy way to end a already bad season. https://www.freep.com/story/sports/nfl/lions/2019/12/28/marvin-jones-son-dies-marlo-detroit-lions/2766583001/
  5. Williams will be cheaper than Ramsey & without the drama. As far as Decker goes move him to the inside or to the right. Or if Decker is playing well, Williams can & has played right side. He would be an upgrade over Wagner. Pass protection has been good, but run blocking is not there. If you watch any video on him, like the one they played last night on MNF, they showed how he gets out & moves around to block down field for runners. He’s big strong & smart. He is what we are lacking on our OL. Wait till we play Green Bay, Minnesota, Chicago & Dallas. We’ll see where our OL ranks after playing some really good defenses. Then we can come back to this discussion & say should of, could of. Can’t hurt to see what it would take to get him.
  6. Forget Ramsey.... Let’s work out a trade with Washington for Trent Willams and get some help on the offensive line. I think he could be the deal, like Snacks that could help solidify the offensive line & improve our running game.
  7. One easy fix, two words... Trust Me!!

    Stafford may have hit the nail on the head. After Bevell calls a time out that cost us a 1st down & the game, a frustrated Stafford is shown pacing the sideline yelling Trust Me!! He evidently audibled out of a Bevell play and delivered the first down they needed to clinch the win, but for the lack of trust to believe he could deliver, Bevell calls the time out. Any quarterback who has played this many years & had played a pretty damn good game should not be questioned on what he sees by a defense. They need to let him run this offense.
  8. Raiders just released Brandon Marshall. Should the Lions take a look. Would help shore up our linebacker group & bring in a veteran to help with the younger players.
  9. Trade: TE Michael Roberts to the Patriots

    Green Bay just picked up Roberts.
  10. Lions sign a wide receiver

  11. Lions Select LB Jahlani Tavai #43 Overall

    Shannon Sharpe, Bo Jackson, Terrell Davis, Adalius Thomas, Robert Mathis Brent Celek, Kam Chancellor, Trent Cole, Richard Sherman, Antonio Brown. Just a small group of 5th round or later talent over looked in the 1st four rounds. Don’t judge until they play!
  12. Lions Select TE T.J. Hockenson #8 Overall

    Ask Montez Sweat how good of a blocker he is. Senior vs Junior, Outback Bowl. Watch the highlights of that game. Hockenson owned Sweat. Worse game Sweat had all season. One of the reasons Hockenson numbers receiving were down, he was a monster blocker & was out there to stop the best defensive player every game. He is going to elevate our running game. Can’t wait to see him against the best defensive players in the league.
  13. Lions Select TE T.J. Hockenson #8 Overall

    Sure the dream was Josh Allen falls to us but that didn’t happen. Picking Hockenson to me was the right move. Still plenty of defensive help can be picked up in 2nd & 3rd round and we may move to get an extra pick in one of those rounds. Picking A.J. at 8 works for me for 3 reasons. He will bolster our run game, he is a middle of the field threat that will keep defenses honest and finally & most importantly.... he’s a Red Zone threat! I am tired of kicking field goals and leaving points off the board.
  14. Lions sign RB CJ Anderson

    CJ Anderson was signed for $1.5 million with a $200,000 signing bonus. Not bad for a running back who won’t get a ton of touches but is capable of making a difference in short yardage plays.
