  1. It’s nice to see Sheila is actually bringing in personnel to turn this organization around. But it’s still only one piece to a large puzzle! Hopefully Chris will help bring in more valuable pieces
  2. Why Bill Cowher???? Here’s why.... In Cowher’s 15 seasons, the Steelers captured eight division titles, earned 10 postseason playoff berths (including six straight in his first six seasons), played in 21 playoff games, advanced to six AFC Championship games and made two Super Bowl appearances. He is one of only six coaches in NFL history to claim at least seven division titles. At the conclusion of the 2005 season, the Steelers had the best record of any team in the NFL since Cowher was hired as head coach. Tell me you wouldn’t like anything close to that, here in Detroit!
  3. Hire experience for both, with both being done by one man.... Bill Cowher! Pay his price & quit playing games.
  4. If Sheila wants to get everyone in Detroit & the NFL’s attention, she should go with a blank check & pay a visit to Bill Cowher. Offer him the GM & Head Coaching job, while asking him what it would take to get his services. Then put that amount on the check and seal the deal. Bringing him to Detroit will be more valuable than any players contract on the team.
  5. Dak went down tonight with a leg injury, status not looking good. This could be a chance to offer up a trade to Jerry for Stafford. Get rid of his big salary & get some decent picks in return. Jerry has always wanted Stafford & nows his chance. I think that this is something the Lions need to look at this year if anyone losses a starting QB. Time to move on from Stafford.
  6. Read this today & saw the pictures..... Jarrad Davis has turned into a physical beast, let’s see if it transforms onto the field. He went from 227 to 248 pounds, Dropped his body fat from 14% to 9.8% & Increased his bench press from 297 to 375. Looks to me like he is taking this season seriously, hopefully it translates to more speed & physical player. https://www.prideofdetroit.com/2020/5/29/21274762/photos-jarrad-davis-got-crazy-swole-this-offseason
  7. Look at Bill Belichick or Sean Payton when they first started out. Rebuilds take time & until they play this year, I’m not going to judge this staff. I believe they made some big moves this off season to build a solid team who will play better as an over all unit. The draft is seen as pretty good one by everyone outside of the Detroit media. So I’m holding judgement until they play & I’m not scared by their schedule. Playing tough teams makes you better & if your going to make the playoffs & win there, you need to play the tough competition.
  8. I think Shelton will need to step up his game to keep this kid from being a starter. The video on him shows his speed & brute force. He will be double teamed all day & still will be a nightmare. Big time pick in my opinion. https://www.prideofdetroit.com/2020/5/6/21249057/video-watch-john-penisinis-film-breakdown-utah-defensive-coordinator
  9. I predict that this time next year or maybe sooner, people are going to wish we selected Simmons instead of Okudah! Okudah is not going to fill the void left by Slay & could be a total bust. Can’t wait till Simmons becomes a dominant force in the league & everyone starts whinnying and calling out Quinn for a bad draft choice.
  10. Should insist for #5 & #26. And with the 5th pick, take ISAIAH SIMMONS. I have been watch a lot of highlights on him, mainly the championship game. He is going to be a stud in the league & we’ll be discussing could of, should of if we don’t take him. Build D line & LB’s to shut down these QB’s from sitting back there picking us apart.
  11. I’ve really like the idea of trading back, no matter who is there at #3. And i’m Convinced that ISAIAH SIMMONS should be our pick with our 1st pick. I watched a lot of his highlights videos & mainly the Championship game. He can do it all. Pass rush, drop into coverage, run stopper. I believe we need to shore up our linebackers & D line, which will take pressure off the secondary by not giving the QB’s all day to sit back in the pocket & pick our secondary apart. I believe Simmons is going to be a stud in this league & we’re going to look back & wish we took this guy when w
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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!!
  15. 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/
