  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 we had the chance. Quit worrying about replacing Diggs & Slay and start building a dominated front force.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!!
  10. 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!!
  11. 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/
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. https://apple.news/A-rBGaRTMTTWaP4544LJv6A
  17. 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!
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. He’s 28, 4 yrs younger than Blount. Did quite well in the playoffs against top teams every week. Did well the final 2 games of the season. We got him cheaper than most. What’s wrong with this deal. Every year people over evaluate every little thing. And when he plays this season and has 80 plus yards in a game, no one will step forward & admit they were wrong. Just wait and see before condemning. I actually think we did well in FA across the board & still have plenty left to spend when after the draft teams start cutting more players. So relax
  22. With all the talk that Arizona looking to move Josh Rosen, should the Lions throw they’re hat into the ring. I think he would make a good back up to Stafford & won’t be rushed into a starting role, allowing him to study & learn. If the price was right to pick Rosen up, would want to pick him up??
  23. Just got done watching the 2018 highlights on quite a few possibilities at #8. And one stood out over all the others to me. LSU LB Devon White. If he is there at #8 I would select him over anyone else & if an offer for a trade back comes in, it would have to be an offer you can’t refuse! This kid is 20 and is a beast at linebacker. He fills a glaring need on this team. His speed, tackling & reading the other teams offense is excellent. He will be a pro bowler one day & it should be in a Lions Jersey. His blitzing skills are fantastic & if you watch him against Kerryon Johnson in college, he owned him. White is the real deal & a great addition to our D
