  1. 2020 NFL Draft

    Can't complain too much out of this draft overall. I think Lions pulled out with three starters(Bold), and four solid back-up/rotational players(underlined). Not sure I love Cephus/Cornell. Didn't love Okudah at 3 cause I'm not sure he'll be better than Slay but we'll see. I would of liked it better if they just kept Slay/ signed Trufant/ picked Okudah. Cut Coleman. ( Just me though, personal thing. ) Heavy critique usually of this regime and stuff. Overall. Not bad. B+ grade and I consider myself pretty tough on teams. I think the run game/offensive line is improved with some strategic positions/players selected defensively. (Top Cover guy/run defense). One of the easier things in the NFL to do is improve run defense with big bodies. Being able to stop the run and being able to run limits others and creates more options for our own team. It sounds simple but both those things are building blocks to a much bigger foundation for success. Controls clock, keeps defense off the field and rested, creates a mental situation for teams that can't physically stop you and enforces a team will, makes our offense less predictable and makes other teams more predictable. Stafford's already a strength, a really good running back combo will be the best thing Stafford's had since Calvin Johnson. They really sold me the 2nd and 3rd day trying to upgrade the run game/run defense/physicality/and mentality. This might be Quinns best draft to be honest.
  2. Round 6, Pick 197: John Penisini

    Man... He's built like a tree stump. Can't say I know much about him but just after a few looks around the web he's the type of NT I like. Didn't know much before the selection though. Like this pick. Surprising get by Quinn and crew.
  3. Round 5, Pick 172: Jason Huntley

    Classic gadget type player on offense, return specialist. I like this selection and thought it was a good one. Agnew is good/ok. I don't have gripes with him but getting fresh legs returning always seems to be a trend in the NFL, returners DO NOT LAST. He's got the ceiling of someone like Darren Sporles, Josh Cribbs, Tavon Austin. He should have a solid stint at least as a returner with potential for more if used correctly in an offense. * Personally, I think he'll just be a solid/above average returner. *
  4. Round 4, Pick 121: Logan Stenberg

    I really like this guy at RG. I think he'll start to be honest. I went through and read somethings others said and will just highlight what I like. Big. Mean/Nasty. Strong hands. Above average pass protector. I actually like him better than Jonah Jackson. But now.... Jackson looks pretty solid as a back up interior linemen imo. Prolly better than Russell Bodine as a back up C/G.
  5. 2020 NFL Draft

    Oohhhh man... I don't like this pick at all. Not sure he'll ever start in the NFL. Cushenberry would of been alot better, pick, imo. Dont mind the position though. Maybe they'll swing Dahl to RG and play this kid at LG.
  6. 2020 NFL Draft

    OOOHHH shooot! lol.
  7. 2020 NFL Draft

    I guess.... JOSH JONES... Come on baby!!!
  8. 2020 NFL Draft

    Dang. Lewis was a guy I felt like teams could plug in at RG day 1 and be fine with. Seattle just made a solid pick I think. Stil leaves Josh Jones available though. Idk what teams aren't seeing in this kid but I think he can easily handle his own at RT.
  9. 2020 NFL Draft

    Meh ok not bad. Brother with brother. Not hating it but thought Josh Jones was a slam dunk honestly.
  10. 2020 NFL Draft

    JOSH JONES. Day 1 RT! Upgraded RG with Viati. Full upgrades along the line. Easy pick... Enough talent though to where they wont tick me off if they pick someone else like Edwards/Baun/Elliot/Cushenberry/Okwara/Lewis.
  11. 2020 NFL Draft

    Dang, I like Davis.
  12. 2020 NFL Draft

    Long ways till our selections but I think DT Raekwon Davis, DE A.J. Epenesa, RG John Simpson, T Josh Jones, CB Trevon Diggs, and WR Bryan Edwards are my favorites at the moment. . We'll see what happens!
  13. 2020 NFL Draft

    Well, looking for a monster RG, a interior pass rusher, DE, or one of the talented WR's that fall in the 3rd. I'm fine with settling on who lands were when our picks come up in the third round.
  14. 2020 NFL Draft

    Solid. Good pick. 3 down back.
  15. 2020 NFL Draft

    I like alot of guys here! Taylor, Dobbins, Swift Windfield, Mckinney Trevor Diggs Josh Jones
  16. Round 1, Pick 3: Jeff Okudah

    Alright and I told you why I thought he might look better, have inflated numbers etc, playing on a stacked team, competition, etc and you choose to ignore it, like I'm ignoring your reasoning I guess. I don't remember him making a tons of plays the year prior but hey maybe he was really good. I just remember him this year being more of a standout and well like among the scouting community. We'll just have to see if he's better than or even close to as good as those players he's being compared with. I don't think he is.
  17. Round 1, Pick 3: Jeff Okudah

    Clowney*mentioned*/Griffin/Golden still available in free agency.
  18. Round 1, Pick 3: Jeff Okudah

    K well now your going off numbers vs watching who his competition is, who he plays with and the league he's in. All factors... I'm sure if your a good players on a great defensive team your going to look pretty great. On top of it all now your blowing out of proportion the I don't think he's worth the 3rd pick and making it seem like I'm calling him a bad player. I think he'll start and be pretty good. Idk if he's worth the 3rd pick. I really don't know if he'd been the pick if Slay wasn't moved. I don't think he'll be Patrick Peterson which is who he's compared. I'm more fine with this pick than Derrick Brown. Lol. But to be honest man, I'm just in wait mode with these guys to be fired. I'm waiting for the next rounds of firing/hiring to reignite the fan boy in me. Which I am 80-90% sure that it's coming this season at some point. Lions got a raw deal on the scheduling, lol.
  19. 2020 NFL Draft

    Slays contract extension talks were before the Diggs trade. Moron SO if that's what he's referencing then Slay still should of been paid before that. An doesn't really give credibility to why he wasn't paid. I really don't care to do this anymore. I think you're really unintelligent person and reasoning ways to like the Lions so you can somehow enjoy what you see. Kudos to you.
  20. 2020 NFL Draft

    I think he did try to move in the 2019 offseaosn or get paid... It's the conversations they have that we don't get to hear.
  21. 2020 NFL Draft

    God dang it man... Just whatever. You'll say what you need to, to rationalize what you believe in. I get it. Just avoid voting, please, it's your right, just do the rest of us a favor an avoid it. Common, he praised a guy in practice...
  22. 2020 NFL Draft

    Reisman? The source from LA has the inside scoop on the Lions draft room?
  23. 2020 NFL Draft

    Real stretch now calling him Antonio Brown. Especailly cause he played years after the altercation. Grasp your straws.
  24. 2020 NFL Draft

    Lol, for who? The guy calming his coaching style or the pro bowl CB?
  25. 2020 NFL Draft

    https://www.freep.com/story/sports/nfl/lions/2020/03/19/detroit-lions-darius-slay-matt-patricia/2881160001/ Here's some fact but most of you are like horse you bring to water that won't drink. You'll twist it on Slay instead of a 1st time HC who hasn't done squat disrespecting a proven player.
