  1. Our D-Line Is Terrible--If You Had to Make A Trade...

    I could see trying to get Trevon Coley from the Browns also. Heck, I would be open to promoting John Atkins from the Practice Squad roster. At least he has some serious seize and could be a decent space eater to help free up our LBs.
  2. Teez Tabor--Is His Long-Term Future at Safety

    I hope I am wrong but his first extended stint at CB went pretty badly. Moving to S is definitely an option as far as I am concerned.
  3. Our D-line is horrible even with Ziggy Ansah. If you had to make a realistic trade who would you go after? A couple of rumors have been going around about Malcom Brown from the Patriots but that is too obvious. My ideal candidate: Michael Brockers from the Rams. They just paid Aaron Donald a ton of money. Even if they let Suh walk after this season, they can't tie up that much money on two DTs. Thoughts?
  4. I have watched Teez Tabor since last year and I am convinced that his lack of foot speed makes him a better candidate for Safety than Cornerback. I think his progression will be similar to Glover Quin who also started at Cornerback. Thoughts?
  5. Training Camp and Preseason

    I read that Miles Killebrew is working with the linebackers full-time now. That makes a lot of sense. He was already pretty good in the box. He has good size and pretty good speed for his size. It would be awesome if he found a productive role as a linebacker.
  6. CARLOS MONARREZ of the Free Press out to get Patrica

    I think the Carlos Monarrez has got used to watching Lions teams that are just not tough enough to win consistently let alone make a deep playoff run. I think he is setting the tone early that this team is going to be mentally and physically tough. The Lions have struggled with this for a while. Especially the mental part. I know this is the slowest part of the sports calendar but this looks like manufacturing a story where there isn't one.
  7. Offseason trades and signings

    I read that we released Tion Green. He flashed when he was given a chance. I am kind of disappointed. I would rather that they released Dwayne Washington.
  8. Draft Day 3

    I have been man-crushing on Fatukasi since February. He could be a day-three steal. Personally, I think the Lions could be be willing to trade a one of their current players to get back into the fourth round to get Fatukasi or Duke Ejiofor. That would have to happen before the draft starts though. Conspiracy theory: Bob Quinn trades Jake Ruddock and drafts another young QB to mold. It might take more than Ruddock to get an early 4th rd pick Flipping Ruddock for a DT or DE that we really need could work out well for us.
  9. Tre Boston--Should We Pursue Him?

    Maybe Killibrew may turn out to be like Thomas Davis who started as a safety but settled in and excelled as a linebacker. He is a good tackler. He has the size and speed to cover TE's so it might be a good fit
  10. Tre Boston--Should We Pursue Him?

    I read this article about Tre Boston: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/03/30/tre-boston-learning-theres-no-safety-in-being-a-free-agent/ He is a young player with talent who has put up pretty good numbers. Should we go after him? If we signed him I think that would mean Miles Killibrew was no longer in our long-term plans. Thoughts?
  11. Post Free Agency Mock-No Trades

    I am starting to believe that the Lions would be better off with multiple picks in the second and third rounds rather than drafting at 20 but I can't think of a realistic scenario where that happens. Here is my latest stab at a mock draft: Rd 1--Harold Landry DE/OLB: This draft doesn't have a lot of good edge rushers. He can play with is hand down or standing up. Rd 2--Royce Freeman RB: A big back with deceptive speed. Rd 3--BJ Hill DT: We signed Sylvester WIlliams and Ricky-Jean Francois to improve our DT roation. Should add some nastiness to our D-line Rd 4--Troy Fumagalli TE: We need a realistic option for our #3 TE Rd 5--Van Smith FS: Glover Quinn can't play forever Rd 7--Josh Adams RB:/WR I am projecting him to be a WR in the NFL. He is 6'2, 215 lbs, ran a sub 4.5 forty and a 6.75 3-cone drill at his pro day. He drops to round 7 because he may need foot surgery. Thoughts?
  12. Joe Dahl played pretty well down the stretch last year at LG. We didn't bring in any serious competition via free agency. Graham Glasgow seems to be penciled in as our starting C. Do you think they consider Joe Dahl our starting LG? Are they considering using a first or second round pick for Will Hernandez, Isiah Wynn or Braden Smith? Personally, I think they are going to give Joe Dahl a shot at the starting job and add a 4th or 5th rounder to develop. Thoughts?
  13. Lions sign Ricky Jean Francois

    Holy cow! Everyone is so angry right now. I already commented on this signing. Decent depth. That about all we can expect. As far as Ebron vs Fells goes, for the first half of the year, Fells did his job as a blocker pretty well. Ebron couldn't catch a cold. So, in a sense, Fells was our best TE for the first half of the year. Jarrad Davis had some ups and downs at MLB. That is why he was a two-down LB for a while and Teez Tabor was blitzing.
  14. Lions sign free agent DT Sylvester Williams:

    If the Lions have signed Sylvester Williams, I think they are committed to getting their next DT through the draft. That makes sense because this draft has a bunch or really good DT. If they don't take one in round one, I am hoping Harrison Phillips is still available or we take BJ Jones.
  15. Lions sign Ricky Jean Francois

    Bob Quinn stated up-front that he was not looking to spend big in free agency. Teams that are good for a lot of years are teams that build through the draft. Mayhew left a lot of holes for Quinn to fill. Considering how much our talent has improved in the last two drafts I think Quinn has earned some trust on how to build the Lions.
