  1. Could be the whole grass is always greener syndrome but from the eye test I think Hendrickson is way better. He wins matchups a lot quicker, he gets one on one sacks were some of Okwaras seemed like “right place right time” sacks. I think Hendrickson is the type of FA you pay money too that has broken out and will continue to rise. Okwara is too up and down so far in his career and athletically go look at Hendrickson’s combine, he is way more athletic (ran a 4.65 40)!
  2. He is way better than Okwara IMO. The guy gets consistent pressure. Run grade could be scheme specific as we all know our priorities here in Detroit was run first/pressure 2nd (or never in our case). NO scheme was more aggressive so harder for PFF to grade IMO.
  3. I agree! I think they give him an extension so they don’t have to hear trade questions for 2 years. I think it is clear we’re building around Stafford.
  4. Wow! I didn’t realize Trey Hendrickson is a FA this offseason. He should be our #1 target in FA. Young, had 13.5 sacks this year, can play in the run game, and the Saints connections to Glenn and Campbell.
  5. Link? I have seen multiple sources saying it’s a done deal with lions.
  6. Scary thought with Parcells ties that both Campbell and Glenn have been on record saying BP as their mentor, is he had Todd Haley on his staff as an offensive coach (Parcells didn’t have OCs). I would not want Haley as OC here.
  7. Plus the extra 2 3rd rd picks!
  8. You could be right. Right now he is projected a 2nd rd pick but he is someone that mag rise by draft day.
  9. True but I’m on the Parsons train. The only WR I would consider taking at 7 is Chase.
  10. Yea I agree. For me it’s all about what Kenny wants and I read it’s close to $18 a year. That’s vastly overpaying IMO. It’s a pretty deep FA WR class as well.
  11. Or maybe a cheap vet like Ryan Kerrigan as a pass rush specialist
  12. Yea agreed. I forgot to use the other 3rd pick for Kenny G in this mock so maybe a DE there. But I think they give Austin Bryant and Julian Okwara DE reps opposite Flowers plus Thomas can play the big DE role as well as he has position versatility.
  13. I agree. We just need an average defense or he’ll just not the worst defense and a playmaker at WR.
  14. Some good options for OC honestly. I wouldn’t mind seeing Dirk Kortter as OC with Stafford. He likes to throw deep in his scheme. DC will be interesting. Wade Phillips, Kris Richard (seems to fallen fast), I is think it will be someone who runs an aggressive scheme going off Campbells comments about D needing to play “balls to the walls”
  15. Anyone else get the vibe that Chris Speilman is going to have a much bigger role than they put on? I think he may even have final say on draft picks. Maybe I’m reading too much into this but Barry said Chris was running the interviews. Holmes is a scout essentially, they interviewed Campbell before the second interview with Holmes. I think these hires are both Speilman’s. I don’t hate it but I’m pretty sure Campbell was not a Holmes hire and I think Speilman has a much bigger role going forward.
  16. You could be right. I have been trying to find a way to get Isabella since his draft year. Maybe wishful thinking but they never use him it seems. I wouldn’t mind keeping Kenny G if the price is right but there are a lot of good FA WRs that I think will be cheaper than Kenny G. Davis, Juju, ARob, Chris Godwin, Curtis Samuel, Will Fuller are all FAs and all won’t get the $18 mil a year Kenny G reportedly wants. I wouldn’t pay Kenny G over $12 honestly.
  17. First and foremost extend Stafford to gain cap space. Cuts: Justin Coleman Desmond Trufant Jesse James Christian Jones Danny Shelton Trades: Kenny G transition tag and traded for a 3rd rd pick. DShawn Hand traded for WR Andy Isabella. This adds speed to our WR corps and Isabella is vastly underused in ARI. FA: Cap space of about $30 mil: WR- Corey Davis- Came on strong this season. He will replace Kenny G at a lower cost. WR- Josh Reynolds- the Holmes connection and LA Rams drafted Van Jefferson to make him expendable. Good
  18. Stafford has a good 5 years left which is a long time in the NFL. We’re not in bad cap situation and if we release James, Trufant, Christian Jones, Daniels, Coleman we will have about 30 mil in cap space. That’s a lot of space to fix a defense to just average and sign a WR in FA. I would even extend Stafford honestly to get more cap space. I don’t even think we should consider drafting a QB high until after Staffords 35 yr old season (3 seasons from now)
  19. NOWAY! Stafford isn’t the problem. It takes to long to find a franchise QB as good as Stafford. Build around him and let him win in Detroit. The NFL is setup for quick turnarounds. Just get an average D and running game around Stafford and Lions are a playoff team.
  20. Yea because it’s all Staffords fault he has had a terrible running game and defense his whole career. “SuperDuper” good point!
  21. Stafford is staying bro. Haters gonna hate. I never understand the Stafford hating sewer rats in the Lions fan community.
  22. Rumor I read is that Holmes and Dan Campbell are big Stafford supporters are want to build around him. That’s partly why they got the job.
  23. That just Justin Rogers being stupid. He said “I’m glad I go to a school where men like women and women like men” Not exactly that bad for a 20 year old. Rogers is just trying to be relevant with this BS!
  24. LA Rams with McVay and Phillips.
