  1. Most overrated player on your team?

    It might be health and age related. It might also be our former Oline coach, Ron Prince, was just bad. One of those two things was hopefully fixed this off season. Hopefully Lang (and the rest of the Oline) can get back on track.
  2. Most overrated player on your team?

    TJ Lang

  4. Most underrated player on your team

    I think Glover Quin is my nominee for the Lions.

    I am deeply offended.
  6. 2018 Expansion Draft - Lions

    First time in a long time I can't think of any Lions players that meet this criteria. Not a lot of bad contracts right now. That's a good thing.

    Let the purge continue!
  8. The Lions Den: The Anything Thread

    I don't want to come off as rude, but we pretty much disagree with each other 100%. I don't think Shead will be on the field enough to be a "run stopping machine" and even the best tackling CBs shouldn't be called that imo. If Sylv Williams was such a solid DT, he shouldn't be on his 3rd team in 3 years. I don't care if he was a 1st round pick, he hasn't lived up to his draft selection. I honestly don't know much about Kennard and Jones. They seem like fringe starters to me, which is about a wash with what we had last year. I do expect Jared Davis to improve, but without play makers in front of him we probably won't see it as much on the field. Our best defensive lineman last year was Ngata imo. There was a clear drop in play after he got hurt last year. I don't think we replaced him with anyone near as good as he was. Throw in losing who I think is a very good DC for an unknown, and I think we can do worse than last year. We also played a Packer team with a tackling dummy playing QB twice last year. I don't expect that kind of competition again.
  9. The Lions Den: The Anything Thread

    I have extremely low expectations of our defense for this upcoming year. I think our secondary is great, but our front 7 doesn't have a single stud imo. It will making stopping the run and pressuring the QB difficult. We also lost one of the best defensive coordinators in the game. It remains to bee seen how the new defensive coaching staff will do, but Austin will be missed. My expectations are competing for a wild card spot and not much else.
  10. Offseason trades and signings

    I expect them to roll out with Wilson and Roberts as their top two TEs. Use them more as blockers and possession/red zone targets than they used Ebron. I also think Roberts takes a pretty significant step forward this year.

    Man, I just wasn't sure. Then I saw the name in all caps. Now I agree.
  12. Top 10 CB

    Yes!
  13. Top 10 CB

    Give Slay, Lattimore, Hayward, or Peterson Rhodes' pass rush, and they're all better than him imo. What Slay has done without a pass rush is very impressive.
  14. Offseason trades and signings

    Training camp injuries could motivate a team to overpay.
  15. Offseason trades and signings

    I wouldn't be shocked to see Abdullah traded before opening game. Arizona would be my pick as they said they wanted him in the draft as the Lions were drafting him. A late conditional pick would work. A 7th if he's on their opening day roster, a 6th if he gets 50% of their starts or over 35% of their offensive snaps. Both teams win in those situations. If that happens : Blount, Johnson, Riddick, Bawden, Zenner.
