  1. Lions Select LB Jahlani Tavai #43 Overall

    IMO everyone in media does it from time to time. Only a few people bring it to he level of Skip Bayless.
  2. Are we really as bad as people think?

    Just spit balling some reasons people are saying that. I don't want to put to much thought into it. 1. QB with big contract coming off worst year of his career imo, now has another new coordinator and a new offense that he needs to learn. He also has some very justifiable off field distractions... 2. Maybe a stud RB? Maybe an injury prone RB? Who knows? Nothing to exciting behind him in case he does get hurt. 3. Bad offensive line last year, didn't add anything new to it this off season. Why would anyone expect it to get better? 4. Rumors of players not buying in to the new coaching regime. 5. Former NE assistants don't have a track record of success in the NFL. The coaching staff didn't impress me last season. 6. Defense was beyond inconsistent last year. 7. Holes that they had last year, still seem to be there. 8. Draft that most people consider to be one of the worst in the NFL. TE at #8 overall. 9. Marvin Jones coming off a down year. KG looks good when he's on but he vanishes at times. A injury prone former NE WR behind them and not much else. 10. Probably going to have to deal with curse of Hard Knocks. 11. 27 years since a playoff win... I'm sure others can add to this list, but I think the doubters have pretty solid footing to base their opinions on.

    Possible, but not probable.

    His current job is in the media. Someone is always willing to have a "hot take" to generate hits.
  5. If history has taught us anything it's that it's okay to discount the Lions.
  6. Let's try to get Suh back home

    My counter to that would be hopefully in 2020 we're more likely in a position to make a serious push, and 20 extra million to spend would help more. We can still make those cuts if needed, we'll just have more capital to go after bigger fish.
  7. Let's try to get Suh back home

    We're gonna need to roll some of that cap into next season. We're gonna be hurting in 2020.
  8. Lions Select TE T.J. Hockenson #8 Overall

    The Big Reach.
  9. Seahawks sign DE Ziggy Ansah (1 year, $9M)

    Pretty great when healthy. Never healthy. I was worried the Lions would re sign him.
  10. The Lions Den: The Anything Thread

    Had no idea it was a racist gesture.
  11. Lions Select TE T.J. Hockenson #8 Overall

    why'd you have to go and bring that up???
  12. Lions Select TE T.J. Hockenson #8 Overall

    I just got deja vu about the Jets and Sam Darnold last year...

    Signature checks out.

    I have a feeling we're going to get at least a glance of if that will work or not this season when Amendola gets hurt.
