Who do you want the Lions to Draft - or do you even care?
« on: May 04, 2014, 04:36:43 PM »

I am honestly having a hard time caring this year?

But who do you think they should draft, and who do you think the will draft this Thursday?

I am apathetic about the Lions this year.  I was not impressed with the selection of Jim Caldwell.   I did not think that Jim Schwartz was the answer, but Caldwell does not appear to be an upgrade.

I'm with you there.

Jim Caldwell would have been my last choice for a head coach.

That is the thing that really got me off the wagon.

I'm hoping they trade down and get an extra pick - and use them to fill up the defense weaknesses - Safeties and Corners...   

Defense wins Championships

A TE?  Really?  A TE?  That was an area of need?

Why did you resign Pettigrew? 

Everything the Lions have done this offseason I find totally ridiculous.

What a bunch of idiots.

I don't have a nickle invested, never will, so they can draft whoever they want. Who am I to second-guess the experts?

One of the worst picks ever based on the needs they had.  Nothing wrong with the player.,  The Lions don't need another TE.

What about the Secondary?

What about a LB?

Jeez.

Sammy - I don't have a dime invested this year either - and with picks like that I don't intend to.

Maybe they are going to convert him to LB...   or CB...   or some other defensive spot they NEED

Prof - I think they just plan on scoring a ton of points - so stopping someone really doesn't matter.

Like Pittsburgh last year.

Or the Ravens.

Or the Giants.

Or the........

The list is endless.

The other problem is the prolific offense never materializes for more than 3 games a year.

The local experts may be declaring the Lion's draft dumb and stupid, but not so much by the national football writers experts.
