I wouldnt touch Gross Rexman with somebody else's 10 foot pole, never mind my own. Suckasaurus Rex is awful,
AMEN -- Rex Grossman isn't going to be the answer to anything for the Lions. as smitty said -- i wouldn't touch that guy with someone else's 10 foot pole.LOL, yup I figured that would not be too popular, but we would need to take a chance on him as he has been known to put up several
If the Lions were serious about winning -- they would draft a backup QB with dread locksThey should do this too (with or without dreadlocks). Kellan Moore sucks.
Old Lion, I say and think some crazy shit******** from time to time. But Sexy Rexy? Why? In ten NFL he's managed to throw more TD's than picks, TWICE!!! And once was 2TDs to 1 pick in his rookie season. Plus he didn't even play last year. Unless Gross Rexman is some stud from the CFL or something I'm befuddled by your choice of backup options. But atleast I have a reason to say Suckasaurus Rex twice in the same day.Like I said, we cant afford to spend money on this position and need a gunslinger to have a chance if we lose staff during the season. Not like Rex would be a long term starter, but if Staff goes out at the end of the season, Rex can be streaky good in the short term. Long term he will eventually implode, but no other FA QB that we could afford gives us any chance. Just need someone who can get Megatron the ball deep. Why waste money on another FA who might be a better prospect but gives us no chance to win. The Matt Moores and John Becks are not going to help us even if they are more steady. We need offense. Our defense will not hold up.
A CB under 28 with upside I see as being to expensive and force the Lions to address the position through the draft.I was just working up a list of young, 6'0" + CBs who are set to hit the market.
Antoine Cason is going to be a Lion this offseason, I'm calling it now. Mayhew was interested in trading for him a few years ago (around the time of the Cromartie talks), and he's 6'1", ran a 4.3 at the combine, and will only be 27 next season. He's been reasonably productive (better than any of our CBs) for the last 3 years as a full-time starter, and I don't think he'll be in that wave of elite free agent CBs.I think this makes a lot of sense. As much as we like to dream about the top guys on the list, We just dont have the money. I think this guy would fit the the profile of what we would need.
Just pick a effing side of the ball and fix it...I want defense, but I know upgrading the Oline to protect Stafford is a bigger issue IMO. DE's through FA will cost an arm and leg if we don't, but the development process wont come overnight for either side of the ball. Then the nightmares start with Backus retiring somewhere in his 40's because he was William Clay Ford draft pick.
