i am most frustrated with is that we are left with another hole to fillThis is indeed frustrating.
RB's, complimentary WR's, TE's & backup QB's can easily be found in free agency.By the way, is there any wonder why the Lions are such a mess and have such horrible depth?? How many of these types of players have we drafted recently?
Hey, I have a plan. How about we STOP using precious 2nd round picks on a position that we can fill with undrafted free agents.
Unless you need a #1 WR the draft is NOT the place to look for a WR. It's just not. It's stupid to do so.Yep, only stupid GMs actually DRAFT their players. The good ones just pass on all their draft picks and just grab up the best guys that didn't get drafted. That's where the real talent lies- in the players that everyone passed on at least 7 times.
The draft should be strictly for defense & offensive line and it has nothing to do with team need. The reason is because these are the hardest positions to find anyone useful in free agency.Where do you come up with this stuff?
As long as you have a franchise QB and a #1 WR there is no reason to EVER draft any position other than defense or offensive line.I'm honestly laughing out loud at this. I've got a few beers in me tonight and you're theories on how to run a team are hilarious!

Shok couldn't possibly do any worse then Millen or Mayhew.As long as you have a franchise QB and a #1 WR there is no reason to EVER draft any position other than defense or offensive line.I'm honestly laughing out loud at this.

B.) You seem to have forgotten about LBs and DBs- if we shouldn't ever draft them, and they're not readily availale as UDFAs, then are we just going to skip those positions alltogether?It's worked for the Lions the past decade, what makes you think addressing LB and DB's with 4th 5th and 6th round picks is addressing the problem?
I can't figure out you guys who are constantly negative- what happiness do you get out of posting? "Mayhew sucks at running the team... Schwartz blows... WCF doesn't care... etc..." Why bother? Is it because we reply and you equate that to us listening to your rants?This is just your youth showing. It's ok....I applaud your optimism. I was once like you. I told my dad, This is the year. We have Barry Sanders and Scott Mitchell had a Pro Bowl year.
That's only because were much older fans then you. The decades of losing has been hard on us. It doesn't make any of us less of a fan, just more of a realist.....
All-in-all I don't much care, but I can't immagine following a team I disliked so much. What's the point for you guys?
I root for Detroit to rape the Seattle scouting department is what I do. They apparently figured it out. We have however havn't for decades......Seattle has been to a SB. They have a quality team on the rise with youth and they have only been in the league since the late 70s......Why can't Detroit do this?Take Seattle for example. They just impolde on the seen with talented starters all across the board in the past 3 years which where drafted in the 3rd round or beyond starting with Russell Wilson.....It's the coaching, scouting and scheme the Lions lack......Then go root for seattle. Damn dude.
it is a really corny headline but we all need something to laugh about cause this is pathetic and sad.
