  1. Yes Stafford was OK, when it's all said and done, but it is hard to overstate how consequential and deflating that sack at the end of the 2nd quarter was. On 2nd and 6, deep in your territory, you have to get the ball out quickly or throw it away. Instead, he almost gave up a safety. Astonishing. Now you've been up by 11 and you go into halftime down by 3... after having given up a massive lead the week before. But we probably wouldn't be talking about it if the defense didn't give up 500 yards.
  2. You expect Patricia’s defense to fail late, but Stafford really blew it taking that sack deep at the end of the first half. It is the kind of bone-headed mistake that will turn a Hall of Fame arm talent into a QB with a losing record for his career with no playoff wins. Patricia is a disaster. Quinn is a disaster. Sweep them both out and hope for Trevor Lawrence and a new coach to turn the franchise around.
  3. Oh that’s right. The guy they should have hired is busy after beating two of the three best teams in the AFC in the playoffs with a castoff QB.
  4. Junk coach. Junk defense. Junk franchise. Is Mike Vrabel still available?
  5. I don’t understand dropping eight guys into coverage and giving up the seventh most completions in the NFL. And then trading your best CB. But they think they are replacing Slay with two comparable CBs at less than Slay’s cap hit, and bringing in Harmon and Collins to supplement coverage further. I can’t think of a position group now where they don’t have “their guys.” So now go out and win.
  6. As hard as I have been on Quinn and Patricia, it is clear that they have largely succeeded in building “their” program with a roster full of “their” guys. If they are as smart as they think they are — and they might be — this will be the year that we see it.
  7. It’s all Quintricia’s roster now. No more excuses.
  8. I agree 100%. But Quinn will blame the pick on the old coaching staff.
  9. All good points, and demonstrate that all draft pools are not created equal. In a draft pool that was as deep as the most recent pool apparently was, it is disappointing that Quinn was not able to make more of it. Though I think Cephus may be better than we expect.
  10. Then let’s grade his 2017 draft. On second thought, let’s not. It makes me sad to think about.
  11. And here is part of an epic thread on him by Alex Reno:
  12. Speaking of wild comparisons, here is Gil Brandt on Quintez Cephus:
  13. An incomplete pass on third down is a drive killer. A QB getting hit relentlessly even if he’s escaping sacks is a morale killer. That said, it looks like the team only has about $15 million in cap space after estimated rookie contracts. (If I’ve read this right: https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/detroit-lions/cap/)
  14. It is a nice draft on paper, but let’s hope he found the right OL to keep Stafford from breaking his back a third time.
