  1. Sorry one other thought. If the Lions did trade CJ & Stanton to Jax. that would give them 3 first round picks. They could then send two first rounders to Denver for Cutler then draft someone like Crabtree in the mid-first round.
  2. I think this trade could still go down. Look Denver has a new coach and seems to be looking to bring in his own qb. The Lions have 2 picks in the first round. At any rate I like what Mayhew is trying to do.

  5. For much of the past year, the focus on Michigan football lay heavily on the program’s struggles under Rich Rodriguez. There was the departure of players, the off-field lawsuit with West Virginia and the on-field drama of a 3-9 record. But the Rodriguez we've heard about, the one with the Teflon skin and the dominant will, showed up in full force during recruiting season. There are many reasons why Michigan could have wound up with a mediocre recruiting class. Instead, Rodriguez emerged with high praise from the national experts for U-M's class — ranked seventh by Rivals.com — showing his vision translates to players. Part of the sales pitch is Michigan's reputation and Rodriguez conceded Wednesday that it opens doors. But, he said, it doesn't finish the deal. And finishing deals is where he and his staff did their best work. http://www.freep.com/article/20090205/BLOG14/90205042/1054/SPORTS06/Rodriguez+deserves+high+marks+for+recruiting+class
  6. When the U.S. Army All-American Bowl was being played in early January, University of Michigan assistant coach Tony Dews ducked into a room at home, away from his wife and kids so he could watch the game on TV. Dews said Wednesday he didn't know what Will Campbell would say when it came time to announce his college choice. Campbell, a defensive tackle from Detroit Cass Tech High School and one of the nation's top high school players, had said publicly prior to the prep all-star game in San Antonio that he had dropped Michigan from consideration. But because it was a no-contact period with recruits per NCAA rules, Campbell could not be called by Dews, his primary recruiter from Michigan. Dews said he wasn't sure if Campbell had been joking. As the game got going, Michigan offensive coordinator Calvin Magee called Dews to ask if he was on a suicide watch. Dews said even his wife Tamika was getting fidgety. Eventually - during a break in the action in the game's third quarter - Campbell picked up a Michigan hat and put it on, then broke into a dance. http://www.mlive.com/wolverines/football/index.ssf/2009/02/defensive_lineman_william_camp.html
  7. ANN ARBOR -- Tate Forcier doesn't really care how you say his last name. Tate Four-See-A. Tate Four-Sear. So which is it? "I don't care," he said, smiling. But how does he introduce himself? "I say Tate Four-See-A -- it's easier," he said, laughing. "Four-Sear, it's like, I don't know, I don't feel it." It's pretty clear, based on his good-natured confidence and an appealing cockiness, that no matter how it's pronounced, he doeswant people to know his name. Forcier is a 6-foot-1, 185-pound southern Californian and one of two quarterbacks that will be part of Michigan's freshman class this fall. He and fellow freshman Denard Robinson, will compete for playing time. But Forcier didn't have to go through the process of signing and faxing a letter of intent Wednesday, the first day of the national signing period, because he's one of seven Michigan recruits who enrolled last month. That's a significant advantage. He will go through drills and begin competing for the starting spot next month. http://www.detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20090205/SPORTS0201/902050401/1131/SPORTS0201
  8. Ok, I give. Is it President Obama? Or is it President Pelosi? Why are the Dem.'s useing scare tactics to push their way's on us? Is this really "Change you can believe in?" Where are the honest Dem's? The one's who pay their taxes, the ones who haven't been hand picked by Obama? I didn't like either Mcain or Obama. But, this has gone from a breath of fresh air to stale in the blink of an eye.

  12. As a team, everyone knows the Lions are the worst team in the NFL because they finished with an NFL-worst-ever 0-16 record. But the situation might be even more dire than that. A report on the talent in the NFC North, researched by Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, shows that the Lions come up last at a large majority of positions. This report was based solely on the NFC North, the third-worst division in the league. McGinn did a survey of executives in personnel from each of the four NFC North teams and they were not allowed to vote for their own players. The execs were to rank the other players, giving them three points for No. 1, two points for No. 2 and one point for No. 3. Starters, special teams and key backup positions were graded. On offense and defense, there were a total of 34 positions that were graded and Lions players finished in last place in 26 of those, with 17 getting the minimum of three points. On offense, 17 different positions were graded and the Lions finished in last place in 13 of those positions with nine players earning the minimum three points. Those nine include left guard (Edwin Mulitalo), center (Dominic Raiola), right guard (Stephen Peterman), tight end (Michael Gaines), quarterback (Dan Orlovsky), No. 3 receiver (Mike Furrey), No. 4 receiver (John Standeford), No. 2 tight end (John Owens) and utility offensive lineman (Damion Cook). http://www.mlive.com/lions/index.ssf/2008/12/how_bad_is_the_lions_talent_a.html
  13. Detroit Lions begin interview process today; Martin Mayhew has interest in Mike Shanahan While fired Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan was immediately linked to the New York Jets job, the Lions will explore the possibility of adding Shanahan to their list of candidates. The Lions aren't interested in signing a head coach who is demanding any authority in personnel decisions. http://www.mlive.com/lions/index.ssf/2008/12/lions_begin_interview_process.html
