  1. Who can we trade this year?

    Max Domi is about 10 years under Kenny's age limit at 22 years of age. I would take out a flyer on Domi to see if a change of scenery would rehab his career at 22, but Kenny likely would not. Plus, if we follow Kenny's playbook on players like Nyquist and Tatar, Domi would be sent down to Grand Rapids and only brought up once he turns 23 or 24.
  2. Who can we trade this year?

    Something they should have started 2-3 years ago. Kenny needs to trade both goaltenders plus Green, Tatar and Nyquist to see what value he can get for them.
  3. Detroit Lions 2018 Free Agency

    No faith in Kerry Hyder?
  4. Detroit Lions 2018 Free Agency

    At least if Dez Bryant was brought in we wouldn't have to worry about our offense getting unsportsmanlike penalties. Dez Bryant is one of the chosen few allowed to run on the field of play, without a helmet on, scream at an official, and not get a flag thrown. So that's good news.

  6. 2018 NFL Draft Thread

    I'm torn between him, Jones and Michel. While I'd be ok with the Lions picking anyone of the three, Jones is the one I probably have the most hesitation over. I've both seen comparisons of him to Jamaal Charles and scouting reports that worry about him being big and durable enough to be an every down back in the NFL.

    Out of the non-Saquon Barkley crop of running backs, that the Lions have a reasonable shot at getting, who do you like best? Bo Scarbrough/Alabama Derrius Guice/LSU Kerryon Johnson/Auburn Nick Chubb/Georgia Rashaad Penny/San Diego St Ronald Jones/USC Royce Freeman/Oregon Sony Michel/Georgia
  8. BECAUSE Not Caldwell, So Then Who?

    They matched up the length of Quinn's contract to Patricia's. It is sink or swim time now for Bob Quinn.
  9. Detroit Lions 2018 Free Agency

    Prince is a good corner but fails to stay healthy. I'd love to get Fuller but I am thinking he is one of the two that the Bears resign.
  10. BECAUSE Not Caldwell, So Then Who?

    Wojo is reporting now that Patrica later clarified that JBC is the OC.
  11. BECAUSE Not Caldwell, So Then Who?

    I found that intriguing too. I've never been enthralled with JBC, so if Patrica makes the decision to bring in his own OC, that's fine by me.
  12. BECAUSE Not Caldwell, So Then Who?

    Interesting note about Pasqualoni, when he was the DC in both Dallas and Miami they ran 3-4 defenses. Will we see the 3-4 in Detroit?

  14. Detroit Lions 2018 Free Agency

    Poe or Sheldon Richardson were my top two targets at the DT postion. Da'Quan Jones from the Titans is another one I would consider at DT. We need a monster run stuffer and any one of Richardson, Poe or Jones would provide that for us. Nigel Bradham, if the Eagles don't resign him, would be my top target overall on defense at the OLB spot. We need linebackers who can cover, tackle, play three downs and not suck. I expect him to be resigned by Philly, but I would be pretty aggressive going after him were I Bob Quinn. Without knowing what type of deal Ziggy Ansash will command it is hard for me to say “let the guy walk” at this point in time. With that said, if he does leave, I am all for drafting his replacement and bringing in one of Kony Ealy or Dion Jordan as nice supplemental pass rushers at DE. I'm torn on going after Malcom Butler and have no idea whether or not Matt Patricia would want to bring him in. Assuming Patrica does want Butler he will likely come at a high price. I think the Lions could use another starting corner opposite Slay, but an improved front 7 would go a long way in helping our secondary play out. If the Lions are looking for an impact corner I would expect EJ Gaines from Buffalo to get a look too. I'm leaning towards making a depth signing at corner or picking someone up in rounds 4-7 and making splash singing elsewhere. On offense I wouldn't mind Quinn making a run at Jeremy Hill. Hill, while having a down season last year, has been a capable back in the past and could give us a short yardage, north-south running back. I don't expect (nor do we need) him to be a 1,000 yard rusher anymore. I'd be bringing him in for short yardage and goal-line situations. We have $44,744,205 in cap space according to Over The Cap so we can afford to be big, but smart spenders. I think free agent signings of . . . RB: Jeremy Hill DT: Dontari Poe or Sheldon Richardson DE: Dion Jordan or Kony Ealy OLB: Nigel Bradham . . . would make for a heckuva free agent season.

    The DOW opens up down 135 points and is continuing to drop. Thank god we're winning though. So, so, so much winning going on.
