Well, I'd love to look at the Lions' laundry. Yes -- the Wash game was supposedly hard fought, but still fraught with many of the same mistakes. Jerome Felton was possibly injured - but I can't find anything.
In other words, I didn't get to see it.
I will hopefully be getting a copy at some point (I'm emailing with someone who DVR'd it and may be able to burn me a copy and mail it) but for now, no more Wash for me.
In other words, the Lions are making like it's 1999 and looking at Daunte Culpepper. Pre-Injury Culpepper would be a good fit for this offense and offensive line. Daunte Cement-Shoes of the past 3-4 seasons? Not so much. His play had dropped off quite a bit even before his injury a few years back.
I also wonder why? They have two young QB's to evaluate, and they are in process of looking at one -- and maybe for 4 games at the end of the season will look at the other. Why throw money and time into someone else? Granted, the offense is so simple I'm sure most QB's could come in and learn it in short order - still, that being the case I don't know why they would be in a hurry to sign him. If an injury happens, I'm pretty sure he or someone equivalent will be there to play number two to whichever young QB you are looking at.
I love this quote: "The Lions are dead last in every power ranking, yet last time I checked, isn't 0-7 better than 0-8?"
Wouldn't it be the Irony of the Lions to go 0-16, and then still get the second pick of the draft?
Personally, I want to see them win a few. The top few picks are virtually untradeable, and the Lions need to have the option to trade back and stockpile more picks. They have a lot of holes, and will need the selections early and often.
Interesting read by Drew Sharp who seems to have found his journalistic skills since Millen was let go. He talks about - and rightly so, in my opinion, the objective reasons Stanton should be starting games come the home game against Jax in two weeks.
Langston Moore was also let go according to the Freep as the Lions signed a FB to fill in while Felton is injured, apparently with a high ankle sprain. Does this mean there will be a Landon Cohen sighting?
Also, does anyone have any sources as to the nature/severity of the injury to Jordan Dizon? Paris Lenon was playing pretty well since Minn (again, haven't seen Wash game yet) but I was hoping to see what the Lions have in him, at least on a rotational basis, so as to know better for what draft needs are next year.
