I'm Speechless...

I expected a shootout... I nearly heard a shut-out

I expected a change... more of the same?

I spent two days away, and wish I had stayed. What can I say? What is there to say?

Say it ain't so - say that they'll go. But the answer seems no. Oh no. Oh no.

I'm out to enjoy the snow - before my little ones grow and go.

Enjoy time with family and ones you love.

I'm sure come tonight, I'll have more on above...

well
THE SAME CROWN COMES BACK
next year, now watch them take all offensive guys day one
1. qb 1a. receiver 2. offensivelineman
they will take a undersized defensive player no one wants on day 2, followed by more little fast guys who get ran over in the nfl-more of the same!! when will they realize fans are fed up now-and wont attend the garbage team there putting out there??

The game was a nightmare to watch. N.O. scored touchdowns on their first 6 (or was it 7?) drives of the game. Not sure how anyone thought the team with the most points scored this year could possibly lose to the team that's given up the most points this year. I called 45-21 for a final, because I really thought that the Detroit offense could at least score a few times; even though I knew N.O. would drop at least 40 on the Lions.

If you can't stop anyone; it doesn't matter what your offense does. I won't immediately throw the towel in on the Lions if they stick with Mayhew as GM, but I WILL drop them if they keep Marinelli as the coach, or if they don't draft a whole lot of defense this ifseason; because without building up this D; it's going to be another year of 0-16.

I'm still holding out; hoping for a Lions win in Green Bay this Sunday. I have to call 38-13 Green Bay though; because desire and reality are two ships in the night that rarely meet.

more news. Even the sports writers at Yahoo are jumping on the "ford is an idiot" bandwagon. Dan Wetzel is suggesting that RG actually FORCE Ford to either step down or take the process seriously.

Hi All,

One question what draft picks do the Lions have for the draft? 2 First, 1 2ND 2 3rds but what about 4th and down?

Keeping Mayhew may not be a bad idea a GM in the league say he was a briglant young mind and will be a very good GM not sure who said it I think the GM from the Colts or Patroits though.

Here is the story I read.

Polian: Martin Mayhew one of the top young GM prospects
Posted by Justin Rogers | MLive.com September 26, 2008 02:22AM
Bill Polian, who knows a few things about constructing a winning NFL franchise, told FoxSports columnist Jason Whitlock that Martin Mayhew is one of the top up-and-coming general manager prospects.

September 25, FoxSports.com: Last week I was at the same college football game as the best general manager in professional football, Indy's Bill Polian. At halftime of the Kansas State-Louisville game, I picked Polian's brain about young GM prospects. To my great surprise he was extremely high on Mayhew, who was just promoted to assistant GM in Detroit.
Polian is convinced that Mayhew has a deep understanding of personnel and a tremendous work ethic. Mayhew was one of only four guys Polian identified as a future GM.

If you don't know, Polian built the Buffalo Bills Super Bowl teams, the Carolina Panthers team that advanced to the Super Bowl and, of course, the Indianapolis Colts squad that won it all. He knows what it takes to build a winner.

Mayhew might be worth hanging onto for a year or tw

well my fellow lions fans-look on the bright side-the lions word means nothing since millen took over-aka-the millen firing-just after ford said that wont happen-before that-jones is our rb-before that morningwig will be back next year for sure-also batch is our qb-on and on-no wonder killer looks like a idiot as the insider-they tell him one thing and within days its exactly the opposite-the latest being kelly being let go-you cant trust anything these guys say-all the more reason they should fire mayhew and leyland-no credibility at all!! If they dont-i agree might as well keep rod and crew-no one trusts the management-what potential gm would come with the liars they have in place now!! any lion that can go elsewhere should-cant trust a damn thing they say!!

I'm gonna share this with you first, before I put it on Mlive. The following are lyrics from Genesis' "Land of Confusion" altered for the Lions.

I must've dreamed a thousand dreams.
The Lions losing to a million teams.
I can hear the marching feet,
of first round picks into the street.


Now did you read the news today?
They say Mayhew's here to stay.
Fans' season tickets are all alight,
Burning into the night.


Too naked coaches.
Too few real players.
Making too many problems.
And there's not enough wins to go round.
Can't you see,
this is the team of confusion?

This is the state we live in.
The Lions: the team we're given.
Watch them and you'll start crying,
the Lions are not worth tuning in.

Oh Superman where are you now?
We drafted someone else in the first round.
The men of steel, men of power,
Are traded away by the hour.

This is not their time,
This is not the place,
So we look to the future,
But there's not many wins to go round.
Tell me why, this is a team of confusion?

This is the state we live in.
The Lions: the team we're given.
Watch them and you'll start crying,
the Lions are not worth tuning in.

by the way congrats in coming in 2nd in the free fantasy league-good playoff run detfan79-and congrats to det revoulition who led from beginning to end but at one time was a log jam from top to bottom-i took dead last-and know you have a waiting list-i still managed to win 3 games of 12 much better than the lions-dont know how your league works-with a waiting list and you throw the cellar dwellers like me out-but hopefully then youd have enough for a minor league where maybe the top 4 of the minor league coud move up and the bottom 4 who dont make the playoffs move out-also wish the site had more smack-where we can post each week guarantee your league would of been alot moe fun!!
