One thing for sure no way Lions draft a OT at 5 weird that you guys have when we have so many glaring problems on Defense and didn't fix the defense with the trades you made none of them players make me happy as a defensive cord yuck!

I think the Lions will go Corner or Defensive End period at 5 no way they draft a Offensive tackle just won't happen this pick.

But o well congrats on a OT I personally hope your wrong! Wink

Have you forgot about BPA? Have you forgot that's the Lions draft philosophy (or something of that nature)?

Personally, I had Ansah higher, but him being a DE and us needing a DE wasn't a factor. Joeckel certainly isn't a "bad" pick either.

Well. You are wrong. As per usual.

Why are they moving Reiff to OG and not even trying to re-sign Cherilus?

I would say right now there is better than a 50% shot the real Lions go Oline. And clearly you have not looked at all the players we got or are talking out your rear again because you just dont know who they are.

Offense is key to this team and OL needs help.

You don't reach on need get over it

I agree 100% good job staff and thank god he isn't our GM...

My opinion-

1.) Luke Joeckle = A+ (He was supposed to go 1, we get the best player at 5, thats a great pick)

2.) Margus Hunt = C (I would have preferred a few other players, but he has the raw talents to succeed at the next level, his age worries me as well.)

Apparently Oakland is offering "much more" than a 6th at the moment, so I'd say he is probably going to be too expensive for the modest upgrade he'd bring.


It sounds like someone is trying pretty hard to get us to overpay for him then. If Oakland is offering "much more" then they can have him.

Both times I was involved in trade talks this offseason I was told a division rival was offering more. Both times I said "good, I like watching division rivals overpay and weaken themselves". Both times the following response was "But, but, but...."

It is one of the oldest, dirtiest, and most useless tactics in the books.


Yep. I've been around since the first FFMD and I've heard it all. This isn't our first rodeo.

something to look at i think would be trading our late round picks for proven veterans at either OLD or DE
Getting more DE's would be nice. I think we should try to get a OG too (Moffit for our 5th would be great).

Should we sign the punter we signed in real life?


id go cheap vet for the punter. moffit for a fifth would be a go if seattle wants it. Maybe we should consider Fox at RG


I'd say Reiff at RG and fox at RT might be the better option.

Moffitt was traded to someone else for less of a deal than we offered for the 2nd round swap, etc

We're due up in about 20 picks or so.

Why yes, yes it was.

Could you imagine stumbling on this thread on accident from some random google search? Laughing
