    or, maybe the Lions just suck

    :icon_shrug:

    :lol:


    all you really need to do is look at the Lions depth to see why the second half was woeful. Injuries to key starters on defense and a beat up Kitna contributed more to their collapse than the schedule maker.

    Their lack of depth is a testament to the crappy front office decision maker known as Matt Millan.

    :tdown:

    The Barry Sanders era was cool but sine then... it's been bad.

    The Lions have a lot of nice pieces but lack a backbone. They are weak up the middle on both sides of the ball. They've got lots of weapons on offense and a QB who can get the ball to those guys and they've got some nice players on defense like Ernie Sims and Leigh Bodden but they just have too many weak spots which are capable of being exploited. I blasted the Drew Stanton pick and that was really a waste when they could have drafted Eric Wright or David Harris or even Dan Bazuin who barring another injury should be a very good NFL player. Until they draft better they are going nowhere. If their offense is able to play as well or better than last year which should be difficult given the upgrades on defense by the teams in their division, they should be able to repeat 7-9. If not, they are a 5-11 or 6-10 team.

    I don't know. That organization seems to have problems.
    During the Barry Sanders era... supposedly Wane Fonts was the problem. So in comes Bobby Ross that was suppose to be the answer (especially with all that talent.) He ends up quitting before the season was over.

    Drew Stanton is just the latest in a long line of F***ed up picks my the Lions. They will continue to suck in mediocrity until they get rid of Millan

    Jordon Dizon and Kevin Smith were actually good picks but the Cherilus pick will come back to haunt them on gameday when he commits a stupid penalty or lets a defender blow by him. Millen's rationale was that they drafted Cherilus because he is a great run blocker which I agree he should be a good run blocker in the NFL, and that they wanted to establish a power running game.. and they later drafted Kevin Smith to do that. But the problem is that they have all these weapons at wide receiver... so power running game is great and all but they have so much cash committed to their WRs and have been very successful throwing the ball... and they draft Cherilus who is a poor pass protector.

    Dizon a lot of people blasted but the guy is very instinctive and fearless and should become a good player if he gets some protection on the defensive line somehow. Until he gets that protection he will be dogcrap in the NFL. He's got outstanding feet and change of direction ability. Typically with 140+ tackle white boy college linebackers you need them to show they have athleticism and fluidity on the field and Dizon has demonstrated adequate athleticism to be a productive player given the rest of his abilities. The problem is that they want to move him inside so he is a bit of a project and they are asking him to bulk up.... will he be able to handle the bulk? Worst case scenario he will make it somewhere in the NFL as a WLB if he does not pan out at MLB and is stuck behind Ernie Sims. I think he is the type of player Rod Marinelli will love and a perfect fit for their defensive scheme and he will automatically get playing time but anyway. I think the lions did a fair job in the middle rounds this year but blew it with Cherilus.

    Personally I would have drafted Trevor Laws instead of Dizon but that is just me but the pick isn't as outrageous as it seems and I approve it :yes:
