Pretty amazing and what a finish to the game. I can see where this thread is heading. Some good ole bashing by the Steelers fans. I'm a Giants fan and we didn't make it, but at least we won last year. Wasn't meant to be.

Owned? Gimme a break, far from it

Big Ben is running a run-first offense which takes pressure off of him when he deicdes to throw, has a phenomenal offensive line so he has all day to throw, and let's not forget his dual-threats Hines Ward and Santonio Holmes. Oh, and a big Tight End named Heath Miller who's incredibly hard to defend.


He doesn't have near the passing skill that Favrre had, that Peyton Manning does, that Joe Montana had, that Dan Marino had, that Jim Kelly had, the list goes on and on but you're already owned so I'll stop there :rolleyes:

Do you mean trading the number one pick for established players? Or trading for lets say two picks in the first round? I dont know who is available to be quite honest? But its tough to pass up number one unless you get established vets or two first rounders or its a bad year for the draft?
I'd say trade it for other draft picks. We need to build from the ground up.

If we were 4-12 or 2-14 or something....or if last year's disaster was just a one-time aberration, I would feel very comfortable with the Lions taking QB Mathew Stafford from Georgia with the first pick. We've only needed a QB since I was born. :slapface: But when you go 0-16, it is time to get back to the basics of football, and that means getting some honchos in the trenches. That's not going to make a lot of people in town very happy, because I honestly believe that Calvin Johnson has Larry Fitzgerald ability if we had someone who could throw. This team is along way from worrying about that though IMO. If somebody wants Stafford, and we can still get the mean 330lb. ogre from hell, we should make that trade. We have the 1st, 20th, and 33rd pick in the draft. We must make each of those picks count....and we have the "luxury" of taking the best player available at any position except wide receiver. This team is in such dire straits I would be tempted to use all three of those picks on defense.

Personally, I would like to see the Lions use one of those later picks on a Tight End. We haven't had a decent one since Charlie Sanders retired when I still in High School....a bunch of bums and cast-offs for 30 years.

Ernie Sims (who sucked this past year)

But why did he suck ? Because we traded Shawn Rogers to Cleveland, and he was the one keeping him free to make tackles. I saw Rogers get triple-teamed this year, and still batted down the pass. He's a one-man wrecking crew when he's motivated and in shape.

I dont know how good a defensive guy is available for the first pick. If there is any doubt, then you may be right, draft the best player, even if its a QB and trade him. But you must find out if there is a demand for him and if there are teams willing to pay the price. Otherwise you have wasted another pick. Defense is what Detroit needs badly. So if you can get three picks for the number one its worth it unless there is a great guy available to take at number one? The Bills have the 11th pick and my guess is they want a reciever and or pass rusher. Maybe they could make a deal with Detroit?

According to Mel Kiper, there are teams out there that will not be able to resist Stafford once he has a couple workouts and shows his stuff. Our offensive line blows ass too, so it doesn't really matter which side of the line we draft for. When you go 0-16, 4-12 shows major progress. It will take more than one good draft to solve this team's problems.

Believe it or not, after the mistakes of Charles Rogers and Mike Williams, we need another receiver. :slapface:

Actually Buffalo's defensive line is ok when Schoebel is in there. They lost him to injury early. We have Stroud and he did a good job and Kenny. We need another pass rusher but outside LB is the first thing they will address. One of ours was hurt in preseason, Crowell, and will be back. We have a solid secondary, I think one of the best. We need another reciever. Detroits biggest problem is stopping the run. Pass too, but if you cant stop the run at all, where are you going? They were pathetic on Turkey day. They make any running back look like Gale Sayers.

I called them 0-16 when they were 0-5. My friends were laughing at me....no one goes 0-16 ! I've never seen a defense even close to that bad. One of those early games I was actually sitting on the couch with my jaw down to my knees. I couldn't believe what I was watching.....yet in a twisted way I liked it and their misery drew me in. I was Lion-free for 4-5 years. I honestly couldn't take it anymore. :blink:

Ah, but therein lies the problem. He wasn't.
