      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Their pre-season dominance is continuing. Best team in the league until it counts.

 

If anyone follows Tank McNamara, this week's strip is about the Lions.

Lions slowly building depth across the board

 

 

Look at the variety of moves they have made this offseason:

 

Swapped CBs Leigh Bodden and Travis Fisher for Anthony Henry, Phillip Buchanon and Eric King. That's an improvement.

Exchanged Dan Campbell and Michael Gaines for Brandon Pettigrew, Will Heller and Dan Gronkowski. Upgrade.

Special teams should be better with the additions of the return guys we mentioned, professional coverage guys such as Cody Spencer, King and Terrelle Smith.

There's more depth on the offensive line with Jon Jansen, Daniel Loper, Toniu Fonoti, Dylan Gandy, Kirk Barton and Lydon Murtha. None are great, but again, they add depth and competition.

Made a big improvement by ditching Mike Furrey and signing Bryant Johnson and Curry, drafting Williams and trading for Northcutt.

Of course, at quarterback, you now have Matthew Stafford competing for a starting spot. The Lions played five different quarterbacks in 2008. They hope that number is two this season: Stafford and Daunte Culpepper.

And without question, the position they improved the most was at linebacker, also easily the worst position on the field in '08. Larry Foote, Julian Peterson, DeAndre Levy and Cody Spencer could make up four of their top five linebackers along with Ernie Sims. Huge improvement over last year's lot.

Unfortunately 3-16 is an improvement from 0-16

 

 

They playing 19 games this season?

Here comes Rummy believing all the hype again. I hope someday he is right but ignorance is bliss.

 

 

All those names, and he forgot Owen.

 

 

Dan Owens isnt' on the team any more.... :P

whats yall's impression of Stafford? I thought he looked pretty good. The arm is impressive on the long ropes he throws.

 

He has a great arm, his reads and decision making need to improve. No question he is the future, but I think Culpepper is the present. Let Stafford sit for at least several games, hopefully the entire year.

The better his potential, the longer he should be benched.

 

There is no way these bums will be competitive this year, so why risk having what you hope is your future franchise quarterback get killed because there is nothing in front of him to stop real live NFL defensive linemen. Use your 2010 top 5 draft pick to build an O-Line first.

I'd ride Culpepper until he breaks.... which is less than a full season.

 

As for competitive, I bet you said the same about Miami and Atlanta last year... and predicted New England and Dallas in the superbowl.

Stafford is fucked.

The curse of the promising Lions QB continues.

Two or three games behind the Possums O line and he'll be so shell shocked he'll be calling plays in the huddle from the fetal position.

Oline is actually looking like an Oline... they're even running screen plays.

Last year's O-Line gave up 52 sacks (second most) in 913 plays from scrimmage (dead last). The French army of pass blocking.

 

According to the Lions depth chart, 4 of the 5 interior guys from last year are back. The new guy is a fifth year player with exactly zero starts in his first four seasons.

 

Do not start the kid.

"Allen Park --The remnants of Matt Millen's draft classes continue to dwindle on the Lions' roster.

 

The team released cornerback Keith Smith on Wednesday, leaving linebacker Ernie Sims as the only one of the Lions' 39 draft picks from 2002 to 2006 still on the roster.

 

Smith, a third-round pick in 2004 who'd spent most of his time in Detroit as a backup, missed time with injury in training camp this summer. But with coach Jim Schwartz emphasizing more physical play at the cornerback position, he wasn't a good fit anymore. "You could still see skills, but it just wasn't consistent," Schwartz said Wednesday, explaining the move. "He was kind of behind the 8-ball coming back from an earlier injury, and we had a situation in this last game where we wanted to look at some different guys in that same role. And we thought it would be best to move on from that standpoint.""

 

http://www.detnews.com/article/20090902/SP...llen-draft-pick

 

One draft pick of 39 still on the roster, that is just pathetic, especially given where they drafted at those years.

Stanton was drafted in 2007, this was 2002 - 2006. They also still have Backus and Raiola, both were drafted in 2001.

Last year they took guys who had never been in a zone blocking scheme and put them in a zone blocking scheme. These guys are all more suited for the techniques that Scwartz runs.

 

Still not expecting a lot from the team. but I think the Oline will look much better.

maybe if AP gets run over by a train on the way to the game. otherwise, reverse that.

 

ps,

its absolute bullshit that stafford is starting. daunte clearly gives us the better chance to win now.

There's always hope.

I have my finger on the buy button for my Owen 32 Lions jersey

 

The Lions are masters at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. There is no measure of futility that is not possible. Owen 32 (33) is a stretch, but it can be done.

It's pretty sad when you look at the box score.... Same total yds, better TOP, Better Rushing yds, better 3rd down conversion.... less points.

 

Holding AP to less than 100yds? not many teams can do that... of course, not many teams can lose 19 in a row either.

All good things must come to an end.

Good on the players for getting the W but this organization will be garbage as long as WCF owns it.

Anyone catch the celebration in the owner’s box at the end of the game? Almost as pathetic as when Little Ford and Millen were slobbering on each other two seasons ago.

congrats Lions. I was happy to see Stafford not throw any interceptions, really hope he turns into a good pro.

 

Watching the Lions owners, players, fans etc celebrate was funny as hell. It was like they won the superbowl. Reminds me of a basketball game I played in 8th grade. We were losing 65-20 with 3 seconds left and my buddy Dave chucked the ball from half court and it was nothing but net. We celebrated like we won the game and the other team looked dejected. Classic.

DETROIT—Euphoria gave way to deep, unwavering depression Sunday when fans celebrating the Detroit Lions' first win in two years realized the utter insignificance of the accomplishment, and how pathetic their unadulterated joy must have looked to the rest of the country. "I actually jumped into the arms of a complete stranger because we won against a team that finished in last place last year," Lions fan Joe Kula said of the team's 19-14 victory over the Redskins. "Celebrating a week-three victory like we just won a Super Bowl is not only unwarranted, it is preposterous and humiliating. We're a terrible football team. Oh, my God, we're so terrible." A postgame effort by the Lions to build a victory stage at the 50-yard line to honor the achievement was abandoned mid-construction.

New players on the roster from last year?.

 

 

Levy to start

 

 

Finally some Draft picks that are contributing.

 

Follett signed to active roster had this to say....

"Just from watching, I didn't see the passion," Follett said Wednesday. "I didn't see guys running down there full speed and, like, really wanting it. I feel kind of like a pit bull that's been caged-up that's been watching every week and just been waiting for my chance. So I think I finally get it this week, so I'm going to run down there and try to change the mentality of special teams."

True. I bet they'll be looking to trade down regardless of where they wind up in the top 3. Way too many holes to fill, especially when you draft tight ends and receivers instead of D Line and secondary, and then claim any warm body off the waiver wire.

extremely deep draft in 2010, so yes trading down for 2 second round picks may be the way to go. the 2nd or 3rd pick may be easier to trade than #1. but dont forget, its possibly an un-capped year, so this may lead teams (like the 'skins or cowgirls) to spend more $...

 

pedigrew looks decent. if he keeps improving and goes the way of say an antonio gates, it will be a big pick, especially if he gets better at blocking. its like having another O-lineman if he can block decently. its not a bad pick barley!

 

random question:

lions have 2 starting wr's with last name "johnson". so why doesnt it say C. Johnson on the back of calvin's jersey... usually they add the middle initial when theres another dude w/ same name? i guess since bryant sucks and he wont be back next season hopefully, they figured not to bother?

The problem is, no one wants the #1 pick. Too much guaranteed money. Unless there is an absolute can't miss guy out there, no one will deal with the team with #1. Look at how many trades there are involving picks 1-5, not many. No one wants them.

The Lydowns reach yet another pinnacle of embarrassment and abject futility in their 19th straight road loss to Baltimore, 48-3. The Ravens set franchise marks for yards, rushing TDs and tie their franchise record for points. Only the Lions could make a 6-6 team look like the Saints or Colts. Sad.
