  1. Poll: I don't think there would have been any player at...

    I don't think there would have been any player at this pick who would have come in and started day one for us. I would have liked CB Keith McGill (I think he was still available), but I also know...

    Exactly what they need. Makes the Ebron pick feel a lot better. I am definitely happier about this draft. Glad they traded up to get him, only giving up a 4th (1 of 3) and a 7th and received a 5th...

    I wonder if they will hold out until the third for him though.

    Pettigrew's contract maybe 4 years, but it only has so much guaranteed money attached to it, so after that is paid, they can cut him without penalty, so we are not necessarily cuffed to him for 4...

    Agreed. At first, I was infuriated with the pick as I thought someone would want to trade up for Donald, Manziel, Beckham, etc. Then, the draft played out and no one traded up between our pick and...

    I'm actually warming up to the Ebron pick, mostly just because there were no trade ups into our range. In fact, I don't know who else I would have wanted. Donald would have been nice, but isn't...

    I don't know how I feel about the pick. But for that matter, I don't know if I would have liked any pick (Beckham, Ebron, Donald, Dennard, Clinton-Dix, etc.) I would have preferred a trade down...

    I'm not sad to miss out on Sammy as I think he's slightly overrated and I definitely am glad we didn't give up a first next year. However, I am a little disappointed as I was ready to bust out my...

    I love the hire of Lombardi. I wanted someone who has been exposed to a high powered offense. I am still a little nervous about having two first time coordinators, but I like what each brings to the...

    As much as I like Ebron, I can't imagine taking a TE at 10. The positional value is just not there. Especially with the depth of this year's TE class. There are 3 TE's projected to go in the first...

    I'm really curious as to who he will look at for OC. My guess is Christensen, but it appears they haven't asked permission to speak with him yet. I really wonder if they don't get Christensen that...

    I'm actually happy that the Lions made this "boring" and not the "flashy" hire. Too many times we get a coach that many of us want and we get excited about what could happen, only to be let down....

    agreed. It also has Adam Gase as the Browns coach already. That may turn out to be the case, but hardly official.

    I would say a QB who minimizes mistakes and can lead his team to a 10-6 record could be considered a solid game manager yes. I never said he was a dynamic passer. He threw for just under 3,000 the...

    I wouldn't say 2 probowl seasons under McDaniels since McDaniels was only there 1 and 1/2 years. Orton did put up nice stats there, but always was a good game manager. I also wonder who deserves...

    No offense, but nothing in Josh McDaniel's past shows he knows how to work with QB's who are flawed. He had to work with Tom Brady in New England. In Denver, he traded Cutler and brought in Orton and...

    That's my point though, none of us on the forum knows if it sucks. We know it's boring and not a flashy hire, but we won't know if it sucks until next season. Caldwell's not an exciting guy and he...

    I don't really know if I would want McCoy, Lewis or even Coughlin. McCoy has one 9-7 season under his belt, Lewis has never won a playoff game and although I would welcome Coughlin, I remember it...

    Again, if he's just an assistant and the Washburn's stay, why does it matter?

    As little as it might be, Caldwell still has 4 1/2 years more experience than Marinelli had as a coordinator or head...

    We don't know Prince's position with the team yet, so I don't see any reason to be upset about the hire. He has been an Oline coach since 93, so there is probably some reason why he keeps getting...

    So apparently we lost out on our #1 coaching target and our #1 offensive coordinator target?

    Oh well. As much as I was excited about Lazor (mostly because he might have been influenced by Kelly's...

    1. It wasn't just about 1 million. Whiz wanted to run a 3-4 and Mayhew refused to make that change. Also, the Titans are giving him more player control and Whiz has coached in Nashville before...

    I definitely can't agree with this. Schwartz had lost the team and there has been ZERO discipline the last few years. I think any change is a good change with this team. We weren't moving forward...

    Agreed. That's my point. He's not the flashy hire. He's not the shiny new toy (up and coming coordinator). But, he might be the right hire. Only time will tell. Basically, there's no reason to get...
