Sanchez since the day we drafted has been a class act and said all the right things, the only time the media got on him, was when he read from a sheet of paper, did the GQ (before the season started), and lost games.

    we couldn’t draft a OT because we had and still do have to much invested in the OT position

    Backus had 3 years left and Cherilus had 5 years at the time

    so we wont be going there this year either.. i do think we will go G hope fully Mike Iupati.. that really are bigger problem in the last 8 years we have had 15 or 16(losing track) LG

    Stanford has been very solid. I hope he doesnt end up being a bust. Im sick and tired of seeing the Lions get their ***** whipped all the damn time

    I think Stafford will prove to be the right choice.
    All I do is hit. I even hit your mother once. Yep, hit it good.

    he was the best qb coming out of college and they rotated culpepper and stanton the prior year going 0-16...yes they made the right pick. What else could they have done? It is senseless to use hindsight in situations like this, because it is so easy to say for example that they year Tom Brady was drafted every team made the wrong pick.

    As for the Stafford V. Sanchez debate I think it is silly to begin with becasue they are rookie but how do those stats possibly tell who the better QB is?

    Stafford has 2 more td's and 3 more pics in less games.

    Sanchez has a better QB rating

    Stafford has been sacked only 2 more times for those that think his oline is so much worse than the Jets, and they are both equally as mobile.

    one was the 1st pick and went to a team with no expectations, one was the 5th pick and had higher expectations than any qb coming in the last few years.

    was it the right pick?

    Bottom line...it is too early to tell and even if you wanted to use stats they dont lean towards one player being at all better than the other

    I voted "yes" but how in the world can we guess their production in the 4-5 years in the NFL?

    You can always ask Merill Hodge?

    That ball was underthrown. You're supposed to lead the guy and hit him in the hands as his arms are outstretched. Hitting him in the head/face, means he underthrew him by a couple of feet.

    Are you serious? Mediocre receivers can adjust to the ball.

    Anyways I still think Sanchez will be a bust.

    hes an nfl Wr balls dont have to be place in his hands, there was no1 within 10 yds of him, it wasnt a hard thrown ball, so he had time, and majority of WR wouldve caught it....Its not the point, it was just an example because the guy said sanchez cries when his Wr's drop balls, when i cant think of one time hes said anything bad about his teammates.......Thats also not really the point of the thread, Stafford was projected higher so he shouldve gone first, dont get why lions fans need to bash sanchez just to make them feel better about there pick....Who will be the better Qb? Time will tell.....
