Yeah, we really don't have many unnecessary roughness or personal fouls or whatever they're called. Only one I can think of was Gosder vs. the Eagles, but Babin was punching/shoving Gosder's helmet first, so could have went either way. Oh and I guess the Samie Lee Hill hit on Vick
That being said, I am a big fan of Suh. The kid is a prime example of how football should be played. Too many pre madonnas in this sport today compared to the past.
I'm sure he is looking for more money than mayhew offered or more a multi year deal. I would like to sign him but not for the crazy money he was making. That would just piss houston off and jack up his asking price
Here is the latest on Routt from ESPN Insider as of 2:30pm:
UPDATE: Arizona is also off the board for former Kansas City Chief cornerback Stanford Routt.
"The Cards might have looked into the possibility, but I have been told the Cardinals do not have interest in signing Routt," Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com reported.
Now that Miami and Arizona are reportedly out of the mix, Detroit shouldn't have much of a problem signing Routt. It isn't much of a secret the Lions desperately need cornerback help.
Well, looks like just a matter of time for him to sign with us. Barring some serious injury with a CB on Sunday from another team, my guess is he signs Monday.

Hope he signs, hopefully we hit the jackpot with him. But if not, we'll be just fine rolling with what we have now (no worse I mean)
I guess THE REAL SECRET is our pass defense is currently legit half way through the season.
All that being said, I am still in favor of signing this guy for the league minimum or close to it. Low risk, high reward like blujay said.
And teams still have a 91.0 rating against us, that's near the bottom of the league (21st). And we're also giving up a 65.09% which ranks near the bottom at 26th in the league.

Perhaps the correct statement around the league would say "Detroit's secondary is playing really well, but they have yet to be tested by a strong quarterback."
one bad game will not change this, but the packers game will help get a strong feel if the secondary can hold up against solid competition through the air.
Any news on delmas guys?
