Yeah, what are the chances?
The Lions do have to realize that the time is now. Make some good moves or retool. They need to make an all out effort to sign Garcia, or just cut Harrington and sign Warner, Fielder, whoever and start to rebuild their QB spot while the division is in such turmoil. Probably they'll end up Ditka-ing
around and end up with some retread QB and have to rely on Bloey.
I'm a bit lost on what that means,but I really think with the talent on offense in Detroit,the Lions have a real shot in our weak division this year.I mean behind the Bears of course,but hey,second place is like the Superbowl for the Lions,right?Boy,it's just not as fun picking on the Lions as it was picking on Tampa every year.
What that means is that the Lions have an excellant chance to take advantage of the Packers and Vikes stumbling and win the division. But they are approaching the FA season timidly. They say they want a back-up who can challenge Bloey Harrington. Why be such pansies? Why not just say we need to be better a QB and tell Garcia and the rest that the job is open, come and get it. Do you think they look at Harrington ridiculous contract, hear talk about backing him up and think that they would be given a shot to start? Go after Garcia, he is the best fit for Mariucci's awful offense. And go after him hard. But instead they are just pussy-footing around and hoping someone will sign.
They re-sign Raiola at center and are letting McDougal, tackle, go when they have a better center in Woody and there are lots of guards around. Check that, were. They have effectively screwed around enough that the best Guards are gone. ???
They are now flirting with Kennedy from Denver. A hitter who can't cover. Add this to a soft secondary that doesn't cover well. ???
I know it's easy for me to sit here and take potshots at Millen, but can you see the logic in the job he is(n't) doing? That's what I mean by the Lions Ditka-ing around. It's time for a serious move and we are led by what looks like a wishy-washy coach and a clueless GM. I pray I am wrong.
