Is the offensive tackle coming back? The one who's supposed to have a big impact on that line..

what about shlesinger (sp?)? Is he supposed to be back this week? KJ could benefit from a lead blocker.

[edit]

THE NEWS
The Lions are hopeful that they'll have starting fullback Cory Schlesinger back in the lineup this Sunday against the Browns. Schlesinger has been inactive for their first five games of the year, recovering from a fractured right fibula.

Our View
Schlesinger's return will give the Lions' running game a boost because of his blocking prowess.

The only new offensive tackle is RT Kelly Butler. He filled in for Stockar MacDougal who went to MIA. Butler has played all yr at the RT position. He hasent quite lived up to expectations, but being that its his first playing yr (didnt see any action last yr), he should probably get better as the season progresses. The only other new addition to the starting OLine is LG Rick Demulling who hasent lived up to expectations either.

I am not so sure that KJ will rebound. Mariucci seems to have told him not to bounce anything outside, a move that is bust or boom, in favor of hitting the holes the play dictates. I think the O-line is having so much trouble right now that Mariucci has told KJ not to improvise because he doesn't think the holes will be there.

That is why, IMO, he likes to call so many up the gut, quick hitting plays. That way the O-line doesn't have to sustain their blocks. Just a thought as I try to sift through the wreckage to see if Mariucci makes any sense at all.

Problem is this is taking it's toll on KJ, as he has gotten dinged up each of the last three games. So Bryson and Pinner will have to run more to keep KJ healthier.

EDIT: For those KJ owners. Take solace in that I am usually wrong about these things. :-b

I kinda agree with moochman about KJ. The biggest reservation I have about calling him an all out buy low candidate is that Marriucci is doing everything he can to stifle this offense it seems. When the obvious best player gets benched at a time that most people would think he would be the most valuable, then we as fans arent really going to be able to figure out how he will be used in the future - does that make any sense?

The running game has obviously taken a step back from what it was last yr, and its kinda a mystery why. Its not like DET had a passing attack last yr, Sledge was injured last yr too, and the Oline seems to have gotten worse even though it was upgraded on paper.

Harrington = No numbers for KJ. Bottom line. He is the worst QB in the league and defenses have no respect for him. Period.

If he'll break out, it has to be against the Browns.

Is he worth a start over Chris Brown?

[edit: never mind, Brown should run over the Cardinals]
