I hope they play TJ more to close out the season... he looks great at times. I want to see what we have there.

McDonald is the man... just a shifty little bastard. Lock him up.

It's rumored that KJones wants out. If that's the case, we should trade him before he's an UFA. I love him, but we need something in return.

Oh, and Peterman is an outstanding player. Lock him up.

I hope we feed KJ the ball 20 times a game to give him a reason to consider saying in Detroit.

I think Kevin Jones just wants to get as far away from Mike Martz as possible. We'll extend him next year, assuming Martz is gone after this year.

I hope Martz leaves. I respect him as a coach, but I don't want him here anymore. Too many poor decisions to keep him around, IMO.

I want an offense built around KJ, TJ and the running game... with CJ, McD and Furrey on the outside. An offense that, if the QB has to pass, encourages him to do so quickly. Kitna has gotten murdered over the last two years, and part of that is the offense.

Keep KJ. Bye bye Martz.

Who the hell is gonna be our offensive coordinator if Martz is gone?

Kippy Brown?

What kind of offense are we going to have? Would Shaun McDonald be effective in a normal offense?

I think Kitna would be pretty good at an option attack offense.

Anyone?

There are always coaches available... and I'd rather have a coach that realizes how important running the football is (and how valuable KJones can be).

SMD (usually) catches consistently, is fast and is great with the ball after the catch... he'll thrive in most offenses.

How about a freshly fired Brian Billick? Maybe give Russ Grimm a shot.

Yep. We'll have options for O Coord... but I just want a coach that will give KJ consistent carries.

i know brian billick was once a great cordinator but im not sure id liek him now. If the ravens had a good offense the past few years theyd have won atleast one su[erbowl with the defense they have but the offense there was just terrible

russ grimm would be interesting

I'm hoping we can build an offense that can get a lead and defend it. The Lions are known for grabbing defeat from the jaws of victory time and time again. They can't take time off the clock, they can't play defense. You do both by running the ball. Randy Moss and Tom Brady aren't good enough to score when they are sitting on the sideline.
