I think it's the most realistic starting line-up but at the beginning of the season, kennedy will start at ss and bullocks at FS. Later during the year alexander will start at FS to move bullocks back to SS.

Jones isn't going to play this year so you might as well not list him. I could see our offense with 4 WR's no TE's and no FB. Not every down but certainly on a lot of downs. As for the defense, I pray White is good enough to start. NFL.com list DeVries as our starter over him but that can change.

Also Addict, I'd just like to say you're the coolest guy I know

Hope you don't mind I improved your post? And thanks ;).

Seriously though... who the HELL is DeVries?

IamCanadian I totally agree, Martz will even run that 4 wide set in the red zone, hope Kitna can find the holes in a D thats looking pass, sitting on routes, and with CB playing tight at the line.

well god luck for the defense having to cover both roy and CJ outside with furrey and macdonald in the slots they won't be able to double both roy and CJ and they will have their nickel or dime guys on furrey add that with bell's speed out of the backfield who we can run outside and this offense has no reason not to succeed

Definitely an improvement!

Jared DeVries is currently listed on our depth chart at NFL.com as our starting DE over White.

On paper looks good, except QB. Stanton cant help this year and Orlovsky doesnt seem to be the answer either.

Not on every team, each team puts its depth chart as they want it. I'm not saying DeVries will be our starter but we listed him there. I think White will beat him out but you never know.

With all the money White is making as a former backup on Tampa, he will be ushered in as a starter, I wonder why DeVries is listed as a starter, DeVries has been around like 9 years or something, and has always been a special teamer or situational player? You can bet White will start, you can't pay Edwards and White that kind of money and not start them.

it'll be white for sure and most likely Edwards unless IAF beats him out

We paid more for Rogers and Williams and we didn't start them. Even if we start them, can they do the job, that's the more important question?? Tampa Bay had White for a couple of seasons and are in need of DE's yet they let him walk rather than resign him or tag him. What does that say about his potential?? He's average at best and not a guy who is going to scare anybody. As for IAF, he ran a 4.8 something and a 4.91 at the combine so I seriously doubt he was drafted to be a Cover 2 DE. I think he is insurance in case we loose Redding next year and as a possible replacement for Rogers should he not be in shape or effective in our
Cover 2. I'd guess Devries will be in the playing rotation at DE, the position is not a strength on this team.

Tampa really didn't let White go. White became a free agent and was going to make way more money than he did on his original contract and chose to go somewhere else to do that. TB may have offered him a contract, we don't know for sure. With Simeon Rice still in TB with a high salary, I would guess they wouldn't want to pay him what Detroit paid him. I would think Marinelli and Barry would know what his potential really is. They spent more time with him than any other TB coaches.

White was highly overpaid and Tampa was willing to let him go. They replaced him with Adams in the draft an upgrade. So yes we locked ourselves up on a backup, IAF will almost definitely move to the middle and replace Redding after next year when we again will look to draft another DE. White was highly overpaid as a Marinelli guy, So while Im not pleased to see White here, he is sadly the best DE we got. IAF will sub in and play I think on some short yardage plays or running plays because Edwards has shown he is one dimensional and our DTs are always hurt or need a blow. Im not sold on IAF, it was a huge project pick. Make no mistake about it, the DL is very weak in the cover 2 scheme.

In the NFL money talks, when you are paid lots of money you are automatically started, Garcia learned this first hand from Harrington.(poor Mariucci) So when the Lions pay starter money to unwarranted players we make make them starters by default. Cant exactly sit a guy making 30 million for DeVries that has always been here.

Rogers and Williams started for the coaches that drafted them. Rogers was always a starter during the regular season in Detroit when he was healthy.
