  • Can the Lions Reach 8-8 in 2010? Discuss!

    I say no. But since it is the twilight of the 2009 season for the Lions and jockeying position for the 2010 draft has begun, I thought it may be fun to discuss.

    So Detroit sports talk personality Doug Karsch (97.1 fm the ticket in Detroit for those not familiar) said something today on air that I wanted to share here.

    He looked into his Lions crystal ball and saw an 8-8 season in 2010 given these stipulations

    1) they sign Reggie Bush
    2) draft 2 defensive lineman & 2 offensive lineman

    In my opinion, Karsch is a fairly credible sports mind ... although hes an MSU grad who kisses major U of M butt and is constantly reminded of it ;o) Anyway, here was his rd 1 rd 2 picks for the draft I helped him along in rd 3 & 4 with some lineman ideas. By the way if Brandon Graham slips into rd 2 that would be a great pick.

    1) Ndamukong Suh, Hulk, Huskers (Gerald McCoy if Suh is gone)
    2) Brandon Graham DE, U of M
    3) Vladimir Ducasse G, UMass (Jason Fox LT The U)
    4) Jon Asamoah G, Illinois (Tony Washington LT Abeline Christian)

    As a side note ...
    Ndamukog Suh through 12 games has 70 tackles, 7.5 sacks, 13.5 TFL, 17 QB hurries, 10 deflected passes & 3 blocks on special teams! This in 12 games with the Big 12 Conference Championship Saturday against Texas & a bowl game remaining … (wow!)

      To be frank, I think it will take 2 more drafts to get us into .500 territory, one more draft simply isn't enough IMO. We just have too many holes to fill thanks to Millen, before we can begin to move in a very positive direction. I'df say 4 to 6 wins next year with 8 wins the following year if we draft well.
      The guy is just being way too optomistic. Not always but generally young QB's break out in their 3rd year and begin to reach their full potential.
      And proud of it!!!

        i absolutely love the way he drafts. we need another safety, corner and wide receiver in addition to those picks though so i'd say we'd still only get 5-6 wins.

          Build with the beef!

          Get younger, get massive and move piles up front. That draft would aid in doing this, I am not sure about 8-8.

          Let's start with going .500 in conference. That would be amazing yr 2 of this regime.

                      AFC East and NFC East next year. Nope. We've been blown out in every division game too. Week 2 was closer than the 27-13 score but still its Minny and they should sweep us again.

                      I agree we need two Dline and 2 Oline. Oh and 2 secondary players.

                            I'd like to see us get some help in the secondary, maybe Berry if Suh is gone.

                              8-8 is WAY too optismistic considering that there's been no mention of upgrading the secondary whatsoever other than indirectly doing so with the addition of Suh and Graham on the line.

                              Based on the assumptions made, a 5 win season seems reasonable at this point.
