    Suh is the pick. Backus is Detroit's T, Schwartz loves his skills. Unless ....... he can be RT & we get rid of Cherilus?? There might be a team willing to trade for ol' Gos right? (Buffalo)

    Killer seems to think that he is still a strong possibility. While he is a luxury pick [Suh may be a luxury pick to a certain degree], hes gonna be needed more down the road.

    But then again... check out Pride of Detroit's statistical look at our roster. LINK Backus was better then 84% [!!!!] of the league's OT [based on their criteria]. That's pretty good. Whereas our DTs STUNK. Something to chew on...
    Welcome back wingboy ... ;o) Yeah, Backus is not as awful on the field as Detroit sports talk radio makes him out to be. People assume if the Oline is weak or bad it's the highest profile guy's fault ... our G's have been awful for sooo long, this crew of coaches/GM get that & are fixing things. YES!

      Yeah, if you look at the link, our LG was the worst in the league.

        man-ram wouldn't have made it in pee-wee football last year.

        adding two impact trench guys in williams and kvb, and now 1 more at the top of the draft will make for one heck of a good offseason.

            "This is a football town," Sims said Tuesday, per John Niyo of the Detroit News. "Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Detroit. I mean, that's football. Football and cars. This is more of what I'm accustomed to. Out there [in Seattle] the stars are Bill Gates and Paul Allen and the people that run Boeing. This here is what being in the NFL is supposed to be about, [standing] up here at the mic talking to reporters and stuff. In Seattle, it's not like that. It's drinking coffee, sittin' down and chit-chatting. This is a change, but it's a change that I've been looking forward to."

                  that just means we don't have to feel guilty about lowballing his contract extension.

                    Seahawks didn't get rapped, they are just in rebuilding mode and trying to pile up on draft picks.
                    Correct. They dont think Sims fits the new ZBS system they're putting in. As for Seahawks fans being upset with Sims he didnt really help out in the run game as far as i could see.

                      That really hurts my feelings that all we do is sit around drinking Espresso and talk football.

                      Maybe if the team had won a few more games it would feel more like Pittsburgh. All i can say to Sims is your going to freakin Detroit dont get your hopes up too high.
