      what you're saying is Detroit should draft a wide receiver in the first round?

          i know they should i just want them to bc im a UGA fan and they only got 1 year together in college. Right now they arent a OL that is ranked a high to draft early so they might have to look in another direction via trade.

            My thoughts exactly. McNeil makes a lot of sense and that's a trade I would do in a heartbeat. It would stop them reaching for a LT in the 1st rd and allow them to concentrate on defense.

            The Lions actually have a better chance of grabbing Peterson now that Stafford is hurt and will likely miss half the season. A shutdown CB like Peterson or Prince A, trade for McNeil and then use the 2nd rd (provided they don't send it to the Chargers under such a scenario) on a OLB or more OL help.

              this is all true. But we need to address OT and we need to do it fast. Watching stafford get hit like that scares the crap outa me and we cant let it happen over and over again

                he's an NFL QB, he's gonna get hit no matter what. The Lions need talent more than they need anything else. If there's no elite LT available next year, I say we grab Peterson and try to get lucky in the second round.

                And for god's sake we need to get Staff a few lessons in how not to land on your throwing shoulder.

                  In a couple years it will be illegal to touch the qb. We shouldn't even bother with an oline.

                    Yes, we need to upgrade left tackle. However, taking a left tackle just to take one is stupid. Let me use Scott's car analogy. If you buy an expensive car you're not going to overpay for a below average insurance policy that offers little coverage, just for the sake of having an insurance policy.

                      on the other hand, Scott always says if you don't have a franchise QB etc. etc. and he's right. but right now we've got a potential franchise QB, but we're ruining him by giving him the David Carr treatment.

                      If there is an LT out there worthy of a high pick, we can't afford not to take him.

                        The line is not THAT bad, so no we aren't giving him the David Carr treatment.

                          I'll admit to that being a little hyperbolic.

                            problem is we're in a division that has 2 of the best DE's in the game. That being said we also have a 2nd year QB that has separated his throwing shoulder twice.

                            if there's not an elite DE available then lets trade for a veteran LT. If it takes our 2nd round pick so be it. We can get all the talent in the world but if we have a QB who gets killed every game and continues to get hurt we still won't win.

                              to be honest, like someone said earlier, i'd be all for biting the bullet and working a trade for Marcus Mcniel. we'd have to pay up, in money and probably send a 3rd and either a guy like goz or maybe a 5th, not really sure, but why not just sack up and fix this problem now. Move backus to RT and all of a sudden we have a very good oline.

                                Injured three times in 17-games worth of NFL season. He's definitely not being done any favors.
