Let's see, they're going to pay a guy 20 million to sit on the bench for two years before he's useful, if he's ever useful.
They took a tight end, in a league where TE's average 2 or three catches at most per game if their name's not tony gonzales.
And now they just took a safety who can't cover and can't tackle. it would be funny if it weren't so sad.
did you see the tape of this safety they just took? HE NEVER WRAPS UP! he's got terrible body control, he can't stay with a WR in one-on-one. WTF?
If I hear one more person try to argue that the success or demise of a sports team has any correlation to the economy I will quit this board! PAAALEASE! "State won the NC in b-ball, I can't wait to go buy a 2009 Silverado!" "The Red Wings just won the Stanley cup, I can't wait to invest in Better Made potato chips!" "The GR Griffins just won the IHL! I am going right to Steelecase to buy that sweet new office desk!" or "The lions went 0-16, that's it, I am not shopping at Meijer this year!"
I think you get my point. Please don't mix team pride with economic vitality.
If your team wins, you may buy a hat or T-shirt, but that does not have much effect on our economic health. Unless a resident MGoEconomist can prove me wrong.
What does everyone think of of Mike Valenti after his jokes on-air about Corey Smith? This guy was always an ass but he hit an all-time low. This spartan on the radio should be fired for showing absolutely no class whatsoever.
Apparently, the most important thing the Lions need to do to turn their team around is change the logo and, possibly, color scheme.
As you would expect, most of this article is typical DS BS. But at the end, he shows a real moment of clarity in a very personal admittance as he explores the reasons for Detroit being ridiculed in the national press:
"When you're surrounded by clowns ... you shouldn't be shocked when you're constantly squirted with seltzer water."
Thank you, Drew, for pointing out that you are a clown and contribute to the city's bad image. Tool.
ANTHRAX SCARE AT FOOTBALL FIELDS IN MICHIGAN
University of Michigan football practice was delayed nearly two hours late this morning after a player reported finding an unknown, white, powdery substance on the practice field.
Head coach Rich Rodriguez immediately suspended practice while police and federal agents were called to investigate.
Suspicions were further enhanced when it became known that there was a similar finding on the home field of the Detroit Lions.
After a complete analysis, FBI forensic experts determined that the white substance, unknown to the players, was the goal line.
Practice was resumed this afternoon after special
agents decided the teams were unlikely to encounter the substance again.
