It's Terry Foster so take it FWIW but if it's true I'm pretty bummed the Lions didn't give him a shot.
OT: LaMarr Woodley Wanted To Give The Lions A Home Town Discount
I love LaMarr, hell we all love LaMarr, but would he be a good fit outside of a 3-4?
Larry Foote. Just didn't seem to fit the scheme.
it ain't worth shit
that I would hate to see him commit career suicide by coming to Detroit. . .
And the "Lions career suicide" meme needs to be given the blood angel.
You've been a Lions detractor for a while, surely you realize this.
For exmaple, Barry Sanders career was highly successful. Millions made, Hall of Famer, and legend. The team itself was mediocre, but Sanders career was a success. Same for Megatron.
Yeah, well, they're still the worst franchise in the NFL not from Jacksonville.
Cleveland Browns lose more games overall and more rivalry games. Splitting the series with BAL last year was early season fortune and not a trend or even parity of the type MBB has just won vs some of our rivals with such valor.
And Oakland is better?
The raiders are so bad they make the lions look like the patriots by comparison.
Actually a good move by the lions. Doesn't fit in a 4-3. Still pissed the lions didn't draft him or Harris in the second round. Instead Millen took Drew Stanton.
Did he play a 3-4 in college?
OLB, WDE AND SDE at Michigan...
Brandon Graham played MLB (for like a month), WDE and SDE at Michigan.
That he's going to Oakland to be a 4-3 weakside DE...right? Guess not. He can play both OLB and WDE (as he did at Michigan).
I wish teams still ran a 5-2 like my D in high school so I had an understanding of what they're trying to do.
He didn't fit the scheme and the Lions don't really need him. Not to mention they have very limited cap space.
Just another reason the Lions are so pathetic.
Unless the discount was like 50% of what he got in Oakland, it wasn't worth it. An aging DE with possible injury problems is not what the Lions need.
