|20 hours 10 min ago||Really like Killebrew||
Can't hurt to have a couple Swiss army knives back there. I also think Pep is more explosive than any of our current return options. I think he can have a Devin Hester type of impact.
|21 hours 53 min ago||Peppers and Taco tonight||
If Peppers is available, I wish the Lions would take him. They have to pay Stafford and Ansah this offseason, so you need someone who can fill multiple roles (LB, S, KR/PR) to save some money.
JD, Wormley, Butt will go tomorrow.
|22 hours 2 min ago||You invalidated everything you said with...||
..."my 40 year Lion fandom". j/k
I think this is the first time since the Barry years where there's real reason for hope. But Ansah's rookie deal expires after the season and Stafford is also looking at a new contract. I don't see how the Lions make this work without crippling the salary cap in the future. Hopeful, but still concerned.

But they can control who their franchise drafts. Either way, I want him to slide to the Lions because I don't think he gets out the first round. Per alum Adam Schefter:
|1 day 19 hours ago||A POSBANG for this?||
Cheering for someone losing a job is just as classless as what he said about JP's urine sample. We should be better than that.
Also, before people start complaining about what he said regarding the Orange Bowl, there was a report yesterday on the radio (no not on Valenti's show) that NFL execs are questioning the authenticity of his hammy injury before the game.
Since I watch nothing on ESPN outside of the games (even turning off the halftime shows), I have no idea how bad he is. But this is a low blow.
|1 day 21 hours ago||I haven't watched ESPN during the day in years||
But based on Twitter responses, they had Lavar Ball on again doing bench presses or something else stupid. At some point, they'll realize people tune in for sports, not individual personalities.
|1 day 22 hours ago||OSU/B1G blogger Austin Ward is gone||
I wonder what this means for the future of the team-specific blogs.
I've been informed that I'm no longer employed at ESPN. Greatly enjoyed covering the B1G, and will immediately try to find a new challenge!
|1 day 22 hours ago||When I worked at a dotcom in 2000||
There was an appropriately named website called f*ckedcompany.com. We always checked it to see the dotcom bubble burst on another company. They would post internal communications and anything else that a pissed off employee would submit.
Since it's a NSFW site, I can't check to see if it's still in existence and pumping out content today.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Deadspin has a running list for those interested|
|1 day 23 hours ago||They might keep just Melrose||
I think he's also working with NHL Network, so they might keep him part-time or at least through the playoffs.
|1 day 23 hours ago||I could see their NHL guys getting axed.||
They treat hockey like a third tier sport now.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Jemele Hill was referenced to in a positive light||
From the ESPN statement:
I have a hard time believing she'll be cut.
|1 day 23 hours ago||True epitome of anywhere but MSU||
UNLV went 11-21, so I doubt we'll cross paths with them for at least one year.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Was he that hard on Reuben Foster?||
That dude was a total dick during the combine before we knew about the diluted sample. Either way, it never ends well arguing with people like that on Twitter. They will never admit it if they're wrong.
|2 days 21 hours ago||I wish they could incorporate Wayne State||
The campus is a nice walk from the LCA and there's probably another local D-II school they could play.
|2 days 22 hours ago||Henson probably had the strongest arm||
The difference between him and Brady was apparent. Grbac was accurate but he didn't really have a cannon for an arm.
|2 days 22 hours ago||Two of those guys were head cases||
John Elway had a rocket arm. Let's use that for a comparison.
|2 days 22 hours ago||Google "Miracle at Michigan"||
Yes, it's still too soon.
|3 days 14 hours ago||TV Networks||
If ABC/ESPN doesn't want us at night, there's nothing we can do. Their noon or 3:30 timeslot is preferred over BTN at 7PM. The only year where our matchup would've been worthy of a night slot was 2015 and that was a home game for us. I have a hunch that if ABC wanted us at night one of those years in EL, Sparty would've pulled the trigger.
|3 days 14 hours ago||Game time makes no major difference||
People will be drunk at 8PM anyways. Only difference is they would be in a stadium and not on Main St. instead.
|3 days 17 hours ago||As a Lions fan...||
...who read the Freep article on Charles Rogers last week, I wish we would've paid more attention to those habits and passed on him. I mean, we took him instead of Andre Johnson.
|3 days 21 hours ago||Only way Madden is coaching here||
Is if he's fired from an NHL head coaching gig or never gets one in the first place. He's one Tortorella meltdown away from being the head guy in Columbus. Also, the Devils will likely be in the hunt for a new HC in the next two years. So, bringing Madden back to NJ is very possible.
|3 days 22 hours ago||LSU||
With Les Miles as our 10th assistant coach.
|3 days 22 hours ago||Too soon||
It's been 11 years and I'm still not able to think about that scenario.
|6 days 18 hours ago||It this will be our worst weekend, I'll take it||
Missing out on a TE and QB, two positions Harbaugh can coach up and recruit well, doesn't bother me much. With Peters and McCaffrey in the fold, a 5-star or high 4-star QB is purely luxury right now. TE might hurt, but I TWJ and the crew will be just fine...especially with Muhammad seemingly in the class silently.
|6 days 18 hours ago||Richt was SEC Lloyd||
Richt was not a typical SEC coach. Not slimy, won't do "whatever" to get recruits. Still ended up with good classes. But it felt like his teams always played to the talent level of their opponent.
We'll see what happens if they fall apart in conference season again, but he should continue to recruit very well down there.
|6 days 22 hours ago||Scotty Bowman couldn't get them into the playoffs||
Their incredible luck in shootouts masked how bad they were. I will say this though: I don't think Blashill is the answer. I don't believe the players respect him. I don't think the vets listen to him and I don't think the youngsters (Mantha and AA) like getting yo-yo'd in the lineup while inferior players (Glendening, Miller, etc) are getting too much ice time.
|6 days 22 hours ago||It's all relative||
You would have to ask them to define what high standards means to them. It could be focusing all the roid rage on the football field, not off.
|6 days 22 hours ago||Not related||
This happened a couple weeks ago I believe.
|6 days 22 hours ago||I thought he was one of the alleged players||
Either way, if these guys are convicted, I wonder if this could be the first instance of the dreaded "Lack of institutional control" charge being levied for this type of infraction.
