    One of our players took his knee out. He was starting to come on pretty strong.

    Good player...always had his head in the clouds, though.

    Avril is nearing the free agent time of the season.
    I say let him go and sign Jake Long for the O-Line instead.
    To replace Avril...we draft a starter......Ziggy Ansah.......:)

    I don't think Ziggy is the answer.

    Ziggy could do the answer. But I think Margus Hunt is the steal of the draft.

    Bush rumored to be talking with the Lions. Would love to see them sign him.


    Free-agent RB Reggie Bush is on his way to Detroit to visit w/the Lions. Would be a good fit, playing the role they'd hope Best would fill.​

    He might do good here. $5M, $8M, $10M..?
    he might have 2 good years left.

    We haven't had a good RB who could catch the ball out of the backfield...since Dexter Bussey............

    Bush could break a play or 2. I'll take Altie Taylor

    Has to be at least $8M plus incentives. The Lions haven't had a talented RB since Barry

    I think I'll be in the minority here... but I'm not impressed at all by the signing, never been a fan of his and he's a luxury to have on a great team... a cherry on top of the sundae type of thing.... he can't do the heavy lifting, and we need that in the backfield right now.

    If Bush and Leshoure are both healthy, RB will not be an issue in 2013. In fact, the offense will not be an issue in 2013.
