    That looks like college to me Potato Puke, not the NFL as I had stated.

    Did you guys know Colletto is the Oline and Offensive Coord.?
    I've never heard of combining the 2 jobs.
    Hope it works.

    Oh yeah, that happens a lot. Martz was OC and QB coach. Kippy will be a big part of the playcalling when it comes to passing, but Colleto will have the authority.

    Not Oline and Off/Cood.
    Oline coach is/can be above the Head Coaches loop. If he's very good.

    Re: Lions Business season begins...1ST rounder

    15. LionsChris Williams OT 6-6 317 Vanderbilt Senior[​IMG] The Lions have done a good job of revamping their secondary in free agency and will concentrate on another area in the draft. Adding a quality OT will go a long way in helping the offense be more efficient, and Vanderbilt's Chris Williams is exactly what they need.
    Previous mock draft selection: Same

    I don't follow college ball at all, but I'll be happiest with whoever Millen wants the least. That seems like a good strategy given Millen's track record. :crazy:

    It could be any one of 4 or 5 different players. But I did hear that they will stand pat on #15 and not move up or down.

    With their experiences of moving up or down, they should just avoid that, like a plague.

    I agree. They should also avoid selecting bad players. They have way too much experience at that as well.

    Nobody will touch Millen and is 15th pick. He's poison to other "serious" GMs.

    "Amir Johnson will break out during the playoffs like Tay did in 2004........:) "



    I didn't know Tay had an acne problem as well.

    Hey ! Hey ! Hey! Did I use the wrong word?
    Amir must emerge like Tay did back in '04.
    He's exceptional around the hoop. Let him flow.

    HUH?????

    Back on point---I forgot to put this article here, it's gotten a lot of run elsewhere:
    - » Why is TJ Duckett not a Lion?

    Shows one of the real problems is discord in the Front Office.

    It's up to Ford to make sure that all are accountable within the organization. It's obvious that he has failed to do this with the Lions. People at Ford Motor knew this and that is why he never had an important role within that company. When it comes right down to it, the owner is the only one who is to blame. Davidson knew when to shake Isiah free and when to keep Dumars. Ford was never good at eyeing management talent for his football team.

    No surprises in that article. Losing a power back like Duckett when we could have had him for cheap makes perfect sense for the Lions.

    I think most fans have know this for a number of years yet many continue to fill the stadium every Sunday. The only way the front office will get the shake-up it drastically needs is if the Lions are made to become as big a loser on paper ($) as they are on the field.

    I don't know if it's true or not, but I am more likely to side with Duckett on this one knowing how poorly this team has been run. The front office needs to be cleaned out. Too bad that people continue to pay for th subpar product.
