Wow

I loved all the comments made by the fans of the Lions.  I thought alot of them were funny as hell.  I guess there is not alot of love for Matt Stafford.  I read one post.  " I am ashamed to be a Lions fan".  Really?  This is what did it?  Not the fifty years of no champioships.  Not the " Defeated Season".  Alot of you act like we just drafted a punter.  Insert your joke here.  I thought I should set-up a suicide hot-line for some of you.  All that really happen is that the Lions drafted a quarterback over a linebacker.  There will be a tommorow.  Some people think that Stafford was the " fashion pick".  He was signed to sell jerseys.  Put the asses in the seats.  He was called "shiny" and "Hollywood".  But it seems to me that Curry would have been the fashion pick.  Who would have sold more jerseys?  Curry or Stafford.  A large segment of the Lions fans wanted Curry.  So who would have put more asses in the seats.  The fact that Mayhew and Schwartz pick Stafford over Curry.  Tells me that they have a great feeling that Stafford will be a good NFL quarterback.  Mayhew and Schwartz knew how much of a backlash this would cause.  That takes guts.  I liked the idea of Curry in a Lions uniform.  But, I like the idea of having a true starting QB.  And a true starting MLB.  Yeah that is right.  The Lions have more draft picks.   And the thing is.  If the Lions drafted Curry.  They would not have be able to get a quarterback.  Other than some 6th round project at best.  So I am pleading with the Pride of Detroit.  It is time for some clarity.  The Lions have more picks.  Don't give up just because the Lions did not draft the player you wanted.  I mean if that was the case.  Some of us would have left after the Eric Hipple pick.  Or for the newer fans.  The Mike Williams pick.  Keep the faith go Lions.  Enjoy the Draft weekend.
