Expectations

I would love to truly know what your expectations are for the Lions. Playoffs this year? Playoffs next year? or Playoffs in 3+ years? Because for most of you i think the answer is it is going to take at least 1 more season of losing, am i right? I say this because in 2 years everyone we signed or Traded for this year will be gone.This is why Aaron Curry should be considered for the top pick. Julian Peterson is leaving in 2 years because we will not be having winning seasons and the guy wants a ring. So Curry fills an immediate need at MLB for 2 years and if that isn't his stongest suite you move him back to OLB because Peterson is gone or he plays like  Patrick Willis/Jon Beason/Jerod Mayo and we keep him there and since he is playing like a Beast we will prob be winning games so maybe Peterson will then stay and we can get some more guys on this Defense because Detroit now looks like a NFL team and not a Divison III Girls Powder Puff team. Now ok you take Matthew Stafford/Mark Sanchez he then sits out his 1st year he then comes in his 2nd season and does well (Stafford/Sanchez could be great but is there anyone out there who truly believes he will come in and light it up right away?) so now you have a DNP for a season and a Decent-Good season where as with Curry you would prob get at the least 2 Average seasons. You take Eugene Monroe/Jason Smith the best thing that could happen is they come out and have a Ryan Clady type season and are considered one of the best OTs in the game the worst thing is that they are better then Backus but are just an upgrade at OT but you would still get 2 Moderate seasons out of them

Now i really don't see Curry going to the Lions but i am explaining why i argue for him. Stafford looks like the pick which i really don't like but if it was one of the OTs i would be thrilled
