I know, I know, this isn't technically Lions-related, but I wanted to know what guys thought of the new season. It's always interesting to see the inner workings of an NFL franchise, regardless of what franchise it is. I gotta be honest, I was somewhat dissapointed to hear Schwartz say that he would never allow the Lions to do the show on his watch. *Insert Frowny Face Here*
A couple of guys POD'ers discussed drafting:
John Conner, FB: This guys is an absolute BEAST. I remember a few different people standing on the soapbox saying we should get this guy, and after watching him in camp I wholeheartedly agree. Dude already looks like the hardest hitter the Jets have, and he hasn't even played a regular season game yet. I would be surprised if he's not a Pro Bowl FB within three years.
Kyle Wilson: Damn. Yep, he's as good as we all thought he would be. If we had found some way to get him, he would easily be the best Corner on our roster from day one, which is as much a testament to how shitty our secondary is as it is a testament to his skill. He looks like he's going to have a hell of a career.
Also, what are your guys thoughts on all the backlash on Rex Ryan for the amount of F-bombs he dropped? I think it's being blown WAY out of proportion, let's keep in mind that this is HBO, not Nickelodeon, people, and that Ryan coaches grown ass men in the NFL, not kids in the Little League World Series.
