I was just sitting here reading all the good news and getting pumped for this new season, then it struck me. We have Stafford, Suh, and CJ that are all going to eventually need contracts renewed. Unfortunately from how this currently went down our two highest paid players in the same year(Stafford and Suh). Aside from franchise tags and what have you I hope this team does mesh and does do well because admittedly I am getting attached to these guys and I hope our franchise can be built around them. What are your though do you think if this team starts living to the potential they wil stick around for the same amount or is a it a very scary reality we might lose our favorites.
I guess there has not been in my eyes a franchise player we can all rally around like dare I say Barry Sanders. This area loved them some Barry. I am starting to see Staff, Suh, and CJ starting to fill this role.
What are your thoughts in our future...Do you think we have the players that actually care more then the money? Did Suh just holdout because we wanted 6 years on the contract and, he did not want to stick around here?
Here's hoping that we found the future Lions HoF's like Sanders, Sims, Barney...
