The Martin Factor

The actual term is being "Mayhewed"... I am seeing a great deal of posturing and speculation as well as, fans (including myself) checking every possible web site for the latest and greatest mock draft and who the Lions will pick next. (The one with the worst has us picking a DE first) however, I do believe that for once in our lifetimes we are in a great position.. one which lends credence to what Martin Mayhew has been doing all along... that position being "not desperate". We have never been anything but, desperate...even in the 90's when we were close we were still desperate at draft time. I am beside myself with anticipation as to the next "Mayhewed" victim...(I will be ready to call the special victims unit and not just to see Mariska this time) The needy positions will be clearer way before draft day because the entire staff may be ringing doorbells at midnight FA signing day and Martin will probably trade our first round pick to the Raiders (even though its been given away already that's how good He's been) and get 5 other first - third round picks.  So, come draft day we all can relax, drink the budweiser flavored kool-aid and watch our Lions pick a wide receiver and not need a difibrulator.  I almost choked to death on the kool-aid this year ~ next year I might need hospitalization on my aflac plan!  I hope you Lions fans keep writing those good articles...because after the season I go through the 5 stages of death: 1) Denial 2) anger 3) bargaining 4) depression 5) acceptance in that order.  Your posts make it easier to get through #4 and recording the games helps to keep the dream alive in the off season but, makes the wife want to commit me none-the-less.
