Remember when the Lions drafted Stafford first overall? Remember the boo-birds around the city that accompanied that selection? I do. I was one of them. I was buying into the idea that LB Curry was the safest, most sure talent in the draft. I don't remember ever being so happy about being so wrong.
Remember in the preseason when all the "experts" declared they would rather have Josh Freeman as their starting QB than Stafford? I wasn't so on board with that train of thought, but I did doubt that Stafford was the franchise. Boy, am I happy that Schwartz, Lewend, and Mayhew pulled the trigger (instead of me.)
For any Lions fan out there that was not convinced the Lions front office was the real deal, I hope you've been silenced and thrilled with the fact that you've been proven wrong. I am thrilled about being wrong.
No matter what the Lions do in the playoffs this year, the transformation that has begun, and continues to take place, leaves little opportunity for qualms regarding the trajectory of the franchise and the talent of the Lions personnel with the nuclear codes.
And finally, F Mark Sanchez.
