New, comments

Bob Quinn doesn’t seem to eager to draft a running back.

  • File this under: COULD VERY WELL BE A SMOKESCREEN, but Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn made it sound like he’s in no hurry to grab a running back in next week’s draft. Here’s what Quinn said during his Thursday press conference:

“I think we have enough running backs to be competitive. Now, is that saying I’m not going to take one? I don’t know, tell me who’s going to be on the board in the second, third, fourth round. I mean, I don’t know.”

He not-so-subtly left out the first round there. Hmmmmmm.

  • The Lions are already six-point favorites in Week 1 against the Jets:

  • The folks over at The Athletic put together an all-time Detroit Lions mock draft, featuring the best players to ever don the Honolulu Blue. It’s a pretty neat article, especially since they got guys like Dan Orlovsky and Mike O’Hara to play GM.

Okay then.
