    Looks like we got a good RB.

    I’m more pleased that we made the attempt to solidify the interior OL. I still think we’ve got a serious weakness on the defensive line.

    I don't know who this Monnarez is, but he sounds like a whiny tool. Matt Patricia is making players run? Oh, the horror!

    Down 25-0 to the Browns in pre-season.

    6-10 looking like a real possibility.

    That's kinda what I'm thinking. The DL will get very little pressure on QBs this season, and that's going to be the downfall of this defense. The secondary is fine, but even they can't do much when the QBs have 4-5 seconds back there every snap.

    Re: 2018 Detroit Lions: There Is Not Enough Fireball In The Country.

    My prediction:

    9-7! And we get a wild card! Against the Vikings! And we're winning 14-12 with 2 minutes left!

    2 minute warning, Vikings have 3rd and 12 at the 50. Defense comes up with a big stop...flag, helmet rule. 15 yards. Vikings kick the game winning FG.

    Book it.

    I can't wait for Sam Darnold to wrap up the September ROY for going 23-31, 3tds next Thursday.

    Who would be fool enough to think the Lions might make the playoffs. ? Seriously?

    Jets could read plays based on formation and Stafford's hand signals, which I swear I've heard has happened before recently

    Based on the score, the Jets were doing the same thing to the D.

    Why is it that the Lions constantly find incompetent coaches? We fired a guy who actually took the team to the playoffs for this?

    At least it saves some Sunday afternoon time for projects. My Miata restoration will go smoother.

    Always the answer

    Dailying a Craigslist special '99 NB 5-speed, needs a few small things that I haven't been able to get around to (throwout bearing squeal on startup) but overall runs like a top. Debating throwing down some cash on the '19 ND - 25 HP increase in the works, that's suddenly a respectable performer.

    Or I could ship the NB to Grand Junction and let Keith play with it...not quite rich or masochistic enough for the LS1 swap though.
