Lions offense: biggest need is a playmaker, we will get Johnson back, we get Marvin Jones back. To me there are two places to improve at WR and TE. Then, there are the injury questions to Lang. I’ve been hard on Wagner, and I think with some consistant play beside him maybe…what that leaves me is a playmaker at TE or WR, plus an additional starter at one position, plus answering the questions at RG and tackle. Back-up RB and QB are also issues. Stafford is the best QB we’ve ever had, can we push him by drafting a high end QB. Can we draft a second RB to pair with Kerryon? It will depend on what we can do with FA.
Lions defense: need here is pretty much established. We need a second CB. I watched too much holding and grabbing. For me, it is a necessity. We also need more talent at LB’er, like one who can cover someone quicker than my dead auntie. We need a replacement for Ziggy. We did not get our money’s worth. Fish or cut bait, hand me the filet knife, goddammit. I think Glover Quin is through, so I need to find a capable safety to shore up the back end.
I feel we can address some of this through FA. In fact cutting ties with Ansah, Riddick, Lang and Wagner and getting 40 million to aid in the re-build. I can get behind that. And, please do not tell me I have to pay their replacements. I know that. Throw a some rookies in at two spots and sign a mid range FA and you’ve replaced 40 million with ten million and some rookie salaries. Rather the talk was about needs than schooling me about economics
