Yesterday was a game where Stafford could have put this team on his shoulders. That's what the best do. He wasn't good. He missed a LOT of easy ones.

But yeah, he's probably at the bottom of the problems. This team sucks.

Draft line for the first three spots. Both offense and defense. Maybe a running back, and linebacker. Back to dreaming of lions doing something right while Saints, Jags, Rams, Vikings, And Eagles go from shitty to better then the Lions .

We need all DL picks. Get the defense to finally be able to compete..

Ngata leaves or retires
Ziggy shouldn't be re-signed (unless they can get him cheap)

Go straight D-line...when you think you have enough, get some more

If injuries are such a big problem, then they'll have the depth to cover it. If everyone stays healthy, they'll have the bodies to rotate in and out as needed to keep players fresh.

They have to, HAVE to draft a running back in the top 3 rounds. It's time to get a play maker at that position.

I thought we had play makers back there.. Maybe let Green give it a go. I wonder if Elliott would run well here? But when you have someone like Dalton carving us up you have to go defense.

One thing about a team with 3 guys is maybe one or two is making the other guy look good.

Look at some of the top teams. Gurley, L. Bell, Fournette, Ingram/Kamara. You HAVE to have an impactful guy in the backfield. The team can't keep trotting out Abdullah and Tion Green. They need to invest a high pick and get this position straight.

Compare those OL to ours.. But the defense is worst than our offense. I would use the first 3 picks on defense and then I'd grab some defense.
