      • Also they may wanna wait for someone to get cut a few weeks into the preseason. Jason Snelling from the falcons would have been a good fit for you guys though Im glad he re-signed with the falcons on sunday.

        • I wish someone took a picture of Jerome Harrison's face when he found out Mike Bell was coming here too.

          • Looks like the Lions have signed RB Joique Bell. If you remember he came out of Wayne State a couple of years ago after winning the Harlon Hill Trophy. He was also compared to Walter Payton when he was coming into the league (obviously he hasn't lived up to that yet). Anyway, I'm glad we signed him because I really wanted the Lions to get him after he went undrafted. So I'm guessing this means we might rest Kevin Smith for the last game, which is a smart move since we can't afford any more injuries at that position.

And when you lose they start crawling out. Now what we'll do is when they crawl out we'll get there names and remember their faces so when we start winning again we'll know who we can trust"

            • Bell's signing smells like a no-so-secretive attempt to mine some knowledge of the Saints' offense from him. New Orleans is a potential 1st round foe.

                Good move.
                With the way the Packers rush defense has made stiffs look, including giving up 199 to the bad news Bears backup RBs last night, Bell could jump in and have a huge game. Just hand him the ball and tell him to pick which hole he wants to run through.

                By the way, if it were up to me, these guys would not suit up next week:
                • Rodgers
                • Nelson
                • Finley
                • Matthews
                • Woodson
                • Tramon
                • Raji
                • Burnett

                What's the details between you and Atlanta and the #5 & #6 scenarios?
                What do you guys want, 5 or 6? Who do you guys not want to face in the WC round? I would assume New Orleans... so that means you want the #5 and go to NYG or Dallas......

                • I want the 5th seed and I don't want our guys to get complacent. I want them to keep on winning and play hard every snap. Their slogan needs to be "earn it". This is all a learning experience.

                  • Definitly 5th seed. Priority #1 should be to not go to the super dome.

                    If GB plays rodgers on sunday I hope we blitz every time. Hit him every time he passes the ball and force them to sit him down

                    • A game against Dallas would be excellent. We'd get to play in a dome against a beatable team.

                      • Plus Dallas would be guaranteed to choke. We could take bets on how they would blow it. Coach icing own kicker? Romo botching an XP hold? Them randomly throwing a couple pick 6's when they have the lead? It would be awesome.

                          Roseman, at one point, had a deal to send Samuel to the Lions for a second-round pick, two sources close to the situation said. Roseman even went so far as to have the Lions call Samuel. But he wanted a first round pick instead and called off the deal.

                          (UPDATE: I received further clarification on this proposed deal from another source close to the situation. The compensation for Samuel that was agreed upon was not just a second round pick, but two second day draft picks, and the deal fell apart for reasons other than draft compensation.)
                          Just found this. Really interesting. Lions almost traded for Asante Samuel. He could have really made a difference for us.

                          • He would have been very useful this week and we could have kept him as Wright walked next year.

                            • Would have been sweet at the time but he is 31 years old. Probably best that this trade didn't happen.

                              • Pretty sure the Eagles will cut Samuel this offseason due to his salary so the Lions might still get him without having to spend any draft picks.
