  • The Atlanta offer

    Drew sharpe said that atlanta had an offer of both 2nd round picks for moving upto 2. However, they balked when the lions wanted a 3rd as well.

    Anybody have millen's e-mail address???

    If this is true then Millen should be shot and our draft grade drops a lot, however I don't we had that offer but I could be wrong.

      We had three second round picks anyway and we still got Calvin Johnson. The problem was we used the second round picks on questionable picks although I do like Alama Francis if he is healthy and Marinelli gets the most out of him.

        I'd rather have P Willis, Blalock, and Houston compared to CJ21 considering that two of those three are need areas and and Blalock probably would have beat out Pillar and Mulitalo for a starting job. 3 starters compared to 1 seems like a no brainer to me.

          hell, the draft is what it is... no amount of complaining and nit-picking is gonna change it. I'd be surprised if that was the offer...

            Really, how in the hell does Drew Sharp know that.

            It's the same as we heard that the Patriots offered this and that in the Charles Rogers draft. We don't know, no one will know unless Rich McKay comes out and says "Yes I was on the phone with the Lions and etc etc." He won't say that and we won't know.

              If we would have done that draft, Millen would have still drafted the same 3 players in the second, we would just have Hall/Willis over CJ.

                Honestly after we drafted Calvin I wanted to keep him. I never felt that way until after they read his name.

                    Plus I don't think Marinelli saw a ILB he really liked in this draft after Patrick Willis. With the way Millen was going after players we would have gotten the ILB if Marinelli really wanted him.

                      Thanks for asking for the kitchen sink because McKay and Blank was willing to give up the faucet and knobs.

                      Just not the whole first day.

                      Thanks a million because we now, on paper, have one of the quickest defenses in the NFL.

                        I like the draft, everyone wanted a QB and now that we took one everyone is upset. We pretty much all agreed that CJ was fine if he stayed, now it happens ppl are mad.

                        Embrace our draft, what happened happened. I think we picked up some solid players in this draft. We should be happy that marinelli finally had some say in our selection of players, if his system is right we will be more than satisfied with this draft.

                        We should have taken an MLB like harris earlier, i agree. but we cant complain about stanton after many people wanted a QB.

                          I was fine with our draft. I am not really as high on Patrick Willis as most of the other Lions fans are.

                            Guess what. Rich McKay was interviewed on the nfl network and confirmed, "entire first day + picks from '08" Now how do you feel?

                              We turned in his card, good move, we had to or the phones would've rang in cleveland instead. I wasn't too worried when Tampa picked, I was dissapointed when Landry didn't last to #8. Then started panicking. When Quinn was falling I thought for sure we'd pick up the phone w/ Denver. By the Stanton pick I was in stage 1 denial. It's stage 2 anger now.
