Damn, that's a sick CB duo. :eek:

How is Foster? I don't know much about him. We got our KJ insurance though.

Vince Lombardi 03-01-2007 12:46 PM

Too late. ;)

damn i really didnt see them going through with this

I hate the NFC North: last year they give the Broncos Javon Walker, now Dre Bly.

The Denver Broncos are hard enough to face as an AFC opponent as it is.

Space Ghost 03-01-2007 12:47 PM

Broncos got jobbed IMO. Bly is nothing like he was 2 years ago IMO. They better restructure that contract hes got. Bell is on his way up in all likelihood and Foster isn't a terrible lineman, certainly a disappointment considering he was drafted in the first round to play in a zone blocking scheme where he should have dominated. I would have settled for Bell for Bly straight up if I were the Lions, but hey, Foster could help...

brilliant trade. i had no interest in giving up a draft pick, but i'm happy to get rid of those two guys for decent CB depth. also looks like foxy will stick at safety.

foster is probably slightly less worhtless than whoever played RT for you last year. he's still got a lot of potential, he just never played well.

Yea, I guess the speculation of the lions drafting a RB can stop now.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

I love Matt Millen! lol

I just started a thread earlier today in the Lions forum hoping for this exact trade to happen.

Detroit should take CJ at 2 now that they filled their OT and RB needs. lol

yeah if your keeping foxworth at saftey primarily then Bly gives you some good options. foster was worth giving up.

i think that detroit got the better end of the deal, but denver didnt care for those two guys that much.

i wonder what denver will do for a new RB w/ mike bell?

So what kind of combination of drugs does it take to get fleeced by Matt Millen in a trade? hahahaha.

you think denver ended up on the bad end? how, exactly?

bsaza2358 03-01-2007 12:55 PM

Seriously, I think it works out well for both teams. Bly wasn't coming back to Detroit, and Bell wasn't happy in Denver. Foster was a throw-in for value, but he was replacable for the Broncos. Foster at RT means the Lions can focus on a stronger skill position player at #2 overall. Joe Thomas likely is not going to Detroit now. Bell is good KJones insurance, but the Lions should consider a 4th round (give or take) RB.

Am I crazy to think that the Lions now dangle the #2 pick to Arizona (Joe Thomas) for a bunch of picks, then try to get a guy like Chris Houston or Leon Hall in Round 1?

Half serious. But it looks like we are a lock to sign Kevin Curtis so I know it won't happen.

I just think you take the best player available, and now that we have no need for Joe Thomas, it's difficult to say which player we will take at #2. I still adamently believe they won't take a QB.

Who does that leave? Gaines Adams? Trade Down? That's about it.

With the 5th overall pick?

well bell is a pretty good back and a starter. he is really just for insurace but can be a really productive 2nd back. foster was a starter for a good while and is an inprovement probable over what detroit has

dre bly just didnt seem to fit in with detroit any more now that they are a cover 2.

both teams i think gained something from this trade, but in overall value i think bell and foster are worth more than just bly

Problem is that we aren't gonna take Thomas now and Arizona knows that. Now that it appears that Thomas will fall to Cleveland though, Arizona might become a bit more desperate. It's a strange scenario.

Detroit would love to take Adams/Anderson, but I am not sure they'd do it without a trade down.

diabsoule 03-01-2007 01:06 PM

Good trade, now all speculatin of having him (Bly) come to N.O. can end.

Xiomera 03-01-2007 01:07 PM

Who thinks Denver makes a move up to grab Marshawn Lynch? I do . . .
