Well when you are the only one in the back 7 that can tackle, you have to do some head ass running. Actually Bullocks was ok but needs work. Peterson,Foote,hopefully Delmas based on his scouting and Bullocks staying at least ok should help big time back there. I don't think I've ever seen so many solid tacklers at the LBs and Safeties for Detroit.

Can't teach speed like Sims has. You can give him one more year, but he's got 2 years left on his rookie deal. So he's got 2 years and hopefully he does enough to be worthy of resigned in the next 2 years.

And yet he still misses far too many tackles. Trying to do too much ends up hurting the team just as much as the horrid players because he seems to be incapable of playing within the damn defense. We got killed by cutback runs last year while Ernie was having a party on the wrong side of the field.

He has two more years on his rookie deal, but I'm personally done with him after this year if he doesn't step up and learn that playing within the scheme is more important than just running around. You can't teach speed, but so far no one's been able to teach Sims how to play his damn position either.

I like Sims much more as a compliment to a defense then someone that gets focused on. I think the additions of Foote and Peterson will help out his play. Going 0-16 has it's psychological affect on players. Honestly I don't think he will cost that much. I think he gets a contract around what Briggs got, but a bit under because he's done less in his career and Briggs signed for something very reasonable.

We traded Alexander for Dennis Northcutt. Another WR, the coaching staff must not like what they see yet.

Also A article about Bullocks is up on detroitlions.com, he looks bigger, hopefully he will stay healthy.

Schwartz has broken down barriers simply because he is a Lions coach.
He broke down more when he saw workers wearing Ford F-150 truck caps. He mentioned that he owns a 1994 F-150 with more than 200,000 miles. A small admission like that got the conversation going and drew a lot of smiles.

Good article. I'm surprised, as Terry Foster is about the worst writer out there. I guess every squirrel really does find a nut once in awhile.
