    Hmmmm, it already is. One good RB that they can keep healthy for 1000 yards or more and they would be very tough.

    Why would Calvin want to go anywhere else at this point? He will get a fair offer, and as you rightly say, the upside is tremendous with that team.

    Avril gets the franchise tag = $10.6 million for the 2012 season.

    Lions have until March 13th to fit this number under the salary cap - At 25 he's a Great young player who should have a Bright Future on the D line, they just need to sign him to a long term deal...

    Great news for Stafford too. :lol2 Didn't they restructure some contracts to get under the cap to make room for Johnson?

    The Lions need him on the field - What a Dumb Ass :norton

    1st time he's been caught so the NFL will more than likely just fine him and send him off to rehab :deal

    Tigers WIN

    Second Lion inside of a week doing the same thing. 22 year old millionaires. What could possibly go wrong?

    Now DT Fairley gets busted doing over 100mph while DUI - what a Dumb Puck !

    It will be interesting to see what the NFL does and the Lions...

    I watched one game of Fairley's entire college career, a bowl game. During that game, the announcers told the world Fairley would be a problem. The psychological evaluation was easy. Easy to do, and easy to ignore, apparently.

    It's a mistake to think the NFL cares how its players act.
    The NFL cares about how they play, and nothing else.

    They'll do something when he's found naked in Miami eating somebody's face.
    There's a discplinary threshold of one mary jane, two DUIs and a public display of bad taste.
    They'll get permission from the union to get him some counseling.

    "High!!!"

    The hell is going on with the Lions this off season? Are these guys striving to become the new Bengals?

    How many does that make this off-season? And note, they are not in Detroit behaving badly.

    I think that is six infractions with four different players. I've lost count. Troubling part is, if the coaches can't get these idjits to be smart enough to not get arrested, how the hell are they gonna get through a game, let alone a season, without fucking up and forgetting what they are told to do. No discipline, and it is a big problem. I expect a pretty decent step backward for this team this season. Be lucky to see 8-8.

    Me thinks, that all these off season "distractions" are actually a prelude to a Kick Pucking Ass Season, just like last year when Most Everyone believed that the "Old Lions" would do as they had for the last who knows how many seasons = Lose and Not Make the Playoffs.

    At the end of the day, who really gives a Shit?

    Morals, Values, Being a Positive Role Model & doing the Right Thing?

    Those are "Old School".

    Just WIN, right - that's what really matters? !

    If the Lions can stay Healthy, we're looking at another 10 & 6 season or maybe even 11 & 5 with another Playoff Birth in 2012/2013 :deal

    The Motor City can use every Winner they can get especially with the Tigers struggling...

    If they go 11 & 5 Detroit won't care if they are cannibals and zombies.

    They have a tougher schedule and nothing I've read or listened to has told me they have addresses their inability to tackle or stop the run. Stafford will need to stand on his head if the team continues to give up 20+ per game. Couple that with the lack of a stable running game and I don't think I am looking at the "same old Lions", I am looking at a team that is going to have a helluva time winning.

    Unfortunately, the "Just Win and all is forgiven" is a problem, IMO. There are organizations that are able to win without having a bunch of thugs and fuck-ups in their locker room. I'd rather have my kid watching a group of stand-up men playing their asses off and coming up just short than a bunch of douch-bag hoodlums going 11-5. JMHO.
