They'll win the Superbowl yet.

12. How about the Juice taking handoffs from *Allen Iverson*?
http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shutdown_corner/post/H...

Danks mentioned on the podcast this morning that the best quarterback who currently calls Detroit home could well be Allen Iverson. At first, I chuckled. Then I thought about it and the chuckling stopped....

So realistically, what could we expect if Allen Iverson was placed under center for the Lions? Obviously, he'd have no knowledge of the offense, terminology, or how to read an NFL defense. These are hindrances. But those same problems don't stop JaMarcus Russell from going out there every week.

Iverson knows how to play quarterback, though. He played the position in high school and won a state title, and there are those who say he was better at football than basketball....

Certainly, it couldn't hurt the Lions, but that's not saying much. At 0-12, it wouldn't hurt the Lions to take the field in panties and paper party hats. That's not the question we're asking here.


:rofl:

13. He's a little on the small side to be an NFL quarterback, I'd say.
:)

But with his speed and hands, I could see him being a pretty good big play wide receiver. The only problem is that NFL coaches tend to be a bit more militant about players skipping practice than they are in the NBA.

"Practice?!"
