1. Wouldn't it be really kick-ass if they beat teh Packers in the last game!!
:rofl:

Indy needs the win. The Aints are still in the running. The pack is out of it and will not be playing for anything other than another cold day.

4. As a Vikings fan, that would be my preferred scenario.
The Lions and their fans have suffered way more than enough. A winless season is just too much to heap on them - I'd love to see them put it together and beat the Pack in Lamblow.

7. Now just stop that trotsky.......
I was so praying they'd beat your viqueens, but good ol' Mr. Jackson came off the bench and did the job......d*mn. :evilgrin: If the William guys get the bench, you could hurting......GO PACK GO. I'd even be rooting for da bears before I'd root for the queens..... :rofl:

8. Yeah, I should probably root for the Pack.
That way, the fans won't be SO pissed off that they force Thompson out. You'll keep him for many years and he'll keep bringing your team down. Much better scenario! :evilgrin:

2. There's only one question left to ask:
Do they draft Matthew Stafford or Andre Smith #1 overall?

15. I'm assuming you're being sarcastic, but if you're serious
I think fans would burn Ford Field to the ground.

12. Stafford has one really, really bad habit......
He throws the ball to the other team about 3 times....nearly every other game.

And rules one threw nine in the QB-ing handbook says...don't throw the ball to the other team.

13. I hope that's meant to be hyperbole, because the facts disagree with you.

The Gators were the only team to pick him off more than twice this year.

17. Hyperbole, yes.....However.....
I recall seeing a graphic on TV this years that he'd had 3 or 4 other 3 int games. That's a losing formula. Having 3 int games one must lose 2 or 3 of those games, I'd think. Have those same stats for 2007?

5. The Lions should draft Tebow, after all...
...according to the four-letter network he walks on water like Jesus and his shit makes dry, lifeless ground spring with new life.

9. Yeah, their previous Jesus-freak (Kitna) did so well
They need this year's permutation of Jake Long.

10. Hi Lisa
I wish the Lions well. I don't think tebow is it for them and he may not be in the draft this year anyway. Maybe they need to build a new OUTDOOR stadium.

11. I wish they had!
The stadium is brand new and by all accounts beautiful, but why not take advantage of an asset like cold weather?

I can't stand Tim Tebow - is he coming out for the draft early?

16. Not if he's smart.
He's not a pro quarterback, and he's probably too tall to really make it as anything but a short-yardage halfback. I could see him as a wide receiver who gets used in a "Wildcat"-type thing about 15% of the time, but that's probably a stretch.

18. Gator fans hope you're right............
Florida signed Tebow to play football at Florida and not at Detroit or some other NFL place. A 4th year at Florida combined with 16 other returning starters.... would produce a very, very highly considered team for '09.

And the 17 returning starters returning for next season assumes that WR Harvin and MLB Spikes both come out early.

19. Just watch that first step...
...and by step, I mean game against Ole Miss. It's a doozy.
