    Go Drew! You can do this. I always thought you should start when Stafford is injured. Beat those nasty Packers!

    Once again, halftime, in pretty good shape. Defense is defending but what’s happened to Drew’s accuracy? Best is not doing very well. We could get lucky today. I’d rather be lucky than good.

    OUTSTANDING DETROIT! Great job by the defense. Also good to get a legal shot on their QB without a lousy call by the refs. Let’s finish out the season strong!

    Thank you Lions. Most teams would have given up, would have folded on the season. Not our Lions. You could easily be near the top of the division, and when the breaks didn’t go your way this year, you didn’t quit. There are alot of lessons today’s youth could learn from all of you. So THANK YOU for playing your hardest week after week. Keep it up, there are alot of us die hard fans out here that are cheering for you every time you take the field.

    I am not a Lions fan, but a Giants fan. However, I feel the need to post something to fuel this conversation and hopefully someone in the front office may look at this and say to themselves, “that’s actually a good idea.” Your problems are with consistent QB play and experience that will help develop Stafford, Hill, and Stanton. My proposal is that you go out there in the off season and pick up Donovan McNabb who is more than likely to be cut, if not self-opt-out of his contract with Washington. Despite what insiders reports may be regarding his performance, he has been to a Super Bowl, consistently led the Eagles to NFC Championship games, and can resurrect his career in the right conditions. Dome conditions would work with his abilities, very similar to Dante Culpepper when Moss was still a Viking (the first time). With Calvin Johnson at WR and an assortment of slot receivers, you won’t have to waste another first round draft pick on an offensive weapon that you could easily acquire through free agency. The benefits are also in developing your younger quarterbacks with his knowledge and presence on and off the field. Then you can take your first round pick and utilize it to acquire a solid running back (either fast or powerful); but the key is here to acquire both a speed runner and a power running, similar to the 2 back formations that most playoff contention teams are utilizing (like the Giants). Then follow the lead of your competitors in the NFC North and draft a really talented linebacker, similar to a A.J.Hawk or Brian Urlacher, because the presence the set on the field is monumental and will serve as a solid base for acquiring talent on the defense from free agents who want to be apart of resurrecting this team and finally get back to, at the very least, hosting a Monday night game that they are actually playing in.
