    I am watchin the game and was so excited about watchin how the roster turns out, but the T.V. company the lions signed a deal with dose not provide quality service. The game dose not come in clear. There is lag and i miss alot of plays. I am so disappointed that i can not watch all of the game.

    Cannot wait to see Titus in real game situations. Deep threat at Boise State and Stafford has the arm to take advantage of his routes. Hope everyone stays healthy this year…looking forward to watching the Lions continue to grow.

    Well those of you waiting for Titus Young, whaddaya think? In my opinion and it is just that, my opinion, he had five or six balls thrown his way, but on none of them was he able to get separation from the defender. It appeared the passes were on target, but the cathces nearly impossible because he didn’t run his routes well enough to push the cover away from him. That also appeared to be a problem that Hughes had as a receiver. When you compare the routes to those of Stover, Williams and Johnson there was a lot lacking. I guess experience is at a premium, and his lack of practice time has been detrimental to his development. For me, I have a wait and see attitude. Too early to tell, but if he can’t get open, then it does not matter how quick, how fast or how many moves he has, he won’t be a positive factor in the coming season. Wishing him the best of luck, but at this time he is not a top five receiver oin this team.

    well mr schwartz, you better pray to GOD that javid doesn’t get a good knock in the head and logan doesn’t get hurt now that you got rid of brown. brown may not be a great RB, but he was known for special teams in college and he’s got speed this team needs. if logan gets hurt all you have is morris=no returner for sure,harrison= possible returner, but not really impressed, and you and i know your not putting best back there to get his clock rung. unless there is something i’m missing you(schwartz) may just have screwed this team

    If Nick Fairley doesn’t play in the first 3wks.. although i was excited about him being drafted by the PRIDE.. will be a wasted pic.. We need 1st and second rounders to make a mark early.. Also who is the third receiver this week?
