    Can't wait to proclaim who I don't want the Lions to draft so we know for certain who Mayhew will take.

    Can we talk about what a travesty it is that we're not playing the Great Lakes Classic this year?

    Goodell hated the fact that the GLC has become more revered than the Super Bowl itself.

    We ended the George Johnson offer sheet dispute by trading him to the Bucs. Not sure what we got for him but it is probably a 7th

    We swapped picks with TB. Haven't seen what picks were swapped. Guessing we're giving them a 7, and the absolute best case scenario is us getting a 6. More likely we give them our worst seven and they give us their 7 at the top of the round.

    So it was Johnson and Baltimores 7th for TBs 5. Really awesome work by Mayhew there.

    He's 31 and probably figures this might be his best shot at getting paid. It's not going to work, and he'll be there whenever it's mandatory because he doesn't make enough to be able to deal with the fines that would come from missing stuff like that.

    Ihedigbo was benched quite a bit down the stretch as well. Don't blame him for trying though.

    So with the schedules being released tomorrow, it's time to guess prime time games. I am thinking we end up with two (outside of Thanksgiving and the London game)

    MNF vs PHI
    SNF vs GB

    I'm going to guess we end up with:

    Minny on Thanksgiving
    @GB on a Sunday night
    v. Philly on a Monday night

    I think we'll play Arizona on Thanksgiving for some reason.

    If they want a good, fresh match-up, they would almost have to do something like that with the NFC West teams. I just can't see them forcing a West Coast team to play the early game on Thanksgiving, though. Seems like there would be so much bitching about it that it wouldn't be worth it for the league in the end. I just don't want it to be the Packers again. I'm tired of playing GB on FOX that day every other year.

    If Philly hadn't played Dallas last year, I think that would be a lock as the pick.

    That was my thought as to why the Cards may not happen. I wonder if the AFC could get on this years broadcast after we had the Bears last year. I could see Denver in that case.
     
  21. MG2

    Denver would sense. Could see that being a prime time game, too.

    I can't remember a draft I was less excited about. That ebron pick ruined me.

    Seems like CB, OL, DT and RB are the most likely positions we go in the first three rounds, so how would you rank your top five hopefuls at the different positions? Seems like there's nothing close to a consensus at any of them. I'd go:

    CB
    Trae Waynes
    Kevin Johnson
    Byron Jones*
    Eric Rowe
    Jalen Collins

    OL
    La'el Collins
    Brandon Scherff
    DJ Humphries
    Ereck Flowers
    Andrus Peat

    DT
    Malcom Brown
    Danny Shelton
    Eddie Goldman
    Grady Jarrett
    Carl Davis

    RB
    Todd Gurley
    Melvin Gordon
    Jay Ajayi
    TJ Yeldon
    Duke Johnson

    If we're ordering things in terms of positional need, I'd go OL, CB, DT, then RB.

    Packers and Bears are playing each other on Thanksgiving. I can't imagine them doing all four NFC North teams that day so maybe it will be a team like the Cards, Niners or Broncos.

    Birkett also seems to be insinuating that we should expect at least one more prime time game.

    That DEN/@SEA/ARZ stretch is brutal. I guess the rest of the schedule isn't overly daunting, but the placement of some of these games is rough.

    This Glover Quin presser sounds like it was amusing:

    Dave Birkett ‏@davebirkett
    Quin: If we play our best game and the Chargers play their best game, I feel like the Lions will win.

    Dave Birkett ‏@davebirkett
    Quin said "We're going to have some good momentum, we're going to be 2-0" going into Denver game, said Lions will win, head to Seattle 3-0

    Justin Rogers ‏@Justin_Rogers
    Quin now breaking down schedule game by game. Team is 3-0 after wins over San Diego, Minnesota and Denver. Stopped at trip to Seattle.

    Tim Twentyman ‏@ttwentyman
    Quin said after going through 1st quarter of schedule he sees #Lions going 3-0 heading to Seattle week 4 "Then we see how that plays out."

    Justin Rogers ‏@Justin_Rogers
    Quin now has the Lions 6-1, heading to London. Not sure why I find this hilarious. Now 7-1 at the bye.
