Paula....I love the Jones signing and think he'll fit perfectly into our offense with Tate BUT....really concerned Quinn has NOT done more to upgrade OT position.....and now add SS and Lber starters to the mix if Whitehead leaves......Quinn mentioned building depth but so far we've just added to the big needs....Letting ISA and Whitehead leave seems strange without replacements....I would also question the short term fix on the DL as yet again, we have signed Walker(unproven/injured) and Ngata (past his best) to short term deals...we need long term answers at both DT and OT positions.....still talent left in FA but market for OT and SS is getting thin and most options left are in their early 30's or injury concerns....Understand not overpaying but are you surprised that we havent been linked to more players? thanks

First time I've bothered to look in a while, but the gullibility of you and the hard cores remains absolutely pitiful. Despite another soft schedule, the Lions aren't going anywhere in 2016. The O-line is a mess. The D-line is retreads nobody else wants. Still no decent running back. Nor reliable tight end. Who in their entire linebacker corps or secondary could start for a contender? The always locally over-hyped Matthew Stafford has never been ranked higher than #15 in the NFL starting QB hierarchy. Now his go-to guy Calvin Johnson, with whom he racked up most of his pseudo gaudy passing stats, has taken a Barry Sanders style walk. If they catch a few breaks, the Lions might go 9-7. If not, maybe 6-10. But this still sorry franchise remains to the Super Bowl what a hang glider would be on an expedition to Mars. There are miracles, and then there is the impossible. Get real, Paula. It will be just another ho-hum year and, assuming you know better (here's hoping), should be ashamed of yourself for again raising the hopes of the Lions sappies. Egging them on is like making a puppy dog do tricks for a treat that was imaginary in the first place. As faithful, but basically dumb animals trying to please their master, they'll fall for the same cruel hoax over and over again. So for the sake of puppy dogs and Lions koolaiders, pretty much the same thing, how about you quit with the Pollyanna stuff and start telling it like it really is?
