denver has 12th pick overall. I doubt they want to give that up. Keep in mind that Cutler is only 26 years old too.

I would trade 1st pick in round 1 (1st overall) and 1st pick in round 2 (33rd overall) in exchange for Jay Cutler and denver's 2nd round pick (44th overall i think).

Denver would go for that I believe and the Lions can still use their other picks on d-line like they should.


2 1st round picks is gross overpayment for a guy that doesn't even want to play for the lions, even in a package deal that includes denver's 2nd round pick. expect other teams to lure away cutler and force detroit to start the season with dante, if cutler moves at all.

I agree that the first overall pick is gross overpayment for Cutler. The guy hasn't proven anything. Also, with the ongoing *****-fest in Denver, we could probably get him for cheaper than if everything were quiet.

I'd take him on my team, but I'm not sure he's worth the 1st overall pick.

"During Robert Lang’s time in Detroit, he caused me anguish. Other times he brought me and my family great joy. Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

I forgot they had the No. 12 pick so that wouldn't work. My best friend is a die hard Broncos fan so I think I've been getting the version of Jay Cutler with his blue/orange glasses on.

RE: logo redesign

HERE is the front runner endorsed by the detnews. this of course might not mean more than a hill of beans but it looks good.

for what it's worth, the aforementioned design by zelley placed 2nd.

both are an improvement to what we have now, without changing things too much.

will be interesting to see what comes of this. will be sure to report if i hear any official word before its released to the public.

Perhaps this is the new logo?

http://www.detnews.c... new Lions logo

For those too lazy to click a link.....or in case that one disappears - it's basically the old logo with detail added so the lion is no longer a simple silhouette:



Concept is a good one. Needs a few tweaks, though.

seems to make the most sense given information leading up to this story. i doubt we'll know anything more about this before april 1. it would be better to see the modified logo w/o the grey splash, to get a better feel what it would really look like. anyone want to photoshop that it post it here? or even better yet, photoshop w/o the grey on an actual lions colors football helmet. any takers?

I'm a graphic designer by day and I was given the task of fleshing out what appears to be the Lions' new logo using the toy truck as a basis:



Also in PDF format: http://letsgowings.c...OGO-remake1.pdf

This isn't official, of course, but I wouldn't expect the official one to deviate from this aside from some small adjustments that are lost because the original source artwork is so small.

At that size there's less Mufasa and more Scar to the new-look Bubbles.

Both ended up dead. Which is what will happen to the Lions in the end.

Wasn't that design from a movie?
I make 1 or 2 posts a week tops. Sometimes they're gold, sometimes they're crap, but the end weight is the same.

I've been thinking and I'm not sure what it is about the Lions that can be taken as evidence they aren't toes up already. Unless by "dead" you mean "packed up and moved to LA."

well done, matt... thanks. even if there are few changes forthcoming and the fact that its only a logo and not a heart transplant, its indicative of what i expect with the new staff and players... MORE FIGHT.

amen.

eh, there was actually a lot of fight in last year's team. I kind of wonder how much fight they'd have had in them if they'd gotten a win early on, but actually they never gave up on the season and you have to give them (and Marinelli) credit for that. What they lacked was any semblance of talent.

Apparently, Matthew Stafford has told his old teammates that he's gonna be the Lions' pick, and that he'll receive $40 million in guaranteed money.

Is that what the Lions or telling him, or his scumbag agent?

In any case, if the Lions do pick Stafford, I hope they play him right away. That way it'll take less time for them to realize Stafford is a bust and they can get busy finding another quarterback that much sooner.

^^^I never like judging your wins with the NFL just because a team can rise or fall so fast. Who knows, St. Louis could be this year's Miami, or Atlanta, and kill us. Or here's a better thought: Maybe Detroit is this year's Miami/Atlanta (-:

I'm thinking this year's Detroit will be a marginally better version of last year's Detroit.
