Now they have to cut 8 million in salary... I just don't get how the cap works in the NFL...


I believe all they have to do is restructure some contracts into bonus money so they can get under. Not 100% on this though.

Oakland is still $15.25 mil over even after losing Nnamdi. Apparently they still have to pay his remaining contract since they opted out on him.

Fantastic, just heard Mikel Leshoure is out for the season. What is with the Lions picking up all these players who are so injury prone.

Just hope Fairley isn't gone too long.

Hopefully this injury doesn't affect his running ability in the future.

The Lions have signed free agent RBs Mike Bell and Jerome Harrison.

solid signings, with LeShoure out and Morris with a broken hand, these two guys can spell Best for a few plays.

I would rather just go with the same RB from last year.

Also, now there are tampering charges... Doesn't it just seem like the Lions are the biggest disaster franchise of all time. Things are looking up and then there are just a wave of set backs.


They should still be better than last year, but it just seems like this is all getting set up for a big fall.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

This thread has been closed due to emotions being higher than people's ability to read, interpret, and properly respond to simple posts.

Are you serious?

Also, I doubt anything happens with those "tampering" charges. I'd actually probably laugh if the Lions get penalized, that's how dumb I think the whole thing is.

Alrighty, games start tonight, so give me an over/under for wins this season. The Lions win 9 games this year.

All depends on Stafford's health. If he's healthy I think around 11 wins. If he gets hurt again, and the way players have been injured more frequently due to lack of camp and practice because of the lockout, we could be looking at another 6-7 win season again.

The injuries seemed to be happening more to rookies though so hopefully the vets are ok since I think they'd be more prepared.

Watched it a bar with a lot of Browns fans while at the same time watching the Tigers-Indians game. Pretty sure I was not well liked.

Got All-you-can-eat tickets for the Lions' home opener against KC. I haven't been to a game at Ford Field yet, so this should be a good afternoon on Sept 18.

I cannot wait for this season to start. There's reason to believe Detroit has an NFL team again.

I'm just ready for games that count. I need to see that this is for real. That there is legitimacy behind this hype.

As a Michigan fan I love what Brady has done since leaving UM.

As a Lions fan I loved seeing him looking befuddled on the sidelines after our Dline rattled his cage a few times.

Suh is a legitimate game changer. It's hard to be a qb when your standing on the tracks wondering when the trains going to hit.

Found a funny quote regarding the fans and media bitching and moaning about Suh being a dirty player:
