    This is a list of current NFL players most likely to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Check out #40.

    ESPN Page 2 - Page 2: NFL Hall of Fame

    The dude just signed an NFL contract today, yet he's the 40th most likely active player to make it to Canton? I REALLY hope that CJ is that good and not the fact that players 41 to 800 in the NFL are that bad.

    I also like the part about Roy Williams being "a solid possession receiver".

    Hopefully CJ will not be placed in the Hall next to Joey. We don't want Joey's bust getting near any of our new guys.

    I love all the optimists out there, and I believe a 9-7 record is on the "hoping for miracles" side of optimism...............

    Saw Roy Williams on PTI the other day. I was surprised to see that he wasn't a flake. Roy's got skills, just hope he is able to put CJ on the right page...............

    Over at the Detroit News Lions forum, most of the posters feel the Lions will win at least 7 games. Thats more than double what they accomplished last season. Every year the hope and hype. And then comes the letdown. Even the esteemed "Old Skool" has them doing well in his prognostication.

    Oh, I'm not really laughing at you. I'm still a Lions fan after all these years. I think a Super Bowl victory by the football team would mean a lot to Metro Detroit. Won't happen this year, of course, but the NFL is probably the easiest league to turn things around. The problem with that team has always been the ownership. Unfortunately, the owners ain't gonna give up their meal ticket as their auto bidness goes down the tubes.

    Just to be clear, I didn't take it as an insult or offended by you or any Lions fans that are sick of the losing. I just am going to be BELLOWING in the Bullhorn "I FRIGGIN TOLD YOU SO" to all the naysayers every chance I get!

    We're so deep in this garbage of a team that we've seen over the past few years that we're "hoping" for a 7-win season. I say 7 wins is still a crappy season, granted that it is better than a 3-win season, but just marginally. I sure hope this thing turns around, but I've been hoping for a long time and every time was let down. I don't like to go into the prognostications, especially with this team. But I will only believe the improvement when I see it. Until then this is all garbage.

    Zoo, keep a couple extra straight-jackets ready both Zark and Jamm.
    I sence they are both the type to go postal after a couple humiliating Lion losses.

    Why would there be any humiliating losses? I mean after all the losses we've had in the past few years, can there be any humiliation after all? Just take the wind.
