    Alright Loyal Lions fans...

    Let's get excited.

    Martz and Marrinelli think the offense could be "very special".

    Yeah.

    They want to keep Harrington.

    Martz says he remembers the Joey Harrington who went 25-3 as a starter in college and was a Heisman finalist...

    Oh Yeah...

    Let's get excited again so we can have our hearts ripped out on national television.

    Anyway... here's the article.

    Until Joel can complete 95% of his passes to KJ, out of the back field, I'll be worried there isn't enough "shine " in the whole world to get that done.
    ...These guys speak of our talent like it's very good. I question that. Kalimba aint that great. I'd put Kalimba over the center and let him run between the tackles.

    Once they learn the real priority is in the offensive line there won't be any excitment here.

    I am naively optimistic here.

    Lions are going to the Superbowl in 2 years...

    Okay, I'm not that naive.

    I do have hopes of a winning season, and maybe even a playoff birth.

    I am one of the few people (beside Micro) who are willing to admit that I think Joey has a shot at being a good QB if put in the right offensive system... and I really don't think West Coast is it.

    I'm off the JH bandwagon.

    I am optimistic however. Bring in a real QB, and lets see what happens.

    Now let me get this straight. This is now your signature, and you were offended by my pale, wan, mild, innocent, inoffensive allusion to Maxiel, while referring to the point guard problem? You must not have had as much fun as you anticipated in ordering your pizza. Your sense of outrage needs fine tuning.:rolleyes:

    Yes, let's get excited. I can finally say with Detroiters of bygone years:

    :flame:Speramus meliora. :flame:Resurget cineribus! :flame:

    You are correct, that is now my signature. Mike VanTasselhoffen wanted a royalty on the last one, and my budget was spent (on pizza, which you cleverly deduced, did not fill the empty space in my soul).

    Best line out of Hatter this year. I will laugh TOO hard if Miami and Orlando play, with a Doleac to Milicic match substitution.

    Oh, and uhm... GO LIONS!

    Yeah, and Friedrich wanted royalties from Van Tasselhoffen. By the way Mike sounds like some guy hoping for a prize from some twirling mammary artist at some burlyque.

    Oh, and uhm... Lions make the playoffs. I'd bet a Millen bucks on it.

    Loosely: We hope for better things, It will arise from the Ashes.

    It's the official motto of the City of Detroit. Coined by Father Gabriel Richard who came here from France to head the Church. When he arrived in 1798 Detroit had just suffered a massive fire and pretty much burned to the ground.

    True in 1798 and true in 2006.

    Not sold on Joey and now it looks like they may waste another year figuring out he's not the guy. Need a new QB, plain and simple.
