    i really like the coach and the staff he has hired..... but aslong as we are stuck with our gm and owner i have no faith.... just enjoy when they win but to expect them to lose just is easier

    I still want to know (seriously) why KJ doesn't wear underwear.

    And Oz, I love your passion and faith. It's admirable.

    I thought Rogers was hurt. He's our only monster when healthy.

    Espn reports Millen will listen to trade offers for Shawn Rogers.
    We need at least a low 1st rounder for him. Assuming he passes a physical.

    The thing with getting picks for any of our players (especially for our most dominant defender - when he wants to be) is that Millen will just turn the pick(s) into another bust (most likely a WR).

    I'm almost glad that we have a lower pick this year.

    These guys gotta do their homework or we'll be stuck with loss of value. Fortunately most of the higher picks are well sloted. Just gotta pick the correct need.

    Shaun Rogers must be considered a big RISK for any team to make. We'll be lucky to get a 3rd rounder for him............

    One big trade that was talked about for the last year didn't happen. Vilma is reported now by several sources that he traded to the Saints. He passed the physical here, but the Jets do the trading and evidently the Saints ante'd up more than the Lions.

    Possiblility that we swap Marcus Stroud and Rogers. Sources tell me that in order for Rogers to be traded, we need a DT in the works or secure one beforehand.

    I have mixed emotions about Vilma. When healthy, I think he's a heck of a player and would have been a great fit at MLB for us, but the degenerative knee thing scares me a bit.

    Stroud is another one that is great when healthy, but hasn't been 100% healthy in years.

    There are reportedly at least 5 teams that are currently interested in Rogers from what I've heard. I hope we can get the most possible for him. Picks are wonderful in theory, except for the fact that Matt Millen will be the one that is using (wasting) them. We need NFL ready, professional, proven players on this team.

    Wow, that's a pretty sad haul for our best defensive player. A third and a freaking 5th?

    I find it hard to believe that with at least 5 teams interested in Rogers, that the best he could do was a 3rd and a 5th.

    Millen chocked, plain and simple. Had Rogers been on our roster as of tomorrow, he'd have been due a $1 million "roster bonus". Millen was more worried about saving that money than he was about getting quality back in return.
