    Is a backup offensive lineman really worth the four hour security delays the Lions are now going to be subjected to at the airport?

    This is the signing we have been waiting for. Mark my words, 1-15 is the “lock of the century.”

    Loved him in Houston, he’s a good guy. Hope he gets some action in Detroit.

    He’s funny. That’s about all he has going for him.
    The turnstile is back! Watch out Stafford!

    Backus is the original turnstyle, this guy can’t be any worse and I hear he is pretty good on sports talk radio shows
