    Well, Melanie Kiper is at it again… Their is no doubt the secondary is a weak spot for the Lions, but automatically assuming corner is the way to go in a draft 9 months away is stupid because the Lions go with the best player on their draft board and not what critics think. Widely assumed is the need for cornerback. However, Outside Linebacker, Left Tackle, and maybe Quarterback (If Stafford shows for the third year in a row that he can not stay healthy) will be in the mix. The Lions are much improved, but let’s wait and see how they do this year before so called “experts” begin to flap their gums on 2012 team needs.

    Wow, two Bills related pics in 3 days. Careful PFT, you may knock us out of the top-10 in “Teams that are hardest to support.” And to comment on a reply left on yesterdays One-Liners, yes Buffalo fans are Die-Hard. I always say, if we ever win it all, Hockey or Football, we would be the first City to riot after such accomplishment. Think “Bruce Almighty”… We Love our City, and our Teams!

    As a Patriots fan- it doesnt suprise me that Brandon Meriweather isnt paying attention to the lockout. After all he doesnt pay attention on how to tackle correctly and how to run at the correct angle to catch up to someone…just sayin’
