  1. I always liked Hood. He has this uncanny knack (or so it seems) for just happening to be in the right place at the right time to make a play. Plays way better than his natural ability makes you think he could.

  2. He plays his best when the corner on the other side of him is crap, the best example of this is his 2007 season. He’d be good on the Lions.

  3. I really don’t want to see Hood leave Detroit after his visit. He needs to stay. Regardless of the Lion’s roster getting better so far…NFC North is getting, shall I say, “beastly”. All 4 teams had good drafts, Cutler is in the division, and more than likely Favre. I see NFC North being a very dominant division this fall.

  4. As an Eagles fan, I must say it was the Eagles loss that Hood signed with Arizona in FA a few years back. Not sure why they cut him. He would be a good pickup for the Lions.

  5. get him lions,,,,,, another huge signing if it happens.. def could win the nfc north… 6 wins won’t do it…. but this signing could focus more to the lines in the draft in 2010.. LB Solid… CB is solid with Hood would make the LIons concrete excet more the line? What do you think… do you agree?

  6. Hood would definitly help the Lion’s revamped secondary but it is still made up of other teams’ castaways. Anthony Henry, Philip Bucchannon and Rod Hood, while in improvement over Leigh Bodden and Travis Fisher (the worst corner in the league) are still not playmakers that scare you on the other side of the ball… I’m hoping he signs with them on Monday night

  7. Getting away from the Tampa 2 will have as much impact on the D as any player signing. I wish Bodden would have stayed, but he commanded like 7mill for the year. Regardless of taking on other team’s “castaways” this is a new system that is going to adapt to a player’s abilities. Plus with the new linebacking corp, that’s going to help every aspect of the secondary. If the line and linebackers stop the run, it’s going to make it that much easier for the DBs to play pass, and not have to worry about the RB.
