  1. “The Falcons have signed undrafted free agent DLs Trey Bryant and Rajon Henley.”
    Instead of young camp body DLs who are iffy to even make the practice squad I recommend picking up John Henderson. He’d cost a lot more money but he could start and play the first two downs come the regular season. When you see a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow you steal it before the effing leprechaun comes back. Pregame head slapping will be nice too.

  2. “The Lions fans still have a lot of animosity toward former G.M. Matt Millen”
    No friggin’ kidding!!!! I wonder why? Unbelievable that after just 2 years of that moron being gone, our entire team has changed and, for the first time since he came to Detroit, we’re making good decisions and moving into being competitive again.
