NFL  > Detroit Lions  > Lions offseason plans!!!
January 5, 2009, 02:47 AM
I know everyone wants to start off by drafting a QB. Normally I would agree but here is another solution because Kitna is not a bad QB, he just had NO protection what so ever!!! but if you had to replace him id go with either DA or maybe look into Cassel. But Cassel im still shakey about because we dont know what he will do when he is not surrounded with the talent he had in New England. Use both 1st round picks on top rated O-Linemen (this year is stacked at the position) and make them count. Now with 3 - 1st round linemen (counting last year's) to protect Kitna and make holes for Smith, a good (but not great) QB, a really good young RB, and a top flight WR, pick up a good young WR in round 2, and the "O" should be good to go. Look into getting FA players like Haynesworth, Vilma (i doubt the Saints will give up a 1st rd pick to keep him), Lito Shepard and possibly Nnamdi Asomugha to help shore up the "D" side of the ball. As far as who to coach these rogues... how about Spagnuolo?? I think he could give them the right kick in the **** that they need. Remember, last year, they started off on a run for a possible 10 win season that fell apart the 2nd half of the season. Kitna going down and HORRIBLE QB play, was a big part in why they went winless this season. And Miami almost went 0-16 last year and look how they turned out this year.
