Looking forward to seeing the most hyped up Lions rookie since Barry Sanders and i hope and pray he doesn't end up like Mike Williams and Charles Rogers.



btw great to have football back cause i'm sick of all the 24/7 baseball talk.

CJ is probably most hyped WR since the entrance of Moss. All those months after NFL draft made me crazy, so i am watching on preseason games like it's Superbowl.p

16-10 Bengals @ HT

Game is blacked out locally but not missing much besides CJ getting a 1st down catch and a TD pass by the 3rd string QB to some unknown guy.

J. O'Sullivan 7/13 167 1 1
S. McDonald 3 113 1

Shaun McDonald, 83 Yd pass from J.T. O`Sullivan (Jason Hanson kick is good), 6:30. Drive: 1 play, 83 yards in 0:18.
Two players that will probably get not playing time in a real game.



btw CJ finished the night with 2 catches and 45 yards.

McDonad could see some playing time next season. Marts has said that Lions will use 4 WR set this season.

Yes and we still can't run the ball much so we will pass 90% of the time. :notlist:

Preseason week 3 coming up. Saints are joy to watch, starters will probably stay on field for entire first half. To be honest i am not able to watch that game, i'll be following it on NFL.comp

Breaking down three options to fix the system
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200....html?bcnn=yes


1. Eliminate preseason games entirely and play an 18-game schedule. Zero chance. Too many football people want the games as a means of weed-whacking the rosters down to 53. "If you had no preseason, it'd be Raggedy Andy football the first week or two,'' Indy president Bill Polian told me.


2. Cut the preseason back to three games, and add a 17th regular-season game. This is the option that clearly has the best chance of happening, at least in the next couple of years. It's the one Goodell said last spring the league would consider, and he has been reiterating in internal league circles that he's serious about investigating this option. Goodell would investigate pairing a 17th game with playing up to four international games per season, so the NFL could stay current with the NBA and Major League baseball, both of which are playing overseas regularly now.


3. Play two preseason games, and expand the schedule to 18 games. Eventually, 15 years down the road, this is the next step. It is not the first step. The 17-game sked is the first step. Ask me about this one for a Monday Morning Quarterback in 2022.



I like option #2 the most, but its clear something has to change.
