Hurney's made some bone headed moves but I give him a bit of a pass on everything before 2010. I am annoyed with him over the Armanti trade, but he did pull the trigger on Cam which was a good idea.
and yes iamhubby I agree about a WR at the top of the draft. Frankly I think with Gettis returning, we aren't as desperate at WR as we thought we were last year. But we could use some protection from Cam, and we also need DT, OLB, and CB... so we'll see where we are and who ends up being available in the first and second round to fill those needs.
See, the difference is, I do not believe Hurney has much to do with personell. He is a salary cap guy. His name gets thrown out there with the drafts, but he is not the draft guy. That is the scouting dept. and the head coach.
I am on record as stating we need 5 personell changes. 1 O-line (kalil), 1 LB, 1 RG(Otah,or Bell, as of now.) 1 FS, and 1 DT. Just to be competitive. Truthfully, we need an influx of talent to be elite. And unfortunately, that takes a couple of years. If we count this year, we are only a year or two away from being elite. Unless, as predicted, there are some FAs that would be willing to play with Cam at a reduced price. You know, some vets that have gotten their money, but have not yet won.
After 17 years of mediorcrity, I can wait a year or two. (Hey, I have been a Lions fan for almost 40 years. If I can handle that, I can wait a couple years for the Panthers to be elite.)
Truthfully, even as a life long Lions fan. My giddy was excited as all get out when we were up 24-7. And I thought that maybe we were on our way. But, no. Not today, but maybe next week. Or the week after. Cuz we are definately on our way.
Giddy for me, giddy for you. And GOOOOO CATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
