We need some good players...Pretty simple...Rookies dont get it done. You need core players and then have to build around them with a commitment to winning, not just putting fans in the stands and making a buck. Ford needs to get his wallet out and get the right people in place....Whole damn team needs to be overhauled from ownership to coaches to players IMO...QUITE SAD! :mad:

Better hold on to Calvin though. Kevin Smith could be a decent RB in the future.

New coaches are in order.

Im a Pats fan but Im always pulling for the underdog. I would
love to see Detroit have a great season. Im a die hard Red Sox
fan to but I would love to see the Cubs win a series. Detroit
has to do something, its a shame.

I agree, theres a few guys they should hold onto, but for the most part there are allot of changes that need to be made. Year after year they continue to lose and this year the downward spiral has gotten even worse....Bums me out. Itd be nice to have a decent team for a change instead of the laughing stock of the NFL....Ford should take a look at Mike Illitch who owns both the Tigers and Red Wings. Talk about a a guy who puts people in place to make things happen. Boy has he turned both those teams around since he's owned them.

Well, they finally did it...0-16. But at least they played a pretty decent game. Too bad they couldnt keep their heads in a couple key situations which lead to some pretty costly penalties....Well, the seasons over, time to rebuild...Ford....the balls in your court!

It was alot closer than what I thought it was going to be. Ford
needs to do something for Detroit. I never see the Lions just
give up, they always hang in there, but they need help. Its
been like this since Sanders. Imagine if Barry had a team behind
him? Its sad to see.
