the lions main struggles are obvious
1. cannot stop the pass because their pass d is horrific (yet to be addressed)
2. when they need the tough yards to get the first down on 3rd and short they dont have a back that can do that (bush can)
still a draft to go and am happy they took an o lineman instead of a guy like mercilus or upshaw in the first.
the two teams i look at with interest..dallas/ detroit..detroit hasnt gotten better yet, dallas has
I think Reiff was a good pick and, while he won't provide immediate help, he can be a long term answer at LT. Stafford isn't a 10 year vet and the Lions still have a year or two to grow.
They took Leshoure to be that guy to get them that one yard. Can't help injuries. However that weed thing isn't helping his cause. It's reminding me of Charles Rogers. My personal beliefs are that weed charges are irrelevant as far as personal use go. Unfortunately the NFL doesn't agree with my beliefs and he needs to adhere to the league standards for it.
You bring up some great points though.
