Jay Cutler should be a Lion after the NFL Draft Day

Personally, I hate the way the lions do business in the NFL. I believe that they are the worst run organization from the ground up. They chew through coaches and QB’s faster than any other team in the NFL. They were even would dumb enough to act as if Kitna was a franchise QB. I am not a coach and even I knew that wouldn’t work out. Since, the Lions destroyed their relationship with Barry Sanders, they have just made big mistake after big mistake in the NFL Draft. Just thinking that they picked Joey Harrington than Charles Rogers in the very next year with the 2nd overall selection makes me sick to my stomach. They have concentrated too much on skill positions in that last decade of drafts but they have never addressed their needs at QB properly.

Yep thats the life of a Lions fan

The Lions need a overhaul on the offensive line, yet, this season, the draft will be deep with OL’s. Therefore, there is more potential to get a great O-lineman later in the draft. Understanding that fact, they can try to land Cutler, by trading down the 1st overall selection with the Broncos. They will still be able to land a great OT in the 12th pick selection. If they don’t trade down and just trade the pick for Cutler with no other considerations the lions would still have a 20th pick in the first round, to address whatever other concerns they wish to fix through the draft. If the Lions don’t lock up Cutler by trading picks, they are just plain dumb in my eyes, because Cutler is a “Known” Franchise QB that you can build your team on. He is the real deal and has the experience to prove it. Can you say that about any other QB in the draft? No. Sanchez has a lot of upside and Stafford is really not battle tested, at least in the NFL. Jay Cutler could fill this role immediately, and the Lions could get him by trading down or trading the pick entirely.

Jay Cutler could be a big answer for the Lions problems

Take the sure thing and go with Cutler seems pretty simple to me, so don’t screw this up, Lions management!!

Jerry Jones Dooms Dallas Cowboys Future

Roy Williams WR Cowboys

Roy Williams WR Cowboys

Jerry Jones does it again. Today he made a move to acquire all the Roy Williams in the final hours before the NFL trade deadline. Jerry now has A DB and a WR who share the same name. Yuppie!!! Sorry Jerry, this move is just flat out stupid. This is the type of trade where he will either look like a genius or look like a retard. We are pulling for retard. Sportsroids believes that the move won’t help him in win this year and is going to destroy his team in the future. Yes you’re getting a top talent wide-out. Yes he is better than Crayton or Austin. But why would you give up a 1st,3rd and 6th round picks for this guy? Not to mention now he has to learn a new playbook and system. Seriously Jerry what were you thinking? I bet it was something like this, “Ok, we just lost Pacman Jones, and Terrance Newman has been hurt, and our biggest issue is that our defensive backfield is in disarray. Oh wait I know! Lets get a new pre-madonna wide receiver, that will fix it!”.My question is, “How can better the team next year if you have only a 2nd round pick? I can’t wait to see T.O. loose his mind because of Roy Williams, I can’t wait to see it. Obvoiusly Jerry Jones thinks T.O. might fly the coup pretty soon if he is doing this. If Owen’s catches decrease and they loose its going to be WW3 in Dallas. On second thought, maybe the move was to scare T.O. into not exploding, but I doubt it. I love T.O. and all he wants is to win, and its his competitive nature is what makes him good. Jerry, don’t try to step on that. You’ll loose that battle Jerry. Hey don’t you think Jerry is starting to look a little like Al Davis. Maybe he should just slow down, and realize that he already has enough star power to get people talking about the cowboys and learn how and where to buy the right pieces to make his organization unstoppable. Roy Williams is a WR with great potential yet he has much to prove. Roy has only posted one 1000+ yard season in his 5 year career. Seriously 1st, 3rd and 6th round picks!!! Oh yeah they resigned Roy to a new contract as well. Its a 5 year contract!! Jerry your nuts!

How’ bout those cowboys? Personally, I think they are all bark no bite!

HEY JERRY !!! SPORTSROIDS has something to say to you…..

Dallas Cowboys Owner, Jerry Jones

Bad moves = Bad News Jerry! You just doomed your team’s future.

Fantasy QBS: Who to start, Big Ben or Rodgers?

September 12, 2008 by sportsroids · Leave a Comment 

By Alex V

Letís look at the both of these QBs in retrospect. Big Ben Roethlisberger and Aaron Rodgers on Sunday, and Monday, respectively, both showed that they can pass, and run if necessary. They didnít just merely pass, but they hit their receivers with good accuracy on a consistent basis. Aside from throwing the ball; they both display a knack for knowing when to leave the pocket and make a play with their feet, whether theyíre scrambling results in a throw, or a rushing gain of their own.

This weekend, Big Ben amassed a mere 137 passing yards, but he got to that number going 13 of 14 with the one incompletion coming on an out-of-pocket sideline throw to avoid pressure. On two occasions, with no good looks downfield or in the intermediate passing lanes, Ben took off for a total of 17 yards (8.5 yards per carry). Aaron Rodgers was equally accurate going 18 for 22 passing, but he also tucked and ran with the football a total of eight times for 35 yards (4.4 yards per carry). In the end, Roethlisberger finished with two TD tosses and a 93% completion percentage, and Rodgers ended the night with an 82% completion percentage, one TD pass and

one rushing TD.

With numbers like these, both quarterbacks proved that efficiency can be deadly, even if they didnít accomplish 200+ passing yards in their games. Some of the most effective quarterbacks are those that allow the game to come to them without forcing the issue. If a quarterback keeps to his mechanics at the outset of each play, and lets his natural ability come second, the law of averages is going to have to allow a big-play opportunity to develop here and there, just as much as the law of averages will tend to allow a smart, short-yardage pass or chance for a decent gainer on ground to develop.

With that being said, this weekend I would start Aaron Rodgers since heís going against a weak defense in the Detroit lions. The Vikings have been constantly hyped up as a potential stout, havoc-wreaking defense for the 2008 NFL season, and Aaron Rodgers obviously didnít think so. As for Big Ben, he too could have a big night, but I see some potential troubled waters as the Browns could end up having a big day defensively after their practical no-show against Dallas this past Sunday. Add that to the fact that theyíre on live television this Sunday night at home, I would have to plead that Rodgers is the safest bet.

Real Men Eat Leather They Dont Wear it

Rudi Johnson & Tatum Bell and the case of the missing underwear

Tatum make sure you don't take the football or my underwear.

Tatum Bell was recently released from the Detroit Lions to make room for aging superstar Rudi Johnson on Monday. Bell was sent home, but apparently before he left he took Rudi Johnson’s Gucci luggage with him. This whole debacle was even caught on security camera. The red handed Tatum Bell wrote off the fiasco as a simple mistake. Who knows what to believe? Bell must have been salty about losing his roster spot. We’re willing to bet Tatum doesn’t even own Gucci bags!

Rudi Johnson told reporters, “I got the bags back – empty,”. He then explained: “he’s got a bunch of my underclothes. What he’s going to do with that, I don’t know. He’s got some socks and boxers.”
Understandably, Rudi was not elated with the event. The guy you replace steals your Designer Gucci bags…

Well ,if it were up to me, football players wouldn’t have or use Gucci bag’s (a.k.a. man purse). They would carry their clothing in a burlap sack as the way I envision the players of yesterday may have. Possibly stow their gear in token helmets from bested opposing teams. I mean really, could you see Jack Lambert or Dick Butkus strolling into the locker room with Gucci luggage?

Take a look for yourself:

Dick Butkus would never have had a Gucci bag just look at him.

Jack Lambert would have probobly eating you alive if he saw you with Gucci luggage in the Steel Curtain's locker room

Jack Lambert would have probably eating you alive if he saw you with Gucci luggage in the Steel Curtain's locker room.

I just can not see these men using or being around those you use Gucci or other designer’s bags. Sure, they may have chewed down some leather in their day, but we’re willing to bet these sports icons wouldn’t get caught dead with Designer Man Purses.
