    Given the draft after that season, that was a massive win for the Lions. A lot because that season the Rams sucked, too- so we had two top 10 picks.

    With apologies to the NFL fans in Detroit and Houston, the Jets are the worst team in the NFL right now.

    Yes, technically speaking, the Lions have the worst record in the league at 0-8-1 with the Texans, losers of their last eight games, second-worst at 1-8.

    But the eye test will tell that even the woeful Lions and Texans are better than the 2-7 Jets.

    Massive side effect of that is many fewer teams that could take Belecheck. Pretty much down to Washington and Seattle, neither of which fit his theoretical criteria.

    But it's sure nice to see so many assistants get promoted over recycling old coaches, that's for sure.

    From what I've read, this puts the NCAA in a real pickle. Both investigations center on him, and nobody else. Assuming they are worth anything- ESPN still calls one the "sign stealing scandal" when it's actually in person scouting. So maybe that is pretty worthless anyway.

    Oh, well. I’m hoping we get Sharrone Moore.

    edit- and it was pretty inevitable. He's been fishing in the NFL pool for a while to match his brother with a Lombardi. So it's not that shocking. Add that to the NCAA issues. But we won quite a bit, and we managed to meet him after the hype died down (did you know his daughter in law is from Puerto Rico? We do, be he had no idea where.... he's a character)

    I would suspect that injuries allow to pick players up off of waivers.
    I guess it's because football has no minor league system so there's no place to go after the roster except FAs. It makes sense.

    Would have only 2 tight ends on the roster, otherwise. Mitchell had hand surgery and Wright broke his forearm Sunday.
    Shows how much I really pay attention to the team- I didn't realize the news about Mitchell was the same position. Hope he can block- that's mostly what Wright did.

    Huh. I just assumed there was a playoff roster limitation like MLB.

    I think because he was waived and thus not on any team he could do it; certainly no trades at this point; but yeah, I still assumed some basic overall roster freeze.
