    Not a chance this happens sorry dude. We have so much money tied into Bulger, then drafting Stafford we would have to tie a ton of money into him being the #2 pick.

    Too much money.

    I want the pick to be Curry, J.Smith, or Crabtree

    Your three picks are all quality guys. Up till yesterday I was hoping for Crabtree but now Curry looks to be a very interesting choice. Thanks..

    No problem, and I was a HUGE Pro-Crabtree person as well, however after this injury I am not so confident on us drafting him and Curry wasn't really on my radar until after this phenominal combine showing. But I still honestly wouldn't mind us drafting MC Hammer from TTech

    Re: If Detroit passes on Stafford?

    Everything I see on Crabtree consists of his physical play and not so much his speed. The thing that concerns me most is he's only 6'1". Physical receivers sould be taller in my book. What do you think?

    agreed...i wanted him because i thought he would be a Fitz-esque playmaker 6-3 and a physical reciever but after being 2 inches shorter then what i originally thought, that also made me second guess the Crabtree pick even more which upsets me because I wanted him

    Thumbs up Re: If Detroit passes on Stafford?

    I can't see us pulling the trigger on a QB in the first, for the above stated ($$$) reasons.

    Make mine J. Smith/Curry/Monroe/Crabtree


    Welcome aboard, new myself (to posting, long-time lurker)

    Welcome, jrf. I think you can remove the word "if" from your statement. At this point I do not see the Lions going for Stafford or any QB for that matter. This draft is fast becoming a 2 man contest between Jason Smith and Aaron Curry. I see Detroit taking one of those two and then the Rams will select the other.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Stafford IMO was a system QB. I don't think he is going to make it at the pro level. I have the same opinion about Sanchez and his 16 starts.

    Re: If Detroit passes on Stafford?

    NO!!!!!!!!!!
    The have to many holes in the D-line and O-line to worry about a QB in the 1st round. I didn't even mention the LB & SS positions. Maybe both QB's (Stafford, Sanchez) fall in the Draft. Sanchez hurt himself by having a bad showing at combine. I still like QB T. Brandstater in the 5th. A big kid with big arm from a prostyle offence (Fresno St.).

    Re: If Detroit passes on Stafford?

    To paraphrase Tony the "Mimbo" from Seinfeld, I don't get no ruuuuuush from Stafford. Seems to me that he is a Top 5 pick because of his reputation and the fact that this is a QB weak draft. His performance at Georgia did not impress me.
