    I liked him as well, however, I just find it amazing that he was still not picked up this late in the season, especially with all the injuries this year.


    Might be a good indicator that he doesn't have all the tools to play at the level needed in the NFL, or at least to make the starting roster someplace.

    Possibly....but could also mean we can't spot future tallent as well as Detroit too....The Lions do seem to making some positive strides with there team this season.


    This is not spotting talent. The Lions signing Greg Blue is filling a void made by injuries. If this was them spotting talent, they would have signed him right away.
    I agree.

    Certainly there was no doubt that the guy could hit once in awhile, but I'm sure the coaches evaluated him fairly & deemed him not good enought to fit into our system.

    Yes, he did have the big hit a year or two ago, but that's the way some fans here are. They watch one big play a guy has, latch onto him & delare him a beast & starter material. I don't mean to sound rude, but that's what I see here on occassion.

    How many were high on Blue before that one hit?

    How many were high on Jason Carter before that one TD catch in pre-season?

    How many were high on Dovonte Edwards before he intercepted that pass from Favre & took it to the house?

    It takes more than one good play to declare a player great or a beast. You need to see consistancy from game to game.

    That's what I thought.

    LOL, I have to admit I was only high on Carter after that big catch myself.

    I've been watching him play since college. He made non stop big hits for Georgia. The hit he put on the Bills receiver last year wasn't even close to some of the ones he had in years past. I don't think he would be any worse off on the field than Dwight Smith. Sharper and Blue would have been a mean combo. I was never excited to see Jason Carter by the way.
