    Re: Lions release 5 including Mike Furrey & Dwight Smith

    It would suck to get cut from an 0-16 team.
    Ah mom, I made it in the NFL, but, I sucked so much that a team with 0 wins thought that I wasn't good enough to be on the team.

    Yeah this would definetly be a low point for both of them. Of course their highs were both pretty high. Smith returned 2 interceptions for td's in super bowl 37 and Furrey led the nfc in catches in with 98 during the 2006 season. Also Furrey is one of only a few players to start on both offense and defense. He also had 2 game winning interceptions, returning one for a TD.
    I bet there mothers aren't too dissapointed.

    I wouldnt be dissapointed since ive made enough in my previous years playing to probably retire.

    I wonder if they will be invited back for the 0-16 banner raising

    Leigh Bodden was also released.... He didn't want to be there and they weren't gonna pay $8M to a guy that didn't want to be there....

    I guarantee you he lands on his feet, as well as Furrey will.....
    Doesn't mean these guys can't play!

    Imagine the hit to Smith's ego. First he isn't good enough for Childress and then the Lions cut him.

    Did Bodden get so many tackles because he was that good or because he doesn't cover?
    He played all right with Cleveland, but I didn't see much of either of the Vikings/Lions games, so I don't know how well he looked against the Vikings receivers.

    Furrey is a little guy, but he runs good routes.
    I would say better routes than Wade from what I have seen of both of them.
    He has had injury problems.

    Someone will sign Furrey, over pay for him and think that he will be the next wes welker. I hope its not us.
