    Lions sign QB J.T. O'Sullivan

    [size=13pt]Lions snatch fourth QB[/size]

    O'Sullivan, co-MVP of NFL Europa season, is excited about offense, looks to impress Martz.

    Tim Twentyman / The Detroit News

    DETROIT -- Journeyman quarterback J.T. O'Sullivan, who shared the most valuable player award in NFL Europa this season, will have yet another chance to make an NFL roster...

    Re: Lions sign QB J.T. O'Sullivan

    First of all this just shows how overall weak NFL Europa is when a guy who can't even warm the bench in the REAL NFL is voted the most valuable in that league.

    Second, He was released by the Bears last week who have a horrible QB situation and then picked up by the Lions. I think that shows you just how weak the Kions are despite the Bravado of Kitna.

    Third, O'Sullivan has been on six squads or practice squads in six years. What makes anyone think he will be a good addition to their team?

    I don't know much about the guy, but it sure doesn't hurt his career that things seemed to come together for him in Europe.

    He's in the right situation in Detroit, with a fantastic offensive guru.
    I'll be watching this story.

    He is going to need that O-line to step up and give him some time.
    I doubt he'll see any playing time unless things get really ugly during the season.

    For some reason, this guy never seems to get a real shot anywhere.
    Everytime I've seen him play (pre-season), however, he usually does fairly well.
    In Detroit, aside from Kitna, nobody has any experience at QB.
    But I doubt the Lions would have 4 QB's riding their roster.
    If Kitna goes down, Detroits season ends even quicker than usual.

    If he beats either Kitna, Orlovsky or Stanton I'll be very much surprised

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.
