    Lions to take CJ?

    http://www.nfl.com/draft/features/blog

    The Detroit Lions organization met Friday and concluded that, unless a blockbuster trade offer comes their way, they will draft Georgia Tech wide receiver Calvin Johnson.

    Many will deduce that this decision is a matter of posturing, but the organization insisted it wasn't. Nor did it sound like it. Detroit has decided that if Oakland goes with LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell, as many expect, it has no choice but to draft the next best player on its board, Johnson.

    Lions offensive coordinator Mike Martz was one of the key cogs in the decision, getting the rest of the organization excited about the way he would use Johnson. It should be enough to scare other teams in the NFC North.

    But the Lions made it very clear Friday night that their past failures at wide receiver will not deter them from revisiting the position.

    Not sure if anyone posted this or not. I looked but didn't see anything.....if so, lock it up

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    Yeah, I here ya.
    I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see them make a move on CJ.
    I'm also not so sure it's not the right move for them.

    i know, it's scary.
    calvin johnson, roy williams, and mike furrey.
    even with john kitna they are gonna move the ball.
    not to mention they've added tatem bell, g.foster, e.mutalio.
    i mean look at how they've revamped their offense in basically 2 offseasons.
    though it is quite surprising that they won't address qb again.
    i bet they try in the early 2nd.

    At 7:30 this morning, we left the hotel for an appearance on Good Morning America. The players were asked to throw a football through a tire on the set. The first person to successfully make the throw: ABC's Robin Roberts.
    Heck with all these guys, I'd draft Robin
    ;D


    Russell won the "bling" award. He had a massive silver watch, a big silver ring, and silver trim on sides of his black sunglasses.
    Quinn wore none in most interviews I saw.

    Adams' mom and dad recently adopted two-year-old twins -- Stanley and Jasmine -- and it was really heartwarming to watch Gaines interact with them in the hotel lobby.
    Nothing but class act with this family.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Damn felines! It's alright though...I have a feeling CJ will bust just because it's the Lions!
    Because I'm a Vikings fan, they are that much sexier.
