    Re: Lets Face It where not getting Calvin Johnson

    Whole team is young...no real stars...trying to build the team through no-names?
    You'd better think again my friend.
    As I recall last year we were BIG in the FA market taking in a few stars. As I see it we are a good wide receiver or two, a good tight end, and a good defensive pass rush end away from being a great team.

    so wouldnt you think we'd be a little more aggressive going after one or more of those positions to boost us up to a great team. . .
    i think thats what everyones frustration is. . .
    since we do have a good core group of players and are only a few players away, it is frustrating to see us pass up on some of those guys that will get us to the next echelon of contenders

    Thing is though...this is a weak crop of FAs...everybody knows this.
    So the Front Office doesn't see the need to break the bank on guys who they don't feel fit with the mold of the TEAM they're trying to build.

    i dont know why the skins come up everytime we talk about bringing in bodies.
    i dont think anybody is saying spend 50 million on randle el, but to do nothing doesn't exactly excite anyone.
    especially when we saw the product on the field last year.
    as of now this young core has no competition, they are being handed the starting jobs.
    and what's the saying, contentment breeds laziness or something like that.
    who is williamson and mcmullen competing with, who is cook and johnson competeing with.
    obviously they are gonna bring in somebody cuz the roster isn't full, but is it ok to bring in bodies that have proven they can play in the nfl so williamson and others can win their jobs instead of handing it to them.
    LET THAT WHICH DOES NOT MATTER, TRULY SLIDE
