    Could former Saints practice-squad player be the next Jeremy Lin?

    UPDATE: The first regular season touchdown of the Detroit Lions 2012 season was scored by none other then #35, Joquie Bell ... .

    Breaking Bad Trend 2012 New Orleans Saints

    I agree with you on all points about shanle. I've never understood the hatred towards him. He's been one of the most durable and dependable (yeah I said it) players on the roster year after year. I do wish someone younger and more athletic would step up, but if they can't beat him out then so be it.

    On another note, I read on NFL.com that tennant was released by the patriots. Wonder what the deal is with that guy.

    Should you draft a Detroit Lion for your fantasy team?

    UDATE: (on the defense)

    It was brought to my attention that the Lions defense led the league last season in pick-sixes with 5 and something about doing well in the 'turnovers gained by defense' & 'QB sacks' departments and that they were actually a pretty good fantasy pick ... IDK, I admittedly don't fully understand the whole fantasy-football concept, but if that's all they're going to rate the defense by, maybe they're worth a look for your defense, but you'll probably have to pick up a different defense for the playoffs, eh? ... IDK, it's still living dangerously if you ask me ... they make a lot of mental mistakes.

    Ok, well you've accomplished something no Detroit fan has been able to do these past few seasons and that's to get me to reconsider my view of Kevin Smith and maybe cut him some slack ... that's "maybe", I'm still in the "reconsidering" phase, .

    And that's the key with Kevin Smith, staying healthy, but even then, he's not going to put up big numbers ... in part of course, because the Lions are a 'pass-first' offense and in part because he's just not that talented a runner. I'd take him as a bench player and start him against the teams like Carolina (last season) that were weak defending the run & where the Lions obviously would attempt to exploit that ... but for the most part, I see Detroit trying to get the running game going by giving him the ball a lot before realizing he just ain't gonna' get it done and going to the pass.

    I'd be interested in hearing from people who have had Kevin Smith on their FF teams in the past and how it worked out for them, good or bad.

    The key there I think is Johnson ... Stafford would have decent numbers either way, but throwing to Calvin is like having the winning 'multiplier' in the Mega Millions ... it just increases your winnings. Johnson has been around the league a few seasons and teams have had time to work up a way to stop him ... you can't, you can only, hopefully, minimize the damage he's going to do.

    Picking from the Lions roster for your FF team is not for the faint of heart, but there are a few gems there ... give Pettigrew, Scheffler & Hanson a good look and don't rule out Burleson, Young & Broyles ... Detroit is going to come out throwing once again this season. Running back is a crapshoot, I'm hoping Joquie Bell is able to help & the 'Leshoure expirement' pans out, but I wouldn't touch a Detroit RB if I was drafting for FF.

    Some TIN FOIL HAT Thoughts On The Whole Crazy Bounty/WiretappingThing

    rugby i must respectfully disagree with you. green bay has cheese. come on who doesnt like cheese? even lactose intolerant people try to sneak cheese into their diets.

    as far as the main article is concerned i have only one comment. just because you are paranoid does not mean people are not out to get you.

    Conspiracy? Prove us wrong, NFL.

    even if some of the saints players had admitted to a bounty program, so what, thats no proof one existed. what if someone wrote down how the team selected who they were placing a bounty on and how much they were worth? thats still no proof of a bounty. how can that not be proof you might ask. beats the hell out of me, but maybe we should ask the NFL that question because that was the case with the washington redskins. there were 6 players and 2 coach who admitted that under williams they had a bounty program. furthermore one of the former players wrote an article for the chicago tribune detailing how their bounty worked. here is link) Matt Bowen: Bounties are part of the NFL - chicagotribune.com
    yet the nfl just completed its investigation of the redskins and the bills and has cleared both of them because there was no evidence of a bounty program.
    i cant begin to explain how confused i am by all of this. on one hand you have the saints who vehemently deny ever running such a program but the NFL say they have enough evidence to warrant the harshest penalties ever issued by the league. and on the other you have the skins who have 7 people who admit to a bounty program, one who even detailed it in writing for one of the largest news papers in the country but the NFL says there is no evidence. have i slipped through a black hole into bizarro world?
