For the record: 7 of the last 15 first and second round picks were on the offensive and defensive lines. Granted, only three were o-line (Brown, Stinch and Bently) and of the four D-linemen (SMith, Grant, Sullivan and Howard) two were arguably busts. So there's an issue with spotting talent. But drafting 3 WR in the first two rounds and having only one still on the team still who is heading to the bench is Detroit-like.

Did anyone notice how much better our D was with Simmons and KK involved?

I kinda did notice. I wish KK would have finished that hit he put on Colbert (i think?) early in the game. He jarred the ball away but you could tell he let up.

I noticed Harper alot up at the LB positions...was it Harper?? I want to see some replays, but it looked like we didn't have as many linebackers as we did safeties roaming around. Indeed if Simoneau was out, that could be one of the reasons for the improvement.
