Reports are that the Lions will release Safety Louis Delmas. Any interest if price isn't too high?
If he is healthy he might be a bargain. That is probably our only hope is to find a bargain deal and get lucky.
I would take a chance on him.
not a RKG.
Loved him coming out of the draft, but problematic knees. Ask a Lions fan and they'll tell you that he spent more time on the trainer's table then on the practice field.
Can't see him getting a big deal at this point, but if the price is super cheap...
I think church is a better SS.
I heard his knees are shot
Nope. Not interested in released players that have issues. Build by drafting good players, good UDFA and players that are between 25-28 years old that are free agents without health or off the field issues. This team needs a young QB, young FS, a better slot CB. We also need a running back that doesn't drag his feet behind the line of scrimmage (Murray) and often get little or no yards. So sorry for high jacking the post, but naw, I'll pass on this guy. Now if a released GM that knows what he's doing is found, sign me out as very interested. <sarcasm off>
Less RKG's, please.
If the guy has chronic knee issues, regardless of the price, it's not worth it.
I'm beginning to wonder if some of you guys really know what an "RKG" truly is.
You should by now...
But it seems like you don't.
Should I go ahead and illuminate you, or are you being ignorant on purpose?
If you agree on the former- I'll use short words with minimal syllables.
If it's the latter- Thank Gawd, I enjoy people who consciously attempt poor comedy.
It makes people in my profession feel better about themselves.
Definitely would take a chance on him for the right price.. would bring some toughness and veteran leadership to the safety group
The guy has only finished 1/5 seasons in the NFL. No thanks.
What do you mean? Sounds like he'd fit right in.
People confuse RKG with being Boy Scouts. I always took it as guys who love the game. Most assume that everyone in the NFL loves the game, but that is not true. Some love the money, some the fame, but guys that put the team first, put the work in and buy into the program are the Right Kind of Guys to target. Seattle seems to have figured it out and those guys are not all choir boys.
To me guys like Romo, Witten, Ware, Lee, Church, Murray, Dez, TFred and TSmith fit the bill. A few more and this team can be really solid.
If he's healthy, comes at bargain basement, why not… the worst that can happen is we cut him.
We have a lot of young FS. It takes time to develop these players when they are gone. We have one of the best slot cbs in the new and Murray had one of the highest ypc last year. His only knock has been health. I really hope your positions of need were a joke.
Only as camp fodder and at a bargain basement price. If he produces then it's a win.
What coach or GM wouldn't like those guys?
But Red is more into the boy scout type I think. And he doesn't know how to blend in the different types. That's the problem. Every coach would love to have hard working, talented guys that love to play the game. Reality is that those types of players are hard to come by. What Red needs to learn is how to control a mixed locker room. Guys that are ballers but have issues, guys that hate to practice, guys all about the money. The key is to find talent. A good coach is able to push the right buttons to get them to play on Sundays. Even if that means having a headache with them Mon-Sat.
And that's why the leadership thing is so important, player leadership that is. Takes some of the pressure off of the coach. A vocal guy with skins on the wall that knows how to lead. That guy builds up a following, hopefully most of the locker room. They can then push the guys with issues, make sure they do their part. The players hold the other players accountable.
I don't think we have either. Our coach doesn't know how or doesn't want to try to deal with the different types of personalities and we have no one on the team who will get into someones face and tell them they aren't doing their job.
