    Need to explain my optimism. First 10 games the lions lost by double digits. Since then the margin has been 2.5. Lions are loose this is a must win for the purple, they will be tight.

    Not full amputation, remove like (2) 1/2" and 3/4" bones.

    I just recall him stating he had a surgical option with the bye week.

    He put it off he said if it is a issue he could have surgery on a Monday or Tuesday and play on Sunday. Amazing the medical treatment you can get without a copay and waiting for an appointment and 24 hour PT treatment.

    Mathew Stafford has thrown more pick 6's this season than Aaron has in his entire career.

    I think the Stafford trade is coming back to bite them. Any decent QB could have went to the Rams amd started out on a high note. Just the same, any decent QB could have went to the Lions amd started out on a low note.

    I think the Rams woyld be in the same place regardless, Goff or not. They gambled on a SB this year and will likely lose.

    Anybody see the current draft top 10 pick order, 3 teams with 2 picks in the top 10.

    Horrible games all around tomorrow.

    Normally Steelers hosting Ravens would be game of the week, but not this year. Still expect a good game, Ben will probably throw it all out there and end his season.

    Broncos at Chiefs probably the game of the day with best game being Monday Night.

    Zimmer is an idiot, going it for 4th down didn't get it and they vikings are lucky that the Lions only got 3 points off it. That was a horrible football decision.

    Looks like Joe Burrow broke the pinky on his throwing hand. Crazy to think if the Steelers beat the Ravens somehow, they're right back in it.

    Maybe Ben will play inspired since he has accepted this is his final 6 regular season games.

    I didn't realize how much cap space the Steelers will have next year, 42 million right now and likely to go up with new TV deals.

    42 million is cap space, and no star QB available in the draft.

    Here's what an article said, obviously nothing to take seriously, just a bunch of what-if's. For me Derek Carr would be the only interest as a fan.

    Draft

    Veterans that could be traded

    Aaron is not going anywhere, he may retire if he wins a SB but he will not be traded.

    My thought was show confidence in your 1 win team, a sneak is pretty automatic they needed 6"

    I wouldn't want them to go after him anyway, he's nearing the end. I don't think he would like being in the AFC north for a couple years. He would take a beating :lol: Need a younger QB on a 5-6 year plan.

    Here was their reasoning for having him on the list.

    Still competing for a draft pick as well(almost wrapped up #1), maybe they don't care about a W as long as they stay competitive.

    What was probability of victory when the Lions started on offense?
