    Can we all officially agree now that this was a bad experiment?

    I guess, but theres still issues if Decker is in there.

    Blitzes weren’t getting picked up, Stafford is holding the ball too long, interior is allowing way too much penetration in run game.

    Yet Robinson has been the constant suck factor. We've been seeing sporadic lapses from Swanson and Glasgow, but Robinson has just been this steady, consistent level of suck.

    Was there a better alternative after Decker got hurt? And I don’t think he’s been so bad that he’s the reason they’ve lost 2 games.

    I agree. I thinks it more on play calling and forcing the run too much. Th y need to go lights outvpassing. They have thevtwlemt tovopen it up butvthe coaches are idiots forcing ball control crap at the wrong part of the game. Build a lead with passing it a lot forst, use ball control in 4th qtr with decent lead.

    Personally I think it is all execution. The players just didn't get it done.

    I think just about anyone would have been better. Lucas isn't actually a half-bad pass protector. He sucks as a run blocker, but then so does Robinson.

    Mediocre at anything would seem like a huge upgrade right now.

  9. Not sure there were better options after Decker went down, but hoping he is now 100%. I actually think he will make a substantial improvement to the offense when healthy, as #9 can actually have more than 1 second to survey the field before getting hit, or scrambling out of the pocket.

    I’m more interested to see what he can do for the running game. Pass protection has been shaky at time, but some of those issues have been coverage, Stafford holding the ball too long/receivers not getting open.

    Really pleasantly surprised with Decker being activated. I really thought it would be a situation where we would get teased with cryptic Caldwell-speak every week and never see him.

    I agree, thought Decker would be out for the season. Lets just hope his shoulder has healed stronger than it was. We need him bad.

    Decker coming back is equivalent to a mid-season trade for a LT. He should solidify the line, however, now Lang is out with a concussion. The Lions seem to run right a ton with Wagner and Lang and now I see them running Left a ton with Decker back. I don't know if the lack of mentions of Glasgow in every Lions article is either he is doing ok or he is average to middling. I don't see him doing a ton of good things so don't know where he stands.

    You’re only allowed to designate 2 players with the IR return. Can’t see a team using that just for gamesmanship.

    I don't know, check the report...
