  1. I'm a little surprised about George Winn. Hopefully the Lions can figure out a way to keep him on the practice squad or some such. He looked pretty good in preseason.

  2. The Lions made the hard choice at WR, CB....I'm proud of them unless the cut players make the Pro Bowl and make us all go looney ...they didn't have the courage at QB but it's a compromise...there is plenty of incentive to see what the backup QBs can do this year
