New NFL jerseys for the most recent draft picks have hit the shelves. It is a time when hope springs eternal and the promise of a new season still rests, rose-colored on the horizon. But, it is also a time when some old friends’ jerseys must be retired. Not to the rafters but to the forgotten annals of team almanacs.

This year’s notable casualties include:

Rodney Peete’s Lions #9 Jersey – Replaced by young Matthew (don’t call me Matt) Stafford.

The draft is underway. I’m sitting here in the Scott Howard box on the side of the road house along with Sgt. Zim and a couple more pals ready to bring you our thoughts/musings.

1) Detroit Lions : Matthew Stafford QB – Georgia. Everyone knew this was coming. The only surprise was that the Lions didn’t milk the 15 minutes. Congratulations kid, you may be able to buy golden toilets for your house but you’re still the QB of the Detroit Lions. How many games before they force Stafford into action? 1? 2? Do you think he asks for Joey Harrington’s old locker?

  • Mike Maycock of NFL Network just informed us, speaking on Jason Smith that “Jason Smith is the best tackle available in the draft to play hard-nosed football”, I’m sure Andre Smith will be furious once he leaves his tea party.

It’s here! It’s here! Let the hyperbole begin! I don’t know what it is, but the NFL draft is an absolute monster when it comes to excitement and entertainment value. Zim and I will be dabbling in a live blog today to provide what I can only assure you will be the highest level of quality football analysis around. A few thoughts before we get started:

    So Many Choices for Cleveland!

    So Many Choices for Cleveland!

  • I’m a little crushed that the Lions have come to an agreement with Matthew Stafford. I derive quite a bit of pleasure from watching Daunte Culpepper “roll”.
  • I feel a little sorry for Josh Freeman. If the Bucs and Jets decide they don’t need a QB he could be in the green room for a long time. Take it from someone who has watched him play for 3 years, he isn’t that great and makes poor decisions. The angle that he had no talent around him is a little overplayed, in 2007 he threw to All-American (and ’08 2nd round selection) Jordy Nelson.
  • I have a feeling that the ’09 QB Draft class is going to end up about as well as the ’99 class, without a Donovan McNabb among them.
  • If you want to play a drinking game, take a shot every time we get to see Andre Smith’s man breasts.
  • If the Cardinals trade Anquan Boldin for 60 cents on the dollar I might leave the country.
  • Michael Crabtree is going to make about 5 or 6 teams feel really stupid very soon.  Maybe as early as his rookie year.

After finishing last season with a legendarily epic failure, the Detriot Lions placed the blame where it belonged — the logo. Check and mate. Playoffs here we come.
