Topic: Lions, Broncos, Eagles 3-way

So the Lions gave the Eagles Ernie Sims, the Eagles gave the Broncos a 5th rounder, and the Broncos gave the Lions Tony Scheffler and a 7th rounder.  Seems like the only winner in this is the Eagles? 

Come on Lions, you couldn't do better than this?  With the wonderful trade you made with Dallas with Roy Williams as the benchmark, the Lions screwed up on this one.

The Eagles gave up the 7th rounder to the Lions not the Broncos.

Ernie Sims is a nice player but isnt great with the on-field discipline and has had trouble learning defensive schemes. He was regularly getting replaced last year by our rookie LB, DeAndre Levy.

I like Scheffler. He's a solid #2 TE and a nice compliment to Pettigrew. He'll fill the void left by Fitzsimmons retirement.  He's also a Michigan boy.

I agree that sims was not the greatest player, but to his defense he had to learn 2 or 3 different schemes during his time with the Lions, which obviously didn't help him.  I am just hoping they are planning another move, because now they have another void in the worst defense in the league.  Unless they a comfortable with Dizon and Follett sharing to fill the weakside this year.  I love Follett's intensity, maybe he will get a chance, but that is risky and hopefully there is a backup plan.

I don't think the Broncos know how to rebuild. They're doing it backwards. You KEEP your young WR's, QB and TE when you have them.

It's like something went wrong with their thinking.

If we're ranking these guys as gifts...
Jay Cutler is a Furby. Brandon Marshall is a bottle of Patron. Tony Scheffler is an ugly tie.
