I AM BACK!!!!!

In the past, I tried to do too much with this site with way too little time. Yet, I have been feeling a need to write about the Lions lately. So I have decided to change the Detroit Lions Observer to a few basic things. Writing articles when I feel a need to, keeping track of their wins and losses, and I am still deciding if I will go through and update Ndamukong Suh's Sack List.
Ndamukong Suh's Sack List
Keep track of which quarterbacks Suh has faced and which ones he has taken down.

Lions Start Free Agency Fast

So far, at 12:30 PM on the first day of free agency, the Lions have made three moves. They signed DE - Kyle Vanden Bosch and WR - Nate Burleson. The Lions have also made a trade for DT - Corey Williams.

WR - Nate Burleson is a fast receiver who works and plays hard and has good hands. His addition is a vast improvement over Bryant Johnson last year and should give Stafford another real target to throw too. He may also keep defenses honest enough not to double team Calvin Johnson so often.

DT - Corey Williams was an up and coming defensive tackle, racking up 7 sacks two seasons in a row before he was traded and moved to the outside. He has not been very good on the outside. If Williams can find his old self back on the inside with the Lions and they draft Ndamukong Suh, the two of them will reek havoc in the middle. Something the Lions have not done in several years.

DE - Kyle Vanden Bosch showed decent talent in Tennessee a few years ago, but since has not been much of a force. Many believe his drop in productivity was not on account of a drop in his play but because the Titans no longer had strong play from the defensive tackles. With the addition of Corey Williams and if the Lions draft Suh, this could become one of the best defensive lines in the NFL.

The one question mark in the Lions decision so far is the release of CB - Phillip Buchanon. At this time, this move does not make any sense as Buchanon was the only real starter the Lions had at the cornerback position. With this release the Lions now need to address both of the CB spots on the roster. One can only hope they have a real plan in mind because it is of my opinion that you should never release a player unless you already have someone better or as good to replace him. Not in hopes of finding someone to replace him.
