Detroit is quietly putting together a nice LB corps.

I think their new regime is showing signs of life.

Gunther has all the pieces he needs now to do this master scheme that has never, ever worked even though he had all the pieces he needed before.

The last time a linebacker left Pittsburgh's 3-4 and joined Gunther's defense, it was a match made in heaven.

Jim Schwartz is a control freak with a big ego. I don't think Gunther is going to have that much automony in Detroit. This is Schwartz's D.

Sounds familiar.

It's really a perfect situation for Gun. If the defense completely blows, he can just blame it on not being able to run his scheme. Then everyone will love him again!

Then that means it was Jim Schwartz who wanted to bring in Eric Hicks. Which means Detroit is doomed right from jump street.

Guess he likes losing if it means being closer to home....

Well, GUn didnt have that much Autonomy in KC either. We had to run, Herm's Cover 2ho Defense. So we will see.

Hicks is just depth. He probably won't even make it to the 53 man roster, and even if he cracks the team, he's just part of the rotation.

The Lions' failures in 2009 will have little to do with Hicks.

It's ridiculous how people mock front offices for bringing in players for depth purposes that will have little bearing on the final outcome.

I figure if Pittsburgh is letting a linebacker go for nothing, it must be for good reason...

You didn't know? Nobody who has failed for the Chiefs has ever gone anywhere else and been decent.

Hicks wasn't a failure. He was an undrafted player who once recorded 14 sacks in a season. The Chiefs hit the lottery with him.

Agreed, the failure is when we didn't cut him the fack loose when his production fell off because Carl was in love with his intangibles. Hicks would of been a dam fine career backup.

REALLY?

Please try to follow: if Jim Schwartz's idea of "adding depth" is to sign a guy like Eric Hicks, who hasn't played since 2007, and whose play had completely fallen off well before he dropped out of the league, then the Lions will fail not because of Hicks, but rather because their coach is, in fact, retarded.

Of course, all of this is meaningless because even Ray Charles, who is both blind and dead, can see that signing Hicks was a Gunther move. Which blows up your assertion that Gun will have no influence there.

Which gets us back to the point, which is that the Lions signing Larry Foote will probably turn out poorly because, just like the last time this exact same scenario unfolded, Gun will try to force a square peg into a round hole until it blows up in his face.

Ernie Simms + Larry Foote > than any combination of LBers on the Chiefs. I guess that's obvious, but equating Foote to the Pitts stiff we signed doesn't make any sense to me. As to why Pitts let him go...who knows? There are plenty of reasons why that happens and many of them have nothing to do with ability.
