They wouldn't have tried to upgrade after 2010 season..so that leaves last year. Orton isn't the answer, but he's clearly better than Cassel. Should have resigned Orton.
I don't remember any other free agent QBs in 2009 we could have snagged instead of Cassel? Anyone remember?
Honestly don't think any power on earth could've gotten the Lions to trade the Stafford pick or the Rams the Bradford pick. Those teams finished last and their fans would've gone ape if they gave up a future QB stud no matter what the package.
Agreed on Orton. That was a pretty obvious mistake.
