Snyder just stay with Cousins, or Jones go after him? He's Mediocre Matty's twin and it wouldn't cost them draft picks.

I'm sure a LOT of teams would give up that haul (if not more).

But it then leads to the issue that the Hater's Club refuses to answer. Who replaces him that doesn't result in a MASSIVE drop off?

There would be a massive drop off but, this would be done with the eye on the future and a total rebuild.

Could you? Really? Sooooo you haven't heard of a guy named Dak Prescott that's all the rage in Dallas and is making a tenth of what MS is making?

If he wants to swap the 2 and throw us 2-3 1st, then great. But it's a reason that you can ask for 1st rounders for the guy. Not a good idea.

BQ has made it clear they're going for it all. Whether they get it done is questionable at best. But I like the mentality.

Donít care if itís a drop off, whatís the difference between the Browns 0 win Season and the Lions 9 win season - not a damn thing. Neither one made the playoffs. Staying pat with Mediocre Matty assures the Lions will NOT win a playoff game inthe foreseable future.
