Besides the fact that we actually used more first round picks on Roy.....Have you noticed how much we have been spending on Wrs lately. I love Dez Bryant to death, and I am sure the Lions love Megatron, but it seems to me the more money you put into your Wr corp the worse your team becomes. If you look at the Chargers this year, although they did not start strong and always dont, they refused to pay their Wrs and Phillip Rivers is coming close to breaking single season records. My point is Wr is the most overrated position in the league and is just used to sell jerseys. Look at when the Raiders signing of Javon Walker, the Bills signing Terell not any improvement.
A good Wr can not turn a game around they are usually only involved in six plays. Stay away from the first round pick Wrs and start drafting in the trenches. The Lions finally did that this year and look at their improvement. Simply put, Jerry stop selling Jerseys, and start winning games!!!!
I meant to say that Wrs simply do not improve teams that much, not that they are the reason they are bad. I did not write that correctly. It seems to me that good teams do not reach at the Wr position that often.
I just look at teams where you can plug in anyone like the Pats and the Chargers, and it makes no sense to me why we keep drafting WRs and Rbs in the first round. We already had Roy and Austin this year and the year before we already had Marion a proven Rb and still drafted at a skill position with our first pick.
It just seems eerily similiar to the Lions who drafted Wr forever in the first round.
