    Fargas has always seemed fragile to me, even going back to his days at Michigan.

    There have been rumored discussions between Tampa and Minnesota, with the Bucs being interested in either Chester Taylor or Mewelde Moore. However, midseason trades almost never happen in the NFL, so I would be surprised if anything came of this.

    Hey, he was at Michigan first and suffered a major injury there. He is fragile and will never be a full time back, but a decent fill in.

    I was at that Wisconsin game and that was one wicked leg snap. Hard to believe there was once a time when a RB could transfer to USC to get more playing time because Michigan was too stacked with talent at that position.

    Yes, Fargas couldn't get playing time at RB at Michigan. If I recall, he even moved to defensive back at UM so he could play -- then he transferred to USC.

    Trades in the NFL have been more common the past 3 or 4 seasons than in previous years. Teams have now figured out how to use the salary cap so that they are able to pull off trades.

    Damn, I had no idea Fargas played for UM. Just remembered him coming out of SC. But yes, it is funny to think of him tranfering to SC for playing time considering how ridiculously stacked they are at the position now.

    I guess Selvin Young now becomes the next 1,000 yard running back for Denver.

    Well, Tyler does have a way more objective view of that game than you or I Scott, plus, I actually think the Lions break the streak, they have to at some point don't they?

    SD has a poor record in Denver and since they've forgotten how to score points, I don't see how you can pick them to win today.

    Eh, what do I know, may as well become bitter Lions fan, its easier that way. The offensive line is horrible and Backus is way over rated.

    I'll go ahead and update that to 0-21. Man, is Kitna slow. The offensive line has been horrible today, but Kitna just looks like he is running in sand wearing lead cleats with super glue on the bottom.

    Denver is looking really poor. I can't remember when they lost six of eight home games.

    Big bounce back game by the Bears tonight. Griese had a pretty good night and the Bears' D was once again the Bears' D. Benson even had a few decent runs.

    News flash, David -- it's just not today that the offensive line has been terrible. It's been that way for years. Brandon is correct that Backus is overrated, and I'll add overpaid. He looked completely inept today. Millen has failed to invest properly in the OL during his seven years here.

    So, not only are the Lions 0-21 in D.C., they are also 0-12 vs. Joe Gibbs. Oh, and it's been 50 years since their last title, with only a single playoff win since then.

    We know how Cubs fans feel.

    Here is something interesting against the Detroit defense:

    J. McCown30/403132TD
    McNabb 21/26381 4TD
    J.Campbell 23/29 248 2TD

    Check out those completion percentages. That means the QB's are getting way to much time. I thought the Lions front four was one of the best in the league. Its not just the offensive, but the defensive lines that aren't doing their job. I think that I could have stood in the pocket yesterday and found someone to throw the ball to, thats how much time he had.
