Post I was right, I was wrong
Just killing some time during this football hell, I'm currently in.
Things you called correctly and your worst misfires. I'll start

called it
I thought Joique Bell would be our starter sooner rather than later after the first preseason game I saw him play for us.

Lagarrett Blount would be an awesome power RB

Antonio Brown would be a stud and absolute steal

I thought Eli would become a more clutch(not better) QB than his brother. I know it's debatable but I still stand by this.

Stafford will have a better career than Josh Freeman and Mark Sanchez

Geno Smith sucks

Jason Jones is a better player than Cliff Avril

I was wrong
In 2011, I thought Mikel Leshoure and Titus Young would give us 5-7 years of amazing offense

I thought Darius Slay would suck and would be lucky to still be in the league in 3 years.

I was a believer in Brady Quinn

Bacarri Rambo would be the best S from that draft.

Tyron Smith would be an average LT in the NFL

Michael Bennett's(SEA) career would be over after all the surguries he had with T.B.

Just one Super Bowl win before I go!

I have been right a hundred times. I have been wrong a hundred times.

Predicting a career for a player is hit and miss.

Same thing for me. Some notable players I was right about:

Justin Tuck (3rd round steal)
Justin Houston (another 3rd round steal)
Andre Johnson over Charles Rogers (I caught a ton of flack over this by Lions fans)d
Jahvid Best (never should have been taken)
Joe Flacco (the Lions could have had their franchise QB a year earlier)

Players I was wrong about:
Kevin Jones (thought he would be really good, despite upright running style)
Titus Young (though I didn't have the information the Lions SHOULD have had)
Mikel LeShoure (don't know how much the Achilles affected him, but I thought he was a solid RB)
Darius Slay (I didn't think he was be an effective starter. Glad I was wrong)
Mike Williams (though the stupid demand on his reduced weight kind of hurt him)

I will not put on blinders when it comes to our QBs performances.

lol funny that i disagree about some people's "rights"...for example, jason jones isnt better than avril and im not so sure joe flacco would be a better qb on the lions than stafford has been. i like jason jones and i aprreciate joe flacco s game. flacco is better than 2008 pick gosder cherilus but cherilus was not a bad pick and has had a solid career. im not sure the lions would be much better off if at all had they taken flacco though 2008 would have been a much more fun season w flacco throwing to calvin johnson and roy williams. i dont think the lions organization would be able to make flacco successful the same way that baltimore has.

i remember the wrongs more so than the rights (mostly bc they were players that the lions took that i knew wouldnt be good)...but i agree with m2k on a couple points: i really liked mike williams and leshoure when they were drafted and when we got a glimpse of titus young his rookie year i thought the lions had something.
