Trade Shaun Hill for who?

It wasn't that long ago...


what are we missing jrd66? Hogue was drafted by the Lions, cut and picked up by Carolina and cut and is still a free agent. The Lions traded a 7th rd pick for Shaun Hill. These two players were never traded for another.

Interesting that of what may be the two hardest games on our remaining schedule (Bears and Pack), we may be facing backup QBs.

The Bears don't look too bad with McKnown. Seneca Wallace doesn't look like a great replacement.

Shaun Hill could well be the difference between a 4 week Stafford absence being a playoff killer or us still being in with a shout. I like having him on the roster.

I actually think Wallace did a heck of a job for not having gone through training camp with the Packers, not gotten any reps with the 1st team in practice, and coming into the game cold in miserable weather. He did not hurt the Packers. And he kept them in the game right to the end. I expect the rough spots will be ironed out by Thanksgiving.

I always get a little frightened when the Lions face mobile QBs. The way the Dline is always pressing forward leaves easy lanes for a quick footed QB to make things happen. Wallace isn't a young guy anymore, but he still has some wheels and is easy to lose track of because of his small size. If your right about them ironing out the rough spots by Thanksgiving, GB could be very dangerous on a fast Ford field.

The presumption is you will trade Hill for a mid rd pick. Say rd 5. Prob at best rd 4. That tends to bring guys like Hogue, Whitehead, Jonte Green and so on. Which one of those guys would you give up Hill to get?

well its too late now but yes the lions would need to turn such a pick into something better than what the avg for them seems to be in the 5th, 6th round.
