Killer notes with Baligian In what is billed as his final interview of the 2004 season with Sean Baligian on Sports Radio 1130 Detroit (wasn't last week's the last?), Killer says Joey Harrington better get out of the gates quickly -- or he'll be finished as a Lion.
- Killer doesn?t like the word dynasty, but he said the Patriots have been the dominate team of the 21st century - Lions are looking to re-sign their own guys first - Would like Stocker back at the right price - Need to address Safety position, backup QB, and Guard - Lions might trade back a few positions - If the player they want isn?t there, they might keep falling back in the draft - It?s all guess work right now, need to see the players at the combine - Looking for a player at QB who has won, played a lot, and wants to start, a guy to come in and compete. A possibility could be Kurt Warner - Need to tell a QB that the position is open in order to get them in, but if they win, then Harrington would be an $8million backup - Harrington gets a put up or shut up month. Needs to come out of the gate strong.
Thanks to Jeff Cottrell for the notes.

Why in the world would we want a has been prima donna as a backup qb? The lions have enough problems without warner sitting on the bench.

You know, Killer either says the most outrageous things or the most obvious. The Lions ALWAYS seek to sign their own guys first. Of course they want Stockar back at the right price, but does Stockar even want to come back? The Lions might trade back? Boy, never heard that one! As a 'Lions Insider', I expect Killer to avoid stating the obvious and tell us something that we haven't figured out on our own.

All that really sounds like a whole lot of nothing on his part. A lot of guess work and speculation.
