With This Trade, Are The Detroit Lions Officially “Tanking”?
A week ago, it seemed like General Manager Bob Quinn, Head Coach Matt Patricia and the Detroit Lions were all in. Then, there was the Seattle loss on Sunday. What a difference a week makes.
This trade does raise questions about this season. You can build for the future all you want, but eventually you do have to win. For the Lions, it's been 61 years now....and counting.
BONUS ARGUMENT STARTER
It's too late now (trade deadline has passed), but would you have traded Matthew Stafford, to say a team like the Jacksonville Jaguars, for a pair of No. 1 draft picks. Or do the Lions believe they're only a player to two away?
