  • Wow. I feel bad for the Lions.

    But to be fair, Dunbar had whathisname as his DC - so his results here (or lack thereof?) were probably impacted by that.

    Dunbar wasn't great here or even good though.

  • Sherm has gotta be here next season. It just makes too much sense. Get him in here as a stopgap, he already has a rapport with Witherspoon and will generate some desperately needed hype.

    Very much in favor of a Sherm reunion as long as the bad blood and/or tensions between him, Russ, and PC have been resolved.

    Regarding Dunbar, I'm not surprised we didn't bring him back. Pretty sure I read a quote from Carroll shortly after the season ended that he wasn't a good fit for the scheme they like to run. Based on that comment, I would have been more surprised if they had retained him.

  • This could get us our 4th round comp pick back, depending on the contract.

  • I would rather have Kelly Jennings back before Sherm. Great player but when thing went wrong he was the number 1 cancer. I was really hoping Dunbar would be back, he a talent but just can't stay healthy.

    My thoughts exactly. Sherman needs to come home. 8)

  • Agree to Sherm. Agreed we need to look at CBs hard in the draft.

  • CBs positions are really a big ?. DJ Reed and Witherspoon didn’t play a full season with their respectful teams last season. Can they keep it up for a full 17 game season instead of a 5 or 6 game season?

  • Time seems to have at least partially mended the fences between Sherman and Russ as they did swap jerseys after a game last year.

    I still haven't seen Sherman say anything nice about Russ publicly, however, and Russ has often been portrayed as having thin skin about that kind of stuff.

  • Yeah, because we need a guy back who blasted Russ and Pete, multiple times :?
    In his prime, sure. But he's way past that now. Loved him as a Hawk, but do you think his ego would allow him to sign a smaller $ deal? I seriously doubt it.

    And Russ has been great his entire career. Not sure what that has to do with Sherm.

  • Dunbar/Sherm? I'd take Sherm every time and I'm not disappointed at the Dunbar departure. We gave him a whole lot more than he gave us. Sherm's on field history with us has been top shelf. Can he still play at that level? Probably not, but who can? As for that other stuff...at least we're not talking about criminality. Spiffs don't mean much in the bigger picture. We desperately need CB depth, and in terms of depth Sherm still rates pretty high on the list.

  • Huge difference in ego's. I'll believe it when I see it. And NO, I don't hate Sherm at all. I just don't worship him like many do.

  • Dunbar was a disappointment here, the team trades for him, he gets involved in that dubious criminal matter which then gets him suspended throughout the preseason so he misses camp and then when reinstated is slow to pick things up and didn’t deliver much on his hoped for promise, then he got hurt just as he was starting to get it. Even then his play was hot and ice cold. I’m a tad disappointed that he didn’t re-up b/c a full offseason may have had him show what we’d traded a draft pick to get. He was paid pretty well too and delivered not very much.. Does help on the comp pick front though.

    Not sure at present how much Sherm has left in the tank but his swag could help the team if he has worked out his issues with the team, if not hard pass.

  • Good riddance to Dunbar. I wish Pete would follow him out the door. Watching him "play" injured against the rams was an absolute joke. Pete allowed him to jog the entire game and limp around while getting burned the whole game.

    And to those wanting richard Sherman back...good lord you have to be joking! Cancer to a team, and he can't stay healthy and he can't cover. What are some people watching on sundays that make them believe he would be a good addition?

    Dunbar wasn't a good fit here and maybe he will fit better in the Lions D. I ABSOLUTELY agree with you on Sherman. People keep saying Sherman will bring the swag back, I say STFU we don't need a loud mouth cancer on this team. I don't like Sherman and I never have. That dude is sooooo arrogant and act's like he's the king at the CB position.

    That's crap. What leads you to believe he can't cover? Dude gave up 87 yards last year over 210 coverage snaps, and was one of the best corners in the league in 2019... and every year before that. That not good enough for you? Rather have Tre Flowers starting because he's a nice guy?

    Talk about the "cancer" thing all you want, but he's been anything but a cancer as he's matured.

  • Dunbar = good riddance.

    I'd welcome Sherman back. It would be a very different dynamic than his last season here.

    If we chose a couple DBs in the upcoming drafts (if we can scrounge up more picks) Sherman showed in SF that he is a willing and capable mentor to young DBs. I believe whatever the dynamic or issue with Sherman and Wilson was is long evaporated; not even a factor.

    How much does Sherman have left in the tank? I'd guess a couple years as an NFL-level corner.

    How much would we have to pay Sherman, and would he be worth it vs cap cost? John and Pete's decision, I'll defer to them.
