I am sure he was tired of losing and I don't think he took too kindly to Bobby Ross, but nobody other than Barry himself really knows why he stepped aside.

If the man didn't want to play anymore, so be it... can't blame the entire Lions organization for that. Can't blame Barry either - he could have been a dickhead like Randy Moss and a lot of other guys these days who simply act out and force teams to cut them loose or trade them, but Barry was all class. The Lions weren't going to trade him, nor should that have felt pressure to.

That's all in the past... move on - it's a new era. A new season in which the Detroit Lions have beaten the Washington Redskins for the second year in a row!!!

:-D
no i have not talked to barry. but barry did not want to be in detroit anymore... let the man go. its sad that detroit didnt want to see this guy win a championship.

and he said he retired because the game of football was no longer fun to him.

In case you don't remember, there was a LONG period of time in which the Lions were run by a complete idiot named Matt Millen. Anyone would be a fool to think there would be a quick fix to turn around the mess he left behind, but the Lions are getting better. They already played the Bears, Packers, and Vikings on the road - we shall see how they all do when they come to Ford Field!

The Redskins making a lot of signings in the offseason doesn't fly - you don't think the Lions did anything - they completely rebuilt their defensive line (and did a good job as the Skins found out)... plus, a lot of turnover in several other positions as well - they are finally starting to build some depth.

I am not saying the Lions are a great team - far from it... just look at the record, but they are getting better and a few more tweaks on defense (LB, CB) and a couple of new pieces on the offensive line (epsecially LT) next year and watch out! If these boys don't go on strike, there is no reason the Lions won't be able to compete in the NFC North next season.

Good luck the rest of the way... I used to live in Denver and I think Coach Shanahan is a good coach - hopefully, he works out for you, but c'mon dude, give the Lions a little bit of credit - this isn't the same group of bumbling idiots from years gone by.

thought so....... redskins did a lot of signing in off season, as u can see we didnt quite work on o-line. arent bears and packers in ur division? if they arent so good how come u have problems with them and see them twice a year?

spartymon wrote: Pretty lame excuse if you ask me...

Your boys couldn't stop Big Man Suh, Vanden Bosch and Calvin Johnson. Plus, I am not sure what Coach Shanahan was thinking by putting in Rex Grossman at the end.

Also, the Eagles, Packers and Bears aren't exactly world-beaters this year, especially the Bears!

Oh well, I just tuned in on the radio and got a lot of yardwork done. Hope you were able to see Big Man Suh's touchdown!!! For all the Lions-haters out there... believe it or not, the Lions are actually getting better!!!

Ugh!!! That's just crazy!

I know I have had some discussions with blackout with DirecTV and they simply shrug and say.. "out of hands... talk to Selig".

Ha! Too bad the 'Skins aren't supposed to win this game...

...not sure where FanIQ gets their information on point spreads because as of this morning, the Lions are 2.5 - 3.0 point favorites, not the other way around!

Redskins should get this one considering they got Chicago and Green Bay.

Lions will scalp them Redskins today !!! Look for 125 yards on the ground and 250 in the air , with three take aways that lead to points on the board . Go Detroit !

Redskins to cage the Lions. (sorry Sis... Huggzzzz)
Washington Redskins 10/31/10
the O line has to keep Stafford upright or it can turn out to be a long day so jahvid best will probably be running a lot but i look for stafford to get a couple of TD's and at least 1 to calvin johnson
Detroit Lions 10/31/10
the silver and blue and Ndamukong Suh will make all the skins go boo hoo hoo
