King George to the rescue

The Lions brought in Shaun King and Jeff George to workout on Tuesday. This would be the perfect promotional opportunity for Matt Millen and the Lions. There are a few different angles he could take on this one. I’ll present three ideas:

1. Millen and brilliant friends could start a different quarterback every week. The deal would be if you win, you play the next week. You’re the Detroit Lions quarterback until you lose. That would be infinitely more fun to watch than the dreadfully boring and miserable game against the Bears last week. The Lions are the same old Lions. It’s time they spice things up a bit.

2. They could bring back every former Lion quarterback since Chuck Long and have a royal rumble, winner takes all. The participants would be Chuck Long, Eric Hipple, Rusty Hilger, Bob Gagliano, Rodney Peete, Andre Ware, Erik Kramer, Dave Kreig, Don “The Magic Man” Majkowski, Kent Graham, Frank Reich, Scott Mitchell, Gus Frerotte, Stoney Case, Charlie Batch, Ty Detmer, Mike McMahon, and Joey Harrington. Put these guys in a wrestling ring and the last man standing gets the job. Mike McMahon is a pretty tough hombre but if these guys don’t team up to put Scott Mitchell over the ropes, we’ll be looking at era #2 of Scott “I think I just ate the football” Mitchell.

3. Bring back Mouse Davis to run the Silver Stretch offense. The Lions need to go no-huddle, shotgun all game. Why should we have to sit through a “nails on the chalkboard” Sunday NFL experience when we can watch an infinitely more fun and significantly more effective offense than the “3 and out” version run by Moses’ best friend Ted Tollner? Was Moses even alive yet when Tollner was born?

It just occurred to me that if the Lions ever managed to get Trent Green on the team, he would immediately become the best Lions quarterback of the last forty years. That sends chills down my spine.

The Lions should clearly sign Tim Couch

I'm not sure what is funnier: the above post or Ted Tollner and Moses walking the earth together. I'd say it's a push.
