Losing Quin would be a big blow to our secondary. Hope management keeps him at all costs.

Thoughts?

The Lions don't have a lot of cap room. What is this guy talking about?

All costs? No, I don't think Quin should be kept regardless of what stupid contract he might get offered. He's like the 7th best player on the defense. Nice to keep, but hardly irreplaceable.

Probably didn't get the offer he wanted. I wonder who the Texans are looking at for safety depth.

That sounds horrible for us... If we lose Quin we have no one on our roster that can take his place.

I REALLY hope we can keep Quin, dude is damn good Safety. He is a vital player to this D, and comes to play with intensity every game.

I wouldn't describe Quin as having been "used up" by any stretch. He's 27.

I thought that tweet was in reference to Boldin getting traded

It's the sky is falling season; no room for logic here.

Sure they could take a top safety .... but that means passing on another position like WR , NT or OT.

Wilson/Phillips/Delmas anyone?

haha always got something negative to say about the FO or the owner. Typical.

Anwyay, yes, Glover Quin is going to have some interest around the league, but there are a lot of guys (now that Mikell was cut too) that are decent to good safeties that are going to be on the market. (Wilson I believe is signed iwth the TItans, would have to look that up.) If Quin does leave, I'm willing to wait and see how more of FA plays out before I start talking with broad metaphors that could mean anything (chickens coming home to roost I don't even know wtf that could be a reference to).

We will be in trouble if we expect a rookie safety to replace Quinn.

I hope the Texans learned that lesson with their right side of the line. Even if a vet like Winston is slightly above average, he's likely better than the inexperienced rookie you are going to throw out there into the fire.

The great teams don't rely on their rookies to make big impact their rookie season.

I hope we keep Quinn, but at a reasonable price

Texans have been good about paying guys who deserve it and who are a key piece to the team. I think they work out a deal fare for both sides.

Help me out with this.
  1. Watt
  2. Cushing
  3. Smith
  4. Kjax

At least for 2012 I don't think another player outplayed Quin on our defense.


I do agree that he's not an "at all cost" player. We screwed the pooch & overpaid for Manning (I think), but that's free agency & that's what free agency is about. Over paying for Quin isn't going to fix that.

  1. Watt
  2. Cushing*
  3. Smith (debatable)
  4. JJo (debatable)
  5. Kjax
  6. Quin

You could argue that Manning is better ... or not ... which would put Quin #7.


I really hope he sticks around for a fair deal for both sides, what that turns out to be is up for debate tho I think somewhere in the 3-4m range might get it done.

Re: Lions interested in Glover Quin?
 
We need to beef up our front seven in this draft. We could use an upgrade at nose tackle, another starter at inside linebacker (next to Cushing), and a future upgrade at right end (the ninja is aging). Let's face it guys, we could have Pee Wee Herman starting in the secondary and he would still look good if our front seven was dominating. We need a better pass rush from our front seven, not just a one-man show out of J.J. Watt.
