    I'm guessing Pettigrew's knee isn't right, and Ernie Sims is undisciplined and uncoachable.

    They did not think Sims fit the system.

    lions get Scheffler and a 7th from Eagles
    denver gets #137

    eagles get Sims

    alright i can understand the Lions a bit now. but now Denver looks silly for only getting a 5th and giving up a pick as well. maybe there's something to be said about Scheffler i don't know about?

    Do the Ford's still own the Lions? Whoever owns them has spent some major change on that team these last few years.

    What a bad trade. Maybe they just wanna purge Sims. Denver doesn't like Schffler, guess Lions turn him into a possession WR/TE/H-back?

    Sorry, I posted it wrong. The Eagles send a 7th to Lions and Clevelands 5th to Denver.

    So Denver traded Scheffler for a high 5th.

    alright cool, thanks for clearing it up. i'm still not sold on the trade for Denver. maybe they just don't have any real usage for a TE in McDaniels' system

    Or maybe McDaniels is having trouble gaining the respect of his players and his only solution is to get rid of them.

    Some speculation from me

    maybe the lions did this so they can package scheffler to Washington to reunite with shabby in order to get Haynesworth reunited with Schwartz, bigal's former DC at tennessee

    then you add Suh to play next to him or McCoy

    lions would be well on their way even if they have to give up their 2nd for the package to get Haynes

    Actually not bad. But instead of Suh, theyu aquired Corey Williams earlier and would be free to draft a LT

    touché
    great point. They get their DT with the the 2nd and Scheffler
    and they get their franchise OT in Okung to protect Stafford

    that would be a nice 2 round harvest

    IIRC, Denver benched Scheffler for conduct at the end of the year. I remember him and Marshall being talked about as players who were likely to be traded.
    If your conduct is being mentioned in the same breath as Brandon Marshall, you have a problem.

    lol the Lions are still the Lions though, they'd find a way to mess up this Madden-esque trade situation

    How about they pick Dez Bryant with their 1st and trade their 2nd for Jared Gaither? Remember, this is the Lions we are talking about here...
