    Goff has been... okay. He hasn't excited. He hasn't really stunk.

    Here's hoping the issue really is just a lack of weapons. Because I need to see more than Captain Checkdown before I buy in.

    Maybe next week, he will be a monster. Not today.

    But Goff was pretty good today.

    Fields is the same guy he was in college. Elite QB. Total stud. He is going to be a monster.

    Also, I will say that any analysis of Sewell at this point is kind of rubbish. That switch from LT to RT must seem so backwards to him, at least in pass pro.

    As much as I like Sewell I am in agreement that the logic wasn't there in drafting him to switch him to right tackle ... at least not if Fields was believed to have great talent. Drafting a guy 7th overall to somewhat change positions is weird. If they know he'll be a blindside protector in the future, or if they didn't believe Fields was elite, that's different

    Yeah. It's just one possible storyline that could get interesting or a big nothing burger.

    Yes, this is also my worry. However, so far I haven't seen any damning actions that show a desperate attempt to prop up Goff short term in expense of long term.

    Yeah. The other half of that is that he's been looking at Sewell for 3 years and wishing he could get him with the LAR. We all saw how exuberant he was to actually get him. In the press conference after, you could almost see (once a reporter asked him about why they didn't draft Fields) the realization that this was going to be something that he and the Lions were going to have to answer for if Goff/Sewell aren't up to par.

    And I am not anti-Sewell. From everything I have seen from him, he is good and will probably be a HOF player.

    My issue is, did we NEED a HOF Right Tackle? Would a Pro-Bowl level (2nd rd) Tackle be able to block his assignment? In that case you could argue is Sewell/Levi Onwuzurike better value then Fields and one of Liam Eichenberg, Walker Little, Jackson Carman, Samuel Cosmi, etc...

    Yeah that sure seems like it could have been a HR

    They could have swung Goff (after the MS trade) and some other picks to Carolina (I still would take Goff over Darnold) for their pick and had Fields, Sewell and those other 1sts. They would have probably had to give them that 3rd (that became Melifonwu) and probably a future second. That would have been a really good set of trades for us.

    Unfortunately or fortunately (I guess Goff could make this all moot) *Holmes seems to like Goff a lot.

    *I wonder about this though. Does Holmes really believe in Goff? Or did he have to sell Goff to Sheila and the Fords to trade Stafford. We all know they love to hang on to players they think will be HOF level players. How did he convince them to trade MS if it were not "softening" the blow based on getting Goff and a series of picks?

    If that is true he couldn't turn right around and trade Goff after telling them he could get the job done.

    Stafford didn’t want to go there apparently.

    Fields and Sewell would’ve turbo charged this team as well as leaving the Bears in QB purgatory.

    I wanted Fields over Sewell anyway.
