Barnett in Detroit wouldn't be a good thing


Great … word has it that Nick Barnett is negotiating with the Detroit Lions …

Not only will he be spilling information galore if he signs with the Lions, but that is the team the Packers will most likely battle for supremacy of the NFC North. Yeah, the Vikings and Bears will be competitive, but it’s the Lions that scares me the most.

Any type of advantage will be huge when the two teams meet this year.

Of course, the Packers will adjust to specific situations, but any information Barnett would be able to provide could hurt the Packers.

It was inevitable that there were teams out there interested in Barnett’s services. The longtime Packer certainly has a couple of years still left in the tank … if he can stay healthy. And given the situation with Brandon Chillar being cut because of the off-season injury he suffered, it places the Packers in a predicament, with a dearth of inside linebackers … and I don’t see the team jumping at any opportunity to shore up the position.

We’ll see what transpires in the next few weeks, but should the Packers suffer any injuries among linebackers, it will be a huge hit.

As for Barnett, as a person, we wish him best … as a Detroit Lion, we hope the Packers find a way to run him over.

    Meh – The Lions are going to be relying on their new additions – which have a shortened time before the season to gel. That and their QB has injury issues.

    Players come and go,it’s what you do with the ones you have that count…like last year.

    Yep and scare they should because with the front four we have now and aquisition of fairley……lol qb’s and oc’s are gonna have nightmares galore and with the pressure they will put on qb’s they will make the secondary look like pro bowl caliber players for the most part imo looking forward to a great year GO LIONS!!!

      OK,calm down with the “spilling information galore” thinking.I have yet to see any player be able to tell whichever coach you pick,they’re going to do this or that and make a difference in a game,less an entire season.

      As for your front four,will it be very disappointing for you when they DON’Y SACK the QB every play.You have the Heart of a Lion and the Blood of a Husker,now get your mind away from the propagander and you will see the light.

      I do respect your zeal for your team.
