Why the Lions Should Not Draft a Quarterback

After the worst season in NFL history and a washed-up QB currently slated as the starter, it would seem obvious for the Detriot Lions to draft a top-tier QB, right?

Wrong!

I believe that doing this will just result in more wasted talent and, more importantly for the Lions, wasted draft picks. And should the franchise want to survive many years longer, they need to change the thinking in Detroit from "How can we get a few wins this year?" to "How can we get to the playoffs next year?"

Ford Field has been hearing crickets for the last 10 years, and if they wanna get enough money from ticket, merchandise, and TV sales to stay in Detroit, they'll need to learn to be more then just nearsighted...and build a team that actually has a prayer at making the playoffs.

There are a few reasons I hope the front office will take into consideration before taking Matthew Stafford as the first overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.
