On Tap: The Texans

If you're a Lions fan who actually buys in to the utter nonsense and garbage that Detroit hasn't given up on the season, then today is your game. Here's some quick thoughts:

-Kitna on IR: he's done in Detroit. He will not come back next year as a back up to Orlovsky or Stanton.

-Orlovsky's future in Detroit: If Orlovsky doesn't win soon, he will not be re-signed. If he does play well, I'd sign him to a 1-year tender.

-Stanton will play despite my objections at some point toward the end of the season. Look to Week 11 or 12 as the season begins to further unravel.

-Martin Mayhew's trade of Roy Williams to Dallas for a 1st, 3rd, and 6th round pick was nothing short of a miracle. Could you imagine what Floyd Reese could do with this team in three years if he gets to be the next GM with two 1st rounders and a pair of 3rd rounders? We'd be playoff bound by 2011. In fact, the next GM should make that a promise. Or quit.

-I cannot figure out what it is analysts see in Matt Schaub. I don't hate the guy, but I don't get how he magically appears in Houston as a replacement to David Carr.

Prediction: Houston is on a 2-game winning streak after today. Houston 23, Detroit 6.
