If Lions DB woes weren't enough, Schwartz said Drayton Florence suffered "potentially" season-ending injury. Had x-rays Sun, follow up today

I cannot wait for the "dodged a bullet" or former Bronco bashing here

Florence just wasn't better then Carter or Bolden, or if he was it wasn't by enough to keep him over the younger player. No reason to bash him.

Not exactly sure how you can call Florence a former Bronco.

I'd consider him more of a former Charger, in which case: commence bashing.

Florence dodged plenty of bullets aka passes from opposing quarterbacks.

Sucks to hear that though.

He was an idiot on the attempted fg block last night. A VET should not make rookie mistakes like that. Stupid charger

Florence was such an eye sore especially in the first two games when he was still seeing what appeared to be significant snaps. Dude was lost out of the football. I was very surprised with the film he produced in preseason someone not only took a chance on him, but he was playing significant minutes for Detroit.

Detroit must have an inability to judge talent at the corner position. Seem to either move guys to safety from corner or are constantly searching.

Florence just got old. Not his fault. Corners like Bailey who can play into late 30's are rare. Usually speed goes first, and corner you just have to have it. Florence going to have a hard time sticking around now because younger players will always be quicker and faster.

Last night he ran into the 49ers PK...the ensuing penalty gave them a 1st down, they went on to score TD.
