Here are some of your Lions emails:
Â
Hondo I can’t watch the Lions anymore when I see Jon McGraw on the field. He is terrible. Alex-Stockbridge

Â
Alex I can’t stand to watch him either. He is a nice person but our defensive backfield is not good. He is not the answer. In fairness the Lions are filling the holes and this is one that will have to be filled after the season.

Â
Hondo you talked all spring and summer about Ernie and you were so right. He is a stud. Sam-Woodbury

Â
Hi Sam, he is that good. I love watching him play and he is what I like to call: a football player.

Â
Hondo you have not been happy about Kalimba Edwards getting the big jack and where has he been? Aaron-St. Johns

Â
Aaron that is why I have not been a huge fan of that decision by the Lions to give him all the jack. He simply does not produce for the dollars he has been given. I have more confidence in the staff but he has to step it up. He has been a great disappointment.

Â
Hondo what is up with Verba? He gets all that money and has yet to play? Young- Kalamazoo

Â
Hello young. All I have to say is that when he was signed and he was asked if he was going to start, he said: “Ross Verba don’t not start.” Well Ross your team needs you really bad and you’re not starting. So I guess: Ross Verba don’t start.

Â
Hondo with all the coverage you give Raiola I have noticed that he is a great player. I can’t believe it on Sunday he was all over the field. Thanks for showing those “big uglies” as you call them. Brad-Albion

Â
Hi Brad. Dom is a great guy and super good center. He is extremely intelligent and is like another coach on the field.

Â
Hondo I was so glad to see Kevin Jones get the ball more, but they went away from him, why? Eric-Battle Creek
Â
Hi Eric. They went away from it because the pass was working so well under Kitna. Trust me, they love Kevin and you will see more this weekend.

Â
Hondo I am so frustrated. Just when I think I can give up on the Lions you give me more reasons for hope. I think your right that we need to look for hope and improvement this season not super bowl. Kevin-Haslett

Â
Hi Kevin I said it in my preview show and I still maintain it. This team will be better in week 10 then now and we can see we need CB help, OL help and LB depth but they are getting better and those three needs will be addressed this off season. For now, look for improvement and those things will bring and keep hope. I am telling all of you: Marinelli is the man.

Â
Hondo what is your take on Mike Williams and the Lions soap opera? Tracy-Grand Rapids

Â
Tracy thanks for writing. If Mike Williams is good enough to be on the field for the most important drive, then he should have been playing before. Did you notice that when he had the ball thrown at him he didn’t even jump? Pathetic!

Â
Hondo I love your show and all the Lions coverage. Will we win a game this season? William-Mt. Pleasant

Â
William we will bro. Look at my NFL tidbits article from yesterday and you will be very encouraged.

Â
Thanks everyone. Keep your chins up. I said before the season that I didn’t think this was a playoff team, but it will be better and that is what we can ask for. To see progress. Thanks for all the email I couldn’t answer here, but as you know, I will answer all your email personally even though so much does not get on here!
