that is nice bonus change
Detroit lions playoff chances
Very good. Easiest schedule for the rest of the season. I think Cutler is coming back too early. He will be running for his life from Suh, Fairley, WIllie Young, Ansah(hopefully) and co. I think CJ has a big day(150+ and 2 TDs). Man, I never thought I would be more excited for the Lions than Michigan, lol.
massive win for detroit tommorow and by half time Jay Cutler wishes he hadn't pushed himself back early or has been talken out because the lions defensive pressure is to much for a hobled cutler to handle.
My prediction for the Bears vs. Lions: Cutler will cry at some point during the game. Chances are it will be about something unrelated to football.
I thought of this immediately after struggling to watch our game today. That offesne was so damn frustrating. Feel hopeless with Borges as OC and believing that Hoke will retain him....
... and then Lions vs. Chicago in my near future helped me move on. This is one of the bigger games we've had this early in a season in a very, very long time.
Yes, I think we'll make the playoffs (whether we win or lose this game)
Win = 80% make playoffs
Lose = 60% make playoffs
Will Calvin have a breakout game? Hasn't he done that yet? Can someone of his caliber, who has already broken out, have a breakout game?
I was thinking the same thing. I like our chances tomorrow.
Massey predictions for the remainder of the Lions' schedule, if anyone cares, with estimated probability and projected median score:
I'd kill for 6-1 with a toss up to GB. 11-5/12-4. I want to say the Lions will finish 8-0 but it's the Lions and lol 13-3 won't happen to the Lions.
Win the I vision and it will be a#3 seed. Hosting a playoff game would be surreal.
That would get a home playoff game and probably a matchup with Carolina or whomever finishes second in the North. That's a winnable matchup.
A division title is almost too much to hope for.
considering the Lions are in 1st place with a tiebreaker over both CHI and GB. They play the Bears with a hobbled Cutler and GB on Thanksgiving with no Rodgers. Plus easy schedule, if Lions beat the Bears, I expect them to win the division.
Has it been determined that Rodgers will still be out when we play them?
If that's the case, then you have to makre the Lions the favorites for the division. The game tomorrow will be very telling and if we lose then I might change that opinion, but a win tomorrow puts us firmly in the driver's seat.
I doubt that he'll be back within 2 and half weeks in time for thanksgiving especially if it's a short week.
because of the soft schedule with 2 injured QBs in Cutler(though he's playing) and Rodgers. Lions could go 13-3 this season just because of their schedule. Imagine Ford Field in playoff? The crowd would go CRAZY in that game.
Suh will assault Cutler and receive a fine that is questionable.
"Shoulder pad to torso contact."
They are good. Bc they don't have Borges calling plays.
Stop trying to change the subject!
But I do like the Lions chamber this year. It seems like they're playing better defense this year.
I guess this means I can start threads about my Browns too, and not make them OT. Fuck the Lions, I love UM but could care less about Detriot teams and, thanks to my love for UM, I'm in a shitty mood....
Couldn't care less* Because if you could care less, well there's less caring you would be doing.
Detroit sports aren't OT because a plurality, if not majority, of posters here care about them. The Browns are OT because fuck the Cleveland Browns.
But probably a majority. Considering about 2/3 of Michigan students (and thus, alumni) are from in-state and conventional wisdom would suggest a noticeably higher percentage of non-alumni fans are as well, I'd be willing to bet that a majority of MGoBlog posters would affiliate themselves with Detroit pro sports teams.
