DENARD THREW THE BALL
Early NFL game.
After faking a jet sweep to Chad Henne. Yes, I think he'll just froze over.
It was a nice throw. Shorts couldn't hold on.
I was reading the box score and saw Denard made a throw, so I went on reading the play-by-play to see what play was it, and I saw the following: Jax
I was thinking what kind of trick play was that utilizing dilithium.
Is Stafford the Gardner of the NFL?
What kind of question is that?
A good one.
Lions are really stinking it up today. 3 INTs for Stafford. Jeez.
Lions are Lions.
Wow..this is unwatchable.
good lord this game is a clusterfuck. With Minnesota sucking, GB with no Aaron Rodgers and the head to head against Chicago we could have this division and we don't want it.
Lions and Michigan: I have no faith in either of them to do anything right offensively.
The lions have the easiest remaining schedule in the nfl...and they're going to piss it away.
but they are pissing this game away. Between Stafford's pick-6 and the other pick in the endzone, they're losing a game they should be winning by 2 or more possessions
We've caught a few breaks. Time to see what this team is made of.
That looked like it was good but it's not reviewable so..
If there's anything worse than being down 27-3 at home it's losing your starting QB to a head injury and having to go back to Weeden.
"There's always next year." with more hope than usual this go around.
The pick 6 was not Stafford's fault. Pettigrew ducked and didn't even make an attempt to catch the ball.
False start on 3rd and 1....it's comical
This Lions game is pure comedy.
Most Lions games are, which is the only reason I ever watch them. Let's go, Thanksgiving!
Was Al Borges calling some of the plays for the Lions today??
I don't know about fags, but God definitely hates the Lions.
are you fucking kidding me
This can't be real life....
Lions: finding a way to lose since EVER. Pathetic
Calvin wanted to score a TD. No point in doing that when you're inside the 5 with 50 seconds to go with 2 TOs.
I cant believe this.
How is that an INT on Stafford and not a fumble?
This team is collapsing AGAIN. He has to go. There is no excuse for this many mistakes in a playoff chase.
What a disgrace this football team is. An absolutely fucking disgrace.
They just didn't execute. He just needs more time.
Plus, the Lions did things(Durham's fumble for example) that not even RichRod's teams did. How the hell do you fumble the ball into the field of play while going out of bounds?
Going to have to look at the film and correct mistakes.
Obviously, this team is in free fall so Schwartz will have to be let go. Knowing this who should the Lions pursue as their next HC? Bill O'Brien? I
I wish someone in the Ford family had the brains to fire everybody in the front office and back up dump trucks of money into Bill Polian's and Tony Dungy's driveways.
When your team has been this bad for this long, I'm afraid its not so much a coaching and front office problem as it is an ownership problem. There's almost no other logical way to explain how the Lions have been this bad for this long.
More like a curse than anything.
I don't understand the argument that Calvin is the best pro athlete in Detroit. Has anyone seen Miguel Cabrera? Calvin can't hold a candle to Miguel. He drops so many passes, and for a big guy, he gets the ball knocked from him so easily more often than one would expect.
He generally has done little. Both need work on performing in the clutch.
Have you seen Calvin in the playoffs? Neither have I.
We had this icon debate a couple of months ago and I think that's a fine debate to have but athlete -- c'mon? Calvin would run and jump circles around Miggy. No contest.
Well that's a way I haven't seen the lions lose thus far, I guess they can still surprise me after 25 years.
I have never seen a professionally football so consistently implode in football games. This game should have been a rout, but dumb mistakes once again cost them a game.
The sad thing is that they have improved in spots, but have gotten worse in others. Turnovers have killed this team. The defense cannot force any and the offense continously turns it over. Ridiculous.
As a Bucs fan, I'm honestly shocked that they pulled this one out. It seems like the typical script of the team all year: blowing a late 4th quarter lead and failing to capitalize on what the opposing teams give you. I also figured that after Revis left the game, that Megatron would just go all-world on our rookie CB and tear the game wide open.
But if there's any team that God must hate more than the Bucs, it'd undoubtedly have to be the Lions.
You have a SB win.
Tampa Bay has a Super Bowl victory. Shut your mouth.
Granted, but outside of a lone Super Bowl victory, the franchise has never accomplished anything of real note. Yes, we had a great defense for a while, but outside of our Super Bowl year, it never really mattered. We always seemed to fall flat in the playoffs.
Yeah, yeah, I know. "At least you made the playoffs" is what I'm expecting to hear, but still.....
Ok you didn't go 0-16 one year how's that?
When there was only a 14 game season Tampa Bay was 0-14. I want to say it was 1976 but I am not positive.
26 game losing streak back in 1976-77. How's that for incompetence for you?
Lion's offensive line is the problem... Stafford was running for his life the whole game from Adrian Clayborn.
It's the NFL. Teams will get pressure. The Lions OL actually did a very good job. Stafford had plenty of time to throw. He just made bad decisions with the ball.
The Lions just don't know how to handle success. Shake my head. Either Stafford missed open guys, or the receivers dropped or fumbled.
Can anyone honestly say the Bucs have more talent than the Lions?? No chance.
Just more failure from a losing franchise. They never fail to disappoint their fans..
Two division teams play each other, two other teams play against non-playoff contenders.
So the divisional game ends in a tie and the other two lose. The worst day for any division ever? Certainly the most NFC North game ever.
keeping the Pack from winning it. The Lions have to fire Schwartz because the division is being handed to them on a platter and they are refusing to take it. I don't see how the management can keep this guy any longer.
Was calling the plays on Green Bay's last drive. Unbelievablely pathetic.
