Out coached and out played!
I'm not gonna overreact here guys - the 49ers are an elite team (in two years!!) The lions could make the playoffs depending on how the bears end up but they a) can't tackle b) aren't consistent c) stafford is a good QB, but there are obvious things that keep him from being considered elite, it's not only about yardage records.
The secondary is heavily banged up with Delmas (who is really overrated, and was at Ricks on Friday night lol) and Houston both out. The LBs aren't very good and the DL is just inconsistent including you, Suh. Once Broyles gets healthy and Leshore gets out there I think we'll be much better on offense. Bell and Smith looked pretty good today when they got decent blocks, Backus looks good. Calvin Johnson and Jason Hanson are also solid.
We lost by the same differential that green bay did in lambeau. We also are missing our starting RB (maybe even top 2 RBs) and a chunk of our starting defense. I'm content
Stafford looked like a real Lion qb in this one
I don't understand that stupid side-arm toss that Stafford uses all the time. Seems like his accuracy issues stem from that.
I'm really not disappointed, I half expected the Niners to shut down the offense but Jonte Green probably shouldn't see the field anymore, he simply can't cover or tackle. Get healthy quickly Houston and Bentley.
Matt Millen! Horrible draft choices keep a lot of holes on OL and at LB's and secondary. Amazing how fast San Francisco has improved. They were a lame team until Harbaugh arrived. Lion's are out of phase. Once they get a good OL and secondary, then Stafford will be an old washed up QB and the DL will be old.
No... before Matt Millen there was a bigger dbag named Russ Thomas. He did more damage than Millen ever could. Are all the Lions fans in here 16 or something? A lot of you forget so easily.
Mathew Stafford is probably the best quarterback in the 4th quarter with under 3 minutes to play. Of course when your down by two scores that's not saying much.
Wow. Bad luck on that onside kick. The ball looked like it was filled with water. Stopped dead without even a bounce. Never seen that before.
Alot of crazy talk here. The Lions lost on the road to a team that was an OT loss away from the Superbowl last year. Let's see what they look like with Leshoure, and when they're not missing 3 of 4 starters from their secondary. Its week two, people. The Lions have some holes due to questionable draft day decisions no doubt, but there aren't too many teams in the NFL that are flawless. I mean, Arizona just went into Foxborough and beat the Pats. From what I've seen for two weeks, the NFL is wide ass open, as usual. Before the year started, I thought Green Bay was a lock for the division title, but after two weeks I'm not so sure. They looked just as bad, if not worse, at home against the Niners.
Uh, the Lions lost the last two games of the season last year by 99 points.
The secondary for that debacle is gone -- replaced by traning camp cast offs from other teams.
Additionally, the Lions have ZERO running game and the left side of the O line sucks -- so does the center.
The Lions will be lucky to go 9-7
What are you talking about? We lost the last two games last year by a combined 21 points, and that was to the Saints and Packers, both on the road.
Arizona is 2-0 and New Orleans is 0-2, fergodsakes!
bummer, but lost to a better team. The schedule looks good for the next few games, Go Lions, Go Blue
Are just not up to the elite of the NFL. Harbaugh made them look bad in all phases of the game, despite the fact that the Lions appeared to have a physical advantage on offense and defense. Such a frustrating game.
If the post is true, quit neg banging just because you don't like it. Grow up babies.
Will running game improve with Leshoure or is most of it because of the O-line?
