The Lions are playing out of their minds right now.
"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."
Looking really solid in this 2nd quarter on both sides of the ball. Hopefully we can keep it up.
Reggie Bush was worth every penny.
A better best right now.
snowflakes? Don't you mean 'open thread'
so I went with snowflakes. I suppose I could change it if that bothers people.
...more appropos than CornFlakes.
I happen to like cornflakes!
Very nice first half:
Matthew Stafford - 16 for 24, 149 yards, 1 passing TD and 1 rishing TD to his own credit.
Reggie Bush - 11 carries, 112 yards and 1 rushing TD.
The Lions have 17 first downs to the Bears' 5 first downs, and once again, as we look in on what is happening now, the Bears yet again do no convert a third down.
I can't believe Stafford on a sneak attempt at the goalline had the ball knocked out of his hands just as he began to extend it to try and break the plane, caught his own fumble in the air, and scored.
Scored both of the Steelers' touchdowns.
The lions are in great position to completely blow this game in typical lions fashion.
The Bears are going to claw themselves back into this game.
Reggie Bush is running over them left and right...and you call a pass on 2nd and 1?!
It simply was a terrible pass. Stafford hasn't been accurate today.
Well I mean, that'll work.
and then match it with multiple horrible losses. Maybe lightning will strike this year... miracles do happen in sports.
Jalen Rose thinks the Lions will win the divison. This head to head division win will really help.
We will learn a lot more about the Lions after that stretch.
First he loses his "offensive weapon" designation, now he's forced to sit and watch while the Jags slowly dismantle themselves...
Is he just a RB now?
He's a WR now. Apparently he could only wear the 16 as a receiver.
Maurice Jones-Drew is averaging 2.6 yards per carry right now. He's 28 now, which is pretty old for an NFL running back, but still.
Is it me or do the close ups of Jay Cutler look like he's on something?
He just just has those droopy eyelids. It gives him a look of a sleepy, uninterested player
That was a cheap shot on that recovery, and I love Chicago calling TOs just to annoy the Lions.
Bell needs to hold on to the damn ball.
come on throw the ball to Andre Johnson. I need the fantasy points
Glad they stuck it to the Bears. I hate their team and fan base.
Come on throw to Golden Tate! I need the fantasy points.
I can't believe Suh wasn't penalized for twisting Cutler's ankle on that sack at the end of the first half. Dirty, dirty, dirty. Does not belong in the NFL.
It's called a tackle. And he clearly belongs in the NFL.
Hope that was a joke.
Yeah, that's basically football. Nothing wrong with that.
Lol this might be the worst case of bitching just for the sake of bitching. No way in hell was that a dirty play, and if you think so you're beyond ridiculous.
If you don't think that was a dirty play, you're blind. Suh clearly tackles Cutler, and then after the tackle is complete, blatantly wrenches his leg. Cutler took a minute to get up after that play. Suh should be banned.
Whoever your favorite defensive lineman is, or whoever you think the cleanest most angelic player in the league is, I guarantee they've wrenched someone's ankle or gouged a kidney or something in a pileup. Welcome to football.
Just took a delay of game penalty so that he could punt from the Denver 45 on 4th and 6. Chip Kelly!
Golden Tate's been killing my fantasy team. Awful pickup on my part
I feel the same way about my Tavon Austin pickup.
I think Stephen Schilling came in for a couple snaps for the Chargers.
I guess there was an ijury because Stephen Schilling is in at LG now.
Manning and the Broncos offense is just ridiculously good. The look on Chip Kelly's face as Manning marched up and down the field all day was priceless (part "well crap" and "make it stop please"). It's almost unfair to give Manning all those weapons.
And as I'm typing this the Fox affiliate here just switched to the Chargers/Cowboys game because its "more competitive".
Demens played quite a bit in the Bucs/Cards game today. It was about weird as the last time I was in RayJay was the Outback Bowl and Kenny was sporting the Maize and Blue.
I can't believe the Lions beat the Bears, and are 3-1 now. Still not getting my hopes up...still have Green Bay in the division. Besides, it's still the Lions. They somehow ALWAYS find a way to blow it.
The Lions will drop three of the next four, guaranteed...
Those who want to dog Miller need to look at that last Patriots Drive. Getting the QB's the ball is the most important thing a center does, and he is very good at that.
It's a part of the job, yes. But there's a reason you take guys of the requisite size and strength and teach them to snap instead of finding guys that can snap the ball and then teach them how to block. Snapping is a easy skill to teach and develop compared to blocking, which requires both technique and the right genetics.
