Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.
If we win, I'll think two things. 1.) What am I drinking? 2.) Wait....what?
until somebody in that locker room takes command and tells them to stop hitting guys in the face after whistles.
Agreed. I'll still watch 'em, but it's so frustrating. And as I type this we get another dumb personal foul after the whistle.
This is a dumb team.
Make Radiohead's "Just" play repeatedly in my head!
The lions are killing themselves. I cant stand watching how undisciplined these lions are. They have a chance to beat the saints but they kill themselves with stupid penalties
that burlson catch shoulda went for a TD...
How about Al Michaels trolling the shit out of Jeff Backus?
I didn't think it was possible to play football with our heads up our asses.
Was offsides at the end of the half on the FG.
worse as the season progresses. Are the other d coordinators that much better, or are injuries taking their toll? Maybe both?
Injuries definitely aren't helping the defense or run game.
This team is showing every sign of a young team that they possibly can. Idiotic decisions, slow starts, too emotional, and don't know how to win yet.
That's 6 points left on the field. Even with all those penalties.
A blocked field goal where the defender was 3 feet offside, and a missed 55 yarder. Tough to grade Hanson on those.
I'm more unhappy with Titus Young costing us a TD when we had the ball on the 3 because he had to slap someone with the referee in the way. That cost us 4 points right there.
i want him to tear them a new ass he acts like they do nothing wrong with these penalties. same old lions with some talented players. bad boys dont win in the nfl
Well, they're also down something like 4-5 starters and 2-3 backups on d, as well. Do that to the ravens and they'll be struggling.
The undisciplined idiocy is just adding to that.
hearing "He's wiiiiiddddeee open, no one around him," or "he's in end zone untouched," two frequent playcalls against Lion defenses..
must frustrating game ever...
not saying the lions aren't hurting themselves with stupid penalties... BUT how is it PI for Burleson, but not for Meachem (in the 1st) for essentially the exact same moves?!?!
Officials don't care who is on the field. Go eat your tin foil hat.
When I saw the Lions picked up Chris Harris, I knew you guys were dun-sky in the secondary.
This is the most frustrated I've ever been watching the Lions in my entire life.
They have zero discipline, and it is costing us dearly. This game was lost on account of the inability of the players to actually play the right way. They have enough talent to beat this team, but they can't put it together, and that's on Schwartz.
I'm starting to not believe in Schwartz anymore, and that realization hurts.
the defenders ran into each other! Wow, was he open or what!!" lol, same old Lions. Playoffs??...Playoffs??... Insert famous rant.
Killing themselves with penalties and trying a 55 yard FG was prolly not smart. D had been solid, why not back them up there instead of trying a long fg with not great reward since we'd still need a td? I trust Hanson generally but not the smartest call.
This team is pathetic! They have committed at least four stupid childish penalties and in two cases lost potential TDs because of them. They are undisciplined and weak-minded. Theyw ill not make the playoffs and again we all drank the kool-aid and ate the cornbread. 8-8 is the best this team will do.
It truly sucks being a lifelong Lions fan.
I am happy with this performance. The mental mistakes are frustrating, but few thought they would win this game.
miracles with this team, but he will end going the same way other Lions' coaches have gone. He'll end up driving himself crazy and ruining his rep trying to change the culture of this hopeless francise.
People will hate the comparison but I see it in a lot of aspects from coaching to discipline to on the field even
I made the same comparison, but got negged for it. Mine was a bit harsher though, I used the word "THUG".
Another dumb penalty... killing drives
He he he he DROPPED IT, no no oh no..
That was not a penalty I'm sorry
No, but now that we've developed a bit of a reputation in this league (which I believe we have), we're going to get horsefucked on the ticky-tack stuff, too.
Been jumping around a bit so I haven't watched everything, but some of these Offensive PI's on the Lions are pretty questionable.
try to get it back. Brees is running a passing clinic, this won't end well.
What good did that do? You netted about 25-30 yards??? I know they are playing stupid right now but Scwartz doesn't need to join in! Some really bad calls not going the lions way though, pretty ticky tack stuff!
When is the last time you saw a thing and said to yourself, "I approve of this thing."
Can someone please explain to me why a defensive pass interference can be nullified if the ball is uncatchable, but it isn't even a factor on offensive pass interference?
I love the fact the Lions are relevant again but I might really hate this team
It is do-or-die time and he punts it. What the fuck?
In these situations where they must be perfect to come back. There is no margin for error, and they usually end up with turnover to a ball hawking safety.
Now I understand why people fight at Lions games, and why Ford Field charges $9 for a beer. Watching this team on a regular basis would make me want to drink and slug someone in the lip.
Hopefully Logan gets a good return here
These offensive PI's are killing us
This ref needs to get a wife, so that he can quit fucking Burleson. This is bullshit. That Saints defender had his arms out, too.
There have been about 8 offensive PI calls all year. 11 of those have been against the Lions tonight.
REALLY PETTIGREW!!!! YOU HIT THE FUCKING REFEREE!!!!!
STOP TAKING DUMBASS PENALTIES
Just... I... AAAARRRRGGGG
Thanks for following suit.
