This game feels funny to me but i still think we win.
I call it Lions 23-17 over da-Bears.
What do all the other football junkies think?
The Lions don't play until 4pm...I think he was looking for predictions
i'm not as confident in the lions w/o best. i think the lower the score the better for the lions in this one. need a huge game out of CJ. but i think the bears win this one by about 10.
20-17 Lions. I feel like they jump out to a big lead, scoring 14-17 points in the first half, then hold on defensively for the game. The Bears are good, but hopefully this Lions team proves they want it more.
the score right now. Lions by this much --- close coser than the experts think. Lions 21 Bears 14. in my Lou Corso voice
Lee Holtz disagrees.
have the Bears favored
If we're going for a Lee Corso theme...
Calvin Johnson 21, Da Bears 17 (and yay more fantasy points for me ::fingers crossed::)
Without Best the Lions don't have the running game.
...as much as it pains me to say it.
i totally forgot about Best being out!
Lions struggle to run it even when we have him...
I hate to predict a loss but i have to be realistic.
I call it 21-17 Bears now.
Lions struggle to run with Best in the game. His impact is overstated. The matchup that matters here is the Bears O-line vs. Getting Jake Cutler killed.
On another note does anybody have a link for the game?
If our REceivers keep handing the ball away...70-0 Bears
AND if Stafford keeps throwing INTs.
You should pull Stafford after what appears to be two bad bad reads.
This could be going better.
I hate how the Lions run every 2nd and 10.
The Lions are imploding. And the Bears have a lot more to play for today. Bears 27 - Lions 10. The Lions will not catch up to the Bears this time around.
This looks like it's going to be one of those days, I'm afraid.
Not sure why any team would kick to Hester. He is just so deadly. Better off kicking out of bounce
watching every game since Hesters been in the league I don't get it either.....but thanks stubborn NFL coaches for not doing so!!
I love watching the guy. Everytime he catches a punt there's always a chance he's gonna return it. Same with his kick returns. Love Hester!
Out of bounds. As in boundaries...
I'd personally kick it to him have someone toe him up and someone else take out his knees. Not my fault he won't go down.
So, how about that Michigan game yesterday?
I watched it on the television. It was great entertainment
kick it to Hester? Why do it twice?
This I will never understand. Go Bears.
EDIT: make that 3 times. That one almost broke for a TD too. All I can do is laugh.
Looks like da Bears may wind up with more points than offensive yardage. Ugliness!
At half time, the Giants and 49ers each have a Michigan receiver leaning in receiving yards.
They did a piece about the 49ers and their "team" mantra and one of the players said it's about "the team, the team, the team." Nice to see Harbaugh preaching Bo's words.
We need a touchdown here...makes the second half more manageable..
Unless there is a total collapse by the Bears..we will be 6-3.
Could have all but wrapped up a playoff spot with a win today.
I agree with the announcers, I think Stafford needs to lose that glove or something, he's accuracy just isn't what is has been. And it doesn't help Megatron has dropped a couple passes.
some SERIOUSLY weak-ass defense in the last minute of the half.
Play past the whistle gets you fined...what the hell are they talking about
Fumble + replay rules. Where you need a clear and immediate recovery to overturn, so you cover the ball, even if the whistle was blown.
i know that is the intent, but is something wrong with the rules where the outcome of a play is actually determined after the play by an action outside of the play? If I recover the fumble outside of the actual play, its mine, but if I don't, it's yours
I call this stage of the game "the Kabuki time-out dance."
No the Lions aren't for real. They are better, but they are still shit.
What is Stafford trying to do? Make Tebow look like an all pro? Get rid of the fucking glove and play some football you panzy!
I'm not sure how exactly stafford goes back in after two pick 6 in a row and just tons of bad passes.
he's just been terrible all day.
If I was Schwartz, I'd pull him and put in Hill. I could throw better than Stafford is.
When does the mercy rule go into effect for the NFL? Is it 30 points? Jesus.
Sorry....it only occurs after three successive defensive touchdowns....bad break for us
