I'll call you for advice next time.
there would have to be some to wash away
I'll call you for advice next time.
I'd take Blackmon. We'd put up enough points to overcome the horrid bias the refs have against our D-line.
TV off, fuck this.
The Saints have had a few more years of competent management than the Lions, who will be there soon.
These guys did a great job this year, and will be worth watching for some time.
I will be pulling for Harbaugh and Brady from here on out.
Patriots all the way. Love to see them destroy the Saints in the SB.
Not sure what you upgrade first db or lb
Simple as that. I would love to somehow get Morris Claiborne.
call on the false start REF!!
I understand Brees is awesome, but really, it's a total defensive meltdown tonight.
I know there's no way to win, but I can't believe he isn't using his last timeout. Brian Kellyesque.
You get the ball back down three scores with 30 seconds left at your own 3 yard line.
Megatron isn't fast enough to physically cover the length of the field three times in 30 seconds. Methinks that's the better part of valor.
Especially because they could have taken a timeout with 2:38 left. Instead, they let the Saints take knee after knee.
Things like dropping 3 easy interceptions can not happen when you are playing in the playoffs. Obviously the Lions need better corners too (and LB's who can tackle).
The DBs are TURRIBLE! The front 4 cannot get to the QB when there is an open receiver on almost every down. And the LB play in pass defense was just bad all night. This team needs to get help in the secondary. I swear if they draft any offensive players in the first three rounds someone needs their ass kicked!
I think we actually had a good game plan against them. Just didn't make a few plays and let it get away. Best available is no longer the draft strategy for this team. We have needs.
This sentiment for me started early in the season and has only grown as the season wore on and the defense regressed.
If I see him run cover 2 again...
Playing blitzless defense against the Saints is completely unforgiveable. Brees's only bad decisions came when we got real pressure on him.
Alfonzo Dennard please please please.
Well, one things for sure. Pretty confident that Calvin Johnson is the best wideout in the league.
Can't believe Payton had Brees throwing for the endzone when they were up 17 with 3:00 to go. Also, Aaron Berry and Alphonso Smith should never play another down in a Lions uniform. FUCKING TURRIBLE DBs!!!
So I wasn't negging anyone. But this one probably deserved it. Probably deserves a ban too. Maybe you should just realize people aren't out to get you, you're just a dick.
But I'll neg you now, just because it upsets you so.
They have the most overrated defense ever. Their back 7 is hot garbage and if they aren't playing at home where they can use the crowd, their front 4 is average at best.
Go root for the Bears.
The "Same old Lions" don't have a winning record or make the playoffs. They are young, and the back 7 is awful, but to break out that term is pretty cheap.
Lions in the playoffs.
Party likes it's 1999.
TD taken away on the accidental whistle - only lost by 10.
Team on the rise.
All these "I told you so" comments suck.
defense was completely neutralized - front four couldn't really get pressure. the linebackers are out of postion and don't know how to tackle and the secondary gives up the big play. A team effort!
It's going to be a long off season, but there are moves the Lions front office needs to make. Resigning Avril, bringing in Cortland Finnegan, picking up a few interior linemen, and shoring up the running game.
Arguing with one of my buddies who happens to be a Bears fan. I fail to understand people who take more pleasure and talk more shit in another teams loss than their own teams wins. This type of "fan" baffles me.
with 30 seconds left? Am I the only one who noticed that the Saints took a knee on 4th and goal? It was a change of possession! How did the clock keep running?
Game day in Nola. I was disappointed that there were so few Lions fans here. About one or two percent of the stadium were Lions fans. I think all the hotels are booked for the BCS nat champ game on Monday, making it hard for Lions fans to get here last minute. Saints fans took for granted that they would win, and I was really hoping to show them up. All the LSU tailgaters were pulling for the Saints too. I wish more Michiganders would've stuck around after the Sugar Bowl.
Well looks like the Lions still have some work to do. Namely they need to get a Defense. Specifically a pass rush, a run defense and a secondary that can cover someone. Oh and what's up with that horrid tackling!? Sheesh. Lastly they need another money WR to take some of the load of Megatron.
Uhhh the lions had over 5000 yards passing this year... Wide receivers might be one only a few things they don't need. They probably have one of the best receiving corps in the league. The rest of your post I agree with.
