OT: Lions @ Steelers Game Thread
Drops and bad tackling or the score would be reversed.
Yep, the Lions don't look sharp.
Lions playing like crap early on.
Brown is killing us!! Go Fire Up, Chips!
Same fucking thing we always see from this team.
Same bullshit we always see from this franchise. The team didn't come ready to play. So sick of this.
Oh and Gunther Cunningham is terrible.
Uh, it's early in this game and the Lions are in first place in the North.
Will the Lions ever be able to not be perfect without some sky-is-falling nancy saying "Same old Lions"?
We may never know.
There is no reason to have faith in the Lions.
Done what for years? Since 2000, the Lions have only had 5 seasons in which they finished with 6 wins. They already have 6 wins with 7 games to go.
They are decided not doing what they've done for years.
They're also driving to cut the score to 7. Why don't you wait a bit before letting sporting events effect your mood so negatively.
That's entirely against his Detroit sports schtick though. 1st quarter over, the forecast...DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM.
This team is doing what they always do.
Same Old Lions.
And you're doing what you always do, declare the game is over in the 1st quarter.
The Lions aren't coming back in this one. Oh, sure, they'll make it respectable in the second half, but the Lions are done.
I guess Megatron's gonna have to be Megatron again.
is the one killing us on offense.
Missing 2 sure TD's.
And yea....the defense looks pitiful so far.
Two picks of Dalton in the first quarter by Hayden and we're up 13-0.
WOO Brownies WOO
Nice to see you're still with us. I thought you may have stroked out watching Borges ball yesterday.
Thanks. I went hunting (belong to a deer hunting club near Alpena) so I was enroute back to Cleveland and listened to the first quarter on the radio, and then watched the game via DVR. At least the first OT I did - after that the recording ran out and I had to switch to the internet to find out we won.
You know what's funny and maybe a bit sad? I wasnt upset at what I was watching - I'm just numb to everything that's happening so while I wanted us to win I wasnt all that upset - I fully expected it.
And since I foolishly posted my "woo Browns" post we've thrown a pick that the Bengals converted into a TD and now just had a punt blocked. I KNEW I was sorely tempting the football Gods by actually calling attention to something GOOD happening with Cleveland.
Is your family originally from Ohio? I learned recently that a bunch of Ohio people have second homes on lakes in northeastern mi that have been in their families for generations. They would take a train back and forth.
No. Originally from Pontiac. Went to Cranbrook and then graduated from U of M in 1981. Lived out on the west coast till 87 then got transferred here with work in and lived here ever since. My dad belonged to the club, then my brother and finally me.
BTW...I had a shot at a nice 10 point and MISSED. That kinda sucked.
Not a hunter myself but I will eat a deer. My dad saw 50 does and 7 bucks opening morning but nothing he thought was worth shooting so be happy you could take a shot. He only shoots bucks, though.
Anybody got a link to a solid feed for this. NC doesn't seem to realize that this is an important game.
I'm not sure of the actual numbers, but just based on feeling it sure seems like reggie bush fumbles more than any player in the league thats not a QB
He's definitely a gamer. Hopefully he keeps the fumbles to a minimum and the turnovers to even less.
The Lions just cannot break free from orbiting Planet Mediocrity. Try as they might, Mediocrity's gravitational pull always manages to reel the Lions back in, preventing them from ever reaching that rarified air programs like the Giants and Steelers always seem to reach. They'll be down a few seasons, but then when they bounce back, they reach the top, unfettered by the gravitational pull of Planet Mediocrity that claims our Lions as a satellite.
Dang it, I wondered why the Steelers were 3-6 and now I'm wondering even more. The Lions need to get it together; lots of game time left but they are in danger of getting blown out of this stadium.
Lions are terrible. So much for having the easiest schedule left. Were going to go 2-5 the rest of the way
Who the hell comes out so poorly with so much on the line?
and that's coming from a guy who's about to distroy his 60 inch plasma with the remote...good hold for the FG, still plenty of time left in the game...
I just turned the game. What in the hell is Pittsburgh wearing? I hope to God DB isn't watching.
Hey Calvin you're not that type of receiver, just get in the end zone. Also Doooooom!
Lol, Megatron playing with the DB there at the end...
Doesn't matter, Lions are going to lose anyway
After the Dallas game, I will never put the Lions out of a game unless there's no Megatron on the field or no time left.
THE LIONS ARE CLEARLY TERRIBLE AND THE MOST OVERRATED TEAM IN THE LEAGUE AND WILL FINISH 5-11 THIS YEAR.
That was pretty odd Stafford standing there courageously and all, fearless of the pain moving close to him...
I think the Lions coaches and Michigan's coaches have the same weekly gameday prep routine. Meaning they have none.
Ohhh! Almost had that INT! Let's stop 'em for three, Go Lions!!!
Huge non-play there. Looks like NW's secondary yesterday.
Couldn't help but noticing the Raiders score. Is that THE Matt McGloin going off for 2 TD's in the 1st quarter?!
These are not the same old Lions, imho...
Down by 3....DOOOOOOOOM!
Stafford and the offense just shredded the Steelers.
Pittsburgh better hope for a first down, otherwise they might not still have the lead going into half.
