Ahh now you show up.
Ahh now you show up.
. How can you not be incensed by this? This game ought to have been theirs. Yet, they are going to blow it because of terrible defense and questionable decisions.
The Lions are infinitely more infuriating than Michigan, Funk, and Borges.
You're right they should have this game, but it's hard for me to take anything you say seriously when you were claiming the game was over in the first quarter.
You're so rational when it comes to Michigan football, yet you're all doom and gloom and about any Detroit sports team. Honestly it feels like you have to distinct posting personalities on Saturdays as opposed to Sunday's.
Michigan doesn't have the legacy of blowin games like the Lions do. Yeah, there are some ugly games, but not to the extent the Lions have.
And the Steelers score again. Fuck this team.
The Lions drive everyone insane, that's a cop out for your Mr. Hyde like behavior in any Lions game thread.
When a team you root for continuously fails it gets to you. The Lions are doing the same things they have done since, oh, 1957. It's gets real old.
It's a bit of a cop out considering how flat out ridiculous you were in the 1st quarter, then not posting until we start to lose again puts on the veil of just trolling.
His deal is you're a troll. You show up only when things go bad and insufferably yell "told you so, they suck."
Nobody cares about your opinion, as you've proven to be a dolt.
to be as insightful as a sack of potatoes.
Now you'll disappear again when the Lions drive down and score the winning TD.
This shouldn't even be necessary. The Lions offense, like they did versus the Cardinals, went asleep in the 2nd half.If they sustained or even did half of what they did in the 1st half this game would be over.
This is a mediocre football team that is benefitting from injuries to the Packers and Bears.No pass rush from the end spot and horrid tackling in the secondary, inconsistency on offense...this team just isn't where it needs to be in Year 5.
Fire Schwartz and Mayhew.
Was it over when...oh, the Animal House meme is over used but it ain't over!!!
Until there's no time left , the game is open. They need to remember that Megatron is good, though.
with all the drops, man.
What a bunch of chumps.
You're the best poster on MGoBlog! Yay!
Ross dropsies ruined that drive.
the damn ball hit him right in the numbers. Also, the ND running back dropped the one before it.
Damn you, Lions.
...assuming we can't recover. Horrible decision that gave a DEAD Steeler team a pulse.
Also, can't be all that hard to cover Heath Miller. Hasn't happened YET.
That probably seals it.
As big a choke job in the second half I've seen in a long time by the Lions. That fake FG attempt Was beyond stupid. Why Why Why put the ball in the hands of a 175lb punter who has no expirence carrying the ball? What could go wrong there
very wrong; to hope that guy could take a shot and hold on to the ball was pretty risky...
We just made Roethlisberger look good. And that's hard to do.
the game is still on the coaches for the fake FG. The whole picture changed and we fired up the home team instead of squashing them, and upping the pressure.
Not over yet, but this wasn't a "gimme" win by any sense. You knew Pittsburgh was going to play better than their record and they were at home. The sky is not falling.
A mediocre team that hasn't made significant strides in three years on defense. Gunther Cunningham is a terrible DC. His DBs have been awful since he got here.
Not falling, but a terrible loss.
Terrible because of the FG decision = ok.
Terrible becaues of the opponent = not really. This wasn't anything near a unanimous "detroit" pick.
Worst 6-4 team in the NFL.
Gunther Cunningham is an appallingly bad DC. He needs to go.
You may be the worst poster on this blog. People like you are making this place unreadable.
You make the internet nearly unbearable.
Seriously, do you read the ingame posts or the posts during the week? Michigan has given its fars FAR LESS reason to do ANGAR! than the Lions have.
These are professionals doing this sort of crap. A person has better reason to be pissed about this than what college kids are doing or not doing.
Your just a dumbass fan that wants to complain. They are still 1st in the divisor dipshit
It would be nice if the receivers would catch the ball. Other than Calvin, anyway
CATCH...THE...FUCKING...BALL. Story of the game...Lion receiver fail.
It's a major need in the offseason. At least two are needed.Ross, Broyles(IR), Ogletree, Durham, Riddick...these are not good players. Burleson is a #3 at best in this stage of his career.
I have come to the conclusion thaat catching a pass thrown my Mathew Stafford might actually be THE HARDEST THING TO DO ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.
I'm not kidding. Based on how well the Lions recievers hang on to the damn ball catching it must be the MOST DIFFICULT THING ANY HUMAN HAS EVER ATTEMPTED.
Unless your name is Calvin Johnson. They've forgotten he exists this half, though.
Seriously, just chuck it up for Calvin. Worst play calling in the 2nd half.
see you all in the UM ISU game...
if you told me schwartz won some sort of madden tournament to get his job i'd believe it. he's got a fan's mentality coaching an nfl team. if he could strip 60% of his emotion, he'd probably be a good coach. too bad that wont happen till he gets fired.
turning down 2 field goals is the story of the game, imo.
to and the Lions could not move it when they needed to. This is a 8-8, 9-7 football team that has made some strides, but still has a long ways to go in other. For starters, they need overhaul the defensive staff. Cunningham is garbage. He needs to go.
Secondly, they WR corps needs to be addressed. This is the number one need on the team right now. They have no one outside of CJ. They need a Marquis Lee or Allen Robinson as well as another veteran receiver. Ross, Ogletree, Riddick, Durham...these guys are forgettable players. They have no other receiver other than Megatron.
I wonder if they'd target someone like Jared Abbridaris, he seems like a guy that could fall to the 3rd or 4th round and just has that look of a solid #2 WR.
Marquis Lee would be a perfect complement to Megatron. Abbrederis is a superb player, but I see him more as a number 3. Not overly fast or big(6'2, 4.6) but great hands. and good athleticism. I could see the Lions drafting, but not as a #2. Ideally you want an #2 who can also take over a game or at least threaten the coverage deep. Anyways, since teams run so much three wides now he would still catch 60-70 balls a year.
I like the idea, but not for a #2. I think the Lions wll have to cut Broyles and most of their current WRs. Broyles is injuty prone and the rest are just not good enough.
In year five. Does that say more about him or the Lions?
I should have known better.
But they're not nearly as bad as those Pitt unis. Those things are ludicrous.
Secondary is horrible as is the pass rush, and linehan is just as bad as borges in regards to not doing wehat works,,,you put 27 pts up in one qtr..than stop going downfield the rest of the game.....the lions defense is bad..any of hose corners on another decent nfl team is a nickel,,houston has lost a step also....I don't know who is worse linehan or gunther
