Let's grab another W and keep this thing rolling. Go Lions
[ED:BISB; Per request, and to consolidate OT stuff, this thread is now open for NFL fans of all stripes. Though why you would want to watch anyone but the Lions is beyond me]
It is not being broadcast where I am, can I see it on the web?
Thank you sir.
Agreed, and while we're at it I hope the D scores off 5 turnovers, so I don't even have to pay attention to whether my fantasy game is close.
Who the hell are these announcers?
if the Lions home games are on FOX or CBS. I always thought that, in general, the NFC was on FOX and AFC was on CBS. Yet there is sometimes a random exception.
For NFC-NFC matchups it's on Fox.
For AFC-AFC matchups it's on CBS.
For AFC-NFC matchups the road team generally determines whether it's on CBS or Fox. Hence this game being on CBS.
Must not have sold out, I can't even get a radio broadcast online.
That was the ugliset touchdown drive I've seen in awhile.
It sold out, but I can't find anything on justin.tv showing anything other that still photos.
Working for me right now.
Much appreciated. Thank you.
Wow, the mascot might have helped us out for the rest of the game...
this site should work
out of bounds. His leg came down straight with a great deal of force. Looks like a knee injury.
Chiefs moving the ball at will. The offense has not looked sharp either.
the Chiefs are a pretty elite rushing team
The Chiefs are on track for 400 yards rushing. This is extremely poor play on the part of the Lions front 7. They are averaging 8.4 yrds per rush. That is ridiculous.
we don't overreact to 1 quarter of play
and what is your Lions victory in the making beverage of choice?
They can't stop the run or move the ball. This looks like a bad football team right now.
The Chiefs mistakes are why the Lions have the lead. Otherwise, they have been the better team.
Teams looks deflated from last week. The Chiefs are gashing us for big chunks on the ground. Cunningham needs to make some adjustments fast. Also, not a big fan of throwing the ball when we had a 3rd and 1 a few drives ago.
What are people's thoughts so far on the Nick Fairley pick? I'm indifferent so far, but then again, I don't know anything.
what I think once he plays more than 0 snaps in his career.
From what I've read he's been immersing himself in the playbook and video sessions until he's healed up. While he physically may be behind the curve when he comes back, at least he'll be mentally prepared. For the all the questions surrounding his character and work ethic, I think this shows what we can come to expect from him. Our DL is going to be scary with him and Suh in the middle.
Man that looked awful. Hope Charles is okay. I was reading ACL tear on a different forum.
YESS. Keep shooting yourselves in the foot Chiefs.
was their OC last year. He also is a fomer ND HC. Both teams shot themselves in foot. Coincidence?
Florida's offense yesterday as well left a bit to be desired. The Florida D dropped like 8 would be INTs. Bray is just godawful.
Great playcall there Linehan...
Linehan's playcalling is atrocious. 3 and 1 and you run a draw from the shotgun? WTF?
Sometimes one has know when to post and when not to post. I deserve the low rating.
But damn, this team can be good if they just put it together.
Wow, nice throw and catch there! Stafford looks shaken up though. I hope its not a shoulder...
Got drilled in the lower back. Late hit but uncalled.
I love Scheff!
These announcers and the production in general are terrible.
Charlie Batch in.
(We really needed an NFL thread).
Holy crap. Matt Stafford is a freaking cycborg.
From the people that brought you RoboHenne
I love you
Enough talking about fucking windows!
Do NFL refs usually explain after every play why it was NOT a penalty, or is it just easier to clarify after all the "gifts" KC has been giving up?
I have no idea. They have been explaining everything. They even mentioned that following a missed field goal "according to rule, the ball will be placed at the line of scrimmage." Detroiters aren't that stupid.
These announcers are some of the worst I have ever heard. I never want them to call another game. I mean, a five minute discussion on residential windows, portholes, and window panes?
lmao we definitely got the scrub squad for this. I blame it on the chiefs.
In fairness, Don Criqui has been dealin' with some shit recently:
... is amazing. Poor fella, just look how he tries to continue building & re-building a tiny world of comforting disillusionment to hide in as reality keeps relentlessly unfolding before his disbelieving eyes. It's like a child trying to bail out a sinking ship with a teacup. Just ... sad.
He used to be good--in the 1980's! I did not know he was still alive.
You're gonna try to ice Jason Hanson on a 28-yard field goal?
Yeah. Good luck with that.
I always thought he would be a good pro. Good route runner, good hands, plus GRITMOXIE
But all I have seen is two INTs'. I don't think a missed field goal qualifies as a turnover.
The Chiefs picked Stafford and fumbled like 2 seconds later.
As a fantasy owner of the Lions D, I say that counts as a turnover.
I think they are counting the fumble on that interception in the first quarter.
Lions aren't even playing that well. Poor KC, they have good fans.
I love how Charles Woodson picked Cam Newton and now has a fumble recovery. Go Blue!
More like mauled. But yes, they look very bad.
Please, please, please, please, please, please, please take Stafford, Johnson and Best out of the game.
improvement. They have given up 13 pts in two games. I suppose they could give 0 pts and force turnovers on every drive.
Seriously, what stupid announcers.
Considering you were railing on the D earlier in this very thread...
as saying that it needs great room for improvement. The Lions were playing poorly in the first quarter. Fortunately, they tightened up their run defense. Losing Charles helped a bit.
Browns up 17-12, 9:40 Q4. When will they crush my spirit today? Can this be real?
they are playing a Manning-less Colts team. Did you see the Colts without Manning last week?
I'm looking forward to seeing more of this sexy Browns 4-3 D. 3-4? What kind of nonsense is that?
ESPN Fantasy out for anyone else right now? I keep getting error messages whenever I try to look at the page...
The Lions broke the system.
The whole site has something wrong. Espn I meant.
OMG GAIZ THE LIONS SUCKKKK
Turnovers make everything a moo point.....
Give it to Hillis on 3rd and 7! MANBAWWWWWW FOOTBAW
Tyler Palko time.
intercepted a Cam Newton pass! What a great player.
Looking good for the Saints with the win and the loss by Carolina. Hopefully the Eagles take care of the Falcons tonight. It's also nice to see an up and coming Lions team.
The Bears O-line is beyond pathetic.
The Raiders look like their puppy just died.
I'm going to go ahead and venture to say that Todd Haley will be the first head coach fired this season.
He did make the playoffs last year, to be fair. That and their ridiculous injury situation should buy him time. But I think this team might totally give up on him and when that happens you have to fire the coach.
