All 8 announcers just chose CHI to win with very few people giving DET a chance to be competitive. Bad blood between these teams.
Grab a drink and enjoy!
Hoping for a Bears victory tonight!
no. i will not. but go lions!!!!
Go Blue! Go Bears! (in that order)
If Linehan can open it up to start (no more of that I-form power/end-around shit that fools no one) that would be great. The Lions have tons of weapons, it's just a matter of Raiola/Backus/Pettigrew not ruining drives with penalties and drops.
CJ with the poor concentration to start.
Well, this is going to be a beat down.
About as bad of a start as you could imagine. Game can go two ways from here... Hopefully the Lions bounce back and can stay in this game.
So, if you blitz to one side of the line, but the play is on the other side, does it make a noise? I think the answer might very well be in the affirmative, if that drive by the Bears was any indication.
As those of you watching the game will note, if you are flushed out of the pocket and must make a desperate pass to possibly eke out a first down, the seven basic ballet movements are indeed essential.
Lions never seem to be mentally in the game until the forth quarter. Keep the game within 14 points and we will be fine.
Don't worry our great pick of Ryan Broyles will win us the game.
Not re-signing Eric Wright this year.
Were they going to pay him in Monopoly money??
Because he's truly making a difference for the Bucs...there is no way he was worth $40 million dollars.
Does anybody know how Nick Harris has a job? Seriously it's like 30-35 yard punts every single time.
I wish they had haggerup or wile..
this is one sad anemic offense
Coaching staff can't figure out how to beat 2 deep safeties.
Stafford has regressed in a major way.
It's not necessarily that Stafford has regressed, it's that defenses are playing much deeper on the Lions than they did last season to avoid the home-run ball that was very successful last season. All in all, the receivers havn't adjusted, single coverage on CJ is obsolete, and none of the other receivers have stepped up to give Stafford help. It also doesn't help when the entire offense is resting on his shoulders. Run game really needs to step it up as well.
Where are the schematic adjustments? Not having a run game is killing this team. They need major help at o-line and RB.
I don't remember him missing so many open receivers last year, particularly on deep balls like the one to Young earlier. I also remember a short one to Pettigrew last week that would have been a huge gain. I don't believe he has regressed necessarily, but maybe lost some mojo. Can he get it back? I'd also like to see a better threat to receive out of the backfield. Leshoure is not bad, but Best was great as a receiver in open space and I think he was a huge asset to the offense.
This is only the second Lions game I've seen this year living in Cleveland (SF was the other). What in the name of Mel Farr has happened to them? They look horrible on every level - no rushing game, no passing game, no pass rush and cant cover anybody. And the punting is short with little or no hang time.
Damn what happened in the off season? I thought we were suppose to be....I dunno.....good?
William Clay Ford Sr. and Jr. happened to them, and nothing will change as long as the Fords are in control.
And I'd give Swartz one more yr
Logic? This was an 0-16 team a couple years ago.
Avril? Young? Best? U enjoying these picks and the Avril signing not Swartz fault but I do blame the play calling on him no imagination on this team Can we get Mattison to pull double duty and Borges for that matter
Avril was a millen pick and got tagged rather than a huge contract or walking. . Titus had a great rookie season and best was a high risk high reward. He had the talent and did very well while he was healthy. Fairley has all the talent in the world and will put it all together. Just look at all the talent mm has acquired for basically nothing? He's a great gm.
Young is a young player with terrible attitude fairley is a 1st round pick that hasn't done shit next to suh who gets doubled every play they draft best who has concussion issues in college and broyles who tore his acl last yr who I don't even know his number. Bentley I will give credit for looks to be a player but other than that I'm not impressed.
People forget just how well fairley played when suh was out. He will be a great player once he grows up a little. Like I said best is a great player. Why not take a gamble. If you're rebuilding from a 0-16 team shouldn't you take a gamble or two? They didn't give shit up to get him. Broyles has looked great in preseason and is still getting back to it. If you ever watched him play at Oklahoma you might understand. All time leader in receptions. Maybe our offense could benefit from that??? Also why in the hell are you judging rookies and sophomores? It takes about 3-4 years to know for certain.
Three or four years when suh is gone possibly stafford or Johnson. Don't you understand in the nfl rookies and sophomore are suppose to have immediate impact. This isn't college your top players need to play and play well. Enjoy this bull shit season and more to come win the best pick available strategy.
Haha.. They aren't going anywhere. Clearly you are clueless as to how the nfl works but your ignorance is not forgiven. So put your tail between your legs and go talk out of your ass on mlive or Espn with your shmitty friends.
They aren't going anywhere
Lotta Michigan folks in Chicago.
It's amazing that this coaching staff can't get the message across that the first 3 quarters count. This problem dates back to last year as well, they are incredibly slow starters and that falls on the coaching staff.
All of their skill players are incredibly young. This has something to do with it me thinks.
A majority of our skill players are untalented. Stafford included.
41 tds and over 5000 yards. yeah, dudes a bum..
0/6 on third downs tonight. His mechanics are crap this year.
Pick any qb of your choice, throw him behind that oline and see how well he performs with 6 defenders in his face.
Derp. Stafford has been tossing it to Tacopants all year. At least give the guys a chance.
The o needs to step up! The d can't hold up to much longer.
Nothing is coming up Milhouse...
Team has zero focus and concentration. Wow do they look like a different team from last year all together. They seem to be channelling their inner 0-16
