Calvin, Best, and Delmas are all active for today's game.
OT - NFL/Lions Open Thread/MNF
I'm excited to see how much Hart gets used. A good day by him would help make this weekend suck a little less.
Anyone got a stream for the Lions? No TVs available here
Gah.. making me download additional stuff
EDIT: Never mind this link's working well with Firefox
Perhaps try justin.tv? Haven't used it this year, but it has worked in the past
Found a really good HD stream for the Bears game, but nothing for the Lions
Caliendo bit was actually funny.
Well they have done it. The arrogance and blatant disregard for their customers on the parts of Cablevision and Fox have removed the game, and all Fox including baseball, from local cable. Time to go for a walk with the radio.
First seat licenses and now this.
that make me grateful I'm a stubborn cheapskate and still go with antenna. (At least I upgraded to HD TV and antenna, but that's because I had to.)
I had one at my last house and it was great - been saying I was going to do it here - will be on it this week. Have heard I can use one that goes in the attic, not on the roof but don't know. Should be an interesting project.
I'm in an apartment building in Manhattan and use in-room antennas-- I actually get more channels in my bedroom with the rabbit ears and HD converter than in the living room with the omni-directional thing and HD TV. But when the antenna is in the right place, the picture quality is terrific. But note that if you want to record, it's harder and harder to get a VCR/DVR with an internal tuner so you can schedule advance recording on more than one channel. The manufacturers really want/expect you to have cable/dish. You've really got to fight for old technology.
but, over/under 4.5 sacks for NYG today -- go
i say under!
Surprisingly enough, they are leading the NFC right now in most points scored. If they win today, at least I'll have something to be happy about in regards to football.
are ruining my Patrick Peterson in Honolulu Blue wet dreams.
this is a much improved Lions who are actually competitive this season. They're the team on the rise and the future is bright with the core in place. They are actually a few players away from a playoff team.
Fill three if those this offseason and Lions can contend in '11.
of a need that it once was but if Peterson or Amukamara is available when it's the Lions pick. They'll take them to have the one of the best CB trio in the league.
I'm suffering from news corp. and cablevision too,
Those in NY try this:
it's working well for me!
I'm having a very conflicted day watching the Green Bay / Miami game.
I'm a Packers fan, but I don't hate Chad Henne. I'm also starting Brandon Marshall in fantasy, and my opponent has Aaron Rodgers and the Packers D/ST.
Whatever, I just want the Pack to win.
This is precisely why I don't play fantasy
I had Manningham on the bench. But, you know, WOO New Math!
My Peterson dreams are restored!
Why the hell was Scheffler carrying the ball like he is Dre Bly? That is not a good idea.
2 years ago that a Shaun Hill injury could seriously affect my day, I would have called them a liar. Gotta love being a Lions fan
but Shaun Hill, please get healthy because I do not want to see Stanton on the field ever again. He sucks and can't throw to save his life. The Lions are a Stanton injury away from playing Stafford who isn't 100%. What a bizzaro world.
btw, what a crazy FG that Jason Hanson made! The wind definitely picked up and carried the ball for Hanson. Wow
Stanton is not good.
and got the game last week. It had been a while since I had seen the Lions win in real time. It was a nice feeling...
Despite the record, they've improved.
I want to punch Charles Davis in the face.
Stanton gets sacked by Mr. Cleveland Steamer.
I don't know how, but the Lions' display of lack of composure - despite being paid professionals - is really giving me a big dose of optimism this afternoon.
Is it ten flags now? My God. That is impressive.
is not coaching decisions, not being healthy- it is penalties. Game after game after game- Avril should be benched for the game- we had the Giants stopped for a FG attempt- instead- Avril takes an unsportsmanlike conduct...unbelievable....
but injuries do play a significant factor. No team can win consistently with their backup QBs and third string MLB's.
Team is better, but these penalties have to stop.
would like to have a word with you...
and Leftwich was a decent starting QB at one point. Batch was also a starter.
I should say that no team with a rebuilding defense can win consistently with a backup. Lions obviously are not an elite team ala the Steelers.
he was wearing a leather helmet. The adjustment had to be rough.
that is all, not because he played for MSU but he really sucks.
Don't get sucked in...don't get sucked in...don't get sucked in...don't get sucked in...don't get sucked in...dammit I am now sucked in...
Beast he is.
that is all
Why didn't Jason Hanson kick it out of bounds? Oh you ARE supposed to do that on a kickoff.
Great followed by tragedy. Jesus, this franchise is cursed.
The game is not on in my area. What happened? Who got hurt?
Jeebus this game is rough. Major injuries in almost every game. Hope he's okay.
Oh No. BG just went down.
O-lineman dove right at his left knee. Did not look good :-(
I hope he is okay. He was pointing at his ankle on the sideline.
But they have shown plenty of tenacity.It is a step towards being a good team.
Wow that block on Ernie Simms was crazy.
Woo! Chad Henne!
Other former wolverine:
Jason Avant is having a pretty decent day so far, 5 rec for 62 yds.
Tom Brady 19/24 for 224 1 td 1 int
Mario Manningham 3 rec for 50 yds 1 td
Come on offense. Just throw it up to Megatron. Stanton make yourself useful for once.
EDIT: Or just fumble it for the second time.
Nice for Backus to recover the fumble after allowing the sack. Yeesh.
Is it just me or does Pettigrew rarely put the ball away after catching it. Always seems like he's going to fumble.
He is huge, tho, so there is that. :)
Yep. That is so fitting
Dammit. This weekend blows.
The Lions jail secks the Rams by 38 points last week.
The Rams beat the Chargers this week.
I FEEL LIKE I'M TAKING CRAZY PILLS!
According to ESPN Shaun Hill broke his left forearm in the first half. That sucks because he was playing really well with Stafford out. At least Stafford will be good for our next game after the bye week but now we have Stanton as our primary backup. Fuck. Also, Zack Follet was taken to the hospital and is conscious and has feeling in his extremities. Hope he has a full and fast recovery. Get well Zack.
He is a terrible first-round pick. If you're a TE and you're drafted in the first round, you should not drop one pass per game.
is 3rd in the NFL in reception and reception yards by TEs. He's drafted because he's a great all around TE who can block.
Every WR drops passes even CJ.
I know that the game is over now, and Stanton had an okay game and great effort, but this was me when Drew went in-
this was me!
I got Rick Rolled. Well played sir.
The Space Emperor doing his thing in OT, huge 60+ yd punt to pin back the Ravens.
another TD. FFFFFUUUUu. Gums Austin better get his act together, or there will be consequences and repercussions.
Addai just got hurt again for the Colts. It looks like it is all Mike Hart now at RB. 33 yards on 7 carries.
MNF starting. I want both teams to lose, but Jacksonville winning is probably better for me.
Possible talking point, why is this the MNF game of the week. Bleh.
Ya I agree this is not a great matchup for Monday night, could get ugly for Jacksonville with the Titans offense clicking early.
Vince Young will throw a pick and keep it interesting.
that was a nasty looking injury and he walked away. Wow.
