OT: Lions-Saints Playoff Game Open Thread

Submitted by M-Wolverine on January 7th, 2012 at 7:23 PM

OK, this other games sucks, so get all your positive Lion talk in now, since not being able to hold a 2nd string QB to under 40 has probably killed any chance of seeing the Lions win their second playoff game in most of our lifetimes. At least I'm not still in New Orleans for it.

Can't believe Payton had Brees throwing for the endzone when they were up 17 with 3:00 to go.  Also, Aaron Berry and Alphonso Smith should never play another down in a Lions uniform.  FUCKING TURRIBLE DBs!!!

They have the most overrated defense ever. Their back 7 is hot garbage and if they aren't playing at home where they can use the crowd, their front 4 is average at best.

Lions in the playoffs.

Party likes it's 1999.

TD taken away on the accidental whistle - only lost by 10.

Team on the rise.


All these "I told you so" comments suck.

defense was completely neutralized - front four couldn't really get pressure. the linebackers are out of postion and don't know how to tackle and the secondary gives up the big play.  A team effort!

It's going to be a long off season, but there are moves the Lions front office needs to make. Resigning Avril, bringing in Cortland Finnegan, picking up a few interior linemen, and shoring up the running game.

Arguing with one of my buddies who happens to be a Bears fan. I fail to understand people who take more pleasure and talk more shit in another teams loss than their own teams wins. This type of "fan" baffles me.

with 30 seconds left? Am I the only one who noticed that the Saints took a knee on 4th and goal? It was a change of possession! How did the clock keep running?

Game day in Nola. I was disappointed that there were so few Lions fans here. About one or two percent of the stadium were Lions fans. I think all the hotels are booked for the BCS nat champ game on Monday, making it hard for Lions fans to get here last minute. Saints fans took for granted that they would win, and I was really hoping to show them up. All the LSU tailgaters were pulling for the Saints too. I wish more Michiganders would've stuck around after the Sugar Bowl.

Well looks like the Lions still have some work to do. Namely they need to get a Defense. Specifically a pass rush, a run defense and a secondary that can cover someone. Oh and what's up with that horrid tackling!? Sheesh. Lastly they need another money WR to take some of the load of Megatron.
