OT- MNF open thread. Lions at Bears

Submitted by Rather be on BA on October 22nd, 2012 at 8:32 PM

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!

I can't believe this is still a two possession game. I mean, the Lions haven't shown anything to suggest that even one possession would be doable, but still. How is it only 0-13?

Wow. 0-3 in the red zone will not get it done. Especially when you have first and goal twice and get nothing. Credit the Bears D but a lot of stupid mistakes by the Lions as well.

I credit them for nothing considering the lions have done this all year and they fumbled twice due to simply not protecting the football. If you extend the ball like bell did you better be damn sure you're going to cross the line. He was too far out for that. The dropped passes were atrocious and the fact that megaton got his second catch with 5 minutes left is indescribably absurd. Offense was insane last year and the defense sucked. Now the defense is finally playing like they should and their stacked offense is awful. Go tigers.

Mmmm Hmmm

He's actually 6 feet, so he's not exactly Boubacar Cissoko out there.

Bears fan speaking: I'm about as big of a Charles Tillman fan as you will find (I rarely see other people wear his jersey to games) and he played a very good game, but some of the hype from the announcers and ESPN was way over the top.  He's never been a burner; his claim to fame is that he is really physical and is incredible at stripping the ball (like during his rookie year on Randy Moss in the endzone or during the Cardinals RB in the epic Dennis Green "they are who we thought they are" game).  Without safety help over the top for most non-red zone plays, he could not have played Megatron like that.  So Tillman played a very good game, but ESPN pretends as if he set up Peanut Island all year.

I swear to God. I've seen high school football teams more disciplined, organized and just more fundamentally sound than the Detroit Lions. Can't do the simplest things like take care of the ball, especially in the redzone. What a sorry excuse for an NFL football team. Goodnight!
