Look who showed up.

Gentle Lion’s fan, This is what it looks like when you put all the pieces together and in sync. Admittedly, the Giants are somewhat ‘crippled’ but that does not detract from the Lion’s performance. First I would like to offer congratulations to E. Ebron who appears to be on the road to shedding ownership of […]

Paranoia about the Detroit Lions

Welcome back to our 59th year of rebuilding Detroit Lion’s style. Sunday’s game, December 10th, was a perfect example of the schizoid personality of the Lions. The first half of the game made me want to watch the Weather Channel covering hurricane Irma for a sanity check. Ever stupid penalty ever committed was revisited 2017 […]

Fitting entry to our 59th year of rebuilding

Gentle Lion’s fans, This was a ‘stinker’ from the get go. Bile started gurgling up when Tate and ‘brick hands’ Ebron early on dropped sure passes. From there the down hill express to defeat left the station. No need to worry about containing Wilson’s running. Rawls shredded the Lion’s defense for ‘only’ 161 yards. Contrast […]

Sheriff Rodgers runs Lions into the twilight zone of wild card games

Gentle Lion’s fans, The wooden stake or silver bullet, take your pick, materialized when M. Prater missed the seemingly routine field goal. As an added bonus A. Rodgers ran for yardage when it counted. Green Bay doubled Detroit’s running effort and had 50% more time of possession. It seemed that Stafford was just slightly off […]

Lost but maybe not all?

Gentle Lion’s fans, Cowboy’s talent overcame Lion’s grit. However, if Green Bay doesn’t bring their top “A” game next week the Lions are NFC central champs. Based on watching the Packers playing the Bears, I wouldn’t be surprised to see an opening salvo with full out passing schemes by the Lions. Send everybody. Let Stafford […]

Specter of things to come

Gentle Lion’s fans, The blog was down last week do to a death in our extended family. My nephew succumbed after a long struggle with a fearsome malady and taken from this earth well before his expected time. Our hearts are heavy with the loss of a Colt’s fan and Lion’s blog reader. Sundays’ game […]

Hard not to believe!

Gentle Lion’s fans, Yes, it’s true the Lions hold their destiny in their very own hands. Sunday’s game with New Orleans was a ‘workman like’ project from start to finish. Not much ‘flash or dash’ but full of ‘slow but sure’ and demonstratively demonstrated by the lopsided time of possession. Almost a ‘throw back’ to […]

Hell endures lowest temperature on record!

Gentle Lion’s fans, Yes it’s true. Our beloved Lions are in first place of the NFL-north division and Hell’s climate is flirting with record cold temperatures. This was not a game to stash away in memories of glory but one that should be excepted as is and a win. Stafford had a less than expected […]

Flirting with disaster Lion’s style

Gentle Lion’s fans, Let’s hope a seasons’ luck wasn’t totally consumed on this game. Yes we won but what should have been a no ‘contest’ was turned into a stomach churning episode. Clearly, Jacksonville’s QB providing the Lion’s defense with two interceptions were made to order ‘gifts’. However, a very special thanks is proffered to […]

Double jeopardy

Gentle Lion’s fans, Again social commitments prevented me from watching all but the last 7 minutes of the game. Undoubtedly, the best ever. Note to the Vikings: When you think your kill-shot is fatal, check for a pulse. Nothing as dangerous as a wounded Lion. I watched after the Vikings took the lead 16-13 of […]
