Hope springs eternal except for the Detroit Lions

Gentle Lion’s fans, If you had any doubts, this game punctuated all the flaws, shortcoming and fallacious enthrallment about this being the season of recovery. Stafford continued to function as a pinata. Hopefully, he survives to seasons’ end. Even though the Lions are weak in many areas, this game squarely falls on the entire coaching […]

Lion’s ship sinks with all aboard

Gentle Lion’s fans, The Vikings put an end to this seasons’ pipe dream of a ‘work in progress’. Little did we know that Stafford was put on a ‘run for your life’ or ‘eat dirt’ diet. The harbinger of futility was evident on the very first play of the game. How do you have a […]

Masochist are us-Lion’s style

Gentle Lion’s fans, It’s really hard to be a Detroit Lion’s fan without a masochist’s personality flaw. Sunday’s game against Seattle was made to order. Stafford did his magic for the games first score and then team ‘B’ showed up. Seahawk’s running backs must have been exhausted exploiting Detroit’s defense against their ‘run game’. No […]

Lion’s Dolphins game

Gentle Lion’s fans, A very special family event prevented me from watching or listening to the game. The reason: my father-in-law was celebrating his 101st birthday. On the previous Saturday evening he was honored at the 2018 U.S. Navy Ball & Awards Banquet at the Motor City Casio. Retired and active ‘brass’ were in attendance […]

Green Bay gifts Lion’s win

Gentle Lion’s fans, Well you saw the unbelievable. A vaunted kicker missing four field goal attempts and an extra point. Just a ‘small’ donation of 13 points on the scoreboard favoring the Lions. Thank you Packers. On the performance side, the Lions ‘only’ gave up over 500 yards of Packer offence. Rodgers had more time […]

Silver sieve strikes again

Gentle Lion’s fans, When Stafford led the team to a touchdown and left 1:50 left on the clock, in your gut you just knew what was coming. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory is the Lion’s well earned albatross. Elliot is in deed a great running back but the Lions make him look spectacular. […]

Guess who came to dinner and got eaten?

Gentle Lion’s fans, Wow. Did the Lion’s improve or have the Patriots lost their edge? Doesn’t matter. This satisfying win was a long time coming. Admittedly, apprehension was ever present for the Lion’s to do one of their spectacular “shoot yourself in the foot” moments and blow the game. Now onto the good ‘stuff’. Time […]

Another valiant effort-again

Gentle Lion’s fans, Here we go again. The ‘almost’ comeback after allowing the competition to forge a substantial lead. As stated before, pro football is a four quarter game. The Lion’s managed to ‘gift’ the 49ers ‘out a hole’ at every critical time. Stupid penalties were the offence champion of choice every time. Sarcasm intended. […]

Ugly redefined Lion’s style

Gentle Lion’s fans, If you watched the game, it is best to pretend it was just a bedtime nightmare. Animal House football on display with apologizes to Bluto and the boys. We were promised a ‘work in progress’ and did we get it. How many sub-basements does this organization have and where are we? Maybe […]

Prologue to our 60th season of rebuilding

Gentle Lion’s fans, Up front I understand that preseason football is not the ‘real’ thing. Last Friday evening as I am wont to do, channel surfing was in full mode. As curiosity won out, the Lions preseason game with Tampa confronted me. Yes, random viewing was involved for the first half and start of the […]
