Chargers “out gift” Lions

Ugly does not even describe this game. Your ‘bingo’ card of penalties would be a sure ‘coverall’. A premonition of disaster started with the missed PAT on the Lion’s first touchdown. Stafford’s time to throw was minuscule compared to the time Rivers enjoyed. If this performance was the new and improved Lions, get ready for […]

Detroit Lion’s ‘never world’

Gentle Lion’s fans, Well here we go again. Another innovative way to make a loser team look good. Never one to let a game escape into the ‘win’ column, our beloved Lions continue to evolve. For starters, we watch a rookie quarterback flounder on trying to pass down the middle. When he switches to slant […]

How low can you go?

The answer will be displayed in the final Green Bay game. For the Viking’s game you needed a “barf bag” compliments of the airlines. Fortunately, I only saw bits and pieces of the game due to a travel schedule and that was more than enough. Review of the game statistics drove home the picture of […]

Same ole, same ole

Gentle Lion’s fans, Finally the hopes and dreams of another season of disappointment are relegated to the trash heap of expectations. Yes, there are still two games remaining for current players to demonstrate their worth for another year’s employment. Nothing else left but hype and bloviating about our upcoming 63rd year of rebuilding. This game […]

How boring but still a win

Gentle Lion’s fans, The blog was “dark” for two weeks.  Thanksgiving’s game caused so much gastric re flux that it could not be put into words.  No TV availability last week prohibited meaningful commentary.  However, this weeks game against the Cardinals was just plain boring.  Just what you would expect from two out of contention […]

Average vs average but entertaining

Gentle Lion’s fans, Detroit had a running game until the injury of Johnson. Bleak omen for the rest of the season. Blount seems to second guess his self to much and gets stuffed. Third down conversion are still miserable. Touchdown opportunities need to be ‘cashed in’ instead of settling for field goals. Major weakness against […]

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 […]
