Another weird Lion’s game

Gentle Lion’s fans, Not trusting my memory, I took three pages of notes during the game. Yes, the men in Honolulu blue won but how they got there is up for debate. The brightest spot was Stafford. Others had their moments such as Jones and Tate. A 3-3 tie at the half can be easily […]

A real win-no charity

Gentle Lion’s fans, It wasn’t pretty but it was a win and we’ll take it as such. Still some ‘dropped passes’, frustrating but no impact on games’ outcome. Penalties still on the high side. The big ‘albatross’ is allowing an opposing team’s QB to pass for over 300 yards. The Lion’s ‘running game’ barely sufficed. […]

Thank you Eagles for the ‘gifts’!

Gentle Lion’s fans, Game recap: score big points in the first half, then do practically nothing on offence until the Eagles give you a gift allowing you to win the game. Second half produced three possession with three and out. Just for novelty sake, let’s try to put two half’s of a game with the […]

Ineffectual Bears rises above the ineffective Lions

Wow, where to start. First, condolence to all of you who watched the entire game. One can assume three pathetic routine plays have cemented themselves into the Lion’s playbook. First we have the ‘don’t get called on a stupid penalty unless it materially effects the games’ outcome’. Second, drop all passes that can potentially create […]

Jekyll vs Hyde football

Gentle Lion’s fans, First a disclaimer. Due to a social committment, I was only able to watch the game’s first half. The outcome was never in doubt as I turned off the TV. As usual, our boys put on a performance not suited for those with a weak heat or stomach. How can you have […]

Purgatory: Detroit Lion’s style

Gentle Lion’s fans, If you sat through this entire game you encountered a sense of deja vous when the Lion’s had the ball on Titan’s 1 yard line and settled for a field goal after consecutive penalties eliminated a possible touchdown. You knew dead certain the outcome. Perhaps the offense misplaced Jim-Bob’s play book and […]

Welcome to Detroit Lions fantasy football

Ever inventive, the Lions used a blown PAT to create an opening for a loss. For reasons yet to be divined, the Lions seem to ‘back off’ every time they build a substantial lead. It drives me crazy. Yes, some credit must be given to the opponents for adjustments in tactics. A look at the […]

On the eve of another promising destruction?

Folks, Here we are on the eve of the 2016 season and injuries have already altered the resurrection process. Calvin Johnson’s retirement and Stafford’s future as good/bad/mediocre QB linger in the air like stale beer. Preseason play is a babbling flourish of could’a, should’a, and would’a that fill space on the sports pages. However, hope […]

Ho, hum

Just what you would expect from two lower tier performing teams. A ‘spirited’ battle to the end. Listening via radio did not make the game any more scintillating. Blah is blah. Detroit’s running game was mediocre and run defense was sub-par. And Cutler managed only to pass for 53 yards less than Stafford. Now the […]

Fun to watch but of no consequence

Looks like the ‘boys’ had some fun today. Somehow the 49ers stole the ‘timely stupid penalty’ play book from the Lion’s locker room. Hats off to ‘brick hands’ Ebron for hanging onto passes thrown in his direction. Whatever effected Calvin seems to be wearing off. To bad he missed the one ‘circus catch’. Would have […]
