Charade Lion’s style

Gentle Lion’s fans, With apologies to the Bard, it was a ‘Comedy of Errors’. Bizarre is a fitting description for the Lion’s game with the Saints. What a titanic defensive display by both teams. A meager 726 yards of total offense was allowed. Easily lost in the melee of stats is the Lion’s total 66 […]

Lion’s meet reality

Gentle Lion’s fans, This game was painful to watch. First off, the offensive line execution put Stafford’s life in jeopardy. In case you missed recent events, he was signed for ‘BIG’ money as a franchise QB. Must give some credit to the Panthers defensive line and secondary. They kept Stafford bottled up and Lion’s pass […]

We’ll take the win but no jubilation just yet

Gentle Lion’s fans, Three positive perceptions and one negative from Sunday’s game. Time of possession was very good. Fair running game displayed. Stafford passed to eight different receivers. Official’s perceptions went the Lions way on two possible pass interference calls late in the game. One was clearly missed and the second a toss up. Clear […]

Playing with the ‘big boys’.

Gentle Lion’s fans, Good game to watch but histrionically based Lion’s finish. Thanks to the defense for making the game closer than the score indicated. However, giving up 400 yards of offence is not dominance by any definition. Prater’s four field goals attest to an inability to ‘cash in’ on opportunities. Third down conversion efficiency […]

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 […]
