Will someone notify the next of kin?

Even under a local anaesthesia or effects from recreational pharmaceuticals this game was nothing but a “Nightmare at Ford Field”.  When you have exhausted all the ‘creative’ ways to lose games revert back to the old tried and proven techniques of pass interceptions and fumbles.  And boy the Lions put on superb how-to demonstration on […]

Not good enough to win but bad enough to lose

Where to begin.  First the obvious, Seattle is not the team it was last year.  But the absence of M. Lynch was a gift to the Lions.  Now onto the game.  The Lion’s offence was totally ineffective.  Forget the last minute heroics.  To many 3 and out series when they had the ball.  Kinda begs […]

Ugly is as Ugly does-apology to F. Gump

First the good.  Stafford did not get carried off the field in the ‘cart’.  All the rest was just ugly. How about that running game with 19 carries for a whopping net of 28 yards.  Stafford had to be quick on the pass release in order to avoid being impaled by Denver’s defence.  No results […]

The bad, ugly and despicable

If this game was a demonstration of Lion’s progress in our 58th year of rebuilding,  we’re already ‘screwed’ for the season.  Beyond pathetic are the words that immediately come to mind.  I think allowing an expensive QB to function as a piñata is something new even for the Lions.  So much richly deserved criticism is […]

De Javu all over again

After the first 21 points you could sense the ‘ghost’ of seasons past.  Then things began to fall into place.  The first was the ‘stupid’ encroachment penalty giving San Diego an automatic first down and subsequent touchdown.  From then on it was “downhill” in a hurry for the defense.     Stand back and watch San Diego […]

Ready or not here comes the 58th version of the Lion’s rebuilding

Now that the pre-season is in the review mirror,  the ‘real deal’ playing starts.  What can we expect? Stafford is in his ‘make or break’ year.  He’ll move on up in stature or become just another ‘coulda bin’. The newly reorganized running back scheme will make or break the season. No running game just guarantees […]

End of another ‘maybe this it year’.

Well, the boys got beat.  In the end our defence could not hold Dallas for the entire game.  Our pass coverage in the middle of the field was our Achilles heel.  We can debate the absolute terrible reversed pass interference call that changed the entire momentum late in the game but that goes into the […]

Only the Lions

Blessedly, I only saw the ‘screwed-up’ punt returned for a Green Bay touchdown before boarding a three hour plane flight.  Saved a lot of consternation and agony.  Our boys in Honolulu blue trotted out almost every conceivable mistake possible in pro football.   The ‘Coup De Gras’ was Suh’s apparent flagrant stomping of Rodger’s leg.  […]

Get ready for dashed hopes

Fortunately I was unable to see the last two games live on television.  Forced to wait for update ‘tweets’ and instant updates on the internet were much less stressful than watching the games ‘live’.  However, the summary for both games is that for two teams that should have been handily defeated were allowed to look […]

easy pickings

Well, well, guess who showed up?  Yep, almost all the parts arrived on time.  Even with J. Bell’s break-a-way run, the running game was less than noteworthy.  Penalties still were nine to many.  Suh needs to forget about the fore arm to the quarterback’s head move.  This one will cost him some $$$.  Next week’s […]
