Guess who showed up?

Well boys and girls, the “A” version of the Detroit Lions showed up on Sunday against the Chicago Bears.  Keep in mind that da Bears are not exactly a contending team this year.  I had a strange case of deja vu early in the game when the 14-3 score favoured Chicago.  Enjoy the euphoria while […]

And you thought you knew UGLY!

Condolences to those fans who watched the Lion’s game on Sunday.  After the Lion’s two trips to the ‘red zone’ and settling for field goals, the eruption of gastric bile up into your throat was to be expected.  How did all the receivers develop “brick hands” at the same time?  They all owe Stafford an […]

Reality sucks

Well, well here comes a dose of ‘reality’ to our optimistic version of the 2014 Lions brought to you by the NFL schedule.  Anyone notice the the Chicago Bears are not dead and buried?  The Lions resurrected visions of the ‘good ole days’ of harmful penalties, poor pass protection, questionable play calling and  an untimely […]

Danger lurks in the schedule

The game was exciting but another last minute ‘save’ leaves the lingering question: How will the Lions do against a team who stops the overall passing and running game?  The Lion’s ‘short’ pass defence was lacking.   Also,  R. Bush did not seem quite ‘up to speed’.  At first glance the remaining schedule looks favourable for […]

More gifts from Atlanta and Lady Luck

Wow.  What else describes the Lion’s game in London.  First we must graciously acknowledge the ‘gifts’ from the Atlanta Falcons.  Almost to many to mention but the last two minutes deserve star accolades.  Lousy time management of the clock and the stupid penalties  Matt Ryan’s team mates rise to the top of the heap. Now […]

Christmas comes early

The Lions are personally indebted to the Saints and referees for the early Christmas gifts in Sunday’s game.  The ‘pass interference’ call on 4th down was truly a gift.  And then, D. Brees avoiding a sack by putting the ball in play for an easy interception was unfathomable  and  beyond comprehension.  Some kind of ‘Brain […]

Here we are again!

Fellow fans, Well, here we go again.  Last week’s game had to be one of the most boring I can remember.  The minute Henry missed the first field goal, the final sore was never in doubt.  Lose it by 3 points on a last second field goal by the opposition.  Six points by the offence […]

Don’t drink the ‘cool aid’.

Welcome to our 58th year of a ‘rebuilt’ Lions team. For all of you with short memories, a previous Lion’s team started the regular season 4-0. From there to the agonizing seasons’ end, we fans suffered delusion, frustration and self pity before finally recognizing we were suckered into just another Lion’s ongoing fable of pretending […]

Mercy ending to a pittifull Lion’s year

To the bitter end I did watch. Only the Lions could negate a good punt with an obsecure penalty. Stafford contined in the first half to throw off his back foot. You knew what was coming when they had a 6 point lead in the closing minutes. Been there done that. Perfect execution by Rodgers […]

On to the Lion’s 58th year of rebuilding

Classic Detroit Lion’s performance. Outstanding execution on how-to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. So much credit to go around. Start with spastic performance from Stafford, mix in a healty does of ‘drop-itus’ by your star receiver “Megatron”, pourous secondary pass defense, usual quota of ‘stupid’ penalties, failure to adjust play calling, and inopportune […]
