ENCORE: Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory!

Written By: marvinudy - Dec• 04•15

Die hard fans I fell prey to a delusional psychosis and actually believed the Lions had exhausted all possible ways to lose a game.  Did you listen to your “gut” sense after the first half of the game and recognize that eerie feeling of the Lions being at a familiar fork in the road?  Should have but did not.

After Rodgers scrambled into the end-zone the outcome was inevitable.  Somewhere in the Lion’s genetic code the switch moved from trying to win to trying not to lose.  Forget about the ‘face mask’ penalty.  Yes, it was a close call but the game never should have hinged on the last play of the game.

Winning has a thousand mothers but losing only has the Detroit Lions.  Upward and onward to our 58th year of rebuilding.
