Outside of the Lions just being the Lions, it was the untimely penalties of substitute left guard Aboushi and substitute cornerback Oruwariye that stymied any momentum we garnered in the first half. I was particularly disappointed in the latter's performance since I was always high on him as a cover corner prospect.

Has anyone done a financial analysis of how much is spent on the Lions and Tigers over, for example, the last 10 years.

Wonder how much we've spent (as a region) on these two teams and what other better resources could have used that money? Sure, most of the money comes from fans who are certainly allowed to spend their money as they choose but perhaps we should be looking at a bigger picture.

Your right. I don't know why, but I thought the final score was 22 - 21. My bad.


Are you certain Nancy didn't think the sign on the door said SALOON instead of Salon?

This defense reminds me of the Terry Fair years.

They looked almost like a real football team yesterday. No turnovers, clutch drive to win it at the end of the game. At least 0-16 will not be repeated.

Fire Patricia.

How they handle Brees and the Saints will be telling. Hopefully, the injury situation will improve, especially in the secondary.

I still can't understand why the Lions' pass rush is so damn anemic! :evil: And I gotta believe the O-line is one of the league's worst; Adrian Peterson is probably wondering what he signed up for. Stafford should be used to scrambling for his life by now. :razz

Adrian Peterson is a piece of human garbage who should be in jail.

I'll take the lack comments about the Saints putting up 35 consecutive points and converting every single third down they encountered during those 5 drives as an indication that nobody's even watching this dumpster fire any more?

In my case - 100% correct. :)

I haven't watched any of the games this season. I'll start watching once Patricia (and hopefully Quinn, too) are fired.

I was watching (sigh), but my earlier comment, "How they handle Brees and the Saints will be telling.", pretty much does just that.

Stafford's interception in the end zone is something that just can't happen if you expect to win.

Stupid column headline from Bob Wojnowski:

"If Matt Patricia can't fix the Lions' abysmal defense, he can't stay."

The article is behind a paywall, so I was unable to read it.

Wojo acts as if the jury is still out on that question!!! The older he gets, the more clueless he becomes. It's sad, because 10 to 15 years ago, Wojo was an outstanding columnist.

It should be plainly obvious to the whole universe that Matt Patricia is completely incompetent. His time is up. He needs to get the hell out of here - NOW.

The corporate media is a joke, just now getting the idea that local content should be paywalled after 2 decades of providing it for free.

Free, sure, albeit behind layer upon layer upon layer of advertising! It wasn't till I installed 8 gigs of RAM that I could read the damn things without waiting five minutes or more for the f---in' ads to download! And that's if the damn computer didn't freeze up! >:
