    ...and some of those people punch and kick the curb afterwards.

    She wanted medical help. Suh told her to get lost before she ruined his reputation any worse.

    The only part of the story that I believe is completely true is that Suh wrecked that Chevy.

    Chevy? Nah, I'll bet it was actually a Dodge.

    Kinda embarrassing that he wrecked a Chevy when he's the pitchman for Chrysler.

    This week the Lions face the Vikings....
    The key to this matchup will be the play of our QB...
    The Vikings know that if they rattle the guy...that he'll make mistakes.
    The Bears had much success with that this season...
    Stafford had fantasy weeks of 18 and then only 11 points against the Bears.
    The Vikings will look to employ the same strategy as the Bears used.
    The had little success at containing Stafford in the second half last game.
    He ended up with 28 fantasy points, based on a strong 2nd half.
    So the key matchup on the line becomes the Lions Jeff Backus against...
    The Viking's Jared Allen...whose having a pro-bowl season...and will get MVP votes
    Jared Allen has 14 1/2 sacks so far...pressuring the QB.

    The question becomes...who will win the matchup...Allen, or Backus? :cold:

    I know who Darth Tater is pulling for.............:)

    I can't see a guy on a 2-14 team getting MVP votes.

    14.5 sacks, is he not leading the league ?
    We can out score these guys. If we lose, what should the penalty be for Schwartz ?

    Having to coach these knuckleheads is a fair penalty to pay.

    Why don't they employ the same strategy as the Packers used this year? Then they'd be undefeated, too.

    it's easier for a bad team to blitz like crazy, than for Ponder to suddenly throw lazer like passes to competent WRs.

    I think the Lions are going to have a great game against the Norseman today.

    Best of luck, Kittens!

    If we lose and have some personal fouls.........I'll have to look at calling out the coach for not doing his job...

    21-20 and we better never be down.
    ok just the 1st quarter.
    we shouldn't need to sweat this for more than 8 min.

    The Lions were just lucky today that Webb did not start the game...other wise they could have lost by 3 TD's. The Lions offense did nothing exciting this game other capitalize on the Vikings turnovers. if not for those TO's this surely could have been a victory for the Vikings. The defense against the run was very poor, and probably would not have been any better even if Suh had been there. They were just plain lucky on that last play of the game, and the no call face mask was a home field "gift".

    The failure of the Lions to capitalize on the third and short will be a big factor in getting into the playoffs, let alone getting past the first game..... penalties hurt again today, so still some clean up there. Guess we need to wait until next season to really see a "winning" team here.

    The game was a loss to me for the reasons stated in Dre's post. We were ahead by 21 points and the Vikings got robbed. With a face mask called...the Vikings are on the one yard line getting ready for the win...............

    They (VIKINGS) were jobbed....................

    We may be 8-5, but were not ready for prime time by any measure..............

    Vikings had 28 first downs and we had 13...........

    Vikings gave up 6 turnovers to our zero...and we still almost lose......

    They outgained us by 150 yards............

    We're lucky...and we suck...........
