    Ziggy has been going against some very good LTs so far and has really held his own. I've been really impressed with his football IQ given how recently he was introduced to the game. He has great instincts on screens, draws & options.

    Exactly. Any win on the road is a great win.

    Lions fans: Is Stafford getting better? The reason I ask is because I rarely get to see the team play, but I follow the games online.

    I think his decision-making has improved over the last year or so. He still makes some bad passes here and there, especially early in the games.

    Calvin was a decoy today. You could tell he was in serious pain when they showed some close ups of him.

    Wow, great weekend in Detroit sports. Tigers get bounced and Lions lose at home on a long-azz field goal.

    Too many penalties by the Lions and that short punt with with less than 40 seconds left in the game gave the bengals a win that could have gone either way. Lions should be looking good with a 6-1 record but instead lose two games that they should have won vs the Bengals and Cardinals. The Bengals ground defense seem to be a bit stiff too, as Stafford was forced to throw more than he should have.

    Schedule seems to suggest a 9-7 record based on teams remaining.
    Things rarely go the way one would think with our Lions.

    So that means, if they had won today and vs the Cards, they would have probably been a lock for post season play with a 11-5 record??

    I haven't been keeping up with current events, but who is this Bengals QB Andy Dalton? Dude threw out dueled Stafford with three TDs and I think Lions CB Chris Houston was victimized on two of them.

    Good thing is the Bears lost too, and the bad is that the Packers are about to jump both teams and move into first place.

    By refusing to play for Bengals, Carson Palmer forces the Bengals to draft a QB. Having missed the playoffs for ~5 yr. the Bengals have been to the playoffs 3 of 4 years.
    Stafford overthrew at least 4 TD passes.

    Dallas @ Detroit controlled experiment

    Lions were at home for a good match against a quality QB in Andy Dalton. Cinncy's Dee is is average to good with a good Pass rush. They barely won 27-24 as the Lions imploded late in the game. Finally Tron put up some numbers. But Bush couldn't get loose.
    Now comes Dallas similar to Cinncy with a good QB in Romo with good targets but with a porous Dee.
    Can Schwartz fix the blunders ? Will Stafford be rushed due to a nicked Oline ?
