    Remember when we owned The ATL. Now they are a playoff threat. I loved the way they run for 300 yds against the Rams in last years playoff game. Do you know how masculine that was? They rushed for 300 yds!!! I want to flex in the mirror after typing that. :eyebrows:
    Can we please use 5 down linemen so we don't get blown out of Ford Field on Turkey Day?

    lions

    What the hell. The first thing I saw was no throwback jersey they sported the new black ones. That isn’t the Lions tradition the game was ugly as to be expected. If it wasn’t obvious before it should be now THE LIONS SUCK

    One of the worst performances I can remember on a Thanksgiving Day. The offensive line buckled like a cheap patio chair.

    new coach

    micro may get his wish:) but would it be the whole staff cuz they all suck? so who do the lions try to get as a new coach in mid season? interm it and try and get someone good after the year? and who would come to detroit anyway? lets hope we dont see millen take over as coach

    it just adds to the futility of the lions. New coaches new schemes it means more excuses next year

    How about Mike Ditka? The Lions neeed a bigtime ass-kicker and I can't think of anyone better. Hope Millen hires him and Ditka punches him out at the press conference...then finds WCF and wipes the floor with him.

    Yeah, but I expected that Colts loss. The Falcons were beatable in my estimation. They're not having that great a season. The Lions beat Atlanta last season.

    27 to 7 and our TD was a fluke. Hey, Joel didn't fumble early in the game starting the down hill wreck. Maybe Joel's an albatross. Or a Red Herring. I'll pass on Ditka. Get me a young hot college guy with vision. Please, no gay interpretations.

    Do you think a young buck coach and his vision are gonna play with WCF & his cronies? NFW Look at the talented youth the Lions have put on the field in the past 20-30 years. With the exception of Barry Sanders, they have all died a slow, painful death. Barry opted for suicide, and he is the lone Lion HOF'er over that time frame.

    The Lions have to take it from the top...and that means cut the top off...sell the team.

    What a sad, sickly franchise to be in the host city of the Super Bowl. Can we put it to a vote to remove the name 'Detroit' from the Detroit Lions?

    Dett, come back, you're losing it. It seems Ford will try everything so why not a young coach. Maybe Fords given up. What hasn't he tried?
    Except a superbowl winning coach. Millen has rings but that hasn't meant anything. Maybe Fords a senile old man.
