    The Lions take their 2-0 record on the road to visit the 0-2 Eagles. Which team will break their streak?

    Anyone care to make any game predictions?

    3-0..........

    As the Lions head east they will take care of both NFC East teams, the Eagles and become 4-0 after defeating the sorry Redskins!

    Hell, I may go the `Skins - Lions game..........if a friend can get the free tickets he has been talking about.

    The Lions will be overmatched even by these Eagles. Expect Philly to take advantage of these toothless cats. Donovan McNabb is ready again for prime time. Look for a score of 31-21...........Eagles.........

    I never bet for or against the Lions. Although the last few years were easy to bet against them, your "normal" Lions get unexpected results.

    Eagles are a mess the way McNabb is playing. Now McNabb has started a media frenzy over his HBO interview that will cause distractions. But I wouldn't count them out.

    We have NEVER BEATEN the Redskins there in the entire time of the history between the two teams. 0-21.

    I haven`t been feeling well today, and have been taking lots of meds, perhaps, I didn`t read what I thought i did.

    An article in the USA Today I believe said the Lions lead the NFL in passing yards and INT`S!!

    I know the season is only two weeks old, but that still desreves a hearty..................WTF!!!!!!

    Welcome to the Jungle my friend! The roar is being restored as we speak!

    These are the "same old Lions".



    (Having said that, a minimum of 49.9% of me is still worried that we might lose on Sunday. I've been optimistic about this team before. Just when I thought they had turned the corner, they get blown out and reality slaps me right in the face.)

    Wait, does that mean passes intercepted by our defense? or interceptions thrown?

    High risk/ high reward offense. When you suck, you need to gamble a little bit.

    That is what I never liked about Joey Harrington. It seemed like he was incapable of having a big game.

    You know what I'm trying to say. I'll take the screw ups from Kitna as long as he can produce a big game on occasion. There is no sense in playing conservative ball when you the inferior team.

    If you're chasing Tiger Woods, you gotta shoot for the pins.

    Yeah...that works for Woody Austin.


    I think week 3 three is going to be Another One Bites the Dust.

    A record like that can't possibly stay intact. Kitties have a great chance if they DON'T TURN THE BALL OVER!!!

    Lions not only lose this week but will get blown out!

    Yes, I will root for them. No, I will not believe in them.

    That's ok, there's no room for yellow bellies on the Lions bandwagon. :gun1:

    Marinelli and I are very disappointed in you Tater. If you were on the team, Lighting Rod would have traded you by now. :nono:

    Hey Millen, pass that Kool-Aid! :beer:

    Philly is a tough place to play. Didn't they used to have a courthouse in Veteran's Stadium?

    I think those are the fans that would throw snowballs in the winter with batteries inside.

    I told a friend today, the only thing the Philly fans hate more than Donovan McNabb is the opponent.

    You're right, Philly is a really tough place to play. You're correct, Philly is none for their snowball tosses from the stands.

    I was just checking out espn.com and they have 5 "experts" picking the winners for this week's match-ups. Four of the 5 guys actually chose the Lions to win at Philly! When was the last time the Lions were favoured on the road? Especially in a hostile environment like Philly.

    The Lions are 2-0. The Eagles are 0-2. Philly played poorly on Monday night and have a short week to prepare. Despite all of this, the Eagles are 6.5 point favorites. People just aren't ready to believe in the Lions quite yet.
