    It's going to be a LOOOOONG season if they keep this up.

    On the first pass play of the season that the D has faced - against a rookie QB throwing his first pass in the NFL might I add - they D gives up a 60 yard TD pass.

    I was thinking to myself about 5 seconds before the pass "Why the heck is Travis Fisher starting over Leigh Bodden??????". What a joke.

    It's getting ugly man. Kitna is yelling at absolutely everyone. Players, coaches, assistants, the water boy.

    George Foster sucks. He isn't going to get better. He needs to be benched. It's time to see what Gosder can do.

    Travis Fisher sucks. Bodden needs to be the #1 guy. Period.

    The tackling sucks. Their angles are horrible. Stan Kwan needs to be fired. On one of the last kickoffs, they had their man pinned down the sideline, yet they still managed to over pursue and allow him to cut back across the middle for a huge gain. That is ABSOLUTELY unacceptable. That has NOTHING to do with talent. USE THE SIDELINE TO YOUR ADVANTAGE!!!!!

    the play that sealed their fate was kitna sliding 0.5 yards short of a 1st down in the 3rd quarter, forcing them to punt, when he easily had the 1st down.

    I think it was the coin toss that sealed the Lions' fate.

    I just don't know why people are SURPRISED by the outcome.....
    History teaches us that the Lions know how to let down their fans.

    Well technically, they still have a professional franchise, but the team and management is far from professional.

    Commitment to the ground game aye?
    Falcs rushed for 300 yds. That's what happens when your Dline goes 295 at the tackles.
    -
    Hey so that was Fisher checking in with the QB while the receiver ran by. The pass was a stiff piece of rope, that if he just ran between the QB and the WR he could've deflected it.

    Hey D59, if you can't stand the pain try vikadin.

    Good point. They have no pride. Gasbag Kitna went off briefly yesterday, but otherwise today is just another Monday to them.

    Just for a change of pace on Mondays, I wish Bill Clay Sr or Jr would rip some peoples' heads off and poop down their necks. We have pansies for owners.

    Coach means well, but he can't coach. I also don't see the talent that it takes to win. I'm afraid we've been had by Ford. Too many coaches without talent or motivational skills. If we can't beat Atlanta, then who can we beat?
