    Hey, it worked for the Patriots

    They used to have WR Troy Brown do the same thing at the end of close games.

    We were fortunate to win this one historically speaking.

    Over the last 25 years, we are 2-13 against the Redskins.:(

    We should be lucky that the game was played in Detroit.:)

    In the history of this matchup...the Lions are 0-21 against the Redskins AT WASHINGTON. YIKES...:skull:

    In the history of our franchise...over 75 years, we have NEVER won there...:gun1:

    Thanks for posting that link. Looked like Stafford was running for his life with little protection from the defensive line. Per usual for a Lions' QB. Already looks way better than Harrington.

    DC area fans, who care infinitely more about the Redskins than any other local team, are freaking out and calling for the entire organization to be fired. There was actually some dread coming into this game in the local media, with a lot of anticipation about how they might be the team to break the Lions' losing streak, and how that could pretty much ruin the Redskins' season. . So congrats, Lions fans, you finally managed to get another team into big trouble. :laugh:

    While I certainly don't watch many Lions games on TV, I do have to say that in what I saw in this game (the first half and a bit of the third quarter), I was pretty impressed with Stafford. He made some overthrows where he didn't get enough touch on the ball, but I thought his decision-making was very solid, which is the toughest thing for a rookie. All young QBs make mistakes, but I'd say it's pretty encouraging when most of them are of the type where you're throwing to the right guy but just don't quite get it to him. Those things can be corrected much more easily than a situation where the QB can't figure out who to throw to.

    I'm happy to hear about overthrows. Nothing worse than underthrows Harrington style. At least Stafford has the arm to develop some touch with. Favre didnt have a lot of touch early in his career either.

    The Redskins have been a thorn in our sides over the years I've been watching football, so it's nice to see the losing streak ended on their team.

    it was the first lions game i watched from start to finish since i can't remember when... (west side of the state makes it nice, no blackouts)

    I think there were 3 or 4 bullets he threw during the game that once he learns that he needs to loft them just a bit he'll be deadly, as I'm reading most places from "experts" he's almost always throwing to the right receiver too... If (and I hate that word) he keeps improving he will be worthy of the number one pick.

    Now if the lions just don't find a way to mess the kid up.

    Like a paper thin "O" line?

    The O-line has actually played pretty well. Not great, but well.

    They've only given up 5 sacks in 3 games. In comparison, the Lions have 5 sacks on their opponents QBs in those games as well.

    They've rushed for over 300 yards and 3 TDs in 3 games so far. An average of over 100 yards and a TD rushing each game. Not bad, especially when you consider that they were blown out in the first game and had to abandon the run early.

    I think the O-line is a straw man.

    I agree with Jammer. I thought the O-line helped up pretty well against the 'Skins.

    I was watching multiple games at the Harrah's Sports Book in Vegas and you could tell that the crowd was cheering for the Lions as they watched the last series by the Redskins. People were yelling out "lions will blow it" or watch the Redskins rolled down the field and score on the last play".

    Then of course on another TV screen it shows Favre throwing the winning TD with less than 5 seconds on the clock vs the 49 ers and you had that same ole feeling that the same fate that this would happen to Lions.

    But when the clock ran out the last skins play, there was cheer from the crowd as the final score was flashed on the screen
