    Which Lions team will show up? More importantly, which Lions D will show up? The one that dominated the line of scrimmage and forced turnovers in Weeks 1 and 2 or the one that missed tackles and was pushed around all day in Philly.

    Which is worse, the Bears O or the Lions D? Which is better, the Lions O or the Bears D?

    Bears will intimidate the Lions even before the game starts. Figure on another big loss. Bears have to keep up with the Packers.........

    Bears might get back on track in this game if they ditch Grossman for Griese. Actually, they might have to ditch their entire offense. On the rare occasions when Grossman wasn't throwing horrible passes last night against the Cowboys, his receivers were either dropping balls that hit them in the hands or running the wrong routes.

    Bears should regroup against us quite well, like Eagles did.
    Until we can minumize turnovers and find a defensive playcaller we'll suck.
    Lions 14 + 3 t/os
    Bears 20 + 1 t/os
    I wonder if KJ can help?

    There is hope.
    DT Harris is out, hopefully we can handle his backup.
    Lovee may stick with Grossman who isn't getting it done.
    No Mike Brown, he is out.
    -
    We're deep at WR so if CJohnson can't go Furrey and McDonald should flurish.

    Can we get a better outcome if Kitna gets over 400 yds again?

    Confirmed...ESPN new conference by Lovie today that Brian Griese will start against the Lions Sunday. Grossman is dissapointed saying that just needed a couple more games to get the offense going.......News out of ABC Sports department is that Bob Griese is happy as a lark and will call the next Michigan game with much more enthusiasm:)

    I wonder what Grossman is smoking? He played like garbage for a while. Not sure what he's expecting after that. I understand the frustration, but you have to perform to play in NFL.

    Roy Williams is flapping his mouth again. Nothing to spectacular, but trash talk none the less. I like - and agree with - Urlacher's response.

    Roy Williams, commenting on the injuries to both of Chicago's starting corners:
    Brian Urlacher's response:
    I absolutely agree with Urlacher. I've said it before - especially with regard to Roy Williams - JUST SHUT UP AND PLAY!!!

    That's just Roy. Trying to shut him up is like trying to keep Sheed from getting techs - just won't happen.

    I don't mind the talk. The Lions just can't back it up. That's what is sad.:frusty:

    That's exactly why I don't like the talk!

    Is it just me, or does Roy remind anyone else of the publicity magnets that Moss & TO are? Similar massive egos. And IMO Roy's mouth is bigger than the two of them combined. There's a part of me that wants Urlacher to flatten him on a crossing route if Kitna dares to put Roy in that position...and I don't care if it results in a turnover.

    Those two were detrimental to their teams. Roy does positive things, other than dropping some balls because he's trying to gain yards before he catches it. I think those are primary differences.

    I'd say his mouth is more like Chad Johnson's. T.O. & Moss are just plain crazy man. I think Chad Johnson is just an egomaniac.

    saw an interview with Roy and he seemed modest and humble to me. I read the quotes, but I've seen a different type of guy.......
