    The Lions have let an impressive 6-2 record and Wild Card lead slip away with a 4 game losing streak. There's talk of a fragmented locker room. Roy Williams is likely out for the season.

    Yup, same old Lions.

    We've played teams that seem to be on the right track to developing a good core of players. The Packers are nearly complete in rebuilding their defense and Brett Favre still has what it takes to compete. The Vikings have found an system QB, they have very strong line play, and the pulled out a plumb during last year's draft.

    The only difference from last season is that the Bears are worse, or we'd be 4-8 instead of 6-6 right now. Although we beat Dallas last season, we will fail to measure up to their standard this year. I look for a big loss as the Lions continue to collapse into the mess they've always been. Dallas 44 - Lions 13

    I expect this to be a blowout loss. Dallas has something to play for and they'll be looking for revenge from last season.

    Oh yeah, and the Cowboys are better coached, better prepared, more talented, faster, stronger, better tacklers, better blockers and know how to win.

    Other than that, it should be a close game.

    Well we can let Romo slice and dice us at his whim with Barber and Jones balancing his slick passes to Owens.
    Or we can blitz his butt and make him play hurt. I say send 7 every play.

    Looks like less people following the Lions these days. Must be all the losing. The bandwagon seems lighter these days.........

    Tis true I'm afraid. Our gameday chat room was empty by the half of the Vikings game. There isn't much you can say, Kitna was interviewed on Sirius and he said that they will pass, pass, pass. Probably pass gas is what they will do.

    I'm predicting a Lions victory, 23-20.












    And no, I am not on drugs.

    They usually play really well against Dallas.

    But...

    (1)Dallas is pumped because of Kitnas comments.
    (2)Detroit is HORRIBLE lately.
    (3)I bet 2 lunches on the Lions vs. Dallas a few weeks ago (I'm an idiot)


    Three reason the cats get blown out, I fear.


    and yes...We can address your substance abuse problem later

    It's pretty sad when your KICKER is by FAR your best tackler on special teams. He takes the best angles to the ball carrier, uses the sideline to his advantage instead of over pursuing, and wraps up.

    I've been extremely disappointed with Mike Martz this year, but he is calling a heck of a game today.

    A great balance or runs and passes and the Lions have had Dallas on their heels the entire first half.

    Nice blocking by the O-line, great routes by the receivers and prefect passing by Kitna before the WR even makes his break.

    As much as running the ball has helped, I think the biggest difference in the game has been getting the TE involved. It forces Dallas to commit a LB to defending the TE pass and has opened up holes for the running game, which in turn has kept Kitna off the turf.

    Wow, I'm starting to believe this NFL conspiracy crap. The Lions were ROBBED on 2 blatant pass interference non-calls in the first half. One in the end zone, which would have given them 1st and goal from the 1, and the 2nd just before the half which would have given the Lions a shot at a late FG.

    Who the heck is Greg Blue??? I've never heard of him before. He just made 2 of the nicest open field tackles for the Lions this season. The second one saved a touchdown.

    "You're my boy blue!"

    (sorry, I couldn't resist) :MusicBigGrin:

    Paris Lenon is an idiot. All he has to do is fall on the ball and the game is over. Instead, he tries to pick it up and run with it and kicks it right to Dallas. WE DIDN'T NEED POINTS, WE WERE WINNING. Idiot.

    Shaun Rogers needs to be traded or cut. He's fat, lazy and unmotivated. He takes more snaps off than he plays. He was on the sideline during almost every crucial play in this game. Troy Aikman was all over him in this game.

    What the heck was that crap with the kickoffs??? What a freaking joke. The team can't tackle, so they just hand the Cowboys field position.

    Pathetic. Then again, I'm not surprised.

    You see that time and time again on every level of football. It's crazy. They teach you what to do in Jr. High but guys keep doing it. Sickening, but Like Wart said...predictable.
