    The Lions' extremely slim chances at a division title will go out the window with a loss on Thursday.

    The Lions, who currently sit in 6th place in the NFC, would still have an outside shot at a Wild Card spot if they lose, but they would need a lot of luck and help to get into the post season for the first time since 1999.

    So, let's just take care of business on Thursday!!

    P.S. Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!

    The Lions need a win on Thanksgiving Day. They play the beloved Packers who happen to have Brett Favre as their QB. Over his career, Brett has been the Lion's daddy.......
    Even though we need this game more than the Pack, I am looking for Brett to make less key mistakes than Kitna. The Lions are slowly sinking in the midwest. Look for the Packers to pull one out in the 4TH QUARTER to give us Lions fans some moments for Pepto Bismal..........

    Packers 28-24 over the Lions.........

    Yes it does. Every time you pick the Lions to win, they lose. Every time you pick them to lose, they win. It's the "Nemo Effect".

    I agree. The Lions have the toughest remaining schedule based on opponents winning % in the entire league!

    Not exactly a schedule fit for a 3-13 team if you ask me. Sure, the Packers are a heck of a lot better than they were when the schedule was made, but that doesn't matter since it's a divisional game and they all play each other 2 times each year regardless.

    What's interesting, is that after tonight's win by Denver, I'll be the leader in victories at the Lion's pick site for the Piston's Forum team. I will now be carrying the mantra for our 8 members who make predictions over there. Just think how well I'd have done with some good predicting for the Lion's games. If I were 8-2 predicting the Lions instead of 2-8, I would be in 5th place over there out of 125 contestants..........:winner_first_h4h: :bow1: :p_welldone: :party2: :eyebrows::victory: :cool: :thumb: :director: :king:

    and that's no.......... :bs:

    The Lions had the chance to put the Packers in an early hole with a first and goal and had to settle for a FG. Kitna completed a pass to McDonald for what would have been 1st and goal from the 1/2 yard line, but was called back on a chop block by Raiola.

    Then the Packers give them an absolute gift fumble at the GB 25 and again have to settle for a FG.

    They could have been up 14-0 but instead are only up 6-0.

    What's not to love about the "[SARCASM]genius[/SARCASM]" of the Mike Martz offense?

    The score could be better, but it's GREAT to see the Lions running. They've already run more plays than they did the last few weeks. Keep the defense honest and keep Favre off the field.

    Yep.

    Keeping Favre off the field would almost ensure a victory!

    Half way through the 2nd Q. Packers have had the ball for 4 minutes and lead the game.

    Though Martz is involving the backs in the second half, the play calling is suspect. ie...Duckett can catch the ball but you don't run him outside. Another FG.
