    The Lions take their 3-1 record and 1 game winning streak on the road to visit the 2-1 Redskins (Skins had a bye this week).

    Game predictions anyone?

    Actually, all a good fan has to do is fly old glory with only 48 stars on it. They're hard to find but could prove to be worth it. I do this cause the last time we won the championship, our flag had only 48 stars.:stirthepot:

    last year the Rams were pretty good with Linehan and Bulger. Rest Bulger get a defense and things will improve. trade Kitna for Bulger.
    THis guy has us beating Wash.
    Risk taker.

    I think I actually predicted them to beat the Bears & Raiders.

    I predicted them to lose to the Vikings and get blown out by Philly, I think.

    So overall, I'm 3-1.

    If they pull out a win in Washington, I will admit that...something has changed.

    Kiss O' Death...Lions/Skins nat. TV game. Sorry Lions you're not ready for prime time.
    let's see Skins beat Eagles 20 -12 in Philly. Eagles beat Lions 56 -21. Skins should beat Lions 50 -20* ...*due to time constraint.

    Same old story with the D. They are just getting DOMINATED. No pressure on the QB, poor tackling and horrible coverage.

    Washington is owning the time of possession. They have already had the ball for 11 minutes MORE than the Lions have and it's only the 2nd Q. If this keeps up the D will be dead by the 2nd half.

    Same old story for the Oline as well. Washington is only rushing 4 and dropping 7 into coverage but are still getting crazy pressure on Kitna.

    Martz is even using the shotgun (something he doesn't like to use) and having TEs stay in to block and the Skins are STILL knocking Kitna around like a rag doll.

    On a 3 step drop, Kitna has at least 1 if not 2 or 3 Skins right in his face by the time his foot hits the field for the 3rd time. That is just inexcusable.

    Please tell me that I'm not the only one watching this? The Skins are running THROUGH our players. Did you just see Kennedy get owned by Sellers? Then on the very next play, Betts carried 3 of our defenders for about 6 yards.

    What about the defense? The QB is 16-19. Not good either.

    Washington misses a field goal. This Lions do have nine lives.

    What a difference Kevin Jones makes to our running game. He is clearly the best back we have.

    That was a very un-Martz like drive. About 6 running plays to 1 pass. I'm glad he did it though instead of stubbornly sticking to the pass when the Skins were daring them to run. I wish we could have come away with 7 from that drive, but hopefully the 3 points and the rest for the D will get things turned around.

    Skins up 14-3.
