    i thought garcia looked terrible in preseason trying to do too much, but he looked great today. he showed that if your passes are on target you don't necessarily need sweet receivers, and also showed that the quarterback was a large part of the offensive problem.

    Garcia did what he has always done. Make plays.

    I just wonder how long they can keep this up with the walking wounded.

    WRs

    [strike]1. R. Williams[/strike]
    [strike]2. C. Rogers[/strike]
    [strike]3. K. Johnson[/strike]
    4. M. Williams
    [strike]5. Eddie Drummond[/strike]
    6. Scotty Vines
    7. Glen Martinez

    It would be nice if Mooch and the offensive idiot brigade could

    A) Get a play in on time in the second half
    B) Find a way to passblock a 3 man rush
    C) Make an attempt to score after the 2 minute warning

    I just worry that wins like this are fool's gold. The Browns are terrible (both sides of the ball) and we only won by 3. In fact, we probably would have lost if not for the 3 picks or Garcia's hustle to the end zone.

    I don't think this will work against Dallas, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, or Cincinnati. All teams we have yet to play...

    This team needs a swift kick in the arse.

    It was a road win and probably one we should have won. If you look at the league DEE is dominant. There's only 4 or 5 teams that can average 23 pts per game. Points are way down.

    Tough game a'comin'


    This is precisely why next week's game against the Bears at home is a BIG MUST WIN. Two 3-3 teams fighting for NFC North supremacy. :Cry:

    I think "NFC North" and "supremacy" are probably two words that shouldn't be used in the same sentence together :P

    Sorry guys but...

    Yes it is fool's gold and no it will not work against the teams mentioned above. Garcia did ok, but if Cleveland had won everyone would be calling for Garcias head. Come on, we've seen this show before. They won 13-10 against a bad team. They are banged up with over half the season remaining. Enjoy any successes they may give you but don't get your hopes too high for the future.

    Brownies only got like 11 first downs. Man, they are worse than we are. Joel could have won this one. The Brownies pass rush must have been weak too cause Jeff got to set his feet a couple of times. I still contend the Oline decides who will play QB. If they don't have the QBs back the QB gets kilt. Look for the Oline to impress against the Bears. Lions 22 Bears 11. Orton gets what we failed to give him first time- turf facial!!!

    I Think Not

    Garcia played decent and yes the Oline responded as if they had lost all faith in Joey.But they played a worse team than the one we root for and Garcia made some plays but still overthrew and made Joey looking mistakes.Good scramble for TD and kept some plays alive.

    I think this is his week to shine the Bears D should light him up.If it doesn't I'll chalk it up to the Lions extending my hopes for a playoff berth another week as they have done forever as I can remember.Our D is banged to hell also,revisit the score when we played them in Chi-town.

    We should probably lose the next game.

    That being said...

    Big D

    The bears can play some Dee but they get nothing at Ford F. Before Bly was lost we lead the league in picks. Guys gotta step up. Orton won't be able to audible not with 66k psycho Lion fans just whooping it up. We need to run the ball and let the Bears mess up. I.E. don't force anything.
