Oh my gawd....
Funny how the Lions were ahead 23-13 after the half.
Bout as funny as putting lipstick on a pig.
You knew that ugly was just around the corner.
I saw a team play hasd today, sure we mostly play Chi. tough. I saw Orlov getting protection and making throws. Still a couple bad misstakes too. If you wanted progress I saw it. Jags couldn't beat Bengals in Cin. I think we win at home next Sunday.
The Lions give up a league leading 5.1 yards per carry.
That's remarkable considering that Barry Sanders averaged
only 5.0 yards per carry during his career.
Lions opposing QBs have a passer rating of 109.5.
Generally speaking, a 109.5 passer rating by ONE
QB during the season makes him a lock for the MVP award.
I'm sure glad that Marenilli hired his relative to be our
No wonder we're losing. It's like every team has Barry Sanders and Steve Young.
Nemo, you know I called all of this. The minute Sgt. Slaughter signed dingleberry, it was the gong show.
some Marenilli quotes after each loss...As listed in the FP...
GAME 1, 34-21 loss to Atlanta: "The way I look at it, and I want to watch more film this week. I think the main problem was our tackling.”
GAME 2, 48-25 loss to Green Bay: "We fought to get back in the game, and I congratulated them on that point. But this league's about winning, and in crunch time in the fourth quarter, you have to execute and do your job, and that's when money players step up and make plays."
GAME 3, 31-13 loss to San Francisco: "It's just not good football.”
GAME 4, 34-7 loss to Chicago: "Nothing's good.”
GAME 5, 12-10 loss to Minnesota: “Those type of games, you have to win. You fight, but you fight to win."
GAME 6, 28-21 loss to Houston: "When you don't execute the details, you pay for it."
GAME 7, 25-17 loss to Washington: “I'm coaching the dog out of them. ... We're just not getting it done on Sunday."
GAME 8, 27-23 loss to Chicago: “I owe those men every opportunity to win a game, to do whatever it takes, to find whatever player's out there. … I owe them to get the very best players in here that we can get to give us a chance in the second half of the season to get something going, and that's what I'm going to do.”
GAME 9, 38-14 loss to Jacksonville: “You're in this dark tunnel and you've got no way out. You're waiting for light, and you see that light, what do you do? What do you do? You start digging and getting out. … I've always believed you stay in the tunnel and you keep digging when you expect no light. You have the same faith when you expect no light. You have the same belief in what you're doing when you expect no light. ... It's dark and I'm going to dig through. My shovel is sharp and my pick is sharp and my will is outstanding."
GAME 10, 31-22 loss to Carolina: "I think I’m in a leadership role, and I’m leading these men. That’s my job. My job is to believe in men and lead them and encourage them and show them how.”
How about this ?
Send em over to Dre to cheer for awhile
he hasn't gone completely delusional
Order your shirts today...
Los Angeles take the Lions
I love it
We don't need no stinkin Lions. We already have the three loser teams in California now that gave a combined record of 9 and 21.
Besides we have a semi-pro team here that could probably beat the Lions
Damn....Im a fan
I am not sure how long I was in the shower this morning (I was by myself), but when I got in the Lions were up 17-0, when I stepped out they were down 21-17,
wtf happen?? I knew they would probably blow it by games end, but surrender the lead as fast as it happen?? At least the other bad team down the road managed three victories this year.
Not only that our chances of two teams with perfect records playing on Turkey day was ruined when the Jets beat the Titans, so no 11-0 vs 0-11.
lmao I love how you clarify that up front.
In Fantasy if I cut a guy because he is playing poorly the next week he plays great.
So I will sacrifice Megatron in order to get a win. He should score about 3 TDs.
Remember Jeff Garcia...he did it Dre.
Cpep can't throw for 100 yd with out a pick.
I'm assuming you are kidding.
Somebody (I won't mention names)pulled that crap last year after they were already out of it. Needless to say it screwed over at least one person who was actually playing for something.
In all likelihood, I'm out of it this year. But let's not screw it up for others. Again, maybe you were kidding...
I'm not kidding.
Cool. The Commissioner will prevent anyone from picking him up. I'll also suggest you get banned next year.:icon_evil:
Oh, and just wait until you see my underdog choices in the "picks game" for the remainder of the season... ;) I'm thinking weekly winners like the Lions, Rams, Bengals...
LaDre was Caulking, and not talkin.
The Lions weren't blockin, which isn't shockin.
(love the eyebrow guy)
