The Lions are killing me


Last week, I wasn't really expecting a win heading into the weekend. But the Lions really put on a show. They just couldn't hold on when they lost their starting quarterback. I don't think they had more than 3 first downs without him. And without him, they went from a resounding win against a good Jets team to a loss that stung from the hope that was dashed.

Fast forward to this weekend where I though that they had a chance to put together a win on the road (it has been a few years since we had one of those) but alas they still couldn't put it together till the very end but then it was too little, too late. I was shocked to listen and hear what a conservative game plan they had put together. Was it that Shaun Hill was just back from a broken arm or what, but it felt like they could have moved the ball if only they risked some shots down the field.

Maybe next week will be better.
