What's the Bears' cap situation like next season? You seem quite concerned about CHI locking him up...have there been problems with negotiations regarding him in the past?



There's a reason we refer to the ownership as the "McCheapskis".


Most recent article via google was : http://blogs.nfl.com...r-all-32-teams/

We have more than enough cap room to sign Forte, and then buy another Julius Peppers if we really wanted to. 19.3, given the team we currently have.


I just don't want us to squander a great player at the expense of some $ which would be EASILY made up in Merch sales. I honestly think Forte has the upside of at least Marshall Faulk, if not...His Sweetness.

Which Stafford is the real Stafford? Because the first 4 drives he was awful, but after that he was magnificent.

Glad we found a running game in our former bust, Kevin Smith.

Still gotta be a lot better but we desperately needed that win.

I was at the game yesterday. Hell of a game to go to. I was pretty pissed for the first quarter or so but it was exciting.

So I guess the big question is whether or not we can beat the Packers on Thanksgiving.

This is a huge game, which honestly makes me nervous. I have given up on the Lions taking the division. I think that is the Packers' to lose, and I don't think they will. With the injury to Cutler, I have new hope for the Lions' chances making it as a wildcard team.

Even so, beating the undefeated Pack would be a great boost both in the standings and in our confidence.

I'm not worried about beating the Packers for the division. It's their division title. I want to beat them just to beat them. To get back that swagger and confidence that has been lost.

What a ridiculous crock of s***. Asking the crowd for quiet? This isn't golf.

If I remember correctly, that was the game that Reggie Brown was paralyzed.

That is unbelievable. I can't believe they actually did that. Hopefully Ford Field is that loud on Thursday and the refs have to do the same. It won't help this time around though.

I don't remember if it was that game or another where they got penalized for being "too loud". I remember my dad sitting in his chair saying, "Just shut up until he gets the play almost off." The Old Coach didn't put up with rule-breaking, but he thought it was a stupid rule.

Lions are my dark horse to win the North. 10-6, maybe 11-5.


Looks my North prediction won't happen, but the overall record still can. I like 10-6- that includes losing to the Saints and Pack, but I see New Orleans as a tossup.

Lions really beat themselves today. Great first half with a frustrating result followed by an implosion. I'm all for the Lions having swagger and attitude, but they really killed themselves today.

If not for two interceptions, we could have been leading at the half. Once we got behind, we lost it. We're supposed to be a come-from-behind team, so I really wasn't worried at halftime, but in the second half the offense looked like a bunch of rookies.

This is not to say that the Packers didn't earn their win. They certainly did. I certainly give them full credit. I would have liked to have seen a more cohesive effort from the Lions in the second half.

Now its looking like it will be 2 games for Suh rather than the earlier report of being a minimum of 2. Has anyone heard otherwise?
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

I've heard rumour that it will be two games.

Vikes-fan bf is delighted that the Lions and Vikes face each other during what he has dubbed the "Suh-spension".

This is pretty much exactly what everyone thought would happen. I love his fire and tenacity, but he's gotta learn to keep it between the whistles.

As for the game Thursday? Let's not talk about that.

We better get this thing righted soon, or it's no playoffs and a poor draft spot for the Lions.
