No Lions today. Favre coming back to Lambeau will be a good game.

Meant to post this awhile ago. Took in my 1st ever NFL game (Eagles/Lions). What a great game. Nobody wanted to go with me, so I made the drive down, got parking for $10 near Ford Field. About 15 minutes before game time I was approached and sold a $85 (face value) ticket for $20.

Turned out to be pretty good seats (goal line, 38th row).

Vick played a pretty impressive game.

The Detroit Pride relegated to the stands.

With the Lions down 17, and with about 6 minutes to go, fans started streaming out, but due to years of watching CFL football, I figured you never know what could happen.

Lions recovering the onside kick:


It was too bad they went 4 and out to start the series. Overall a really good 1st game.

Lions win an ugly game over the Skins, 37-25. A lot of mistakes and missed opportunities, but down in the 4th quarter, the Lions didn't crumble and actually rose to make the big plays. Suh and Calvin with monster games. For once, we win a game because of our defense. Can't remember the last time I said that.

I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

I was listening to the game at work - I was pretty surprised to hear that McNabb was benched, then lol'd when Grossman fumbled his first snap leading to a Lions touchdown.

They had it and threw that game away. Drew Stanton throwing a pass on 3rd down when running the clock was the most important thing! And now Stafford is hurt again? Damnit! You sucked me in Lions! You've done it to me again!

Wow - I rarely watch the Lions since I am out of marker and they are rarely on national tv. I only tune in on Thanksgiving each year for the annual holiday loss...

They cut to the game late today however. Only the Lions can lose late the in 4th quarter up by 10 pts.

Kicker hurt, leading to missed extra point, fragile QB goes out again, backup incapable of achieving a first down, clock mismanagement, stupid personal foul, bad luck on the coin toss....

This team is the definition of cursed....the Lions saga continues....
New season, New start! May the force be with the Wings this time!

Watching the game with my dad, we heard the commentators talk about a Jets comeback. He said, "There's 10 minutes left in the game, that won't happen." I was quick to point out that if any team could blow it, it's the Lions. After the final play, all I could do was give him a facepalm expression.

Stafford is supposedly out with a Grade 3 separation on the same shoulder he hurt earlier this season, of course that's a rumor since Schwartz and company are being tight lipped about it. I wonder if he was ever fully healed? When he was taken out he didn't take off his uniform or anythinglike he did when he got his Grade 2 separation; just slipped an ice pack under his shoulder pad. The way everyone's talking about his injury, he's just really sore and could be back perhaps by the Dallas game.

Drew Stanton will most likely start this weekend against the Bills, so all my State friends will be happy to see what he can do. He did O.K. when he came in for Hill, and this matchup won't be bad for him. As long as he manages the game and uses his legs, we should be able to win this one.

Man this season's been frustrating. I mean I know coming into the season my expectations were only 6-7 wins, but in hindsight if we weren't screwed over in week 1, stopped Green Bay's winning drive in week 4, and if the coaches didn't blow the game against the Jets, we'd be 5-3 with a very good opportunity to improve to 7-3 against Buffalo and Dallas.

But that's what you get with an inexperienced team. One good positive to look at is we finally have very good talent, so this season is a learning curve for all of our young players and coaches. If we keep up our good drafting, we'll be considered division threats next season. Well, my expectation at least will be division favorites.

Wins against Buffalo and Dallas will ease my frustrations a bit. Do I expect it? Not at all. But it would be nice.

All is lost. I think that after 30+ years of watching/following Lions football that I'm officially done w/this team. What can they do that they haven't done 10 times already?

That was the Lions we all know and love. It didn't hurt me nearly as much as the Jets game did though. I'm used to Lions taking a collective dump at midfield for 60 minutes.
