My favorite, burger and a beer, however, don't think I could do 10 a.m. either! It is a noon game.

I could do a Wisconsin Brat at noon. This Yooper in Phoenix makes 'em on occasion. I did 'em on opening weekend.


I wouldn't bet against your Packers on Sunday.

It will be an interesting game, Packers are hard to figure. Defense looking good, offense, can't figure it out (and neither can they apparently)! I think Packers can win but nothing would surprise me.

It's a shame because Packer fans out here feel sorry for me and buy me beer.


And there's a lot of 'em.....
We're getting AZ @ BUF on FOX this Sunday. Initially, I thought AZ was playing in the afternoon and was hoping for a miracle. No dice. Back to the bar for me.

I'll catch the game on satellite radio. At least I'll get the "home feed." Just like the ole days from Pontiac.


Abdullah is on IR. We'll be sure to see more of young Mr. Washington Sunday. Not sure how long Ameer will be out.


Signed WR Aaron Dobson. Another FA who played with New England lately. If he does well, expect to say goodbye to Boldin.

Abdullah is out for at least 8 weeks. Ansah and Levy are also expected to be out. Only 2 active linebackers at the Wednesday practice and the Motor City Miracle phantom face mask ref is officiating the game. Bad omens abound. At least we one at the Frozen Tundra last season and killed that awful losing streak. It's not happening again this year.

We will see how Detroit does when taking on Green Bay in Lambeau this year.

I'm thinking Riddick is going to have a really good season this year. I'm thinking Jamaal Charles lite. A lot of passes out of the back field with room to run, but won't be able to create as many running plays for himself like Charles can.

No official word yet but the Lions are now planning on Abdullah being out for rest of the season.

Detroit Lions believe foot injury will force RB Ameer Abdullah to miss remainder of season

It sounds like Ansah is going to miss next week too. Not good.

I missed this article back in December of last year when published by ESPN. It was posted again today in the comments section of a Lions related site. Sometimes I have to wonder. Especially when I see the same officials making dubious calls against the same team that ends up having a huge impact on the final result.

Suspicions remain high about NFL's communication with referees - NFL Nation- ESPN

Call me biased but the Lions have been the victim of incompetent officiating these past few years. Process of the catch, the pass interference controversy in the playoffs, Seahawks swatting the ball out of the endzone, phantom facemask and now one of the most bizarre kickoff/punt penalties I've seen. All impacting the final result of games against opponents that make more money for the NFL.
