Can't run.....can't stop the run. And you're not going to beat the Vikings when they go up 17 points early. I can think of three plays that gave the Lions an opportunity to win this game, and they missed Every. Single. Opportunity.

Same old story. Can't beat the good teams.

Detroit's Silverdome still standing after implosion attempt - CNN

Now, I'm no demolitions expert. But it seems to me that the 'when' is a rather critical factor here.

I am a demolitions expert and no matter what you calculate as the necessary amount of explosives to use, double it and then double again for good measure...KABLOOEY!

The Lions are the ones that successfully imploded today ( most popular joke in Motown), and prob'ly shooda forfeited after the first half. Need to protect our QB investment for next year.

X-rays are negative! No break and Stafford will be ready to play on Sunday. Sitting at 6-6 and there's still some life if they can get their act together.

Green needs to start at RB next week. O-line needs to step up in a huge way. Golden Tate called the line out (but did so respectably).

Saw a blurb this a.m. about Caldwell, didn't they give him an extension? There are stories floating he could be gone?

Caldwell was extended as a formality. No team wants a lame duck coach for an entire season. Fans and media are calling for his head. Too many boneheaded decisions. Carolina put the Lions in a bigger hole. If Quinn is calling the shots I think Caldwell is gone. .
