I think an announcer just called Lions a winning football team! In my entire life, I've never heard that

Eff those announcers. They didnt give us a chance. All i heard prior to the game was how the Chargers were now healthy and Gates, Jackson et all were going to do this that and some more. Well, we shut them down...HARD! Eff you Stu Jackson, A quadruple Eff you to those empty vassels on ESPN and the NFL network for talking without engaging their already tiny brains. \now they are giving Staff his well deserved kudos...bastards. I thought Tebow was the messiah..lol. I am so elated its not funny. Merry xmas. We are in the playoffs you guys...woohooooooo

The last home game of the season and a playoff clincher.

And the Chargers were spanked.

4-0 against the AFC West.

No other team did that this year.

Haven't had time until today to look at the stats of the Lions/Chargers game.

The Lions were penalized 3 times for 8 yards.

That's huge.

I think Suh's suspension may have been the needed wake-up call for this team. The Lions were killing themselves with penalties which will take down the most talented teams. Hope they are committed to smart football here on out.

OK Lions' fans, here we go.....

We haven't won at Lambeau for 20 years and I think it's time to break that streak. The Packers have wrapped up everything they needed to so far and the Detroiters need a win to seal the 5th seed.

If the Lions win, they will face the winner of the Cowboys/Giants game and if they lose........?

49ers or Saints.

I feel different this year. We're actually in the playoffs.

I realize we'll prob'ly be knocked out early but it's been fun.

It might be fun watching a Lions-49ers rematch.

Really though.....

A Dallas spanking would be more fun.

First thing's first.

Win at Lambeau.

There must be an error in your research, is what went thru my head when I read this. Then I checked for myself. The glory days of '91 are a long time ago. It's time for a win up in the Frozen Tundra.

Win or lose, though, I think this team can make waves in the playoffs.

Possible, can't ever count out a lower seed team, Packers were the 6th seed last year. Regardless, Lions have done well this year and should for the next years, too.

Game Sunday will be interesting with the storm warnings, not much snow, but plenty of wind!

McCarthy and Rodgers both have high praise for Stafford, Rodgers had quite a bit to say, which was nice. He knows what it is like to be young and under the radar, everyone else getting the attention.

Here's to a great game, I do hope they do well, team and Detroit deserve it. Of course, I still want Packers in the SB!
