Well, I am very proud of the Lions today. Reggie Bush panned out exactly like I thought he would when I heard the news. I think this is going to be a big year for the Lions.

They really didn't look weak anywhere, and I think Calvin Johnson is going to be seeing more action this year because teams are going to start seeing just what a threat Reggie Bush can be (not to mention the other guys).

They do however need to work on STUPID penalties, this has been going on for way too long.

I think we actually found a tight end in Fauria.

Suh got flagged for a bad block (rightfully so), but the league will probably suspend him (unrightfully so).

Penalties killed the Lions vs. the Cards.

Akers showed why he was cut last year.

I really dig Joique Bell but if there is no Reggie Bush, then there is no running game.

The defensive backfield is slightly better than last year.

Slightly better than "sucks".......still sucks.

8 more losses until doomsday for Coach Schwartz ......

With Bush, it feels like how it was with Best. Once he's out of the game, the offense is missing that piece they need to keep rolling. Not quite sure what Detroit was doing before the end of the first half, running the ball aimlessly. Either grow some balls and throw it down the field, or take a knee and head to the locker room.

Impressions after week two? Same Ol' Lions. The Vikings don't appear to be particularly good, so it could have given false hope for the rest of the season. I'm really hoping that's not the case, but I fear it might be.

The Lions better come with their helmets strapped on for Washington, this is a big game for them. An 0-3 start would almost kill their playoff chances. Lets stop with the dumb penalties, convert some third downs and get it going again boys.

I think the technical term is: bad.

Lions better win this one or they'll hear "same ole Lions".
Their strength: passing offense is the Redskins's weakness: pass defense, so there should be no excuses.
A running RG3 might be unleashed ... watch out!

Grats to the Lions for the big win in Washington to improve their record there to 1-21 all time.

The Lions SPANKED! SPANKED the Bears! Imagine what it would feel like to thump the Packers next Sunday.

Would be huge as they haven't won at Lambeau lately. According to the Milw. Journal Sentinel: The last time the Lions won in Wisconsin was Dec. 15, 1991, over 20 years ago! Wow!!!

Packers are beat up, if they don't have Clay Matthews, Casey Hayward back, could be a long day for them. Division games are always exciting! Here's to a good game (and, of course, I want a different outcome)!

Two thrillers in a row at home....one loss and one victory.

Four turnovers vs. Dallas and still win?

Well, when we have Megatron & Stafford playing I s'pose it's plausible.

Defense kept the Lions in the game but I really think the Cowboys gave it to the Lions with that holding call against them during Dallas' final possession. Basically, it gave the Lions 40 more precious seconds to go 80 yards.

Smart call by Schwartz.....declining the penalty.....

Even smarter was Stafford...surprised everyone.....even his teammates....with that gutsy sneak to tie it up.

Is Calvin Johnson the best receiver in the game?

Yes.

GB vs. Detroit on Thanksgiving. This is our Superbowl, Lions fans.

I'm just hoping this game has meaning; other than the Packers trying to seal up home field advantage for the playoffs.

Bye week next.

Then off to Soldier Field for a much needed road victory.
