Well, that's three straight wins since we fired Vince Lombardi's grandson. A young coach comes out of nowhere to be promoted to offensive coordinator and our gunslinger of a quarterback puts on a helluva show on national TV, Thanksgiving Day......no less.


Pass protection has been VERY good through these three games, and I've noticed that the play calling hasn't been so "conservative." I like the way the Lions are using Theo Riddick out of the backfield as a receiver.


I saw some "guts" from the defense lately, and I think the Lions will do well in the coming years to build around that. Still missing Mr. Suh.....


Still have three games left vs. division opponents....SPOILER ALERT.....


Martha Firestone Ford lit a fire under these guys' butts.

Down 20 - 0, GB fumbled on the Lions' 8 yard line. They got lucky and recovered in the end zone for a TD.

Lions up 20 - 7, Stafford fumbled and GB recovered. They quickly scored. 20 - 14.

Lions up 23 -21, and GB tries Ye Olde lateral 'til you die play with no time left. Rodgers ends up with the ball and gets tackled, but the Lions get called for a facemask.

One more chance for a Hail Mary.

The chance was successful.

A face mask that didn't happen.

I know how it feels, when you think you lose a game on a call! Golden Tate was on the Seahawks during the Fail Mary! His helmet was turned you could see him pull his head!

You keep focusing on a face mask that was questionable instead of a complete breakdown in coverage on a last ditch hail mary, not to mention squandering a 20 point lead with less than 20 minutes to play.....

Just sayin'....

I am more focusing on the fact that a penalty like that cant be reviewed. Every play should be reviewable.

Fans that cry about penalties are usually fans of crappy teams.

You're more proof of that.

I've watched it again, too, his thumb was in the facemask, the helmet moved, went down, sorry but the refs are going to call it.
