    2019 NFL Draft Thread

    My one takeaway from that Dallas game wasn't the Brandon Pettigrew PI. It was the gutless punt on 4th down

    2019 NFL Draft Thread

    It is infuriating. And we've all said it, many times: it starts at the top. The level of dysfunction in that organization going back so many decades just dumbfounds me. For a sports franchise to be this bad for so long seems almost inconceivable, and it just never changes. How are the lights on over there?

    Game 9 Detroit @ Chicago. The City of Big Shoulder Pads

    How many of you tuned in to tonight's game to watch Golden Tate's Philly debut? Don't lie πŸ˜€

    Game 9 Detroit @ Chicago. The City of Big Shoulder Pads

    Well that's it for me. Sunny and 70 outside. Got better things to do...

    Game 9 Detroit @ Chicago. The City of Big Shoulder Pads

    This beatdown is pretty much taking place in the trenches. Both sides of the ball. Quinn said 3 years ago he wanted to build this team from the lines. 3 years later...

    Lions at Bear pre-game discussion

    I remember that '83 draft. Lions had a top-rated defense and rushing attack. They were horrid at QB with Danielson/Hipple. It wasn't just a need, it was potentially a missing piece. Both Marino and Jim Kelly were available, but yeah... they took James Jones. Before long they were a 4-win team. Next move: Hire Darryl β€œWhat does a guy have to do to get fired around here?” Rogers. Before Matt Millen, there was Russ Thomas. Millen was likely the most hated GM by fans, but no GM was ever hated more by players than Thomas. His contract battles were notoriously toxic. People forget the Lions *almost* didn't sign Barry as a rookie – it went down to the wire. Thomas didn't want to pay him. Like he always did, Ford just stood by and watched all this happen. Anyway, whatever... I still watch the games. It's in my DNA I guess

    Lions at Bear pre-game discussion

    No real mystery actually. Just decades of bad drafting, bad coaching and bad ownership
  8. We've all seen Stafford play a lot better. Viking's D is good. Just getting beat by a better team today. Like last week
  9. Seems like Stafford's been avoiding bad decisions all game. And then he does that
  10. Yeah but in the past he'd still gunsling it under pressure. He's been tentative all game. Either he's afraid of throwing a pic, or everyone really is covered. You can see the whole field since you're there – is the coverage really that good?
  11. Stafford seems gun shy today. Doesn't want to let go of the ball or even throw it away. Just takes the sack
  12. 17-6. Pretty much going as expected
  13. I'd like to see some screen plays to Johnson. That tends to slow down a pass rush
  14. He didn't on that last drive. I don't think any of the Lions were playing actually. Just watching
