    Game 10 Carolina Panters @ Detroit Lions. It's Cat-Tastic!

    Yes, they will get totally blown out. And hurt, emotionally and physically.

    Well, Detroit gets several extra hours off on a short week. But do we even have a chance without a healthy KJ?

    I agree, I would much rather see them win, at any time. I mean, have you seen some of those picks, through the years? While I think tanking is cheating and ensures a losing mentality, I can see how a team that knows how to draft and develop players so they can win tanking. It sure would make a mockery of late season games.

    The Lions only won this game because a) a kicker missing an extra point. And b) because Carolina played flat, down to our level. The Lions only chance in games is teams looking past us.

    If this game is the start of a 7 game winning streak, I'm happy. If we're just going to lose our next 3 or 4, this is actually a loss. I saw an article a couple of years ago that showed that teams finishing in the middle of the league just stayed there by never being quite bad enough to get some top picks. Even though you could give Detroit the top pick every single year and they would still suck.

    If you're going to call a play, block. This isn't rocket science

    Bad kickers could be the difference of about 5 to 7 spots in the draft for the Lions.

    Carolina looking past the Lions? That's the only reason I can see this game even being close. Oh, and the Lions being able to run the ball and not turning the ball over.

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

    But the Lions were a great, money making, business decision. They would have made just as much, or probably more, if they had a couple of championships. But their value has soared so high, it was a great business decision. So the Ford's losers? No, the fans are the losers, suffering through season after season of losing. Edit..according to this site, from 2014, Ford paid 4 million for the Lions in 1964. They are now worth over a billion dollars. https://www.thephinsider.com/2014/6/10/5796114/purchase-price-and-current-value-of-each-nfl-franchise

    You make excellent points. But is there any way to get out of his contract? Is there any plans to go after a QB to take his place? I think we may be stuck with him for the next several seasons.

    I did because he's on my FF team. As is Trubsky. Yes, I'm winning big. Oh, and thanks to Eric Ebron.

    Setting your sites a little high here. If history is any indication, Quin still has 3 or 4 head coaches, or 7 years, to go. Don't forget, he inherited Caldwell.

    I agree.

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

    Well, to a certain point the offense can be blamed for some things. Not moving the ball, constantly giving the ball back and putting pressure on our defense. A weak defense at that. Have a few 8 minute drives ending in touchdowns and these games may be played out differently. And since Matt is the QB and has been here forever, much of the offensive problems appear to be his responsibility. Even though, IMO, Jim Bob Cooter is much more to blame. Stafford is not getting the necessary time for these time consuming routes the receivers are taking. He doesn't have the luxury of waiting for receivers to get open. So...stop it. Run some 3 drop quick slants. Some misdirection plays. These are all adjustments that need to be made on the fly. What other teams do between drives takes us 2 weeks, and we still get it wrong. Matthew Stafford is not the main problem. Cooter's play calling is a much bigger problem, IMO. But the way I understand it, Stafford lobbied to keep Jim Bob. What a mess.
