No other team does the same thing year after year regardless of who is running the team.  If the lions have a chance to put a game away they will always go run run incomplete pass. No OC will ever be aggressive if they coach the lions. 

It was run, run interception. Stafford could have, you know, not thrown an interception or actually completed a pass. Peterson was also averaging 8 yards per carry at that point.

Bad teams are going to lose to bad teams.  This is a bad team.  Get used to it.

We've been used it to our entire lives outside of any 80+ year old folks who might be posting here.

Why invest this time?  I know the outcome is always the same.  I've done a lot of mitigation...only watch on time shift, only listen when not on TV (don't go anywhere to watch them).

the problem was stafford missing an open ceephus on second down, taking a bad sack that led to the 55 yard field goal, then firing a ball late into double coverage.  you cant blame that on play calling.  you blame it on stafford.

and a defense that cant stop mitch trubisky.

Doesn't mean much coming from the guy who wanted Connor Cook instead.

I'm looking at their schedule now and trying to find more than 4-5 wins if this is how they're going to look.

I’m down for 1-15 and a full reboot, again.

If that's get us a new regime AND a new QB, then please give it to me. I don't see what holding on to Stafford through another rebuild gets us at this point. You know Tua is going to be a stud now.

Stafford, when all is said and done, won the game for them and Swift dropped it.

Because you're post is leaving off the 3 Interceptions, fumble at the goal line, and 1st half where they were in the redzone 5 times and came away with 9 points. 😄

Tua couldn't even start over Fitzpatrick who threw 0 TD and 3 INTs. 

Tua is a graduated star now because we passed on him.

So, any thought on Jamie Collins getting ejected?  I mean, to me it was pretty obvious what he was trying to do.  I don't *think* he was trying to make contact with the ref, but regardless he did and so I think the penalty is justified.  But ejection?  That seems pretty extreme.

Like Matt Stafford? 12 years and you've won nothing with him. But sure, let's rebuild a third time around him. Third times a charm right?

Connor Cook wasn't even good enough to earn the starting QB job in the XFL.

Stafford is a star. I hope he gets cut at the end of the year and ends up on a team like New England where he can win instead of with this ****ty fanbase that blames this inept team on him. I would have thought people would have realized his value after they went 0-8 without him but I guess not.

doesnt matter.  thats the rule.

it was a completely stupid unnecessary play that cost the lions one of their best defensive players and may get him suspended for multiple games.
