sounds like they played better up front and got some pressure.  thats a good sign.  just need to get stafford back to himself again and the offense should be ok.

i read they benched lawson but teez was so bad they had to bring him back.  #quindraftpicks

how did the rookie safety look? maybe quin should trade all his second round picks for third round picks?

The rookie safety had what could of been a game winning INT had Diggs not held completely away from the ball. I think the pressure was more the coverage than the front 7 getting pressure.

it was an entertaining game.

 

Stafford missed 3 TDs.   The D line got some pressure, Galloday had a great TD play.  #40 davis is flipping horrible.  The secondary plays too soft.  And Riddick Dropped 2 game extending passes... 

They fought hard.  I think they Beat NE.

a couple thoughts having read some stuff and watched some highlights and the last 2 minutes in a bar full of drunk broncos fans.

i dont think the niners are that good.

our #2 cb appears to be a very large problem.

this is playing out like a year when the lions finish thr year with a couple meaningless wins that take them from picking in the top 5 to picking 15th.

Stolen interception stolen punt return also that was a safety early in the game. While the Lions did their own mistakes its obvious the officials were wearing 49er jerseys.

they had nothing to do it with - Lions got a couple ticky tack calls at the end of the game too

They were an embarrassment in every phase of the game... yet Stafford, Tate, Jones, and Golladay had enough natural talent to get them within reach. 

Patricia has made them worse all across the board. Even special teams used to be a strength. Today they gave up multiple long returns, and had multiple penalties on their own returns. They look amateurish.

With all the awfulness surrounding Michigan sports, it is finally paying off being a leafs fan.  Some hope somewhere.   

I always wonder what it would have been like to grow up a Boston sports fan.   Born in 85 and not being a wings fan the only championship I’ve seen is the 04 pistons.  I love the 04 pistons.

Stafford's wife seems annoying. Apparently she approves of Blount's shove even though the hit on Stafford was legal and nothing malicious. Maybe this is why Stafford is struggling.

His wife has always been obnoxious even back when she was just his girlfriend.

A good incompletion there.   But if they call this a catch then they run 10 seconds off the clock, don't they?   LOL

I was actually thinking the same thing... if it's ruled a catch then the Lions lose 10 seconds because the refs were wrong... again.

Can't believe they still have that rule.  You can't penalize a team for a ref's mistake.  I can understand if a team threw a red flag during the game, but they can't throw a red one in the last 2 minutes.       As Les Nessman says  "Oh Herb, it's all so sordid".

I know it is early, but Jim Caldwell doesn't look so bad after all.

Caldwell did everything right except manage games.   Some inexplicable play calls/decisions........That was it.  If he was a better game manager they probably make the playoffs at least one more time and probably win a division.     That Aaron Rodgers Hail Mary defense was a fireable offense on it's own.

The rule isn’t that bad. You maybe lose a couple more seconds, but you also get the benefit of getting everyone lined up and with plenty of time to regroup and call a play with everyone on the same page. 

The lions had a couple receptions in the middle of the field during the hurry up offense at the end right? How many seconds ran off then?

having the free timeout isn’t nothing. If that was meaningless you’d never see a team spike the ball. 

The fact that they were better off with an incompletion says more about the decision making on that play call that it does about the rule that eats time. The play itself was going to eat time.

I wonder if Stafford is doing the 3am newborn duties.  That's what he looks like.  Looks like one of those new fathers walking around the office like a zombie because he got no sleep.

Caldwell excelled in managing his staff and players.

He did not excel in game strategy.

Maybe someone who understands the safety rule better than I do can explain why the Lions didn't get 2 points late in the 1st half when there was a penalty against the 49ers.  I believe the 49ers snapped the ball at their own 1 or 2. Was the infraction (I forget, unnecessary roughness) not in the end zone?  If the penalty instead had been intentional grounding, would that have been a safety? Or only a safety if tackled in the end zone?

What's annoying about liking someone for standing up for your husband?  Sure the penalty sucked for the Lions, but this just seems like a pretty standard human reaction to me, and she merely shared it on her Instagram story as far as I know?

I've already checked out of caring about wins and losses this year so I was just glad someone on the team showed any sort of passion, so that could be why I'm missing it...
