Four years ago when the Lions were at Minnesota it was the worst TV announcing I'd ever heard. The play by play guy and color commentator couldn't figure out who played for which team. They mis-identified players AND coaches both. Things like George Caldwell instead of Jim Caldwell. Couldn't tell the first down indicator from the score. Instead of Matt Asiata they called him Matt Asiago and couldn't figure out the difference between a 7 yard gain and a 12 yard gain and even once said someone made it to the 54 yard line. It was a total disaster. People pointed it out and the announcer went nuts on social media and started f-bombing his critics. He never called another game, Fox fired him. Does anyone remember that. It was annoying at first but then became entertainingly bad, like a Mariah Carey movie.

Lions healthier today than Vikes. 

But looks like Sam Martin bruised his ego on the kickoff.

This D is a pathetic bunch. The D guru needs more time I guess

Every play the Lions have multiple defenders who can't possibly cover someone 1 on 1, and they have no elite pass rushers. I don't think coaching is going to fix that.

He didn't on that last drive. I don't think any of the Lions were playing actually. Just watching

Big play by Harrison on that 2nd down run, if the Lions had any defensive ends who could hold up the edge they might have a shot to become a decent run d

Could this announcer be any more clueless? What kind of moron is broadcasting a game without doing any basic research to know that the trade had nothing to do with this year's salary cap

important game for the lions.  if theyre going to live up to TP's preseason declaration that this is an 11 win roster, theyre going to have to win today.
