ya'll should be 0 and 4 right now Veno. You know this. I won't front, you've lost to decent teams but you must be worried. Even you have to admit your squad looks a.ss so far...
I'm not gonna deny that we've played like sh*t. We absolutely have.. But "should be 0 and 4"?, 3 close losses means we could just as easily be 3-1 bisc (say Shaun Hill converts on 4th and .004 yards), or one Lion player gets an angle on the punt returner yesterday and makes the tackle. In that case we're staring down at the rest of the division. Or at least 2-2 is very feasible. Surely we miss Jahvid Best's big play ability and Delmas making the plays that the rest of our p!ss poor secondary doesn't.. He was damn sure a big reason we beat you last year at Ford and got off to the 5-0 start. But I'm not in the business of using injury excuses to justify poor performance, I leave that to other fanbases in the NFC North
Fact is there is simply no excuse for a team with an offense as potent as the Lions and such a talented D-line to be playing this sh*tty.The Tennessee game should have been a gimmie. Minny's turning the corner so I'll give them credit even if Swaggy P had nothing to do with the win
Ever since 5-0, our execution has been poor and our discipline (all phases of the game, + all the off the field issues) have been non-existent. Starts with head coaching. I seem to be the only Lions fan who's been calling for Schwartz's head since shortly after the San Fran game last year
. With all the good coaches who've "retired" and gone to commentary / booth analysis, if we continue to drop winnable games we need to make a move on somebody respectable, someone like a Gruden or Cohwer or Mangini. Hell I'll take Billlick if the players will respect him.
Matrix is a better man than I am. I'm still going to talk a bit of sh*t and laugh at your misfortunes this season, even if we do suck. The difference is I'll be laughing at my own team just as hard if not harder.
Maybe I should hit up ronnie and change my username to banga2 for the season
