The way its going down this year is like this…


5 year anny of the 0-16 (we go 16-0)

2nd year with a Lion on the Madden cover BUT…

1st retired player to grace it (Barry/ reverse the curse)

We got this generations version of Barry (Reggie)

We got the best player in the league (Megatron)

The SB is in NY (great chance of snow/first SB played in snow)

If it's any year to take our first SB its this year.

The hidden blowout.

To me, the most interesting game of the day occurred in Detroit. I don't know that I've ever seen a team play as well as Detroit did on Sunday and come away with as little recognition to show for it. Detroit dominated Minnesota — a playoff team a year ago — at home, and all it has to show for it is an Adrian Peterson highlight-reel run.

That starts with the Lions' performance against Peterson, who torched them on the opening Minnesota play of the game for a 78-yard touchdown. Not good. Peterson later added a rushing and a receiving touchdown, each from four yards out, to give fantasy owners a mammoth day from the consensus top overall pick. Here's the thing: It wasn't all that great of a real-life day. The 78-yard run is obviously valuable, but scoring from four yards out isn't exactly a feat. And outside of that one lengthy run, the Lions absolutely shut Peterson down; his other 17 carries produced a total of 15 rushing yards. He caught all four of the passes thrown to him, but they only totaled 18 yards. The mortal version of Peterson was a boom-and-bust back, but this is that taken to an extreme. Minnesota only had one rushing first down outside of the two touchdowns, and Peterson had 13 carries for two yards or less, many of which came on first-and-10 or second-and-long.

And that created third-and-longs for Christian Ponder, which created disasters for the Vikings. Well, sorta. The Vikings were able to get away with a bunch because the Lions either shot themselves in the foot or shot their foot off altogether. They dropped at least one possible Ponder pick-six, went offside to nullify a strip-sack of Ponder, and had a pick-six wiped off the board by a Ndamukong Suh low block during the return.

The defense had a lucky day compared with the offense, which was brilliant before encountering an impossible bit of bad luck. On their first drive, the Lions drove the ball 58 yards to the Minnesota 13-yard line, only for a Calvin Johnson slant to be called a half-yard short of a first down. The Lions were then stuffed on second down, dropped a pass on third down, and bungled the ensuing field goal attempt. Then they gave up the Peterson touchdown. With the Vikings possessing all the momentum, the Lions again drove 65 yards down the field with ease, only for a Calvin Johnson touchdown to be nullified by the Calvin Johnson rule,10 leading the Lions to settle for a field goal. The next drive saw Tony Scheffler drop a likely touchdown inside the 5-yard line and a Joique Bell fourth-and-1 conversion overturned by a holding call, leading to another field goal.

It kept going. That Ponder pick-six that was called back for a low block? The Lions got the ball and promptly gave it back on a tipped interception. Detroit fumbled a snap on the next drive. Two drives later, Brandon Pettigrew (who held on that Bell fourth-and-1) fumbled the ball after a reception, only for Harrison Smith to fall on it before it trickled out of bounds. Then, when the Lions finally got it to the goal line, Bell dove over the pile at the 2-yard line and had the ball careen backward11 for a fumble that was recovered by the Vikings, only for replay to finally turn a call in Detroit's favor.

The second half wasn't much better. The Lions had another three touchdowns wiped off the board, with Megatron's second potential score of the day coming up a toe too far in the back of the end zone, while two Reggie Bush scores ruled as a touchdown on the field were called back because his knee was on the ground. In any case, the Lions came back to score touchdowns on those drives, and they actually forced a strip-sack of Ponder that came through. In all, the Lions celebrated eight touchdowns on Sunday and actually got to keep four of them, including this gorgeous middle screen to Bush for a 77-yard touchdown. The Lions were very aggressive moving Bush around the formation, splitting him out frequently as a receiver and designing plays to take advantage of his unique skill set. He did come out twice with finger and knee complaints, but Bush finished with 191 yards from scrimmage on 25 touches. He outplayed the league MVP on Sunday.

Was some of this sloppy play by the Lions that they need to correct? Sure. The holding penalties and the fumbles aren't going to fly if the Lions are to compete in 2013. Keep in mind, though, that the Lions had five drives of 50 yards or more, both ran the ball and threw the ball very effectively, and shut down the league's best player after one play. It was a quietly impressive performance, and one that will sneak under the radar as the Lions travel to Arizona to play the Cardinals in Week 2.

Week 2: Lions vs. Packers - The legend of Aaron Rodgers Starts Here



When we last left off, the Lions felt gracious enough to welcome a new star QB into the league. They felt so good about it that they decided to do it again the next week...this time to the new heir of LambeauLand, one Aaron Rodgers:

But A-Rod's 3TDs weren't enough. The Lions actually had the lead in the 4th () and looked as though this fairytale season was going to come to an end with a DET victory, but thanks to 24 unanswered points by way of a FG, a rushing TD, and 2 pick 6s, the GB Packers helped keep the Lions' dream season alive by defeating the Lions 48-25!

Week 3: Lions vs. 49ers - The Legend of J.T. O'Sullivan



When you think of the great QBs Detroit faced in 2008, you think of such names as Matt Ryan, Aaron Rodgers, J.T. O'Sullivan, Drew Bree---wait, who was that last QB?


[pic - click to view]



Yes, THE J.T. O'Sullivan. The ultimate journeyman:

New Orleans Saints (2002–2004)
Frankfurt Galaxy (2004)
Green Bay Packers (2004)
Chicago Bears (2005)
Minnesota Vikings (2005)
New England Patriots (2006)
Carolina Panthers (2006)
Frankfurt Galaxy (2007)
Chicago Bears (2007)
Detroit Lions (2007)
San Francisco 49ers (2008)
Cincinnati Bengals (2009)
San Diego Chargers (2010)
Oakland Raiders (2010)
Saskatchewan Roughriders (2012)

Traveling to SF, DET faced their former QB. Result? Getting styled on by said journeyman, Gore, and a well past his prime Isaac Bruce to the tune of 31-13 (which is the same score if you write it backwards ) and extending the Lions losing streak to the 49ers at this point to 6.
