I could not believe what I was watching last week Sunday. After all the progress that I thought we had made as a team this year we should have blown out the worst (or so I thought) team in the league. The only thing that I can attribute the loss to the Rams to is bad preparation. I mean we have the personnel this year to beat the Rams and it was a home game. No excuses to fail on this one. The Failure came before the men even walked unto the field. The focus obviousl y was not there by the coaching staff and for SURE i know was not there by the starting QB! I grew up in MI but currently live in Atlanta, GA. On Monday October 26 I took my girlfriend out to a nice restaurant in ATL. About 20 minutes after I walked in, Stafford strolls in with his girlfriend. I could not believe that he was still in Atlanta so late after the bye week. From everything I read the Lions had praticed the previous Thursday and Friday, which Stafford did not attend. He finally showed up for practice on Tuesday morning (the morning after I spotted him in Atlanta) almost five days after all the other players were back in Detroit. I almost gave him a pass for this because he was hurt, but then he is the starting QB for the week and he looks like he is underprepared and a little unsure of the gameplan. I cannot believe that a rookie who is gettting paid the money Stafford is would be so unprofessional as to not be in the film room and practice everytime he can--even if he is injured. He should be going over the playbook and be going through gameplan just like all the other guys even if he is injured. After seeing STafford just lounging around in Atlanta 6 days before the game and then saw the results of the game I was livid at the coaching staff, for not making Stafford come to practices even when he was hurt, and at Matthew, for not being dedicated enough to suck it up and put the time needed into the gameplan. Unbelievable!!!! Totally frustrated and discouraged after a loss that should have been a win and momentum changer!
