A lot of people predicted 5 wins for the Lions this year. [Long sigh] I hate it when people are right. unfortunately i'm the kind of person who expects the lions to win every game, but i cant say with a good conscience that the lions should have won this one. they could have stole it. here's what i saw:
TOO MANY PENALTIES. can we fix this please? fast. i could stop here, this was the difference
dropped balls, felton, pettigrew, b johnson. those specifically could have changed the game.
no run game. Best is not like he was in the first 2 games. turf toe, i know. whatever
special teams. the collision between sheff and felton, and the mis-communication on kickoff late in 4th. that just hurts.
i'm just depressed, so it's hard for me to write the good things. i would say Stanton played well. the INT was not his fault. the illegal formation was not his fault (or was it?). Hansen, i love you. and last but not least, Stafford is back.
my best to Follett
