Buck-Buck-Brawckkkkkkk

In his popular NFL Column on ESPN "Tuesday Morning Quarterback", Gregg Easterbrook directly addresses coach Jim Schwartz's decision to punt in Vikings territory in the third quarter of last Sunday's game. See Below: Buck-Buck-Brawckkkkkkk: Trailing Minnesota 17-10 late in the third quarter, Detroit punted on fourth-and-3 from the Vikings' 41. Skies must have darkened over the game -- not that you could see inside a dome -- as the football gods showed their displeasure with this fraidy-cat decision by Jim Schwartz. On the next snap, the football gods exacted punishment, causing Adrian Peterson to run 81 yards for a touchdown. Lions -- you came into the game having lost 21 straight on the road. Playing not to lose, rather than playing to win, won't change that! And now you have lost 22 straight on the road. I don't remember being upset about this particular decision, but Easterbrook's point stands true about this decision as well as the call to go for 3 at the end of half. Bold action is required to turn this ship around.
