Sober up Lions!

As we Lion fans are giddy from the 2-0 start and the MSM feeds our confidence on a daily basis.... I'd like to point out a few bad habits that will cost the Lions a win if not corrected.


1. QB play; 2 weeks in a row, 2 picks in the 1st quarter. 2 picks thrown off target... one was a deflection, one was an air ball because of pressure. One cost the Lions 6pts, the other was about to do the same had it been any team other than KC(who couldn't hang on to the ball to save their life)

2. Rush Defense; Okay in Week 1 as TB only ran it 11 times(?)... Blount still had 5yds/carry... Horrible in week 2 until Roary, the mascot, put an end to Charles's season (that's a joke people). 6 carries for 65 yards is inexcusable... especially in a row, on the same drive.

3. Slow offensive starts and Special teams, ugh. One improved, the other regressed, you be the judge. Bottom line is, The Lions have left a LOT of points on the field in the this season. The 3 and outs have to stop. Reviewing the length of drives in the KC game... it was pathetic. (thanks again KC)

All in all, the first 2 must improve. Stafford needs to learn when to take a sack and when to throw it away. The Rush Defense, I expect to improve week by week as the LBers start to gel with the D Line. But make no mistake about it... The Lions are not there, yet. Their play hasn't been consistant enough to be in the 'contender' catagory, yet. Key word is... YET.

The Lions are only 2-0... Yet hasn't happened, Yet.

On a side note, here's to "YET" happening this weekend and kicking the crap out of the Vikings and ending the 14yr MetroDome losing streak!!!

Go Lions!
