The first month of football can be disorienting. One week, you’re team is beating up on a Super Bowl contender, the next they’re getting pummeled by a rookie quarterback. One week the Mitchell Trubisky looks like the second coming of Mark Sanchez, the next he looks like Drew friggin’ Brees.
For the Detroit Lions, the end result may always end in disappointment, but I’ll be damned if this team doesn’t manage to make expectations still change drastically week-to-week.
This week, we’re at the comedown. The Lions almost pulled off yet another comeback win, but ultimately came up short. The difference between a kick through the uprights and one shanked wide is astronomical when it comes to narrative. Through the uprights and the defense is horrible, Jim Bob needs to be fired and the season is over. Wide right and Stafford is a top five quarterback, the Lions offense is hitting its stride and as long as the defense improves just a little, this team could compete for the NFC North.
Through the uprights means we suck again this week, and so we must continue to move on. We record the PODcast on Monday night, so we need your questions to keep us warm as we turn to Autumn.
