The Lions offense has gotten too soft

Shutting down for a whole quarter is not how a team wins

What do you call a quarter where the Detroit Lions didn’t reach a single first down? The turd quarter—and rest assured that the turd quarter on Sunday against the Chicago Bears was one of the turdiest of turd quarters this season. What do you do with an offense that refused to move down the field, panicked when the script went awry, never saw its deep threat, and stacked more turnovers?

On this episode of the Pride of Detroit PODcast, we’re breaking down the Bears loss, words we really shouldn’t have to say because Chicago shouldn’t exist as an NFL franchise. They do though, and it’s doubly insulting when they actually win a football game. The shock of the loss has the Lions looking for answers in this late season, Lions fans getting fatalistic and we’re just trying ot navigate the mess of it.

The defense shows signs to grow on, but the Lions offense has now been stalling for repeat games, and a fix is needed, but where? Can health catch up to the Lions before the playoffs? Who disappointed the most from the Sunday match, and is Jared Goff’s rhythm broken? Finally, how confident are you on these final four games?

We give it to you all and more in a podcast therapy session for Lions fans.
