I concede your point, but that's exactly why I don't talk about special teams . . . because we don't have 'em . . . at least the tackling part, our kick/punt game has always been good, it's trying to stop the return once the ball leaves the kickers foot that we seem to have problems with at times . . . ey yi yi . . .

go Lions.

I don't see us sacking Brees all that much . . . hurrying him, collapsing the pocket maybe . . . the game is gonna' be won right there, your All Pro O/L vs our YoungGuns D/L . . . the rest is just details.

go Lions.

Hey, does the Aaron Rodgers Discount Double Check ad always precede that video or was it just a cruel coincidence? lol. That was quite a hit though . . . I like how Payton went right back to his clipboard, crawling on his knees even . . . you can't coach that kind of stuff, it's either in you or it's not . . . I can see why ya'll play the way you do . . .

go Lions.

Don't think of it as "losing at home", think of it as launching our postseason career, eh?

go Lions.

Slomo- I am worried about this game. You have a good defense, good d-front, very good qb, and look at megatron. Very dangerous team. This is not an easy game for us, and I am biting my nails with you guys coming to the dome!!

I hope that this game is well officiated and neither team has to walk away feeling that any call (not legit) determined the outcome.

I like to think of it as "The Saints haven't lost at home".

Just so you know the Lions have NEVER lost to the Saints in 2012.

Well, in all honesty, we probably have a snowball's chance in hell of pulling this one out, but it's a chance and I don't think we Lions' fans know any better then to think we can win this one . . . this is going to be a great fricken' game if our boys can maintain their composure and not get blown out by Brees & Co . . . the over/under is 59 for crissake . . . I am getting excited, IDK what I'm going to do all day tommorrow waiting for opening kickoff . . .

go Lions.

We lost bc our rookie OT got schooled, Drew panicked and tried to get us back in the game too quickly, and there were a few freak plays (blocked punt?)
