"Will be" is not the same as Atlanta-fan coming on here and regaling us with tales of the "other Matt's" exploits while trying to cram him into the top tier, down our throats.

I think you have me confused with another fan base, Oak-man, .

No Sir, I've got nothing but bromance for you, I extend that courtesy to no other.

Just make sure you spank GB and the Viqueens, Reggie. Stafford will need better protection on blitzes when Reggie is back there. Reggie was never known to be a blocking demon.

On the second part:
Not intending to vent on you but take it for what it's worth, a prime example of why I don't care to live in Louisiana again.

The laundry list of excuses that never include the reason.

You literally just strung together a list of excuses for why a 4-12 team should have been in the play offs? A 4-12 team? Seriously?

How about "they failed to consistently show up on game day ready to play ball"?

They did show up against the titans, they gave it away. They did show up against the bears defensively and given where that game was played in primetime, they did well. They beat the 4-3 seahawks and after beating jags is where their losing slump began. At vikes, who were 5-4, packers who were 6-3 and won late on a int return, texans who were 10-1 and we know how that turned out. After that they were done at 4-7, and in came the under the radar overachieving colts who were down 13 at one point in the game, then came the packers again in which they led until late third in Lambeau, after that they were drained on a second straight road trip going to Az out west. With the exception of that game and Atlanta, their last seven games 5 of them were all close losses. Lions had to play contender after contender. Their problem was not not showing up on game day but not being able to finish games.

Re: Reggie Bush compares Matthew Stafford to Drew Brees

I like Stafford, he's a competitor, he's got a good head on his shoulders and he's a very good QB

To turn him into a better QB is a mix of a couple of things - more weapons than just calvin johnson, a better running game/committment to the run by the OC and more defensive help

He's already passed for 5000 yards and 40 TD's, to take the next leap the Lions need to get him some help - they do that and the lions will be a serious contender

"Showing Up" means arriving prepared to play 60 minutes of football. Not kicking arse for the first 1/2 then just being on the field for the second 1/2. It's being mentally prepared to play all 60 minutes @ 100%. Football is as much mental as it is physical.

Now. The Lions are a team.... An organization and that means if the players bust arse for 60 minutes but the coaches screw up the second half adjustments as a whole they have problems. Problems that players can not effect.

I don't believe any teams intentionally "give away" games... Someone fails to do their job, be it players or coaches.

In my honest opinion Atlanta has a coaching problem.... So do the Texans. Kubiack and Smith are the reasons they don't go as far as their on the field talent says they should.

As much as Payton is the reason we win, Schwartz is the reason the Lions lose.

Not all head coaches can get it done.

I get a lot of grief for it, but I'm also of the opinion HC Schwartz/OC Linehan/DC Cunningham just aren't going to provide the level of coaching necessary for Detroit to be perenniel playoff contenders or make the jump to the next level. They're Ok and will string together a winning season now & then, they just ain't taking you to the promised land anytime soon.

It's one of those things where you hope you're wrong, but you're afraid you may be right.

We are all too familiar with that feeling, Slo!
