Lions fans aren't concerned about our defense

  • Last I checked, we stopped the human growth hormone therapy with Calvin, so "no", he hasn't suddenly grown five more inches since last we met.
  • I won't say, "we're doing better", how 'bout, "we've grown a lot and come together as a team the past six weeks"?
  • We're healthy, got our red-headed stepchild Suh back and we've seemingly addressed the lack of composure issue that seems to plague us from time to time. Don't remember if Stafford was still wearing "the glove" or not, but I'll throw that in there, he's "glove-free". Plus, we have exhibited flashes of a run game and we got Bell off your practice squad to let us know where all the good places to eat after the game are.
  • Both teams had penalties? Dude, we had 11 for 107yds, you guys had 3 for 30yds . . . that's not even apples & oranges, that's coconuts & grapes! Anyway, hopefully we won't be assaulting any referees this time around or interfering with your DBs covering us so much.
  • I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Jabari Greer for his assistance on our touchdown drive . . . if I could get the team's mailing address, I'd like to send him a fruit basket or something . . .
  • 31-10, 31-13, whatever, anything less then 31 for us is considered a loss, at least by NFL standards.

It's not a lot, but that's our story and we're sticking to it . . ."Da da dum da dum da da . . . Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity, To seize everything you ever wanted in one moment, Would you capture it or just let it slip?" . . . team plane is in the air, we're coming to town boys, and we're coming to play.

go Lions.

I love how a team that failed to do anything last year uses last year's analysis on us, if we applied what last year statistic's was to them they wouldn't be a playoff contender.

Listen Slo, I don't want to be a buzz kill .... but that's how we felt last year right before the Seattle game.

If our defense is a tin curtain then Detroit's is an even more maleable material...pewter comes to mind. Enough about our D. There are teams far worst than the Saints in the Playoffs.

Only converting 2-11 on third down, that's a problem for us . . . nah, we're plenty concerned with your 'D' . . . we just think we fixed our discrepancies and can beat it now . . . ya'll lucky you got me to clear these things up for you . . .

go Lions.
I've been hanging out over at the DEN this week. The closer it gets to the game the chippier they get. Man, I thought we had a persecution complex! I hate to say it because I like that board but after the game we're going to hear a lot whining and accusations of dirty play and referee favoritism coming out of Detroit.

WHO_DAT_CAT, I appreciate your concern and will definitely take that under advisement, seriously . . . it carries more weight coming from a Saints' fan then anyone else . . . but you can't kill the buzz . . . I fully expect the Saints to win, but for one brief, shining moment, we will be on the field, in the playoffs, facing a SuperBowl caliber team . . . win or lose, at the end of the day Saturday, I'm a Detroit Lions fan, so it's still a pretty good day . . .

Boutte, I've been hanging out here all week and it kicks the **** out of any of the Detroit boards . . . ya'll make me wish I was a Saints' fan, but the Lions were given to me by my father, as they were given to him by his father and as I have passed them on to my son . . . I can only be what I am. I'm not a big fan of the Detroit boards. Before this season, I lurked around the boards, never really participating because some of what you're pointing out . . . I didn't feel they accurately represented the pulse of Lions' Nation . . . I still feel that way . . . next season I'm playing all 'road games' and just hanging out in the opponents' message boards . . . I wouldn't spend too much time in the Den, it'll only 'dumb' you down . . .

go Lions.
