Re: Reggie Bush Reunion in Detroit Immenent

If those 2 DT's play like they should, Drew is gonna have it rough with the pressure up the middle. Mosley ain't that bad either in their DT rotation plus Ansah is very talented from the outside. We'll probably have to resort to keeping a RB/FB/TE in the backfield full-time to help out our interior O-Line.

Their D is pretty dang good. Holding Rodgers & Co. to 1 TD is kind of a big deal (it certainly killed my fantasy team that week, for sure). However, they've also played some pretty pedestrian offenses like NYJ, MIN, BUF, and the NY Eli's to be #1 in overall defense with 197 yards per game & 13.7 points per game allowed.

I am excited about this one, and I would not be shocked at all if this one is low scoring. Bush should be amped for this one and trying to make a statement. That could work in our favor...we've seen him far too often try too hard and make some real big mistakes. Can't wait!

Yes. With Calvin out there (even injured), it also opens it up for Tate, Bush/Bell, Ebron (though they don't target him enough!) and MattFord spreads the ball around a bit ... if Calvin is not in there, for some reason Staffie seems to have a hard time finding any of his offensive weapons, ie bone-headed INTs, :scratchhead:.

... and they are playing a bit "up" this year, . Last week's performance vs the Vikes was a good example of what they can do and shoulda' been doing much more frequently the past several years, IMO. I can't remember the last time the Lions recorded 8 QB sacks in a game or Suh even got 2 in the same game.

Yep, but we all know this will be the best interior O/L Suh/Fairley have faced to date and will be the benchmark going forward ... Wheaties Up! . Don't forget Ansah/Jones coming from the edges ... it's the first year I truly see our defensive ends benefiting from the push up the gut ... maybe it's more a reflection on the new talent at DE, IDK, :shrug:.

It is "much improved", but there are still chinks in the armor ... Green Bay actually didn't appear to have much of a game plan going in to Detroit & I doubt the Lions will be able to repeat that performance in their second meeting. I've been preaching to the Lions Faithful, "Wait until Wk #7 ..." before they get too high on these guys. I mean, Kyle Orton made 'em look absolutely pedestrian ... Kyle Orton, for crissake, . I wanna' see Drew, Brady, Cutler & another round of Rodgers before they get the official "SloMotion Seal of Approval", .

That will be the focus of the game, IMO ... if the Lions D can handle Brees & Co. It's a given that Stafford can be rattled into mistakes, especially if Calvin is not in or 100%, and the O/L is a discombobulated mess, for some odd reason. Saints D, despite their woes, should put up a good showing in this one.

I'm anticipating this one as well ... if the Lions win, it could mean they're ready to start beating the next tier teams, albeit not a Saints team on the level as previous teams, eh?

DET 16 - NO 9 ... how's that for a low scorer, brother?

Re: Reggie Bush Reunion in Detroit Immenent

I'm sure Reggie is looking for some payback after we disrespected him the way we did. I wonder is he still speaks to anyone in the Saints organization?

Nicely done...see what you did there. You thinking 2 TDs, 1 FG, and 1 Missed PAT for Detroit? What is blatantly wrong with your prediction is not the score but that we'd be able to make 3 FGs in 1 game with our kicker.

I never predict actual scores and I never pick who wins, so this game is won by a 4 point margin. Nobody scores more than 24.

Re: Reggie Bush Reunion in Detroit Immenent

I bet after all the kicking woes the lions have had, they will not miss one vs us and will probably hit a game winner

Teams never miss FG's against us.

This is what I seem to repeat every game, every time the kicker trots out there...regardless of distance. Man, it certainly does seem that way.

Well, sounds like Detroit's kicking game will finally get back on track in this one!, . If that's the case, then I wanna' change my prediction of 16pts comprised of 2TDs, 1FG and 1 missed PAT to being made up of 1TD & 3FG's ... besides, without Calvin, the Lions offense absolutely sputters, .

Straight from those dingle berries at PFT...I'm still sticking with my "nobody scores more than 24 and nobody wins by more than 4" formula:

Saints at Lions

MDS’s take: The Saints’ offense is good and their defense is bad. The Lions’ defense is good and their offense is bad. I’ll break the tie by going with home-field advantage, and that means the Lions.

MDS’s pick: Lions 23, Saints 20.

Florio’s take: The Lions have a great defense, but they haven’t faced an offense quite like the one the Saints have. Sure, Reggie Bush will want some revenge. But he can only do so much to match what the Saints will muster, with two weeks to rest and to prepare for a showdown with the team New Orleans manhandled less than three years ago in the playoffs.

Florio’s pick: Saints 34, Lions 27.

BREAK BREAK

Should be a great game...obviously an even better game if we can get that road monkey off our back. It's a vicious little creature.
