Hey SLO MO! How We Gonna Do vs Tha Lions?

This post is a mostly a shout-out to one of our coolest Posters, Slo Motion. What is this, your 3rd anniversary with B&G.com?

For those of you who just joined us, SloMotion, who lives in the Detroit, MI metropolitan area, I believe, appeared here a few years ago,
as a Lions Fan, which he is. He came here peacefully, to discuss what to look for in our matchup, which at the time, was a pretty exciting one, as both teams were playoff bound. SloMo was impressed at how friendly, and cool we were, and he became a regular member of our board, and the Saints are now his other favorite team.

SloMo's involvement here surpassed normal internet chat, as he went as far to drive from Michigan all the way to my house, at the time, which was 40 minutes East of Houston, in the Trinity River Marshes/ swamps for MudBugs III, our annual Hou-Dats Saints Fans crawfish boil. If anyone deserves to wear black and gold, it is you, my friend, and my hats off to you. I would like to remind you, MudBugs VII is coming after Easter.

So, being a Lions expert, Slo Mo, tell us how the Saints & Lions matchup, what to look for on both sides of the ball, what is the state of the Lions, what does this game mean for them, and give us a predicted outcome.

Re: Hey SLO MO! How We Gonna Do vs Tha Lions?

Hey thanks, Mike, ... this is the best board/group out there and MudBugs are a huge bonus, .

Well, I've given it some thought, and this might be the first time since joining B&G that I might actually pick the Lions to win this one ... "might" ... jury's still out, game ain't 'til Monday ... I got time, .

I know, I know ... Lions can't win on the road, Stafford is something like 1-18 vs winning/good teams, Caldwell has all the personality/energy of a Fathead life-sized, precision-cut, vinyl wall graphic with the coaching ability to match, but just like the Saints inexplicably beat Can'tlanta, Dallas & Tampa Bay, I'm thinking Detroit might be able to take advantage of the down-cycle and win one in the Dome ... hey, they beat the Packers in Lambeau for the first time in about 30yrs, #itcouldhappen.

The resurgence of the defense (NO) after releasing RR makes me think twice and the games vs Carolina/Tampa Bay kinda' make me think the Lions are gonna' get slaughtered, but they've (Detroit) had their brief moments of clarity despite the 1-7 start. Of course, they (Lions) also don't start playing their best ball until they've been mathematically eliminated and the games are meaningless, at which point they ripped off three consecutive wins this year, .

Both teams have talented rosters, IMO, and neither one of them should have a losing record, but only one team has a history of turning itself around and winning something and that'll probably, in all likelihood, manifest itself on MNF ... only time will tell, .

This game could be a trap, Detroit's had some pretty good MNF performances under similar circumstances, just sayin' ... ya'll know the deal ... we're not so different, you and I, .

If anyone would know the Lions, it's SloMo .

I think Stafford will sling the ball all over the place & torch #39 early and often.

Re: Hey SLO MO! How We Gonna Do vs Tha Lions?

There is just no telling who shows up. Saints in a prime time game in the Dome? Another Megatron thanksgiving display of awesomeness? Maybe it's who makes the least mistakes. I agree with RC83, don't look for a defensive match-up.
But Slo-Mo, appreciate you on the board!

SloMo for what it's worth I feel for Detroit because they are arguably the most screwed-over team in the NFL. Hope it's a fun game, but probably not much at stake for either team given this year.

Hahaha! I was telling my fiancee about Caldwell one night while we were watching the Lions beating the crap out of someone or another only to get beat at the end (Personally, I think it has to do with how close Detroit is to Cleveland) and this is this greatest description of that man ever!

I think Caldwell's in line to be the next James Bond. He has about the same range of expression as the current 007. -Just a little side jab at Sphinctre.
