You see, Rob Parker refers to Ford Field as ‘The NFL Hospital’ because traveling teams come in sick and always leave feeling GREAT.
I stand by my words, this game will set the tone for the season.
The tone is currently “thudPLOPsplat“.
We look TERRIBLE. And I’m not going to give that much credit to Atlanta. This is a team that is building something. A San Diego bench warmer came in and ran over you for 220 yards setting a Falcons franchise record. A rookie QB lit you up, only the 8th rookie QB to to win on opening day since the merger. Atlanta is a 4 or 5 win team, don’t get it twisted. Obiviously they are headed in the right direction, they should be playing for the NFC Championship again in a few years.
This Lions team is supposed to be a product of fruition. The head coach is in place, no longer saddled with one of the best offensive coordinators in the League or Donnie Henderson, now he’s got his guy Mr. Pound The Rock Collete. He’s got his step son and the drunk naked Wendy’s drive through guy.
How’s that going? The Lions rushed for 62 yards.
And the passing game? Who cares. You can’t set up the pass as a threat when you can’t even rush for 70 yards.
How about that upgraded defense? Gave up 318 on the ground. What the hell are the colts going to do to us? Vikings? Packers? Kevin Jones has a career high single game rushing record to look forward to this season, make sure you put him on your fantasy team, oh, say October 5th and November 2nd?
