“This is a long season — don’t be trying to write us off…I’m telling you, we’re good. It just didn’t show up today. This is a huge wake-up call for us.” – Cory Redding
So let’s just lay this out.
Okay Detroit? You’re supposed to take this lightly. It’s not a big deal. I mean, don’t sweat it, your football teams players think that they’re good, the coaches think they’re good and the team bus has these nice, plush, comfy leather seats.
The fact that the primary make up of this team is a bunch of 3rd stringers and practice squad players from Tampa Bay, guys that should be heating up your sub at quiznos instead of pulling an NFL paycheck is totally irrelevant according to the players and staff of the Detroit Lions.
The fact that Atlanta simply isn’t that good, yet managed to put 21 unanswered points up on you is irrelevant. The fact that they ran all over you (for 300+ yards) or that you couldn’t even put up more than 65 yards on the ground, meh, don’t mean much. THE LIONS THINK THEY ARE GOOD.
Ahhh… drink it in.
Pop the cork with me! Here’s to another season of Lions football! Huzzah!
