So What Does This Home Opener With The Packers Mean?

Quite a bit. Our Lions looked nothing short of lousy on Sunday against a hollowed out shell of a team starting from scratch, playing in front of a half capacity home crowd.

We are rolling into week 2, year 3 of the Marinelli philosophy of fundamental football and its starting to sound like the adults in Charlie Brown. Wha Wha Woo Wha Wha. Same big talk, same weak walk.

“Tell the D Line to not not not not not block better”

Aaron Rodgers is going to walk into Ford Field and make no mistake about it, he’s feelin’ GOOD.

He looked like a salty dog on Monday Night Football, and if you can’t put pressure on a rookie, how on earth are you going to rain on this guys parade? We run the Cover 2, a defensive system that is predicated on pressuring the QB. When you can’t do that, it ends up looking like that game in Philly last year where McNabb dropped into the pocket, tied his shoes and flipped through this months Vanity Fair before tossing a 50 some yard TD Bomb on the Lions D.

So Green Bay hasn’t missed a beat, the Bears looked “WOW!” against the Colts and yet again the Lions are left in the dust to round out the bottom of the less than prestigious NFC North. If the Lions get embarrassed again, right here at home in a game that may not even make it on TV in Detroit, you can pretty much put a bow on this season, its over in week 2.
