You can say the Lions didn’t look that bad. You can say Culpepper looked pretty decent (despite giving up two picks) and you can also say that the Lions showed a lot of heart today, and its all true.
But here’s what’s also true: The Lions can’t tackle. In a league of parity, the difference between giving up a 3 yard run and giving up a touchdown is one or two missed tackles. When the team you are playing, a run first kind of team by the way, sets a franchise record for yards on the ground against you, you are obviously lacking. When the QB’s starting against you are typically having career days, you got a problem.
The problem is Joe Barry who is clearly in over his head and doesn’t have the ability to deal with this and doesn’t have the players to execute. One is his fault, the other is daddy in laws fault.
The thing is that we are fans. And our team is not delivering, it is in fact winless at 0-10 and WE WANT BLOOD. Fire Joe Barry.
