The Second Longest losing streak in the history of the game is officially over.
This is the first time I’ve fired up word press to write about a win. Like… I don’t know what to do. This is unfamiliar. I must say, feels good man.
I would have preferred to see some better offensive play in the second half, but the bottom line is that for the first time in what feels like a million years, they executed. They held the Skins down when they needed too, but I feel that were the Lions better developed, this would have been a 40 something to 14 blow out.
BUT WHO CARES. WE WON.
I’ve spent well over a year watching Lions games like this
Bryant Johnson had a brilliant first half aided by Calvin Johnson who spent most of his time double covered. Stafford was showing some improvement, especially in his working the snap count and his decision making. ESPECIALLY his decision making. I liked seeing a few plays that unlike last week where there would have been an interception, this week he made the smart move and dumped the ball off. His accuracy is still a work in progress, but this game showed me some growth.
Kevin Smith looked awesome and we moved the ball on the ground…
“We not only got the monkey off our back, we got King Kong off our back,” said Lions owner William Clay Ford. “I’m hoping that this gets us over that hump and gives us a winning attitude.”
Well Mr. Ford, one win in 20 games isn’t going to change the attitude. Drafting well, protecting your quarterback and stopping the run are how you get a winning attitude. But hey, I’m not going to go on the organization rant. We won a game.
Feels good to win man… Feels good.
