Lions Congregation: Of Peterman and Wins


Thanks to Joshua over at Roar of the Lions, SideLion Report is part of what is called the Lions Congregation. Every week, he brings a panel of Lions bloggers the questions of you the readers. It is exciting to be a part of a solid group of writers and fans who share equal passion for our football team!

Here are this week’s questions:

Najacks00: has stephen peterman’s foot injury been more serious than we’ve been told? it seems he’s getting pushed around more this year than in the past. if that’s the case will he get healthy during the bye? will that help the run game get going?

DesertLion85: Assuming the Lions can stay healthy, what is a reasonable expectation of second half wins – especially since with Romo out Dallas looks beatable with Kitna under center. Is 5-5 too much to expect?

My answers comes after the jump…

1. With the way the Lions closely guard all injury information it is impossible to know just how much Stephen Peterman’s foot might be affecting him now. We could single out Peterman but I don’t know if it is really warranted. Each member of the offensive line has had his good and bad moments. They will have to perform more consistently as a unit to help out the running game.

2. Is a 5-5 finish too much to expect? Yes. Is 5-5 possible? Also yes. I agree with those that say the Lions need to start winning games to show that they truly are making progress. The total number isn’t as important to me as they way they get them. I would love to see the Lions win a game on the road, a low scoring game, and a game against a superior opponent. If that makes for only three more wins the so be it.
