Scanning the Savanna

A good, simple predictor of any team’s long-term success is usually the difference between how many points they score and how many points they give up.

So how come the Detroit Lions are 2-7?

We mentioned last week that Lions coach Jim Schwartz was due for some criticism in Detroit, even if we think it’s premature.

Following Detroit’s road loss to the winless Bills, the heat has turned up.

Sources have told ESPN that the National Football League Players Association have drawn up a counterproposal to the league’s designs on an 18-game season.

Understand that everybody has had a hand in the Lions’ inability to run.

“The run game always starts up front with the offensive line and the run game always finishes with the running back,” coach Jim Schwartz said. “And with those end points and all points in between, we haven’t done a good enough job.”
