Once again, post your game-day thoughts here. I was going to do a piece on this match up, but really -- what more is there to say? So far, the team has been on the "If not..." track we were hoping the season wouldn't end up on during the ifseason.
Just the same, time tested, most basic of they need to do:
Score more points than the other guys.
Do that, and you win. Don't, you lose. See, wasn't that profound?
Seriously, they need to eliminate the bone-headed penalties, stick to their assignments and tackle, run crisp routes, and not push things too much onto themselves.
Most of all? Play one snap at a time and concentrate. The game is winnable -- the question is: Will the execute?
Film will tell -- and will determine if the bye week is started off with the beginning of what could be a great run, strides made, a team humming and clicking...
Or if it will be a time of Re-Tooling and figuring out what to do. Hey, at least sitting at 0-2 the Lions weren't predicted to be in the Superbowl like San Diego and Minnesota. They, even as the Lions, are looking at themselves going "What happened??" I think that question is hard to answer for all of them...
