The game is blacked out locally, and DF79 Clan will be moving my mother in law to my brother in law’s house where it will be easier for everyone to help out. I may even stay up to watch the game Sunday night, or get up early Monday to catch it on the NFL.com free game rewind.
For those of you who can see the game, or who will be catching it via streaming online feel free to post your thoughts here in the comments.
IF both Stafford and CJ play, with K. Smith healthy I can see all 3 having a BIG day vs. the Rams. This is a team the Lions should be able to blow out if their offense and defense are both clicking at the best level they are capable of right now. There are plenty of weaknesses to exploit with the Rams, and they are at least (if not more) bereft of talent as the Lions. The Ram offense is not even a shadow of its’ glory days, and the Lions should have no trouble bottling up Steven Jackson and pressuring Bulger. Even Detroit’s secondary should be able to cover the Rams’ WR.
The key words there are IF and SHOULD. IF not, then we are in for a Veeeery loooooong season. I think that the Lions will come out motivated at home and dominate. Just keep in mind, when it comes to predicting, I always think the Lions have a shot to win.
Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween. The Little Pink Lions had a real blast, and so did Mrs. DetFan1979 and myself. 8-6-5 are a great age mix for Halloween — reminds me of back in the day with my brother, driving around to the other farms (we lived in the country) with a pillowcase. Good times.
