    Drath doesn't type. He just dictates to his personal secretary, who then types the message for him.

    It's gotta hurt to be called out on grammar/punctuation by Thee.

    Irregardless, it should be an interesting game. Like you said, the Lions desperately need a win, but they have not looked good and generally play poorly on the road. Vick is due to have a monster game. It could get ugly.....then again, Stafford could finally break out.

    I think my grammar is fine for forum use. I see it as one step above txt'g. And 2 notches below a resume.

    Congratulations to the Lions and their fans! Nice comeback to save the season.

    All Coaches on the Eagles must be fired. Bench Vick.

    32 NFL teams and 19 of them are 3-2 or 2-3......or 3-3.

    Makes Minnesota's 4-1 look silly.

    Watching Vick's postgame interview was grueling..........:cold:

    What an ending. Can't believe the Lions couldn't get it in the endzone at the end of regulation from the 1. Critical win if they have any thoughts on salvaging this season.

    Pretty good game by the Lions considering all of the fumbles. Bears are tough at home and we almost got them.

    The goal line dive was kind of a dumb call in the wet conditions though.

    The Lions defense was pretty good. The team, as a whole, was an embarrassment, though. It was just pathetic, terrible football.

    I didn't really consider the game pathetic when I was watching it. Looked like a ton of effort on both sides of the ball to me. Stafford was hustling his butt off. Did you see how covered everybody was and how much pressure he was under? Same with the other side of the ball. We were hitting very hard and kept the offense in the game with some nice resistance.

    Statistic: Det/ Chi
    tot plays: 67/ 69
    1st downs: 21/ 19
    tot yards: 340/ 296
    penalties: 5-47/ 9-49
    sacks: 5/ 3
    turnovers: 4/ 0


    We were in the red zone multiple times. 2 critical fumbles when we should have had at least 10 points on those trips. Then the fumbled punt return. (the INT was meaningless due to the situation, but we were also in easy range for a FG there if we wouldn't have been down 13 points).

    IMO, we outplayed the Bears except for the 3 fumbles. All 3 were execution errors by individuals and not something that the team as a whole should feel bad about.

    On the road, in the rain, against one of the best defenses, in a rivalry game. 1 less fumble and we had it.

    Tashawn..........what do you think of the Lions' chances at finishing above .500 football.??

    Are they good enough to go from 2-4 to 9-7.............???

    Da Bears are certainly good enough to finish above .500
