    The Cards have lost 9 in a row after opening 4-0....Their offense is anemic.....The Lions will jump off to a 28 pt half time lead and lose 31-28

    Lions are the first team in NFL history to lose 3 leads of 10 points or more in a row.

    I like the idea of trying to do it one more time to make that record untouchable.

    Last year we were the comeback kings, now we just blow leads. The similarity is that in both years, we were competitive and involved in close games.

    Need to get over the hump next year somehow.

    The marketing team over there at Ford Field needs to jump all over the slogan that you came up with.

    This one?

    Or this one?

    The first one is a bit long but it could work if they remove the last part. That would make it even catchier than the second one.

    Cards have lost 9 in a row........
    They must be salivating to be getting the Lions at home.
    Lions have gone back to their losing ways.
    Just losing now...with better players.

    Cards 31 - Lions 28

    I'm going with 14 road teams this week in "Picks".......but not the Lions on the road.

    Detroit teams have a knack for winning once they have been eliminated from the playoffs.

    Right now, the Lions are in a 5-way tie for the 4th worst record (4-9) in the NFL. If they continue to lose, they have a shot at one of these guys:

    1. Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia
    2. Manti Te'O, LB, Notre Dame
    3. Star Lotulelie, DT, Utah
    4. Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M
    5. Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M

    Beer, those first 5 guys are all monsters. Where would you play Te'o ?
    I'd put him at MLB.

    Why do they all have O's in their last names? Seems suspicious.

    We named our second son Luke, but we did consider naming him Jarvis, Manti, Star, or Damontre.

    Once the special teams muffed the punt return, I knew the Lions would find a way to lose.That momentum as switched to the 9 losses in a row Cardinals, who have no offense, but have a 21-7 lead. The Lions have no receivers and Stafford throws with reckless abandon. ...The wife wants to go out and shop....may as well go out with her and hope that the Lions turn this around while I am out spending $$$.
