    If they win today, do you think it would be a bit premature to start talking Super Bowl?

    The lack of replies is equivalent to my not even knowing the lions were playing today.:pound:

    The Lions jumped off to a 14-7 lead, but a INT by Stafford gave Da Bears a 21-14 lead and now it is 21-21 at the half...

    The Lions are hanging in there, but they're still making too many mistakes.

    Hanson kicks off out of bounds at the end of the 1st half, giving the Bears a chance to score.

    Sackus gets another false start to back them up deep.

    Not a good start to the 2nd half either.

    They still can't tackle. Hester is out the game and his backup scored a TD on the 2nd half kickoff. They gave up a 70+ yard run missing about 10 tackles in the process.

    They still take horrible lines to the ball carrier, especially on special teams.

    HOW THE HECK DOES STAN KWAN STILL HAVE A JOB!?!?!?!?!

    The Lions are so far away from the Super Bowl that the league wouldn't even sell them tickets to watch the game.

    Having said that, they're about 1000% better than they were last year. But they're still worse than 99% of the league.

    There are 4 college teams that would scare them.

    Smith was banged up and had no holes to run through all game. But I do agree, he's no Barry Sanders.

    Forte actually had a bad game. If you take out his 2 long runs, he only averaged about 1-2 yards per carry.

    I like Delmas, but damn, he wiffs on some tackles really bad.

    They're the same. Lions have had open field tackling problems since the early 90s.

    That kickoff return to start the 2nd half was a killer.

    Nasty 2nd half. I feel like all of the teams that I root for right now cough the ball up on a regular basis.
