Hate to say it, but we just don't win this kind of game.


I fear that the Lions will take a commanding lead and Schwartz will be reluctant to step on the gas pedal and bury them which has been his M.O. with the Lions. He needs to back off and let them play this game all the way down to the 2 minute warning before turning conservative. The back end of this defense is probably the worst in the NFL and the offense is confused and without identity as RG3 is in some sort of transitional state bw his natural tendencies, recovery from injury, and conversion to pocket passer. The matchups heavily favor the Lions with the exception of Orakpo and Kerrigan vs Reiff and Hilliard. Bush is out so that hurts but the Lions have no excuse not to win this game. The only positive Washington has shown through two games is an ability to score in garbage time.


The Lions may not want to give up their title of best garbage time offense, so a loss is such a possible option. This seems like the type of game that could crush their season. They had to fight through lots of mistakes in week 1 then had a tough loss last week, now this week they are going up against a team in a downward spiral with lots of media rumors of bickering. If they manage to lose this game then have to play CHI and GB I see guys throwing away the season in frustration bye week 6.



lions should win easily, i ll be disgusted if they lose but not necessarily surprised

3 games in and the schedule looks clearer.

Looks to me like we have a tough first half, then a much easier second half. If we can make it to the bye at 0.500 I think we have a decent shot at the playoffs.

i think the games vs the Bears and Cincy will be good tests of how good the Lions are and if they ll be able to clean it up vs a tough opponent, if they dont Lions lose. The CLE game on the road is a trap game, Lions dont match up well with them.

Week 17 - Dec. 29 - at Minnesota Vikings - W Vikings playing for draft position.

11-5 We win the division and represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. There is a huge blizzard during the SB and NE Patriots win the game because they are a northern team that actually plays outside and as such, are more used to the weather. But, hey, at least we finally made it to the show.

If Calvin plays, we could win anywhere between 9 and 12 games. The defense played well in the first half but they needed the O to do something to keep them off the field and that didn't happen. They got worn out.

For sure, the Packers did a good job at having long, clock eating drives, and the short series by the Offensive put too much on the D.

So aside from Oakland, we're the only ones who've completed half their division games. We're 2-1 in the North. I think we have a shot to win 2 of the final 3. Chicago on the road will be tough, but with a healthy Calvin, I think we can take GB at home and Minny on the road. We've yet to play a great game start to finish. One of these years this team will put all aspects of the game together for more than a game at a time. Next week will be another huge test, Dalton Bernard and Green looked great today.

They're in a nice position to go 10-6.

Cincinatti
Dallas

If they can win one of those two games, that would make them 5-3.

@ Chicago
@ Pittsburgh
Tampa Bay
Green Bay
@Philadelphia
Baltimore
NY Giants
@Minnesota

If they lose to Chicago, Green Bay, and Baltimore and win the other 5 (very winnable) games they would finish 10-6.

Cincinnati has had no real pass defense and have been giving up chunks in the run game. Playing home for this one should make them very beatable.

Dallas we got lucky. Demarco Murray should be just coming back from his sprained knee, but Demarcus Ware is expected to miss at least 4 weeks from his quad injury. Minus their pass rush, give us time and should be able to easily pick apart that defense.

@Chicago is always tough, but them being down their top 3 DT's (not sure on how quickly some of them come back) we should be able to do even more against them.

Anything beyond that is looking too far out for me. They're all winnable, but you never know.
