Post Packers @ Lions
May have jumped the gun here but I am excited for tonight's game.

Time to see if the defensive improvement is REAL - rattle Rodgers, get coverage sacks, shutdown receivers (hoping for another big game from Slay, Ansah, Ngata, Lawson/Diggs).

Time to see if we can generate some Time of Possession and get CJ the ball (although I'm playing vs. Stafford/CJ for a fantasy playoff spot, if they light them up I won't be too disappointed to lose: real FB wins > fantasy FB wins) and hopefully we can get our first sweep of GB since '91

I don't care if we lose down the stretch, or get bumped out by Seattle, or the statistical improbability that we actually make the playoffs. I WANT TO SWEEP GB!

I like that the players are dismissive about GB playing horribly and only focus on this game, not the outside shot of playoffs (I hope they mean it!)

my prediction 21-17 Lions

GOOOOOOOO LIIIIOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNSS! :arrow:

I don't know, part of Jim Bob's success so far in my opinion has a lot to do with the fact that there's no tape on his offenses. The opposing coaches couldn't figure out his tendencies and habits. But now that there is tape, and in GB's case, first hand experience with him, we can't surprise them anymore. The game will come down to defense and special teams in my opinion, as long as GB offense is contained to 21 points or less, we may have a chance.

Well, I do want the Lions to win. But, I don't just want a win. I want to destroy the Packers. I want the Packers thinking they may never be able to beat the Lions again when this game is over.

I am not wishing for injuries. You never have to do that. There will be at least 3 injuries in tonight's game. I just hope those injuries happen to THEIR 3 most important guys. And those injuries help them lose tonight plus 2 more games. That would put them at 9-7 and watching the playoffs from their living rooms.

That could be part of it, but he also seems pretty creative and focused on targeting his playmakers. Not saying we'll see a replay of the Eagles game every week, but I think right now he has as good a formula as any for repeated success.

I think it comes down to what CJ said in the Thanksgiving post-game interview... The players need to show up and put in the effort and act like they want to be there. It wasn't lost on CJ how Tate's body language looked in the losing streak.

This is the team I expected in the pre-season, but I didn't know Joe Lombardi wouldn't be able to fix the offense. Devin Taylor is taking their backup RT to school, hopefully he can continue to progress. I just wish we could run the ball somewhat effectively. Let's hold onto this lead and tighten the wildcard race.

Yup.

And suddenly the packers secondary is giving coverage sacks like candy. Line can't hold for more than 2 seconds. Definite communication issues between staff and the WRs and all along the line. Started out nice, but looked pretty awful the entire second quarter.

Stinking Packers fumble the ball for a TD.
