Plenty of times in my life I've got lucky.

When my opponent messes up, I've not got lucky. it's precisely because I prepared better than them that I didn't mess up and they did and I won.

You should give yourself more credit :D

I guess I have been a down trodden, embittered Lions fan for far too long. I don't give a rats rectum how we win. I will accept a win any way we can get it. They have been too few and too far between far too frequently.

I think you're missing the point. We both said clearly we'd take the win. What we are saying is that it's not a win to be overly proud of. We got away with playing poor offense for close to 40 minutes, and a defense that played well for maybe 10 minutes total. They played well enough to get the win, but not well enough to win many games if they don't improve. They showed some improvement against the rams. The offense played pretty good the whole game, and the D played a little better (so much improvement needed there though!)

There are games where you really feel good about a win, and then there are games where you get by. We got by against the eagles. I don't really understand how that's even debatable to anyone who watched the game.
