Post Lions lose to Browns 17-10
Game recap is on the main page...

Quick thoughts:

Another loss on the road - ugh!

The Lions did a good job with penalties with only 5 for 20 yards - nice for a preseason game. No turnovers was also a good sign. A couple of missed FGs played a big role in the outcome.

McMahon looked better than the first game, Mirer looked just as bad. Harrington looked decent hitting Rogers for a 10 yard TD. JH looks like he worked on his fakes - he didn't stare down WRs a much as week 1.

KJ looks like he has good vision and power. Didn't get a chance to see him really use his speed. Pinner looked ok. Bryson looks to be a solid 3rd down back. Cobourne looked decent.

Williams still hasn't caught a ball. He looked a bit lost. He had a few balls thrown to him, should have caught one or two - the rest weren't good throws.

Defense looked a bit better but the Browns still rushed for 145 yards. They only had 114 passing yards (the Lions only had 125) but were 12-18.

Donte Curry looked good again to me at LB. S. Rogers looked pretty good except for the penalty.

Our starting secondary were all held out of the game - uggh.

The Lions could have won the game but on the road you need to play a bit better than that to get a "W" in the NFL...

very dissapointing loss..williams needs to catch a ball for once..perect passes to him ..that 1 catch that was deflected off of the LB's hands..williams didnt even adjust to attempt to catch the ball he just stayed in the same spot he was in

Agreed. I wasn't impressed with Williams' play at all. Also, Lee Suggs ran way too easily on us. At least Rogers (both) looked good.

Bryson SUCKED !!!!! :x For being the most experienced RB against scrubs, he should've looked like Terrell Davis---I guess he did (the shape that Davis is in now).

Cobourne clearly outplayed him. He's a Keeper, at least for Special teams!
