Another made up PI call against us and another 2 yard td by a division opponent. These refs need to go.

At this rate, we'd be lucky to go 4-12 this season. They can't even stop Brian Hoyer, 1 more TD and I'll have to turn the TV off.

Lions Bears

1st qtr


Bears return short opening kick by Martin out to the 33 on a big block clearing Armbrister out of his lane. Hoyer goes to Miller beating Whitehead in coverage early, big surprise for a first down to the 49. Bears try running at Devin Taylor who fights a double team for KVN to come in and make a stop for no gain. Bears run to the left again w Howard but Walker stuffs it for a loss setting up 3rd and 11. Lions bring a 5 man rush which is picked up but Hoyer throws the ball away for no reason in direction of Jeffery.

Lions have Roberts back to return despit a poor showing last week and he makes the right call letting the kick go through the end zone for a touchback which on punts apparently brings it out to the 20. Odd that its different on kickoffs but okay. Riddick runs left behind nice blocks by Decker, Ebron and Boldin for 6 yards. Lions go to shotgun and Stafford calls his play at the line and swings it out quickly to Boldin who cant make the first man miss and goes down short of the first. Jones possibly misses a blocking assignment that could ve helped. On 3rd and 3 Stafford zips a rocket out through the hands of Ebron who was well covered. Bears had a defender undercut the route as well - maybe knew what the Lions were thinking. Lions waste a difficult but well thrown ball by the QB.

Bears get a nice return by Royal but blow it with a block in the back and there drive ends up starting at the 17. All 3 backers initially fall for play action but only Whitehead overly commits to it and Hoyer hits Jeffery who dragged into Whiteheads abandoned zone for a 16 yard gain. Lions look like they win up front but Howard makes a nice cutback and Whitehead cant catch up with him until after a 12 yard gain. Howard gets up slow and Joique Bell takes his place. On 1st and 10 from there own 45, the Bears try a short pass to Paulsen who cant come up with it. KVN in coverage. Bears give to Bell, Hyder takes on a trap block to kill the play and Whitehead recovers to tackle Bell for a 2 yard gain w help from Ngata and KVN. 3rd and 8, Eddie Royal shakes Diggs on an out for a 1st down into Lions territory. Howards runs for 5 up the middle as KVN gets blocked and Bush comes up to make the tackle. Van Noy blitzes free off the edge on 2nd down but doesnt look like he s going full speed, Hoyer completes a short pass over KVN to Paulsen that Slay stops short of the first down. 3rd and 3 empty backfield Whitehead does a nice job covering the TE but Hoyer goes to Jeffery beating Lawson on a slant for the first down. Killebrew was in on the play playing man coverage also. Thornton stalemates a double team but Howards inside run ends up falling forward for 5 yards. On 2nd down Howard beats Whitehead down the left sideline but cant pull in the pass, Whitehead somehow gets flagged for a PI which appears to be based on nothing. Bears get it at the 4 and coverage forces Hoyer to roll right out of the pocket and he zips it into Royal for a TD who makes a tough catch with Lawson in tight coverage at the front of the end zone.

0-7


Lions
take over at the 6:30 minute mark and Roberts brings out the kick to the 16 yard line. Questionable choice and of course Ebron jumps early to set the Lions back to the 11 - 1st and 15. Stafford scrambles past the LOS and throws incomplete for a penalty and loss of down. 2nd and 20 from the 6 Lions come out in shotgun, Stafford has nobody open scrambles again and throws it off of Riddicks hands a catchable ball. On 3rd and 18 Stafford throws an awkward ball short over the middle incomplete to Jones. Martin punts of the end zone and the Lions do a nice job covering the kick. Ugly possession.

Bears Bell runs at Copeland who gets pushed back 3 yards off the line and ends up gaining 5 yards. On 2nd down Whitehead is a bit late picking up on Paulsen creeping into his zone and Hoyer hits it for a first down across midfield and down at the Lions 43. Hoyer sees Meredith covered by a distant Williams at the LOS and swings the pass out to him for an easy 5 yard gain out to the 39. Lions force 3rd down as the Bears run a slowly developing play and Hoyers throws off his back foor incomplete to Meredith covered by Bush. On 3rd and 5 the Lions blitz Killebrew and Slay who comes in free for an easy sack and 7 yard loss. Gilberry dropped off the line into coverage.

Lions start at the 20 after the Bears fail to down the punt near the goalline. 328 in the first. Washington takes the handoff up the middle for a 5 yard gain, Ebron in motion ends up laying a good lead block and Swanson, Tomilinson and Warford all make nice blocks. Ebron needs medical attention after the play. Decker and Tomlinson both get outside to make nice blocks on a quick off the line throw to Boldin who gets the first down to the 30. Lee comes in for Ebron and the Lions hand off to Washington up the middle but the Bears undercut Decker and the Washington has nowhere to go. Stafford drops back to pass on 2nd and 9 but Swanson gets plowed back 7 yards into Stafford by Hicks for a big loss. Lions face 3rd and 16 and the Lions run a little screen to Washington short of the first down. Martin makes another nice punt fair caught at the 11 by Royal.


Bears
Howard takes the handoff through an open hole brought down by KVN for a 4 yard gain. Good job by KVN bringing down Howard despite a full head of steam.

Post Re: Lions Bears
2nd Qtr 2nd and 6 from the 15 and Hoyer runs play action boot Hyder totally falls for it and loses the edge and Diggs drops off his tight coverage on Royal who gets the ball and picks up a first down. Taylor does a nice job setting the edge but KVN gets blocked and Howard pushes forward to the left for a 5 yard gain. Bears toss to Howard left and get a big gain but Bush was hugged at the point of attack and it comes back setting up 2nd and 11 from the 20. Hoyer goes to shotgun and hands to Howard right for a 2 yard gain. Taylor got hooked and lost the edge but somehow Howard made a bad read and Ngata won his battle to make the play. On 3rd and 9 the Lions front 4 gets no pressure but Miller stops short of the sticks and Quinn and WHitehead with help from Diggs drop him.

Lions Roberts takes a deep kick and has room on the return for a 15 yard gain. Stafford boots and goes deep to Wick but he doesnt adjust well to the ball working too far across rather than up the field and the pass goes out of his reach. Riddick takes a short pass makes the first guy miss and sets up 3rd and 6. Stafford gets Riddick on the sideline past the sticks but hes pushed out of bounds before he can get his feet down. Martin makes another nice punt but Royal makes something out of nothing and returns it 8 yards to the 20.

Bears throw to White again at the LOS w Williams shaded too far inside and get an easy 8 yards. Bears run at rookies Zettel and Robinson on the left side who get pushed back 2 yards but Whitehead shoots a gap to keep it from being a big play but Howard still gets the first down. Hoyer goes to White again w Bush asleep picking him up in coverage and gets an easy first down. Lions blitz Williams and Hoyer goes to WHite who has Slay boxed out but cant hang on to the ball, Bears blow a challenge on the play. Taylor makes a good play on Howards run but Van Noy is MIA on that side and Howard ends up getting away enough for a 3 yard gain. Van Noy leaves the field replaced by Killebrew as 3rd down backer. Hoyer continues to pick apart the Lions and completes to White w Lawson covering tightly but boxed out again. Bears are now at the Lions 45 and Hoyer throws to Jeffery broken up by Slay. Zettel ended up getting in Hoyer s face but Van Noy blitzing again seems to not have any sense of urgency and is at 3/4 speed maximum. Taylor gets hooked inside again losing the edge but Van Noy goes unblocked and doesnt fall for Howards move dropping him for a 2 yard gain. On 3rd and 8 Killebrew and Whitehead are again the inside zone coverage players and Hoyer goes over the middle to Royal but Whitehead and Quinn stop him short of the sticks. Bears going for it from the Lions 36, bring Joique Bell and a double tight look. Hoyer double clutched the snap and Robinson beats his man across his face to stuff Bell who gets cleaned up by Taylor. Easily the best play of the game for the Lions to this point.

Lions still only down one score take over after the turnover on downs at there own 38. Lions run behind Decker on first down for 5 yards but Decker nullifies the run with a holding penalty. Decker had a good block initially but didnt move his feet to shield the running lane with his body and also kept his hands high and grasping for way too long and ended up reaching across the defenders body. Jones finds some empty space off the LOS and Boldin does a decent job blocking for the Lions best pass of the day. 2nd and 3, Stafford goes to Tate but he gets tackled for a minimal gain and Tate never had a chance. Stafford throws off Jones chest on a free play but the offsides gives the Lions a first down which have been scarce, the hard count pays off. Riddick goes up the middle for 1 yard as Swanson couldnt stay on his block and Reiff gave up too much ground w a soft lazy block on the edge. Bears come with a blitzer who Riddick gets too late forcing Stafford to rush his throw which misses Lee. On 3rd and 10 the Lions give Stafford time as the Bears do not blitz - and he finds Boldin for 10 yards and a first down despite contact. Illegal shift sets up 1st and 15. Camerman shows Ebron w a confused look but its not certain he s at fault as Fox missed showing us the beginning of the play. Quick slant to Jones for 6 yards. Lions run Riddick right but Ebron doesnt help long enough on the double team on the DE or get a piece of the LB at the next level and Riddick somehow does flip forward for 2 yards. Possibly 4 down territoy Lions at the 36 facing a 3rd and 7 - Bears jump way offsides and refs blow it dead as Stafford tries to throw it deep on the free play that wasnt. Thanks refs. On 3rd and 2 Stafford puts the ball in Tate s hands but he cant hold on and instead complains about some contact which there was. 4th and 2. Prater going for a 50 yard kick knocks it in.

3-7

Bears Martin kicks a touchback but Lions are offsides so the Bears from the 30 w 2 timeouts and 2:19 to go. Hoyer misfires to White, Van Noy didnt have good coverage and the gift harmlessly bounces off his stone hands to the turf. Bears trick Thornton with a draw and Van Noy lets Howard run right past him for a 17 yard gain before Bush can bring him down at the Bears 47 heading into the 2 minute warning. Hoyer completes across midfield w Johnson Bademosi making a cameo just to show he cant cover Kevin White. Lions run a screen at Van Noy who misses a tackle on Howard but KVN and Ngata slow it down enough for Walker to come over and help w the tackle for 5 yards. Hoyer cant find anyone and just as he starts to leave the pocker Kerry Hyder slips his block and gets a sack forcing 3rd down, Gilberry falls on the pile later but doesnt get flagged. 3rd and 7 from the 31, the Bears RT false starts. 3rd and 12, Hoyer goes to Royal who quickly is brought down by Lawson for 4 yards. Lions use there first timeout as the Barth comes out and weekly misses from 50 setting up good field position for the Lions. Why d they cut Gould with nobody waiting in the wings?


Lions
start w 39 seconds left and two timeouts from there own 40. Stafford hits Jones across midfield for 17 yards skying above the zone coverage. Stafford rolls right, the ref looked like he was "this close" to flagging Reiff for a hold and Stafford hits Ebron towards the sideline and he catches it and goes out of bounds! Who s coaching this team? Lions at the 31 w 27 seconds and 1 timeout, Stafford goes over the top to Tate who couldnt get a step on the CB, incomplete. Stafford finds Riddick in bw tight LB coverage for 9 yards and they have to use there last TO with 16 seconds left. Stafford throws short on the left sideline but Tate kept running and Stafford throws an easy pick that somehow wasnt a pick 6. Who knows what Tate was thinking, he s had his head up his you know what since he got engaged before the season opener last year. Lions miss a chance for a FG but also have to wonder why the Lions werent throwing into the end zone on 3rd and 1 from the 22 - they were already in FG range.

Bears arent content to drop on a knee and Hoyer completes one across midfield but the Bears make a false start and then Hoyer s desperation heave goes incomplete and the Bears are holding anyway.

Post Re: Lions Bears
qtr 3 Lions Roberts brings it out again and gets to the 30. Riddick runs up the middle to the 34, decent blocking but Swanson eventually lost his guy who makes the play. 2nd and 8, Riddick gets stuffed as Tomlinson and Lee both get beat. Warford jumps to set up 3rd and 13. Stafford scrambles for 15 yards and the first down, looks quicker than last week. Jones makes a man miss and picks up 15 yards on a quick on the LOS throw. Misdirection run to Riddick behind a pull by Ebron getting the end and Reiff stepping up and cleaning out the LBer for 11 yards and a first down to the 30. Stafford finds Ebron his apparent 3rd read on the play after he clears the zone drops by the LB setting up 2nd and 1. Riddick goes up the middle left for the first down behind Decker and an effective block by Ebron. Riddick ost his footing as he had the defender juked on a swing pass but gets to the bears 15. On 2nd and 6 a clean pocket gives Stafford time to find Bolding across traffic to the 5. Riddick does it himself as Ebron couldnt finish his block but smartly didnt hold and the Lions get to the 1. Riddick punches it up the middle but cant get across. WHy is Burton not on the field and Ebron the lead blocker instead? The Bears time the blitz perfectly and Zenner gets taken down for a loss. Big play by the Bears. 4th down the Lions take the points on a 21 yard FG. Nice drive to start the 2nd half.

6-7


Bears
Martin kciks a touchback. Howard sneaks out of the backfield as WHitehead takes a really deep coveraee drop back for 8 yards. Howard runs left for the first down despite a good play by Ngata and Walker who was held and called. 2nd and 12 - Bears try to get off a quick snap but Diggs reads it and brings White down after a 1 yard pass play. Lions rush 4 on 3rd down and Hoyer gets all day as Royal dusts Diggs and races Quinn to the 12 yard line. Hoyer quick pass to White w Quinn stopping him for a 5 yard gain, White limps off. Howard up the middle finds nothing as Thornton and Hyder blow up the play. Suddenly its 3rd and 5, and Miller escapes to get truly wide open for an easy TD. Safeties went with the receivers and Williams thought he had help covering Miller.

6-14.

Lions Roberts return is again short and the Lions Bademosi the high priced STer makes an illegal block and the Lions start at the 10. How have they not figured this out - unless you have a dynamic returner take the touchback. Zenner comes in and turns a swing pass behind Jones slant route to beat the Lber for 22 yards. All white backfield Zinner goes up the middle reading his blocks for 10 yards. Swanson and Burton made great blocks but Warford completely whiffed his guy but Zenner was able to get underneath it sort of like a draw. Stafford gets time but Boldin bobbles the throw and drops it. Lions draw to Zenner on 2nd and 10 who gets 4 yards. Pretty good blocking except for Reiff getting no leverage. 3rd and 6 - Stafford pumps twice and throws behind open Riddick heading toward the sideline incomplete. Good throw and its a first down. Martins kick is too short and Bears fair catch at 20.

Bears Hoyer makes a dangerous throw in traffic to Meredith that was high but nice catch for 1st down. Howard goes off left tackle w Van Noy and Whitehead getting lost in the shuffle and poor corner support for 17 to end the 3rd.

Lol, I find myself not even giving a damn about this team more and more each week. The undisciplined play, the idiot on the sidelines with no emotion clapping his hands like a moron, the horrible defense, the never ending slew of injuries, almost never a standout rookie, dropped balls, running wrong routes on almost very play...

It's to the point where I'd rather do yardwork or watch two teams play that don't munch butthole. 20 years and it's just too much to watch the same crap every single week.

Embarrassment, this was an inferior Bears team that was ripe for the picking. But a quote I saw earlier sums it up perfectly: " The Lions have the uncanny ability to always play at the level of their competitor."

I couldn't watch after the 1st quarter and tuned into RedZone for the rest of the afternoon.

4th


Bears Lions fooled by the same play action boot again and Royal gains 14 yards. Bush could ve had an easy sack. Bears at Lions 38 and Howard runs off right tackle at Gilberry and WIlliams who completely missed the play, somehow went only for 6 bc Howard was off balance but play was wide open. Hoyer finds Meredith over the middle for a 1st down to the 28 Diggs on the coverage. Bears run a sloppy screen and Slay misses a tackle but Howard ends up getting 9. Howards runs left tackle Taylor gets eaten up by a double team and WHitehead appears to be afraid of the big back letting him get to the 14. Why didnt the Lions draft him? Howard finally stopped on an up the middle first down run. On 2nd and 8 Hoyers throw to Howard on the screen is off target. Hoyer throws short to Meredith underneath the coverage and Bush tackles him short of the sticks. Barth makes the short kick

6-17

Lions Roberts takes a touchback. Stafford completes to Roberts for 8 yards though its not clear why he s in. Riddick goes up the middle for 6 yards behind Tomlinson. Stafford goes for a big chunk but its dropped by Jones who tried body catching slightly behind throw. Riddick gets in trouble bc Ebron is too slow to get to his block and then gives up on the play, Riddick made a great 2nd effort but Ebron just stood there like a buffoon and they lost 5. Lions get good pass protection and Stafford steps up and finds Jones for a 19 yard gain and the 1st down on a 3rd and 15. On 1st down Lions again are looking for a chunk gain and Warford gives up a sack on a deep dropback for 9 yard loss. Stafford finds Ebron working the sideline for 9 yards. 3rd and 6, Stafford in trouble finds Riddick for 3 yards. Offsetting penalties, resets the play. Reiff had an idiotic helmet hugging hold. Stafford had Jones but misses him badly - turns out its a defensive hold but Stafford s throw was way off and it couldve been a big play. Still they get the first down and Stafford finds EBron beating Freeman again for a 9 yard gain. Riddick makes a nice juke on the left side and picks up 7 for a first down but called back w Ebron holding, ticky tack call - officiating not making much sense. 2nd and 12 - Stafford to Riddick simple route and he ends up getting 10 w 2nd effort. 3rd and 2 w 5 minutes left Stafford finds Boldin on a quick curl for the first down. 1st and 10 under 5 minutes quick pass to Boldin no gain. Apparently Tate has been benched, righfully so. Stafford sails a pick over the head of Ebron. Looked like Ebron gave up on it but a bad throw thats on Stafford.

Bears Howard for 6 yards off the left edge to the 22. Howard takes another toss left for 10 yards. Hey look at that Tahir Whitehead makes a good play to stop Howard for a short loss. Whitehead makes another stop of Howard and Lions burn last timeout. 3rd and 7 - Ngata stuffs the play and Robinson in pursuit to drop Howard to set up a 4th and 4 punt. Wow Lions going for a punt block and a deep kick by the Bears - Roberts takes the punt return to the house on a punt block. Crazy stuff. Dude salvaged his job. 85 yards on the return.

Lions going for 2 - 5 wide, Stafford finds Tate for the score.

14-17

Lions onside Kick 1:52 left - Bears call a late timeout w Martin in his kicking approach. Martins kick is short and the Bears recover.

Bears take some knees to end it

14-17
