|Offensive plays first... then I fill in the Defense as I go.
1st Quarter of Detroit Lions Game 2
1st and 10 at DET 20 (Shotgun) K.Smith left tackle to DET 21 for 1 yard (Ald.Smith).
all 4 DL were stout.. Ray lost a couple but was double teamed.. great job of Aldon to disengage the LT and tackle the RB quickly
2nd and 9 at DET 21 (Shotgun) N.Burleson right end to DET 24 for 3 yards (J.Smith).
excellent job Brooks to control TE and funnel RB back inside... great lateral pursuit from Ray and Justin.. Rogers, Goldson, and Bowman converge also.
Timeout #1 by DET at 13:48.
3rd and 6 at DET 24 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass incomplete short middle to C.Johnson.
5mR... Willis coming in free and hard... Stafford get it out about a foot and a half above Willis' hand raising up... Bowman actually tipped the pass with his left hand. Calvin ran into Brooks who was covering TE across middle...
4th and 6 at DET 24 B.Graham punts 43 yards to SF 33, Center-D.Muhlbach, out of bounds.
1st and 10 at SF 33 A.Smith pass incomplete short middle to V.Davis.
All other blocks were good, but I was not at all pleased with Staley letting the RE in to get a hit on Alex after the throw. C'mon, Joe... first play of the game? The pass did look catchable, but VD didn't fully extend his arms. Probably had to do with a LB hanging over his back. QB and TE expected an interference call.
2nd and 10 at SF 33 M.Manningham right end pushed ob at DET 38 for 29 yards (D.Florence).
nice misdirection reverse handoff to Rio... defense heavily bit on RB fake weakside... excellent blocks from Miller and Crabtree on the DBs wide. LE really bit hard and that allowed Miller to take out DB instead of having to focus on LE (Avril)
1st and 10 at DET 38 A.Smith pass short left to M.Crabtree pushed ob at DET 21 for 17 yards (J.Wendling). Caught at DET 25. 4-yds YAC
an extra blocker in Walker allows Boone to pull and pass block weakside and block the RE that Hunter missed on cut block... all blocks were solid otherwise. Pass was high but Crabtree snagged it in stride.. great hands shown there. (Moss did look open for a TD on a deep post... can't be certain of where a S may have been)
1st and 10 at DET 21 A.Smith pass deep left to V.Davis for 21 yards, TOUCHDOWN. 0 6
Alex changes play... Lions send 5... pocket gradually closes but blocks were pretty solid all around... perfectly placed pass for the TD. Gore stays in to block and picks up the RE as Iupati switched off on inside LB. (pass was quick anyway, but good to see the teamwork.
D.Akers extra point is GOOD, Center-B.Jennings, Holder-A.Lee.
1st and 10 at DET 32 K.Smith up the middle to DET 33 for 1 yard (I.Sopoaga).
base 3-4.. Sopo slips right over the right shoulder of the C to blow up this one... Justin, Willis, and Bowman were right there and waiting while dripping saliva
2nd and 9 at DET 33 K.Smith up the middle to DET 36 for 3 yards (P.Willis).
back to Nickel... Ray loses a few thanks to double by RG and pulling LG.. ILBs say "enough of that" and swallow up the RB
3rd and 6 at DET 36 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass short right to C.Johnson to DET 44 for 8 yards (D.Whitner). Caught at DET 37. 7-yds YAC
4mR.. Aldon stunts in.. good pass pro.. Bowman couldn't drag down Calvin at the waist to force punt.. strong tackle Whitner after
1st and 10 at DET 44 M.Stafford pass short left to W.Heller to SF 49 for 7 yards (I.Sopoaga). Caught at 50. 1-yd YAC
base 3-4.... 3mR becomes 2mR after Justin follows the delay RB route... Sopo and Ray just have too many OL to battle through, Stafford has a lot of time... low catch made over middle as Sopo and Aldon converge
2nd and 3 at SF 49 K.Smith left end to SF 48 for 1 yard (D.Goldson). PENALTY on DET-J.Backus, Offensive Holding, 10 yards, enforced at SF 49 - No Play.
Aldon stout fighting the LT and held (slightly facemasked) , and wouldn't have gotten to the sideline in time to stop the outside run.. great job Goldson to fly in and snuff it out
2nd and 13 at DET 41 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass incomplete short right to T.Young (C.Culliver). PENALTY on SF-C.Culliver, Defensive Pass Interference, 33 yards, enforced at DET 41 - No Play.
4mR... gradual pocket closing.. RJF (at LDT) dented the most up front by beating the RG and then shoving the C back.. Culliver was step for step behind the WR and turned for the ball as it arrived to bat it away nicely... really ticky-tack PI call against him.
1st and 10 at SF 26 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass incomplete deep left to T.Scheffler (C.Rogers).
4mR... pass pro was solid on this quick throw... nice job Rogers to bat this away
2nd and 10 at SF 26 N.Burleson right end to SF 24 for 2 yards (C.Culliver).
Brooks a little slow to recognize the reverse, so he's not outside enough to contain it vs TE.. outstanding open field tackle from Culliver near sideline
3rd and 8 at SF 24 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass short right to B.Pettigrew to SF 20 for 4 yards (D.Whitner).
5mR... Stafford gets it out quickly to beat the blitz... thrown underneath on a TE out, but Whitner closes to make a jolting tackle to prevent the YAC
4th and 4 at SF 20 J.Hanson 38 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-D.Muhlbach, Holder-B.Graham. 3 7
J.Hanson kicks 66 yards from DET 35 to SF -1. K.Hunter to SF 25 for 26 yards (T.Whitehead). FUMBLES (T.Whitehead), RECOVERED by DET-K.Osgood at SF 25. K.Osgood to SF 25 for no gain (W.Tukuafu).
1st and 10 at SF 25 (Shotgun) J.Bell to SF 23 for 2 yards (P.Willis).
4mR... great job Justin to stand up LG, clog the rush lane, disengage and make tackle... Justin loses helmet and just don't curr.. Aldon helped contain any possible run to the left vs TE.. Ray, Bowman, and Willis all flying in like rabid dogs
2nd and 8 at SF 23 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass incomplete short right to N.Burleson.
4mR.. no real pressure to speak of.. throw to sideline was well covered by Rogers and overthrown.. probably deliberately.
3rd and 8 at SF 23 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass incomplete short middle to T.Young (A.Brooks).
4mR with Brooks at LOS showing blitz but not.. once the RB stays in to block, Brooks stands and reads QB, times his jump well and bats pass down.. no strong pressure on QB
4th and 8 at SF 23 J.Hanson 41 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-D.Muhlbach, Holder-B.Graham.
1st and 10 at SF 9 F.Gore up the middle to SF 23 for 14 yards (E.Coleman).
Walker shifted and got the smallest of a piece on the penetrating RDT, but that RDT basically over-pursued anyway... Boone stood up Suh and gave up zilch... Goodwin 2nd level swallowed up ILB... Iupati takes the RE mno problem as Staley takes out 2nd level WLB... all went perfectly
1st and 10 at SF 23 (Shotgun) F.Gore up the middle to SF 27 for 4 yards (J.Durant).
Iupati and VD slicing left takes out the RDT... Goodwin gets 2nd level... Boone keeps Suh away from Gore... just a very nice job by free SLB to fly in and make tackle
2nd and 6 at SF 27 F.Gore left end pushed ob at SF 32 for 5 yards (D.Florence).
run set up for strong, but it's all weakside intended.. Staley takes out the RDT with initial help from Iupati... Goodwin beaten around right shoulder by Suh, but it didn't matter... Boone pull blocks to hit RE, doesn't sustain, but didn't matter... key cut block from pulling Walker on WLB.. poor job blocking CB for Rio here
3rd and 1 at SF 32 W.Tukuafu and L.Davis reported in as eligible. F.Gore left guard to SF 32 for no gain (S.Tulloch).
short answer is Joe Staley screwed up. For some reason, he turns right to give the RDT a push in the arse, but there was no need to and what it did was allow the THREE Lbs to converge into the gap to make the run stuff. Staley has to plow forward and help clear out some of that
4th and 1 at SF 32 A.Lee punts 52 yards to DET 16, Center-B.Jennings. S.Logan to DET 26 for 10 yards (B.Miller). PENALTY on DET-T.Whitehead, Illegal Block Above the Waist, 10 yards, enforced at DET 26.
1st and 10 at DET 16 M.Stafford pass incomplete deep right to N.Burleson.
base 3-4... 4mR... no pressure (max protect) and eventually Ray scrapes off a doubleteam to chase Stafford rolling out towards sideline, then just throws it away. Stafford looking confused.
2nd and 10 at DET 16 J.Bell up the middle to DET 20 for 4 yards (D.Goldson).
Justin burst penetration through middle but LG does nice job of getting enough to clear the RB.. Ray initially doubled but after extra OL goes 2nd level, Ray spins back in to help tackle RB... misdirection fools Aldon, but he shows the smarts to not commit too hard to anything... Brooks came around arc but hustled back to RB... Bowman gets well blocked by LT 2nd level.. Willis holding off OL to track RB... Goldson flies in to make great tackle.
3rd and 6 at DET 20 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass deep middle intended for T.Young INTERCEPTED by D.Goldson at DET 43. D.Goldson to DET 23 for 20 yards (J.Backus).
6mR... Really, no urgent pressure considering the extra rush... Stafford throws the most unusual lofted duck pass to... no one.. Goldson. Overthrew his man on an in-route by 10-15 yds. Goldson with a great profile catch.. great effort to maintain the ball on his way down.
1st and 10 at DET 23 W.Tukuafu reported in as eligible. F.Gore up the middle to DET 20 for 3 yards (J.Wendling).
Iupati pulls right and takes out the SLB penetrating in... Goodwin angles out the RDT... Boone neutralizes the LDT with power... because of Boone's quick victory, AD quickly turns attention to block LB 2nd level... FB Tuku gets the other LB... Walker and VD keep LE away... the S ws playing in the box.. might have been the time for a pass audible here, but 3 yds doesn't suck
How Avril didn't get flagged for such an obvious shove with both hands to the helmet of Walker? I'll never understand. The ref was looking RIGHT AT THEM
2nd and 7 at DET 20 F.Gore up the middle to DET 17 for 3 yards (N.Suh).
Timeout #1 by SF at 00:53.
This fail goes to Boone. Suh won the leverage battle and lost no ground, and quickly disengaged to made tackle. Poor jobs by Staley and Tuku in 2nd level cloggage, but still....
3rd and 4 at DET 17 (Shotgun) A.Smith FUMBLES (Aborted) at DET 17, and recovers at DET 34. A.Smith pass incomplete short left to K.Williams.
awful snap by Goodwin... good coordination from Alex to catch it on a bounce and good athleticism to roll out and throw it away at the sticks.
4th and 4 at DET 17 D.Akers 35 yard field goal is GOOD, NULLIFIED by Penalty, Center-B.Jennings, Holder-A.Lee. PENALTY on DET-D.Florence, Running Into the Kicker, 5 yards, enforced at DET 17 - No Play. 6 7
1st and 10 at DET 12 F.Gore up the middle to DET 8 for 4 yards (D.Levy).
Boone pulls in and pops the ILB to remove him from hole... good job neutralizing RDT by Iupati and AD (who lined up weakside)... Goodwin angles of LDT who was taking himself out of play anyway... Miller pops the WLB... another 8 man box we are forcing runs through
2nd and 6 at DET 8 A.Smith pass incomplete short right to R.Moss. PENALTY on DET-J.Lacey, Defensive Pass Interference, 7 yards, enforced at DET 8 - No Play.
AD plays the LE a bit soft here, but overall, and Goodwin losing ground quickly on LDT, but the throw was quick... refs saw the arm hook and made the PI call.... Alex shows his appreciation with some excitement
End of 1st Quarter

|2nd Quarter of Detroit Lions Game 2
1st and 1 at DET 1 L.Davis and W.Tukuafu reported in as eligible. F.Gore left guard for 1 yard, TOUCHDOWN. 6 13
key pull block from Boone to pop a LB and flatten ILB (though Miller gets most credit on 2nd LB)... key block Staley to drive RDT away.. great job Walker on RE KVB to preserve left side of run lane... Tuku was quick to 2nd level, but don't think his choice of block was good.
D.Akers extra point is GOOD, Center-B.Jennings, Holder-A.Lee.
1st and 10 at DET 20 J.Bell left guard to DET 23 for 3 yards (D.Goldson).
Lions really get a hat on a hat here... Ray was scraping down but wouldn't have made it in time... so thankfully Goldson flew in and made the tackle, great play by him
2nd and 7 at DET 23 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass short left to J.Bell pushed ob at DET 32 for 9 yards (T.Brown). Caught at DET 22. 10-yds YAC
4mR.. Rogers blitz from slot as Aldon drops in zone sideline... no great pressure on the throw but Ray stunted in and would have blasted Stafford before too long... Aldon got juked while waiting for the RB after the catch and run.. gave up a about 6 extra yds and a first down here.
1st and 10 at DET 32 J.Bell left end to DET 33 for 1 yard (Ald.Smith).
good job disengaging from TE for Aldon... Justin, Willis, and Bowman also converge with Aldon to stop this run
2nd and 9 at DET 33 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass short middle to C.Johnson to DET 37 for 4 yards (P.Willis). Caught at DET 35. 2-yds YAC
3mR... Brooks drops off to cover RB flat route... pass pro held well, though Aldon was beating his LT late with edge rush and was gonna get Stafford after another second had he held it longer. Immediate and violent tackle by Willis.
3rd and 5 at DET 37 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass incomplete short left to C.Johnson (C.Culliver).
4mR... pass pro held up well, but Stafford threw high to CJ on crossing route with good trail coverage from Culliver.. CJ could only one-hand tip it...
1st and 10 at SF 25 (Shotgun) A.Smith pass short right to D.Walker to SF 32 for 7 yards (D.Levy). Caught at SF 30. 2-yds YAC
AD was instantly beaten around the edge by LE... scary stuff, but Alex's first read was open and the pass was thrown quickly... scary, AD... real scary... all else was fine
2nd and 3 at SF 32 A.Smith pass short left to M.Manningham pushed ob at SF 42 for 10 yards (D.Levy). Caught at SF 36. 6-yds YAC
another scary pass pro from AD, who was quickly shoved back by LE so that LE Avril could cut inside and get to Alex... another quick and accurate pass though. Couldn't see if Alex was hit.
1st and 10 at SF 42 A.Smith pass short right to R.Moss to DET 44 for 14 yards (J.Durant). Caught at DET 45. 1-yd YAC.
blocks were good.. key cut block Hunter on Avril.. nice pass to sideline
PENALTY on DET-N.Suh, Encroachment, 5 yards, enforced at DET 44.
1st and 5 at DET 39 A.Smith sacked at SF 49 for -12 yards (N.Suh).
Timeout #2 by SF at 09:24.
Alex has his 3 seconds and had Miller open at right sideline short, but Alex looking deep middle... holds ball and stays in pocket a second too long... Iupati has his RDT, but does get beaten around right shoulder. Goodwin eventually gets shoved and disengaged from by Suh and Iupati had his back to Suh watching Alex shake the first sack attempt by his RDT.. Alex showing strength in refusing to be dropped to the ground, lolz..
2nd and 17 at SF 49 F.Gore up the middle to DET 39 for 12 yards (J.Wendling).
Boone hard left to wash the RDT away... AD hard right to angle out the LDE... lol! Walker again takes Suh away with angle block... Goodwin misses 2nd level block, but diving WLB can't get a piece of Gore anyway... Iupati walls off RE... Staley misses his LB block, but again, LB can't get through Goodwin and other LB's path to make tackle... VD with effective block on SLB, but eventually fails to sustain... safeties converge for tackle
3rd and 5 at DET 39 (Shotgun) A.Smith pass incomplete short middle to M.Crabtree.
OL quickly losing ground here... AD picks up the blitz CB... Gore was slow and didn't get up far enough for decent pickup of blitz SILB... almost swatted the pass... quick throw to beat blitz DROPPED by Crabs here. DROP # 1
4th and 5 at DET 39 A.Lee punts 25 yards to DET 14, Center-B.Jennings, fair catch by S.Logan.
1st and 10 at DET 14 K.Smith left guard to DET 20 for 6 yards (P.Willis).
base D... Sopo engages the C and angles his way as he scrapes towards outside run.. He does get doubled a bit in the pile at this point... same goes for Ray vs the RT and then TE... a nice cut back lane opens because Brooks, who is free, is out wider than he should be + makes a very slow read on QB/RB as if worried about PA... Willis recovers brilliantly as he cuts back to meet the RB.. Brooks, Goldson, and Rogers converge just in case.
2nd and 4 at DET 20 K.Smith left guard to DET 25 for 5 yards (R.McDonald).
back to Nickel... Ray holds the POA vs RG, and C gets 2nd level, but Bowman quickly disengages to make tackle... Brooks' outside rush took him out of the play.. Justin was slightly held for a second from LG.. Willis worked his way around traffic to converge with the RB after Bowman did
1st and 10 at DET 25 M.Stafford pass short left to N.Burleson pushed ob at DET 36 for 11 yards (P.Willis). Caught at DET 21. 15-yds YAC
base 3-4.. 4mR.. not much pressure till the end when Aldon slips around the "TE/FB" block.. Stafford finds the open WR in the flat after he ran a reverse... Willis shoves him out after the catch and run at sideline
1st and 10 at DET 36 K.Smith left end to DET 38 for 2 yards (J.Smith).
Nickel... 4mR... Justin and Aldon stout on the LG and LT.. Goldson fills hard after Justin and Aldon converge for tackle.
2nd and 8 at DET 38 K.Smith right guard to DET 40 for 2 yards (P.Willis).
Justin pops the hell outta the LG and nearly slides in for tackle.. wants a hold call and probably should have gotten it... Ray and Brooks stout vs RG and extra OL strongside... C and RT quickly disengaged by Willis and Bowman as they converge on tackle... powerful hit by Willis.. man, these ILBs are special!
3rd and 6 at DET 40 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass deep left to C.Johnson to SF 36 for 24 yards (D.Whitner). Caught at SF 43. 7-yds YAC
5mR... Ray gets the most collapse of OL, but Stafford has enough time... pass just gets past Brooks who dropped from LOS and played deep underneath.. Whitner closes. Oh, but if Brooks had turned his head back to the QB a second earlier...
1st and 10 at SF 36 (Shotgun) K.Smith up the middle to SF 33 for 3 yards (J.Smith).
Brooks pushes upfield + angles RT to take away outside run chance... Ray anchors well and spins once he see RB path.. Justin anchors remarkably well vs LG and brief LT and snatches the RB with his right arm... C engages Bowman but he dives low past him to clog.. RT gets to Willis and keeps him away at first..
2nd and 7 at SF 33 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass incomplete deep middle to T.Young. PENALTY on SF-C.Rogers, Defensive Holding, 5 yards, enforced at SF 33 - No Play.
was a 4mR until Justin locked in on RB coming out as a relief valve.. Brooks gets upfield before taking a T/G double team... Aldon quickly shoves the LT back towards QB... ball overthrown and I am more than a little curious as to why Brown didn't try to reach for an INT there.
1st and 10 at SF 28 (Shotgun) K.Smith right guard to SF 21 for 7 yards (N.Bowman).
Brooks gets angled out by TE... Ray was initially beaten by the RG.. RT comes out to block Willis, and Willis quickly disengages for the 2nd tackle... C briefly gets Bowman but he too disengages to make first tackle.
2nd and 3 at SF 21 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass incomplete short left to C.Johnson (N.Bowman).
4mR... gradual pocket collapse, but enough time given... ball thrown a bit behind CJ on crossing route, so it was juggled and dropped as a tightly trailing Bowman tackles him
3rd and 3 at SF 21 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass incomplete short left to C.Johnson [A.Brooks].
4mR.. Brooks blazes around edge beating RT badly... Aldon coming around other edge, but not as threatening... thrown into tight Rogers + Whitner coverage to CJ
4th and 3 at SF 21 J.Hanson 40 yard field goal is No Good, Hit Right Upright, Center-D.Muhlbach, Holder-B.Graham.
1st and 10 at SF 30 A.Smith pass incomplete deep left to V.Davis (D.Florence).
pass pro was great... pass was on target... VD's hands were closing on the ball... not sure if he'd have held on.. but CB's left hand pulls VD's left arm to plop the ball from his clutches. Vernon didn't play the ball to maximize space between the defender and the ball. He misjudged it's depth/velocity at first and sped up.. then had to slow a bit, which allowed the DB to make a great play. No worries, VD.. you are still a stud. At first, I labeled this a DROP.. but nah.. just a great defensive play.
2nd and 10 at SF 30 F.Gore up the middle to SF 46 for 16 yards (E.Coleman).
Boone pulls to flatten the RDT for important block... Goodwin allows LDT's natural pass rush direction to keep him away from rush lane... key blocks on 2nd level LBs by Staley and Iupati
1st and 10 at SF 46 A.Smith pass incomplete short middle to K.Hunter (S.Tulloch).
all blocks decent except for Staley, who was beaten on an in-out move by RDE who nearly got Alex as he threw it... pass dropped by Hunter as quick curl relief valve... DROP # 2
2nd and 10 at SF 46 (Shotgun) K.Hunter left tackle to SF 46 for no gain (D.Levy).
big fail here was Goodwin's failure to stay in front of 2nd level WLB block..
3rd and 10 at SF 46 (Shotgun) A.Smith pass short right to V.Davis to DET 42 for 12 yards (J.Lacey).
excellent blocks this time all around... bullet to VD caught for the conversion!
1st and 10 at DET 42 (No Huddle, Shotgun) A.Smith pass incomplete short right to F.Gore.
blocks held up for this quick throw, but Gore flat-out drops it over middle... DROP # 3
2nd and 10 at DET 42 (Shotgun) A.Smith pass incomplete short middle to K.Williams (S.Tulloch).
Boone wisely passes off LDT for LE on stunt... AD really struggles to anchor under the power of the LDT... gets shoved back into QB.. pass fired into Kyle W, who can't hang on with ILB up his back... Kyle W wants a flag and could have just as easily gotten one... yells at ref stumbling to his feet as ref ducked from Alex's bullet... looked like really perfect timing from ILB in the replay.. tough to call this one.. could go either way
3rd and 10 at DET 42 (Shotgun) A.Smith pass short middle to F.Gore to DET 41 for 1 yard (D.Levy).
shovel pass option here for Alex. People have suggested that Alex should have kept it himself. I don't think that would have worked either. ILB was coming through and I don't see Alex escaping him for yardage. good awareness and positioning from RE disallowed Boone pull block to get to that RE, and penetration from the strongside was good... play was dead in the water
Timeout #2 by DET at 01:12.
4th and 9 at DET 41 A.Lee punts 32 yards to DET 9, Center-B.Jennings, fair catch by S.Logan.
1st and 10 at DET 9 (Shotgun) K.Smith right guard to DET 10 for 1 yard (N.Bowman).
4mR.. Bowman spying RB brushes off RG block attempt and makes strong RB tackle... beautiful.
2nd and 9 at DET 10 M.Stafford kneels to DET 9 for -1 yards.
End of 2nd Quarter

|3rd Quarter of Detroit Lions Game 2
1st and 10 at SF 20 A.Smith sacked at SF 17 for -3 yards (K.Vanden Bosch). A.Smith handed off to K.Hunter who pitched ball back to A.Smith. PENALTY on DET-K.Vanden Bosch, Face Mask (15 Yards), 15 yards, enforced at SF 17.
Turned out to be a poor time for a trick play flea-flicker here... a S and LB blitz from Lions... The S comes through clean as Staley picks up the LB... Alex tosses to Hunter... Hunter back to Alex.. By the time Alex is almost set to throw, RE is almost upon him as VD just couldn't sustain the outside edge block... Alex steps up to avoid the RE, but now the blitz LB is stepping around Hunter to sack him.. so he cuts hard right and gets away from the LB... but... the RE gets back up and VD quits on the play... so the RE drags Alex down to the ground after yanking mask.
1st and 10 at SF 32 F.Gore left tackle to SF 34 for 2 yards (S.Tulloch).
fake reverse handoff Gore... great job Staley to seal block the RDT off... tolerable pull block on RE from Miller... play just took to long to develop, and there were no apparent blockers to take on the ILB and WLB.
2nd and 8 at SF 34 A.Smith pass short left to M.Manningham pushed ob at SF 47 for 13 yards (J.Wendling). Caught at SF 32. 15-yds YAC
WLB makes this WR screen scary as he flies in but doesn't look toward QB in time to locate the pass or fully get the timing... good block VD on outside CB... poor awareness and block from Walker downfield.. Boone and Goodwin never really had much chance to get over there to set up blocks...
1st and 10 at SF 47 F.Gore up the middle to DET 42 for 11 yards (E.Coleman).
Boone gets 2nd level pop on SLB, but doesn't sustain, and Miller coming through gets a piece of him to keep him irrelevant... of course that keeps Miller from getting a deeper DB block later... much needed block VD on RE, very nice... Goodwin does enough on LDT... good job Staley keeping the RDT out of it. Walker gets downfield shot on S but not enough to keep S from making a tackle
1st and 10 at DET 42 A.Smith pass short right to M.Manningham to DET 37 for 5 yards (J.Durant, J.Lacey).
PA rollout.. strong throw but slightly behind, so Rio catches it off of inside shoulder.. a perfect throw gets Rio a couple more yds, but good gain anyway... all blocks okay.. AD let Suh penetrate so good thing the first read was open
2nd and 5 at DET 37 K.Hunter left end to DET 24 for 13 yards (J.Wendling).
pretty good run block Walker on RE, got away with slight hold... other key block from pulling Staley on WLB... Iupati does just enough to keep RDT away.. Goodwin almost blew it, getting disengaged from hard pursuing LDT.. nice cutblock downfield for Rio on CB
1st and 10 at DET 24 A.Smith sacked at DET 34 for -10 yards (sack split by N.Suh and C.Williams).
terrible job by big LD letting Suh get right into backfield and disrupt this rollout.. AD didn't block through the whistle and allowed the LDT to get Alex after just barely escaping from Suh..
2nd and 20 at DET 34 A.Smith pass short left to V.Davis pushed ob at DET 21 for 13 yards (S.Tulloch) [N.Suh]. Caught at DET 31. 10-yds YAC
Suh shoots immediately inside of Big LD again to drill Alex in right shoulder right after the quick throw... who's side is he playing for??? Great job VD with breaking/slipping 3 tackles.. no problem with the RE from Boone at LT, and Iupati later threw a shot on RE from inside for good measure
3rd and 7 at DET 21 (Shotgun) A.Smith pass short right to M.Crabtree to DET 18 for 3 yards (E.Coleman). Caught at DET 19. 1-yd YAC
blocks held up on really quick throw to beat the blitz... could have had another second or two to see if two of the four deeper routes were worthwhile, but Crabs was open and at 14-6, we seemed content to make sure we stayed with an easy FG.
4th and 4 at DET 18 D.Akers 36 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-B.Jennings, Holder-A.Lee.
1st and 10 at DET 39 K.Smith left tackle to DET 43 for 4 yards (N.Bowman, Ald.Smith).
Justin is stout vs C but gets cut down... LG goes out and blocks Bowman, but the block is weak and Bowman slips around to help tackle RB... Aldon holds up very well vs LT and works way to RB tackle also. Ray was scraping his way there soon after.
2nd and 6 at DET 43 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass short left to C.Johnson to DET 48 for 5 yards (C.Rogers).
4mR.. pass pro was solid, though Justin was collapsing the LG quickly toward QB.. strong throw made with tight Rogers coverage on CJ's back and Bowman underneath to side of him.
3rd and 1 at DET 48 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass short left to K.Smith pushed ob at SF 40 for 12 yards (N.Bowman). Caught at SF 40. 15-yds YAC
4mR... no real pressure and quick throw to the flat RB with room to run... Bowman angles him out of bounds
1st and 10 at SF 40 K.Smith right tackle to SF 40 for no gain (J.Smith).
base 3-4.. Sopo was actually driven back by a double team a few yds as he followed the run direction, but it didn't matter... Justin penetrated inside of the LT and snuffed out the RB beautifully... Bowman flew in as the RB was on his way to the ground.. Ray anchored well vs RT and Brooks was ready to funnel any outside run back in
2nd and 10 at SF 40 K.Smith right tackle to SF 31 for 9 yards (D.Goldson).
back to Nickel... extra OL w/3WRs... Ray gets doubled by C and RG and neutralized.. Brooks anchors and angles to funnel RB inside... Bowman had to guess which gap the RB would come through and guess wrong as Ray's C moved on to block him partially.. strong tackle Goldson coming in to help... best run of the day for them, I think.
3rd and 1 at SF 31 J.Bell up the middle to SF 27 for 4 yards (J.Smith).
base 3-4... Sopo anchors perfectly and nearly penetrates enough to get the RB behind the LOS.. Justin takes the double and does as well as can be expected.. Bowman and Willis had trouble locating the gap to hit because of a nice cut and spin from RB to get away from Sopo.
1st and 10 at SF 27 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass short left to C.Johnson to SF 22 for 5 yards (T.Brown). Caught at SF 24. 2-yds YAC
4mR... Aldon was winning the battle vs LT quickly and getting into QB's face but a quick throw to in route CJ hits the mark.. tight coverage Brown on his back.
2nd and 5 at SF 22 J.Bell left end to SF 22 for no gain (Ald.Smith).
great play by Aldon to keep himself free enough vs LT to snuff the RB out and tackle him as Brown and Brooks from other side hustles over to RB.. Bowman essentially got tackled by an OL..
3rd and 5 at SF 22 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass short left to C.Johnson to SF 22 for no gain (T.Brown, N.Bowman). Caught at SF 23. 1-yd YAC
4mR... quick WR bubble screen, but the pass was so low that the WR could only go down and catch it where he stood. Bowman and Brown converge immediately
4th and 5 at SF 22 J.Hanson 40 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-D.Muhlbach, Holder-B.Graham.
1st and 10 at SF 15 A.Smith pass short right to K.Hunter to SF 24 for 9 yards (J.Durant). Caught at SF 11. 13-yds YAC
screen! Boone and Goodwin get out wide to block downfield... Boone looked rather lazy and didn't set up well enough vs the SLB... Goodwin did fine on the ILB.. AD allowed LE to disengage and hustle back to help make tackle
2nd and 1 at SF 24 K.Hunter left end to SF 27 for 3 yards (J.Wendling).
decent enough block VD on ILB... Iupati couldn't get wide fast enough to be a big factor... Goodwin didn't get to SLB fast enough for an angle to block him.. extremely needed cut block Miller on the WLB.. quick cuts allowed Hunter to get something vs the S...
1st and 10 at SF 27 W.Tukuafu reported in as eligible. F.Gore left tackle to SF 33 for 6 yards (D.Levy).
was a good pull block from Boone on WLB, but he didn't show the nasty by just burying him... so WLB squirmed around him and made stop... VD engaged RE and Iupati finished him off in style.. good block Walker on CB... Tuku shot straight inside and didn't do much o nuthin... was good from Boone to lead the hole for Gore, but I'd like to see Boone destroy whoever is in his path next time.
2nd and 4 at SF 33 A.Smith pass short right to M.Crabtree to SF 46 for 13 yards (J.Lacey). Caught at SF 39. 7-yds YAC
blocks were good... strong throw on the quick slant.. right on the money
1st and 10 at SF 46 A.Smith pass short left to K.Hunter to DET 42 for 12 yards (S.Tulloch). Caught at SF 42. 9-yds YAC
blocks were excellent on this PA... Boone pulls weakside to pass block RE, as VD and Miller stay in to block... pass on the money to Hunter and allows YAC.
1st and 10 at DET 42 F.Gore right tackle to DET 30 for 12 yards (J.Wendling).
key block here was VD sealing off the outside on LE, and remarkable that all 3 LBs over-committed to the inside run and put themselves in a tough spot to recover from... fantastic cut to slip the incoming SS from Frank! He looks as quick and capable as ever.
End of 3rd Quarter

|4th Quarter of Detroit Lions Game 2
1st and 10 at DET 30 D.Kilgore reported in as eligible. A.Smith pass incomplete short right to B.Miller.
poor cutblock from Hunter to LE could have been trouble in the form of a bat down or worse, but the pass did look to high for either... all other blocks were fine.. good adjustment by Miller on the pass, but just can't drop those, Bruce... DROP # 4
2nd and 10 at DET 30 A.Smith pass incomplete short right to D.Walker.
OL collapsed from all over and quickly... lucky to get the pass out at all... Staley pushed back into Alex by RE.. easy pass for Walker, but he turned to look ahead and just dropped it... for shame.. DROP # 5
3rd and 10 at DET 30 (Shotgun) A.Smith pass incomplete short middle to M.Manningham.
AD did just enough to wash LE out of QB's harm... Staley was losing the battle vs RE but Iupati helped save him... beauty of a intermediate pass on IN route for Rio... but Rio just drops this one.. probably scared of a possible S hit after, but don't these guys know they typically get hit either way? Alex starting to look pretty displeased.. DROP # 6
4th and 10 at DET 30 D.Akers 48 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-B.Jennings, Holder-A.Lee. 9 20
1st and 10 at DET 20 (Shotgun) K.Smith right tackle to DET 24 for 4 yards (N.Bowman).
decent job Brooks on TE keeping run inside but I'd have liked him to hit the inside step quicker.. Ray loses a couple yds vs RG, but anchors enough to do a good job minimizing loss of yds and makes tackle... Justin vs LG stout as he works way to rush lane.. C gets Bowman 2nd level, but Bowman quick to disengage and clog to RB.. Willis blocked by RT well, but has last laugh as he shoves RT back into pile.
2nd and 6 at DET 24 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass deep middle to C.Johnson to 50 for 26 yards (D.Goldson). Caught at DET 40. 10-yds YAC
4mR... pocket collapsing from multiple spots, but Stafford stepped in nicely and delivered.. had a clear lane when Ray took his rush to the right.. Rogers beaten by a double move from CJ.. Goldson with the low tackle.
1st and 10 at 50 K.Smith up the middle to SF 47 for 3 yards (N.Bowman, P.Willis).
Ray struggles with the RG and loses some ground... Justin stands up the LG and throws himself to the left to meet the RB... great job Willis to absorb LT block and quickly disengage to violently pop the RB.. Bowman steps around C block attempt + the Ray battle to also tackle the RB.
2nd and 7 at SF 47 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass short middle to T.Scheffler to SF 34 for 13 yards (C.Rogers, D.Goldson). Caught at SF 40. 6-yds YAC
4mR... Justin and Aldon were driving the LG and LT back towards QB but Stafford liked his wide open TE quickly.. Rogers and Goldson converge, and Goldson needs to not hit his CB like that on the way down... ouch, Carlos.. glad u iz okay!
1st and 10 at SF 34 (Shotgun) M.Stafford up the middle to SF 23 for 11 yards (P.Willis).
Stafford sees a lane and takes off. Looks like a designed QB run, as the C was running down field looking for a block despite never having turned to see what Stafford was up to. Justin almost gets him as he leans hard left off of the LG. Stafford slides awkwardly at the knees as Willis dives and gets some of him. The lil wuss cries to refs about Whitner making sure he was tackled, lol
1st and 10 at SF 23 K.Smith left guard to SF 21 for 2 yards (N.Bowman).
Ray got moved off a bit by the RG ( I think Ray is wearing down now... coaches need to sub him out ).. great job Bowman getting in to tackle as Goldson and Justin converge
2nd and 8 at SF 21 (Shotgun) M.Stafford sacked at SF 36 for -15 yards (A.Brooks). Detroit challenged the runner was down by contact ruling, and the play was REVERSED. (Shotgun) M.Stafford sacked at SF 30 for -9 yards (R.McDonald).
Stafford has a slow 3 seconds.. just can't make up his mind.. Ray poses the first threat and Brooks is soon to follow.. so QB runs left and Aldon is right there to wrap him up.. or did he? or didn't he? or did he? Yes he did... but Stafford got up quickly to keep trying and then Brooks quickly hauled him down. Lions challenge which of our rush LBs made the sack, LOL!
PENALTY on DET-N.Burleson, False Start, 5 yards, enforced at SF 30.
3rd and 22 at SF 35 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass short left to K.Smith to SF 30 for 5 yards (P.Cox). Caught at SF 38. 8-yds YAC
3mR... Justin gradually bulling his LT back towards QB but quick throw to RB in flat with room to run... Cox is the closest and goes to dive tackle, but RB dives first just under him for yardage..
4th and 17 at SF 30 J.Hanson 48 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-D.Muhlbach, Holder-B.Graham.
1st and 10 at SF 21 F.Gore left end to SF 20 for -1 yards (D.Levy).
VD and Staley struggle but do enough to keep the RE and RDT busy but Iupati didn't pull far enough outside and ended up engaging VD's RE... leaving the WLB free
2nd and 11 at SF 20 (Shotgun) A.Smith pass short right to V.Davis to SF 24 for 4 yards (S.Tulloch, J.Durant). Caught at SF 18. 6-yds YAC
blocks were acceptable for this quick throw to VD on a curl...
3rd and 7 at SF 24 (Shotgun) A.Smith pass short right to M.Crabtree pushed ob at SF 31 for 7 yards (E.Coleman). Caught at SF 30. 1-yd YAC
quick pass to beat the blitz.. Gore coming over weakside to help pick it up... AD allowing inside penetration, but stayed in front and did enough.. big 3rd down conversion with 7:47 left
1st and 10 at SF 31 W.Tukuafu and L.Davis reported in as eligible. F.Gore left tackle to SF 27 for -4 yards (D.Levy).
VD was instantly beat inside by the RE.. Boone pulls and gets tripped badly by the legs of VD's RE that penetrated through... the WLB penetrates right through the gap since Miller completely missed his lead block on him.. Staley goes 2nd level and blocks no one... Tuku misses block on outside DB.. the only person that did their job here is Iupati who angled out the RDT... what mess
2nd and 14 at SF 27 (Shotgun) A.Smith pass incomplete short left to F.Gore.
Gore runs out in the flat and nearly gets hit in the thigh by the pass. Was he blindfolded? Frank looked completely unprepared for a pass. Very unusual play..
3rd and 14 at SF 27 (Shotgun) A.Smith pass short middle to M.Crabtree to SF 43 for 16 yards (D.Florence, J.Wendling). Caught at SF 30. 13-yds YAC
LE flies past AD's outside shoulder, but just misses swipe off QB's waist... strong pass over the middle, nice snag Crabs... just a beauty of a cutblock soon after by Gore on SLB to open up enough YAC for Crabtree. Also good block from Rio on DB to make the YAC happen
1st and 10 at SF 43 W.Tukuafu reported in as eligible. A.Smith pass short right to F.Gore to DET 42 for 15 yards (D.Levy). Caught at SF 38. 12-yds YAC
real quick swing route pass to Gore... Gore makes great inside cut to shake the SLB.. gets a weak block initially from Boone downfield but his presence alone does help. AD probably should have cut up field quicker to block for Gore, but fair enough, he was making sure Gore's backside was clear from the SLB.
1st and 10 at DET 42 K.Hunter left guard to DET 42 for no gain (A.Spievey).
Boone lunged and missed RE on his pull block.. RE only grabbed Hunter jersey for a second.. a bigger problem was Miller missed 2nd level block of WLB and Iupati sealed the RDT for a moment but failed to sustain..both Walker and Miller somehow missed the WLB and ended up blocking the ILB... another mess... Lions intensity is higher as desperation increases
2nd and 10 at DET 42 A.Smith scrambles right end to DET 22 for 20 yards (J.Wendling). PENALTY on SF-D.Walker, Offensive Holding, 10 yards, enforced at DET 32.
was good pass pro, but Alex didn't like any options and took off.. he slid feet first well before the S drilled him with a forearm to the head. Remarkable that this wasn't flagged... so clear... If that were Rodgers, Brady, or Brees? That gets called every time. Walker gets flagged for a hold instead... thanks, Delanie!
(Shotgun) F.Gore up the middle to DET 41 for 1 yard (J.Durant).
good pull block 2nd level on LB by Staley... RB didn't make it that far though.. Iupati did just enough to angle RDT away, but actually helped clog the lane a bit... Goodwin and Boone do just enough to keep the LDT busy... SLB sliced in nicely to make tackle.. Goodwin was likely assigned to go 2nd level for the LB, but never got off of the LDT in time...
3rd and 9 at DET 41 (Shotgun) A.Smith pass short right to M.Crabtree to DET 30 for 11 yards (J.Durant). Caught at DET 35. 5-yds YAC
nice quick throw and the blocks were fine... CB missed diving tackle.. the momentum of Crabtree couple with the SLB tackle from the back gets Crabtree over the marker to convert...
Timeout #1 by DET at 03:23.
1st and 10 at DET 30 K.Hunter left end to DET 23 for 7 yards (A.Palmer).
Timeout #2 by DET at 03:11.
Miller shifts out to get good seal block on RE... important block by Walker to keep the WLB away.. Goodwin misses ILB 2nd level... IUpati able to wall off the RDT... Staley pulls and barely gets any block of the extra LB in this package, but he gets enough to allow Hunter some yardage before that LB makes tackle from behind...
2nd and 3 at DET 23 W.Tukuafu reported in as eligible. A.Smith pass short right to V.Davis for 23 yards, TOUCHDOWN. Caught at DET 17. 17-yds YAC 12 26
Nice PA rollout... good thing the SLB was at the LOS showing blitz, so it was fortunate for us... he couldn't recover and get back to cover VD in time... the large RE was coming free to QB after VD's block and release, but Alex had enough space and lofted the pass to VD... the SLB was running so hard to make up room that VD was able to stop and allow the over-pursuit take the SLB away from him... the S coming over also didn't expect VD to cut back in from the sideline, so he over-pursued as well and ate his dust...
D.Akers extra point is GOOD, Center-B.Jennings, Holder-A.Lee.
1st and 10 at DET 20 (Shotgun) M.Stafford sacked at DET 13 for -7 yards (Ald.Smith).
4mR... both Ray and Brooks (standing up next to Ray!) run a stunt with Brooks as the battering ram... BOTH nearly get QB but were a lil wide... so QB steps into the pocket and meets Aldon! LOLz!
2nd and 17 at DET 13 (No Huddle, Shotgun) M.Stafford pass incomplete short middle to K.Smith.
4mR same set-up... gradual pocket collapse but pass pro was solid.. overthrew his target tightly covered by Willis from behind..
3rd and 17 at DET 13 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass short right to J.Bell pushed ob at SF 37 for 50 yards (T.Brown). Caught at DET 10. 53-yards YAC
3 man rush... not much pressure to speak of... screen to RB well set up. OL shoves Willis back and as Willis recovers to make tackle he gets bumped just enough out of the way by Cox... RB breaks Culliver arm tackle.. Goldson well blocked downfield by TE.. finally pushed out of bounds..
1st and 10 at SF 37 (No Huddle, Shotgun) M.Stafford pass short right to B.Pettigrew to SF 32 for 5 yards (P.Willis).
4mR.. no real pressure.. TE route with Willis trailing by a yard.
Timeout #1 by SF at 02:14.
2nd and 5 at SF 32 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass incomplete deep middle to T.Young (D.Goldson) [Ald.Smith]. PENALTY on DET-T.Young, Offensive Pass Interference, 10 yards, enforced at SF 32 - No Play.
4mR... Ray stunts inside around the C/LG and gets front pressure in Stafford's face.. but QB steps aside and then up to deliver a throw just before Aldon smashes him from the side. Ball was thrown too high, but it didn't matter.. O.P.I.
2nd and 15 at SF 42 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass short left to T.Young to SF 31 for 11 yards (D.Goldson). Caught at SF 36. 5-yds YAC
4mR.. Ray was beating the RG around outside shoulder to get pressure... Justin took the double and still made a nice dent in the middle... Brooks struggled to get free of the RT (hold).. Aldon was working his LT back towards QB... pass on the money with soft coverage from Brown... WR goes to the ground before Goldson could lay the wood.
3rd and 4 at SF 31 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass incomplete short middle to B.Pettigrew (P.Willis).
4mR... clean pocket... beautiful tight coverage from Willis on TE slant.. ball slightly thrown behind TE, and Willis pokes it free
4th and 4 at SF 31 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass short middle to C.Johnson to SF 9 for 22 yards (C.Culliver). Caught at SF27. 18-yds YAC
4mR.. Ray slipped down right away.. pretty clean pocket again.. quick throw to CJ on crossing route... Brown got illegally picked by in route from TE... Whitner hits hard but doesn't get CJ down... hard low tackle Culliver
Timeout #3 by DET at 01:45.
Timeout #2 by SF at 01:45.
1st and 9 at SF 9 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass incomplete short right to J.Bell.
4mR... no real pressure, but Aldon was working the RG back towards QB.. Lions TE tried to "pick" Bowman but Bowman broke wide so TE had no contact... Bowman had great coverage on the RB at the pylon, and RB slipped but very doubtful he had any shot of catching it.
2nd and 9 at SF 9 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass incomplete short middle to T.Scheffler.
5mR... but it was picked up well... ball to TE was a bit behind him and Rogers had tight coverage trailing and helped break it away. Would have been a TD had it been thrown more out in front
3rd and 9 at SF 9 (Shotgun) M.Stafford pass short middle to B.Pettigrew for 9 yards, TOUCHDOWN. 18 27
4mR... quick dart squeezed in between tight Willis + Whitner coverage to TE.
J.Hanson extra point is GOOD, Center-D.Muhlbach, Holder-B.Graham.
1st and 10 at SF 25 A.Smith kneels to SF 24 for -1 yards.
2nd and 11 at SF 24 A.Smith kneels to SF 23 for -1 yards.
3rd and 12 at SF 23 A.Smith kneels to SF 22 for -1 yards.
