With all due respect I'm not in much of a mood to do any cyber visiting. As much as I like the purple lounge I think I'm going to simply sit in the corner and cry like a school girl. Every time in the past 48 years I think the Lions have assembled a good team I get kicked in the stomach. Crying or Very sad

tell me about your pain after you've lost four Super Bowls, dude. and then lost two more chances to get back to them because of a botched play or two.

Very Happy Crying or Very sad

Any update on Matthew Stafford's health? Did he look ready to get back in the game during overtime?

Perhaps I would understand that pain had the Lions won a playoff game. Crying or Very sad

“Playoffs, you kidding me. I just hope we can win a game!” Coach Jim Mora's quotation always rings a bell with the early season letdowns/meltdowns of our Lions.

He strained a leg muscle in pregame warmups, played, then aggravated it trying to make a tackle on the Titans' strip-return TD.

He's having an MRI today.

"Strained leg muscle."

My guess is that he just pulled a muscle or something and they are doing and MRI just to be sure there aren't any major tears in the muscles.

He did not look like he was having a great time walking around on the sideline.

I hate when people discuss our game they talk about how bad our defense is. We had a solid defense before this game and during this game our special teams and offense gave up 21 points. On top of that, 1 play blew up for 70 yards against our D. The rest of the game we were not that bad. But people say, their D is awful, they gave up 44 points.

The pass defense was ranked 6th in the NFL after the first two games.

Same with week 1: "They allowed 23 points against the Rams!". Well... our defense allowed 16: one TD and three FGs.

It's. Blah. Whatever. Box scores shouldn't be the sole source for forming an opinion.

The pass defense was ranked 6th in the NFL after the first two games.

Because we played Alex Smith and Sam Bradford. Neither of those guys air it out a lot. But when they did pass, the defense gave up easy pickings--both had passing efficiencies above 100. Detroit is 29th in opponents' passer rating, and we're one of only three teams that has yes to record an interception.

Our defense is pretty bad; I don't think you can really argue otherwise. Yeah, there's the "one play blew up for 70 yards" argument, but there was also another one that went for 60+ (Jared Cook's TD). Good defenses don't give up multiple huge scoring plays like that. Jake Locker went for 378 yards, hitting almost 70% of his throws in the process. Jake Locker is one of the NFL's worst starters until he proves otherwise, but he looked like prime Peyton Manning against us. And, even if the defense "only" allowed 21 points, that's still about as many as the Titans scored in weeks 1 and 2 combined. We got zero sacks against a pretty terrible defensive line.

This is coming off a week in which the 49ers ran for 5.5 yards a carry against us, and Alex Smith had similar efficiency numbers to those of Locker. Third downs were easily there for the taking, and the 49ers never really had trouble keeping the clock moving or sustaining drives. Bradford didn't exactly light it up against us, but then again he only passed 25 times. Really, the only solid thing we've done defensively all year is to stymy Steven Jackson, which shouldn't be considered entirely impressive considering he looks like he's pretty much done as an NFL starter.

This team still needs tons of help on defense.
