Next? We need to play the Packers. If we win, and go on to win the NFCN, very few will have the same complaints as they've stated in this thread.

Well we seen the bad on offence.. lets hope that don't happen again.. it seems everytime we play a great db they over gameplan it imo. Games where your qb doesn't have his A game..I don't understand why you don't pound your backs.

Defense.. as much as we committ to stopping the pass you'd think it would look much better. We need some speed to this pass rush.. zig avril suh fairley..

I'm getting annoyed but not given up yet.. we are still good team. We could just as easily catch fire. Thing that worries me the most is calvins knee

Eh?

Funny, I mentioned after losing to the Bucs that this team needed to tighten up:

http://www.mlive.com/lions/index.ssf/2013/11/reggie_bush_gets_his_wish_as_d.html

"It wasn't like a State of the Union. Like, 'Oh my God!'" veteran center Dominic Raiola said. "It's just tightening up the screws -- not letting it get too loose. Just tightening it up.

Not that it takes a rocket scientist to see why, but why wait to lose games to tighten up? Tells me that the coaches and players arent on the same page.

The idea of not panicking, remaining level-headed and so-fourth sounds nice and all, but maybe this team needs a spark and a sense of urgency?

Was it the Giants in the early 2000s with Jim Fassel who were in a similar position as us now, who went on to the Super Bowl after he 'pushed all the chips into the middle of the table'?

Even if something like that proves to be wrong, I would just like to see some sense of freakin life out of this team.

Were always going through the motions and staying patient.

Forget all that, start playing ball, or get out of town.

starts with the coach imo. Someone needs to light a fire under jimmy. He has no in game emotion.. I'm not sure I've ever seen him get on stafford and players need that sometimes. I like my coaches and team to have more passion than this.
