Jag fans will defend Gabbert to no end. It is insane. Even saying he had a good game.

Not sure what game they were watching.

Titus is going to play himself behind Broyles in no time.


That's what I started to think last week. For whatever reason his head doesn't seem to always be in the game. I think it's just a matter of time before Broyles establishes himself as a far more reliable target for Stafford and grabs a bigger role in the offense.


Broyles has better hands and works hard after the catch as gets his footing and confidence he will surprise many Lions fans. OU with Broyles was a much different team than without.

He's going to rival CJ for catches next year Cool


Calvin is not really a high volume catch guy though. He is a YPC guy. They will both do very well.

He still leads the lions in catches though. CJ YPC, Broyles underneath, Bell on the outlet and LeShoure running is a nice set up.

One other point. If the Lions could add another good blocking lineman the running game would be there. LeShoure and Bell can run the ball when there's an opening.

Broyles will end up being the best compliment to Calvin we've seen. I won't be surprised if he doesn't become one of the best slot receivers in the game.

That's pretty typical. When Stafford has played poorly as far back as his rookie season Lions fans have defended him no matter what.

Garbage TD so fans can say Gabbert and Blackmon had good games. Laughing

Difference is Stafford was a lock for #1 pick and a ton of people said Gabbert should not have gone round 1.

I don't think defending a player has much to do with pre draft opinions.

It's natural for fans to lack objectivity.

It is nice going into a game knowing how lopsided it should be. It is better that Detroit was able to finally back it up.

.500 and a long road ahead but team is clicking

The offence has shown some steady improvement. They are more balanced and have demonstrated an effective running game WHEN the blocking is there.

Broyles is settling in.

The offence just has to find a way to be in synch from the opening drive.

I feel a great deal better than I did prior to the Seattle game. The season really depends on how the Lions play the other North teams.

The losses against the Vikings and Bears hurt.

Think Ten loss hurts most really.

They all hurt but from a divisional race perspective North game are more important.
