    Sitting here watching the Lie-Downs play Houston, and it's reached the point where I have to amuse myself by laughing at how many amazing stats the Lions are putting up. The most recent one was total offense in the late 2nd quarter: Texans 200 yards, Lions 16.

    Once again, the Lions went down 21 points before they responded (something like the 4th time in 6 games that Detroit has been in such a position).

    To be fair, they did just open the 3rd quarter with a TD, but Houston are driving again and going through the Lions D like a hot knife through butter.

    Can anyone remember a worse team than the Lions in the last generation? They have now lost something like 15 of their last 16. That's gotta be close to a record.

    Fair point. Over the last 25 years, the Lions have won 150 games, the Bengals 152. So......both crap.

    Not so much. I just don't like hoops. Any game where the last 30 seconds can last 2 hours frustrates me.

    My Bucs. When we entered the league in 76 we went 0-26. Talk about painful.

    Amen!

    Hey, you guys almost beat my Vikings last week!

    Even if the Lions go 0-16, it will still be a successful season because you finally fired Millen!

    Depressing when something like that is the best thing so far this year!

    Off topic I know, but big game next weekend Toro. Reds joint top with Chelsea and the 2 meet at Stamford Bridge.

    Yeah, that's truly awful. Is that when you got your nickname?

    Yeah, Torres isn't going to play, and what, half of Chelsea's squad is injured?

    I didn't see any matches this weekend but I saw Chelsea smoked Boro. It will be a fascinating match, given that Rafa will go in with a 4-5-1 formation in an attempt to throttle Chelsea's midfield and play for a 0-0 draw or a 0-1 smash and grab.

    I'm still not fully convinced that Scolari and the fluidity of Chelsea's new philosophy will win the title this year. You have to have some grit and toughness and be able to close down matches to win the EPL and I thought they were a little lucky to draw ManU. Whatever one might have thought about Mourinho, he could do that in spades.

    What's funny about Scolari is that he is hailed as this attacking manager, but he was roundly criticized for his selection as manager of Brazil, given that his side, Gremio, played such ugly football, and Portugal often tried to grind teams down. So maybe Chelsea will have what it takes to win it all.
