LISTEN: Oh Boy Lion Fan, QB 1 Is A Major Problem For The Lions

Fans of The Detroit Lions aren’t going to want to hear this, but it appears the main problem in Detroit is QB1, Matt Stafford.

Check out this article on Detroitsportsrag.com.  Moss has great sources and it appears that Stafford is lazy, entitled and thinks he is already the man.  Now we know why he and Schwartz got along so well, they both think they have the NFL figured out and don’t need to work hard.

If you need further evidence, listen to the interview I did with Yahoo.com’s Gregg Doyel.  He said the same thing!

The problem in Detroit is QB1 AND the Head Coach who enabled him.

 



The Lions Are In Trouble!

I think there is a good chance the Lions crush Baltimore tonight at Ford Field, however, I think there is a better chance they screw it  up, lose and miss the playoffs.

That is exactly why the Detroit Lions are so frustrating to their fans.  As a lion fan you have to learn to take the bad with the bad, because there is rarely any good.  The Lions were set up to run away with the NFC North and decided they didn’t want it, they’ve lost three of their last four to teams they should have beaten.

These last three games have the making of an epic collapse that will send the fans base into the mother of all meltdowns and it should. How much longer do the Detroit Lion fans have to put up with the absolute ineptitude of this organization.  I believe that if Jim Schwartz was a “nice” person that treated people with respect within the organization he would be back in 2014 even if they don’t make the playoffs.   That is how pathetic the front office is in Detroit is better to find creative office spaces for rent in Detroit.  However, because he is universally reviled within Ford Field, there is a chance he will get the ziggy after the Lions miss out on the playoffs.

Tonight’s game has all the makings of the Raven’s being led to the slaughter.  Ford Field will be nuts, the players will be stoked, but will the Lions execute?  That is the key….if they come out and turn the ball over and get stupid penalties, the crowd will turn on them quickly.  They MUST come out and take control or the fans there to cheer for them will turn into a nightmare for the home team.  We all remember what it was like for the Bears when they played in Detroit on Monday Night in 2011, it was a house of horrors as the Detroit crowd helped goad the Bears into nine false starts!  “It was great. It was the best I have ever seen Ford Field,’’ Matthew Stafford said. “Created all sorts of problems for Chicago. We’re looking for more of the same.”

The Raven’s aren’t exactly world beaters on the road, they are 1-5 this season, but haven’t we all fell for that routine before?

Frankly, I don’t have any confidence that this team can rise to the occasion because they have shown time and time again that they can’t, tonight that has to change or we are heading toward another tumultuous off -seasons.

Monday Night Football is rare AND special to Lion fans, the Lions can rally the base and make a run at the playoffs starting tonight, anything less than a win is a colossal failure and will plunge the team and the fans into yet another “same old Lions” off-season.

I’m taking the Raven’s in some kind of ridiculous finish, because frankly, the odds are on my side that they blow it badly.

How do you see it playing out tonight?

 



Terry Foster-gate!

Today Terry Foster of The Detroit News wrote a column about race in the Detroit Lions locker room.  Frankly I don’t know why we need another race story other than to draw attention to oneself.  Face it, minority columnists can usually write these columns and never have to deal with the backlash.  You can bet Bob Wojnowski couldn’t and wouldn’t have ever written anything like this one from Foster.

In the column, Foster writes about Lion players Louis Delmas and Tony Scheffler, who have been “best” friends since college at Western Michigan in Kalamazoo.  The article lovingly explains how the white Tight End and the black Safety refer to each other as “N**g(*” and “cracker.” Ugh, this isn’t going to end well.

Foster got national attention for the article today and frankly I like it, it was good to see some straight talk about race.

Later in the day, Lions Receiver Nate Burleson tweeted that the article was wrong and that Schefflerr and Delmas would never talk that way, it was a joke.  Huh, a joke?  You can’t be serious, are you telling me these two knuckle dicks conspired to “cat-fish” Terry Foster into writing an article that everybody knew would get attention?  Wow, I guess players are much more stupid than I gave them credit for, because this “rouse” is ridiculous and should lead to a fine for these idiots.

I’ve know Terry Foster and I doubt he would make this stuff up, Rob Parker and Mitch Albom, wouldn’t surprise me in the least. I trust Terry more than two dipstick NFL players.  I’m also betting Terry Foster has a recording of the interviews.

I’ve seen it a million times, players say controversial stuff, get hell for it from management and immediately backtrack and blame the press, this sounds like one of those times.

This sounds like a total CYA by the Lion players, a distraction the team didn’t need so they need to make it right.  If Foster can produce the tape, and I’m betting he can, these guys should be fined and humiliated for playing fast and loose with a serious issue.

Foster claims Burleson is coming on his show at 2 p.m. tomorrow.  I’m betting that interview NEVER happens!  The Lions will kill it.
