WHERE DO THE LIONS GO FROM HERE?

For this team, playing for tomorrow is tough because “tomorrow” is so far off. There is something to be said about gaining character, but the way in which this team has crumbled in the latter half of the season may not salvage much of it. Not only was this team’s playoff hopes ripped away, it was done mostly at the hands of the team itself. Read more...

Disappointing Loss Against Ravens Raises Concerns and Questions

Once the game clock yesterday hit zero, I couldn’t help but look at the faces of the players and see that they looked dejected, they looked defeated and they looked deflated. It’s only so often that opportunity after opportunity slips through your grasp and you’re left wondering what could have been.  Read more...

Lions Will Need Focus, Not Anger, To Defeat Packers

Without realizing it, I think the insults Josh Sitton threw out there yesterday have given the Lions a little boost of motivation I don’t think would have necessarily existed at the same level prior to.  Read more...

LIONS MUST FIND CONSISTENCY AND CATCH FIRE EARLY AGAINST BUCS

Looking back at last week’s game, I don’t think the players were over confident as much as they tightened up when there was more at stake. 
 
They didn’t necessarily play at the level of a first-place team. Defensively, they allowed Pittsburgh two touchdown plays to start the game, which changed what the Lions were hoping to do offensively. They closed the gap slightly with a field goal, but a fumble allowed the Steelers to take the three points right back.
 
Looking back at the Steelers' game a few more times this, it was clear the Lions weren’t comfortable. I think the two big scores probably took them out of their element early and that compounded the problem.
 
In order to retain their spot atop the division, this team has to eliminate the costly mistakes and play winning football. With only six games left, there isn’t room to lose games as a result of poor performance. 
 
These guys have to regroup and get a win this week against Tampa Bay before the Packers come to town for Thanksgiving.

Lions Biggest Game Is Always The Next

The Lions definitely came out flat last week, which probably had a little to do with riding a winning wave for a couple weeks.
 
They had the huge come-from-behind win against Dallas, a bye to celebrate and then a huge road victory at Chicago to take the lead in the division.
 
It’s hard for teams to sustain that level of excitement and translate it into good play. That feel-good attitude that comes along with a winning streak does fade. Then it comes down to execution.
 
Unfortunately for the Lions, they weren’t able to execute against the Steelers last week. This group hasn’t dealt with sustained success yet and they need to learn how to remain sound and play hungry  in the midst of success.
 
This is a huge game against Tampa Bay. Media and fans will watch closely this week to see how the Lions bounce back from last week's streaky performance. They are still in the driver’s seat, but can’t afford to lose any games down the stretch they are supposed to win.
