All-Time Victory

Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions would not be bullied into submission by their former division rival the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Instead, they forced five turnovers, Stafford with taped fingers barely threw an incompletion, and Matt Prater drained the game-winning field goal in Florida’s face with almost no time left. Florida can suck our Michigan […]

Take a Knee, Potus

Take a Knee, Potus

For the most public time since his election, Donald J. Trump is, in his crude terms, most definitely losing. Ole racist rhetoric went down south and labeled black NFL players for taking a knee and protesting race relations in their country. His outrageous request to “fire” anyone demonstrating blew up in his face, with demonstrations […]

How a Real Team Does It

Well, happy early 30th birthday to snarf, because that’s the game I’ve been waiting my entire life for the Detroit Lions to play. They got an early lead, played enough defense to hold onto it, capitalized on the other team’s mistakes, and ran the ball home to a 24-10 victory. I knew I’d seen that […]

Ruining the Super Bowl

I hope Atlanta, the NFL, and everyone who watched understands what we just did. Instead of remembering a beatdown of NE, Lady Gaga’s electric halftime performance (the best of all-time with a nod to Prince), and all the festivities, we get to watch a team of Trump supporters parade around for an entire year. The […]

Evil Strikes Back

This is what you get, America: you fuck up everything good. You sit back on your fat fucking ass and you gargle horse shit food and advertising down until you’re unable to distinguish team from team. This is tragically fitting. We got LUCKY in 2016: Peyton & Denver; LeBron > the Warriors; the Cubs comeback. […]

How Does It Feel?

Dear Green Bay, You talked a lot of shit. A LOT of fucking SHIT. I want you to know, from the bottom of my Lions heart, how happy it made me and every non-Packers fan to see you collapse on the biggest stage possible. Enjoy the Super Bowl with the rest of us, ya shmucks. […]

SUCK IT, GREEN BAY!

SUCK IT, GREEN BAY!

Devastation Island

No big deal… just fuck our Detroit/Michigan lives! Incredible job, referees! Kudos for organizing your strategic effort to cheat so precisely. 4th & goal? Perfect timing! Deep ball – why not?! Look, Cheate Carrol and fellow Cheathawks: I have 0 respect for you. Down 10-6 entering the final quarter, the NFL was too afraid we’d […]

#6 Seed? Fair Enough

Nope, it’s not what we wanted. Losing 31-24 in front of our home fans for the second time this year to Green Bay for the division title definitely blew balls. BUT – we have punched our ticket to the playoffs, and no one can take that from us. As coach Jim Caldwell stated, 12 teams […]

Unprepared for the Big Time

This is a difficult article to write because I hate to blame the fans: but you disgust me, Detroit. You abandoned your city, and you are leaving your team to die. You don’t care, it’s cool. I know you don’t. Besides the Red Wings, who were chock full of Hall of Famers, I’ve watched ONE […]

Not Going to Cut It, Detroit

I think we can all hear David Bowie saying, “Under Pressure,” right about now. While the Lions eliminated fellow division foe Minnesota from playoff contention with their loss today, the dreaded division rival Green Bay Packers survived a lucky win in Chicago to creep within one game of us. There are two left. And the […]

Lions Finally Win by Double-Digits

That was a nice win by Detroit on the road. We really shut Drew Brees and the New Orleans offense down, limiting them to 13 points. They only could capitalize on some big plays – let’s close out those quarters proper down the stretch. Look, this is huge. We keep rolling one week at a […]

At the Buzzer… It’s Goo–od!

The Lions did it. A frustrating game the referees seemed determined to keep close broke it’s tie as time expired and Matt Prater’s 40-yard field goal aired through the uprights. I honestly couldn’t believe it. A few tears escaped my eyes as my dad, brother and I embraced… my bro had shown up for Thanksgiving […]

Lions Escape with Poor Play

Much like Michigan, maybe it’s worth taking an early look in the mirror instead of rolling through the season with mistakes uncorrected. In my humble opinion, Matthew Stafford is doing a better job calling plays for the Detroit Lions than the coaches are. We managed to win at home against a mildly talented Jacksonville Jaguars […]

Lions Rescue Season at the Buzzer

The Lions led 14-0, 21-7, and 21-10 at halftime – but failed to score for almost the entire second half en route to a 23-21 Eagles lead. Luckily, they fumbled in the waning minutes, allowing Matthew Stafford & company to march down and allow Matt Prater to ice the game with a field goal. The […]

THAT’S HOW THAT’S DONE

LIONS TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS. Yeah, we led 21-3 – yeah, our lack of a secondary allowed it to eventually be tied at 28 – but General Stafford would not be denied nor stopped, upending the opposition with a last second drive that gave our bum kicker a redemption song. Stafford switched it up brilliantly […]

Dear Peyton,

Before my brother and I went to Detroit to see our G last year (knowing it very well may be our last chance… good call), I wrote Peyton Manning this letter:        

Star Wars: Super Bowl 50

Much thanks to https://brorlandi.github.io/StarWarsIntroCreator/ Happy Easter everyone!
