  1. Lions effort was pathetic.

    Bears lose. Packers lose.

    Lions completely BLOW an entire game FULL of opportunities to win and gain a playoff spot.

    Stafford continues his brain-dead QB play and the D can’t stop the woeful NY O in a critical situation. Nothing different week in and week out.

    Teams that don’t ‘earn’ the playoffs don’t deserve to be there… Lions proved it was a joke to even put their name in the hat.

  2. Can Schwartz watch is on.

    Bring in the Chin! Bring in the Chin!

    Hopefully one of the last post gamers from him:

    “… Where we were, we can’t worry about where we were because it’s where you are in the present. We came up short today. We make no excuses for it.”

    Schwartz characterizes the progress of the organization during his tenure…

    “You know, I don’t know ,” he said. “I have always said that I would wait until the season is over to characterize it. I don’t think I should change that right now.

    “We have come a long way , but we are still not quite there, obviously. We are still a play away from turning these games around…”

    Not ‘quite’ there? Understatement of the season.
    ‘A play’ away? Which play? That’s reversed when you blow 5 – fourth quarter leads.

    If that doesn’t define lost, nothing does.

  3. the difference between the old raiders and now was the Raiders would already be up big when they started getting the personal foul penalties.Now they do it at the worst possible times extending the opponents drive

  4. I think that I disagree with Baldwin. If I had too, I would rather have won, sewn up the playoff home field advantage and then lost to the Rams next weekend to get rid of the era of invincibility. However, I was actually hoping they would have kept that throughout the playoffs all the way to the Super Bowl.

    In any case, Go Hawks!

  5. Don’t worry about anything Seattle, Percy Harvin is waiting in the wings plus you’ve got an actor for a head coach.
