Detroit Lions Must Find Pair of Home Wins in Next 2 Weeks
It’s a tough week at Allen Park, MI; the Detroit Lions are back to work and have to sit through the most painful film session yet. What is more worrisome is that coach Jim Schwartz is too prideful and shows no signs of accountability for the mistakes against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Lousy execution, benching Reggie Bush and a pathetic fake field goal during the fourth quarter are too much to digest. The Lions needed whatever points they could get on the board after being held to just 78 yards on offense. I think Schwartz could have taken the next right action to benefit the team and not go for the famous “dagger to up 11.”
Heading into the Thanksgiving week the Lions play two home games in a relatively short week; on Sunday they play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Thursday they host the Green Bay Packers. There are a few action items that need to be mentioned if Detroit is going to pursue a playoff run. As logical as they can sound these are non-negotiable. Coach Schwartz needs to put a bigger dagger in opponents and bag the win early. It is very frustrating to hear him ramble on after the game. The Lions have to win big against Tampa Bay. They have the offensive explosiveness and the need to redeem themselves with the fans at Ford Field. Aaron Rodgers needs to continue to stay on the bench for the Backers during the Thanksgiving game. He is an elite quarterback, and yes, I am afraid of the Packers with Rodgers.
Enough excuses coach Schwartz and what a terrible post-game nonsense after Sunday’s loss. The Detroit Lions’ fans around the world hope you can put the promised dagger in all of the remaining games and secure a playoff appearance.

raining camp is underway, which is a welcome sign for most. But for some, I'm sure they wish these first few days would have gone a little differently. An injury to one is an opportunity for many others. And now that we know for sure who is, and isn't going to be available for the first preseason game on Aug. 9 we can take a look at some of the guys who are looking to capitalize on their opportunity.
