    Re: OT: Stafford plays for DET

    Well, color me surprised, honestly. Stafford especially didn't look like he'd be back this soon. It's a good thing though, obviously they wouldn't have a shot at beating GB without them.

    And a good place to post this...Stafford mic'd up in the Browns game. Kid REALLY shows tremendous guts near the end after the shoulder hit, even more apparent here than it was on TV. Maybe the Lions found themselves the real deal for a QB, after all!

    In memory of Mr. Bill: We'll be watching today and GO LIONS!!!!!!!!!!!! :singing:

    That's a tough ************ right there. I've separated my shoulder so bad that I had tendon damage. Trust me when I say that everytime he throws, that thing is going to pop. If he gets hit, forget about it. First time that happens I would be absolutely shocked if he didn't have to leave the game.

    Wow, give the points to Detroit if you're betting. This isn't going to go well for them.

    I think the Lions may actually be a watchable team. Stafford is a real good young QB who seems to be getting the hang of this NFL thing.

    Lions might be buliding a good foundation with Stafford and CJ.

    One difference between the lions and the pats.... You wouldn't see a patriot player celebrating like Word' Daniles did after commiting a blatant penalty.

    Can't watch this ....more commercials than football. I think GB scored during a commercial break.

    It should be 21-0 Green Bay right now. Too many mistakes. They had better cover the damn spread.

    Yes, it is a bad afternoon slate. HOWEVER, people need to stop *****ing about it (i'm not saying u were kontradiction).

    NEWS FLASH = IT AINT CHANGING.

    You want to know why, cause the NFL doesn't need a marque matchup, hell they don't even need a decent matchup on the afternoon slates for thanksgiving, they're gonna win the ratings for the day anyway. EVERYONE watches on thanksgiving. Whether it's GB DET, OAK DAL or NE and NDY....people will watch.

    I know, i hate bad football too. But until all of the TV's get turned off during dinner we're gonna be stuck with bad matchups.

    Had seen that posted before so hope that helps

    Whats the spread?

    I think you are crazy backing a team with a terrible secondary who have injuries now to make it even worse against a QB who threw for over 400 yards last week and Megatron.

    I still think the Packers should win it but its very likely to be a one score game.

    I'm really impressed with Stafford, he has been making something out of nothing in Detroit. A bad offensive line, no running game, god awful defense, etc.. basically thrown into the worst team ever assembled.

    Plus it's funny to see him do better than Sanchez, who is in a perfect situation as a rookie QB to succeed.

    The Lions physicians are just as dependable as the Lions players.

    The announcing... yeesh. Can't wait for Gruden most weeks, but this week it'll be a relief even to hear Jaws.

    Re: OT: Stafford plays for DET

    Agreed with the sentiments here. Detroit looks like it has a football team in its future. They're the butt of NFL jokes now, but I think within five years, this team could be a perennial playoff contender; a lot of youth on that team and what looks like a solid coaching staff.

    Yeah, somehow I missed "wait" - I think Gruden is brilliant as a commentator.

    Yeah I really like listenig to Gruden, I thought Collinsworth would be really good on Sunday nights but I'm not hugely impressed, I think if Gruden decides to stay in commentary you will see him in that slot in a year or two.

    Just watching the Cowboys game and I have a feeling that the Cowboy's OL is not going to hold up all night. It could be a very close game.

    I just got home from work and judging by the highlights, I didn't miss much in the Lions/Packers game. And by the 17-0 score, not much in the Dallas/Oakland game so far...

    Gradkowski is so much better than Russell.
