hey now, we do not wish harm on players. You know that.

Cmon how bout we wish Justin Smith give Stafford some tea bag action instead?

Stay classy. Meanwhile I'm sure I'll get a ban for posting stats and countering factually incorrect assertions. Would enjoy seeing this place post-game.

It's circular reasoning... "The Lions didn't beat a winning team last year. Why? Because the Lions beat them" Basically what you're saying is that in some situations it proves something to lose to a team that is on the edge of having a winning record... Lets say the 49ers were in a similar situation at the end of the year and they were playing a division team that they had beaten previously and is currently 8-7... If the game meant nothing to the 9ers, you're saying that they would gain credibility by throwing the game so they could say they beat a winning team?

It also implies that somehow there is a huge difference between a team that ended the year 9-7 vs one that ended 8-8... As if there is some sort of credibility that comes with beating last year's Titans vs last years Cowboys...

Not to mention, what that would mean if the Lions win tonight... After all, Stafford can't beat a winning team... If you lose tonight, hang on fellas... You're in store for a losing season!

I get it though... It makes you feel all warm and cozy citing these meaningless stats... Like it makes you feel nice when the people on TV talk good about your team... Or any of the other 200 pages plus of mostly nonsense that this forum has cited... It's like your blanky when you're a kid... It's reassuring even though it serves no actual function other than soothing your fears...

As long as you stay to your argument, and do not slip into trollish behavior, there is no reason why you cannot continue to post here. The second, though, that you incite or fail to follow the rules of this establishment, I suspect you would get run. Again, I told you, we are a cordial bunch, but we do have rules.

that is the great thing about our defense, we are the most physical team in the nfl but far from being dirty, the lions have the market cornered on that. dirty is not another word for physical though mislead lions fans believe this to be true. oh we will punch them in the mouth and they will slink away into the night.

Why would they give you any credit for winning a game that is so clearly in the bag?

We wont see you though. Just like the Packers fans you will run and hide in a cave.

i was just playing around guys... id rather win fair and square. just trying to get this lions fan all heated! lol

look lion fan.. just cause you pass for more yards a game doesnt mean anything. like i stated earlier.. you guys are extremely pass heavy, so you should have more passing yards.. you have also stated you have an extremely talented front 7. now that may be true but you need to remember we THE BEST FRONT 7 OUT OF ALL 32 TEAMS IN THE NFL. that is a FACT not opinion. our team is more talented than yours overall. believe in your team but dont just come in here with crazy stats about passing when obviously we arnt a pass first team.

our defense is better than yours in every position... suh isnt better than smith so dont even bring that up.

on offense.. id take our line over yours because i think its better overall cause the lions line is terrible in run block. your wideouts are prolly better than ours just cause of megatron.. but to be honest with you i would take smith over stafford every day of the week. im su re you dont agree with that though.

You apparently don't understand the point of the stat. It's not implying that the Lions can't beat mediocre teams that are 8-8 or 9-7. The telling part of the stat is that the LIONS AREN'T ELITE because they haven't won a game against a team better than mediocre. You want us to take your team seriously, which many of us do, don't come on here and act like you are an ELITE TEAM and your passing yards stats are proof of that. We proved ourselves last year to be ELITE. We are a better team in all 3 phases of the game. You could beat us tonight, but that's because there is parity in this game. Regardless of what happens in this game, I guarantee you that we finish with a better record and progress further in the playoffs.

Go, Niners, go!

RGIII had a bigger game passing (320 yards) in his debut than Alex Smith has had in his career (311). Yet, I keep hearing about this fierce 49ers passing attack. Just be honest, the 9ers are a run-heavy, defense led team. The Lions matchup well vs. those factors - our front 7 is highly talented vs. the run and the Lions offense has too many weapons for any defense. Especially in a league where the rules favor the pass.

Sooo.... When we win are we gonna see you back on the boards, or are you gonna hide like every over opponent fan we have had on the zone?
