For once, the Detroit Lions got the breaks to win, so let's enjoy it

Enjoy it.


Normally we’re the one’s bitching about a ball that didn’t bounce the right way. That’s been the story for the last 30+ years. But the bottom line is that in the history of THIS forum, we’ve always agreed on at least one thing: this team has always struggled to find a way to win, while their opponent has always gotten the better of them. Well, we’ve found a way the last two games, not playing our best, and still coming away with a win.

We’re 3 games in, and could just as easily be 3-0.

Maybe KC wipes the floor with us. They’re doing that to everyone. Or maybe we play a complete game and give them hell.

Either way, I’ll take where we’re at, in a season where frankly no one had expected much from us.


The Eagles got some breaks, too. Two teams played ugly. We played just pretty enough.

We beat two playoff teams in a row, so I’m going to enjoy it. I thought 1-3 or 0-4 was possible to start the season, if not likely, and we’re one bad timeout away from 3-0. I’m not sure we’re good enough to win pretty games like the elite teams, so I’ll gladly take some hard-fought ugly W’s. We’ve got time to clean things up and improve too, especially considering it’s game 3 of a new offense.

Good to see you HBB!

You as well, Notfshnsunday! I haven’t been active in recent years, but I’m happy to see the true Den alive and well.
