So a couple things…
The Lions are still the Lions. Whenever they have us thinking they are contenders they shit the bed in spectular fashion.
Then when we have written them off they string off a win or two to just keep that carrot in view
They should change their names to the Detroit Unicorns because on occasion they leap from the woods and wave their mane around. And just when you get close enough…they vanish back into darkness
True to this pattern I think the Lions are going to beat the Bears. We all think they are a dumpster fire right now and rightfully so, but don’t be surprised if the unicorn leaps into the clearing to give us hollow hope once again
Also with this criticism of Stafford lately. What effect will it have? It’s his team and they are going to feed off of his energy. Remember back in the day when Randy Moss had a few dog games in a row with Vikings and they looked bad…the media got on his case in the runup to playing the Lions (of course) and he came out and single-handedly destroyed us
Can Stafford harness this criticism into a performance that silences his critics for a minute?
I predict we slap the Bears around 32-17. Besides all the above reasons I think we will win because it’s the Bears. And fuck them. That’s why
