Definitely need to fix the defense. The talent is there. The coaching seems to be lacking
I just looked at our upcoming schedule though, and the next several games are very winnable. Chicago has a good defense, but can’t do squat on offense. Dallas could go either way. Just need to play the Dallas team that has been out there the last 3 weeks.
If we can’t win the next 2. I am all in on the sky falling at that point. The Lions are a better team than the Raiders and Giants
Adrian, clearly you don’t fan hard enough! Be better! Every morning you get up, look in that mirror, and say “Adrian! Today is the day! Today is the day I’m going to excitedly wag my giant Honolulu blue giant foam finger harder than anyone before me ever has!”
You can do this man, I have faith in you. Don’t let us all down.
It’s not a coaching issue, it’s a talent issue. Just look at them compared to the Vikings for instance. The Vikings are better at every level outside of QB and even there, I’m.not entirely sure that Cousins is that much of a downgrade on Stafford. Wide receiver and offensive line is arguable. Outside of that, the Vikings are far superior.
The elephant in the room with all the ref mayhem this week is that the Lions had been getting owned in the second half every week. The signs were there that this team was living a bit of a charmed life masking some serious issues and it got exploited today. They just aren’t good enough right now. Maybe it’s a bit of a coaching issue but it’s more of a roster issue than anything else.
I disagree. They have a far better running back, better tight ends and receivers who are just as good. Stafford is better than Cousins but it’s not a huge gap. Put Stafford on that team and they are a serious SB contender. Put Cousins on this team and yikes.
