Can we put those disgusting 3 letters to bed until proven otherwise?
Bad plays will happen, bad games will happen, but it doesn’t mean every time a bad play or bad game happens that it’s SOL. It makes the GDTs a hard read at times when every time something bad happens, this ugly phrase gets posted by multiple posters. Good thing the team doesn’t give up like some of the fans do. Lets try to embrace this team, they deserve our support even through the tough times even though the defense in particular can be frustrating to watch at times. They aren’t perfect and, yes, it’s probably a year too soon to be talking SB but they’ve come a long freaking way in a short amount of freaking time.
It’s cool Nate. We’re all fans and emotions can run high in the heat of the moment.
When it boils down to it, this is a good team that’s deserving of our support and we deserve this team after years/decades of pain. I just wish more Lions fans would put that SOL mentality behind and embrace this.
This was an ugly game no doubt but they persevered despite playing their D game and won an NFL game, that’s even more impressive than the good games they play in a way.
Watch the first couple minutes of this. Look at Goff.
You think this guy is happy just to pull within 5? Not a chance. You think he’s focused on anything but getting a win. Not a chance. Dude’s thinking: the job is FAR from done. Prepping for the next opportunity. Not even a WHIFF of SOL in his makeup.
Freakin’ LOVE that guy.
Offense and the defense BOTH sucked til the last few minutes. Three turnovers for the offense speaks for itself. But the defense gave up 25 first downs. Could not get off the field. Bears punted twice all game.
Throw in the fumble by CReynolds and this had the makings of an all-phases collapse.
It was just a terrible game for Goff. Not sure what was up with that but he played like a bad rookie. Until the end. And the typical Lions defense. Unfortunately there, this is who they really are. They’re not that great.
All said and done, the Lions somehow winning this game, is what the good/great teams do…many ppl just not used to it. How many years did we see Erin and GB play like ass against us, but then somehow win in the end? Too many times…
This is kind of a culture shock win…the Bears were the Lions of past today: they pretty much outplayed us and dominated, yet we pulled that shit out and won somehow. It’s what good teams do. Most Lions fans dont know what to do with their hands after this one.
