just now: “…(The Lions) didn’t just beat them, they whooped them-I watched a lot of that game…They were tough and physical on defense…” He said similar about the Lions offense, then, “It’s tough to not like what the Lions are doing.”
Thing is…they all let up about the same time. That tells me the play call was for a quick hitter and the ball was supposed to come up quick. But the Lions were all over the guy and Wentz held the ball and started to improvise…
Really poor none the less because obviously you play to the whistle but you gotta believe that they went to the line and based on the play call expected the ball to be gone very quickly.
You run those plays in practice/walkthroughs and it’s like “Snap…bang bang…ball is gone” Unfortunately in practice the guy isn’t blanketed and the QB forced to scramble
The Lions really just need to clean up the penalties and tackle better on Defense. All the mistakes the Lions are currently making are all correctable and you have to assume they will get better as the weeks go on. These next 3 games are going to tell us what the Lions are all about. The KC game I don’t even give a shit about, we all know KC is a beast on offense. Win the division games against the Packers and Vikings we will be in good shape.
