So I’ve been getting amped on this game and high on the Lions. And I’ve come into the must-win vibe with this game. Guilty. Which scares me at the place where I’ve been perpetually brought back to earth as a Lions fan. Just when you thought they were trending upward.
If the Lions don’t win, then what? -is what I’ve thought. Well, thinking about the year in quarters, we’ve won the first quarter, and played some tough teams. Most didn’t expect that. IF we lost this game, it’s STILL very possible, even likely, that we win the second quarter of the season. = We’d still be in a good place. We get the Packers once again and there’s still 4 other NFC N games ahead of us.
That said, we’ve run the gauntlet these first four games and this team should be mentally prepared for this game. In that respect, its really nice to be a fan of a tough NFL team. I’m not young, but that’s new for me as a Lions fan.
And one last p.s. - its nice to talk Lions with familiar faces again. I don’t get a lot of free time, but when I do, I spend time unravelling with the Lions. Good conversation here.
