Here is what the Pollyannas would be saying after a Lions loss…
We lost our best defensive player for most of the 2nd half!
We were playing a Super Bowl contender!
We played in one of the most hostile environments in the league! Those guys boo Santa Claus!
We just had some bad luck plays. Clean those up and we would have won!
And guess what? Those all would have been SOL fan excuses for a loss.
But also guess what? In the real world, the Lions won and are undefeated, heading into what will probably be the biggest game in the NFL next week.
So maybe all the Debbie Downer’s can put a pause on their numerous “red flags” and enjoy the W. How 'bout it?
