Greetings! I wish that my first post was full of optimism. I have been following this board for a while but decided to finally chime in. I wish there was more good to say in regards to this " team".
I put it in quotes for a reason. Why? Because I’m not seeing this group of guys emulating anything as such. Every week I hear about how they try so hard but I also can hear the inflections within interviews with players and coaches that there is a disconnect that they just wont admit because nobody wants to be that guy.
We can though, no?
I’ve been a fan since the early 80s and I cant say I ever remembered such a disconnect… Even through 2008…Hell, I remember that team fighting through 4 quarters …they just didnt have the talent. I believe this team does have the talent. We can see it in small intervals but never consistently.
The taciturn nature of the Top men is nauseating. UGH! Is this just Patricia’s ridiculous coach speak masking the problem? I believe it is. He certainly doesnt want to hang himself and is taciturn for the right reason for self preservation. I dont like that approach and I feel there needs to be some kind of specific accountability made first in the Locker room and publicly as well. Obviously we dont know the inside conversation so maybe it does happen?
However, Patricia is not Bill Belicheck and his attempt at being tight lipped and guarded is flippin disgusting.
Does anyone feel this way? I want to stab myself in the face every Sunday…or um Thursday…its not healthy to be a Lions fan. I’m 44 but I think this gray in my hair and heart condition are completley the Lions fault for always teasing me and baiting me. But what’s the saying " fool me once? Shame on you…fool me since 1957… ? …FML. ok I’m done haha next time I hope to write something more thought out but this team just has my head spinning and I cant seem to focus on a specific thing because of the shit show it is.
Glad to be here!!!
I’m not sure what the whole point is to this post but I just wanted to get involved and put that out there.
