My parents had a catchphrase: “For The Love of Lions.” Simply meaning, I can’t believe you did that again. One of my life lessons.
The Lions are now 1-3 for the season in the NFL. Is it too early to say, “buy or sell?” A total of 93 points in a game made it enjoyable back and forth between the Seahawks and the Lions. It was a nice shootout for a Sunday game even with a loss- again.
The Seahawks’ Geno Smith had over 300 yards passing. Goff’s stats are eye-popping on paper, with 26 of 39 for 378 yards and four touchdowns. Even Matthew Stafford would be proud. And no Andre Swift in the lineup. The Lions made the Seahawks’ offense look good. Maybe we should have done something different with the coin toss.
The plus side is the Lions never gave up and clawed their way back in the game to finish like all my golf putts this season. Every putt I had with maybe two exceptions was almost in. It sounds funny, but does anyone remember Wayne Fontes? From 88 – 96, he got us almost 70 wins. Big Buck, the media used to call him, because of job security. Fontes did lead the Lions to the NFC championship. Talk about memories, and we still complained back then about the Lions.
The question to ask is are we doomed as fans to sub-par seasons, or do we keep hope alive? My opinion is to not sell yet and wait and see how we bounce back next week on the road. Oh my God, we are playing the Patriots on the road! It’s a good feeling to know week No. 6 we cannot lose. Week No. 6 is a bye week. In conclusion, thick or thin, I’m not selling on our team. Sometimes the underdogs can shock the world. Good Luck Team.
Still have time to subscribe to the WRIF’s new podcast, “The Squad with Anne Erickson,” for discussion about the current Lions season!
