Game Day, Part Deux, Deetroit Leaning

Home opener. Detroit Lions. Hopefully a non-eventful win. Then again you have to look at Detroit’s home opener last week for a game that got away. And if this was the previous regime, this is a game that the team would usually fall well short of expectations. Are we that team anymore?

I’d like to be sure we aren’t but that’s why the play the game, as they so oftenly say.  We are getting dinged up pretty decently so far what with Goodwin out, 2 guards out, Coyle out, and Jimmy G coming off a shit game. It’ll at least be interesting to see how he reacts to his less-than-stellar performance last week and if he gets a little less dangerous with his passes.

Any given Sunday and all that, but it looks like Patricia is already in over-his-head mode. All I know is Deetroit really pushed to upgrade their running attack, and the Jets, 24th in the league vs the run, shut them down completely.

    Josh came into the Sat. morning team meeting late, messed up, and angry at himself for letting his teammates down.

  2. unca_chuck says:

    Ahhh. Dude can catch. Pot is legal in Cali . . .

    Sign him!

    Winder, War is one of my all time favorite bands. Never saw ’em though. Tower of Power as well, though I did see them.

  3. Lurker John says:

    Doctor Detroit. I haven’t seen that in years.

  4. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, the first LP i ever bought was Quadrophenia. The 2nd was Ohio Players Fire. I was a huge funk fan back in the day.

    • Lurker John says:

      I bought Fire on CD a couple of years ago. The title track was the coolest thing I’d ever heard when I was a kid. I think I was in junior high when it hit the charts and I heard it at a school dance. I was like, “Who is THAT?!” Great band, phenomenal funk tune. Played their own instruments and everything.

    Game day! If the hotel and the town is any indication it should be a good crowd.
    Looking forward to big ass W.

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Good luck out there, 12th. Bring home the win!!!

  7. unca_chuck says:

    Back when ESPN was funny.

  8. Irish Kevin says:

    Ahh…music, just to show how old I am. Back in the day DJ were responsible for what they would play. There was a radio station in Santa Rosa only had a license for sin up till sun down. But this guy, he played everything, blues, country, folk, rock. I am so thankful for that guy, I in today’s world I would not know half the music I listened to. Gotta say blues is at the top for me. Jazz is probably at the bottom.

  9. Lurker John says:

    Yeah, 12th, no excuses, bring it home, baby! lulz

  10. Lurker John says:

    Pat Mahomes looking like the real deal so far in KC.

  11. rtfirefly says:

    The Bills early favorites for #1 overall pick.

  12. Lurker John says:

    The Steelers are looking like a Pop Warner team so far, getting booed off the field in the first quarter.

  13. unca_chuck says:

    The fucking refs in Green Bay are out of control.

  14. unca_chuck says:

    Saw the Pretenders on their first US tour. They were incredible. That first album is nonstop awesome.

  15. Lurker John says:

    Josh Gordon is linking himself with the 49ers, saying he wants to go to them or the Cowgirls.

  16. unca_chuck says:

    KFAT was like that back in the day. All kinds of weirdness. There used to be so many good stations before they all went the way of Clear Channel and Cirrus.

    KSJO, KOME, KSAN, KFOG, KMEL, KPFA, KFAT. Don’t touch that dial, or you’ll get KOME on your fingers.

    • Lurker John says:

      All time great radio call sign, from my hometown rock station. Those stickers were everywhere back then.

  17. rtfirefly says:

    Dafuq’s up with Ryan Fitzpatrick in Tampa. 14/19 271 3 tds 1 int in the FIRST HALF against the SB Champs.

  18. rtfirefly says:

    We used to own this record. “The sound of the city, the sounds that I heard, on K-S-F-O.” The Sound of The City, at 3:11 on the record, is really cool.

    • alleykat69 says:

      Good stuff rtfirefly!
      That’s was right up my parents alley lol!!
      Digging the saw blade where the songs are listed, “it’s a cut above the ordinary!”

      • rtfirefly says:

        I grew up listening religiously to KSFO because they had the Giants. That was in the Russ Hodges/Lon Simmons days (Bye Bye Baby). I loved that record as a little kid

        I found this while looking up Russ. This was before my time, but man it’s cool.

      • rtfirefly says:

        Try again.

  19. 12th Man says:

    Montana in da house!

  20. alleykat69 says:

    Good omen, having Joe Cool 😎 in the House.

  21. 12th Man says:

    Colbert warming up in full uniform

  22. 12th Man says:

    Person in full uniform too

  23. alleykat69 says:

    Pat Mahomes just keep chucking TD passes ,9 TD (5 today)in 2 games to start the year? Crazy 😜
    Man I wished he was on my fantasy team and I have Ryan&Cousins I drafted late ..

  24. alleykat69 says:

    Good to have Person in uni,along with Colbert 12th..

  25. Winder says:

    Don’t feel to bad kat. I sat Mahomes on a bunch of teams to play Jimmy G.

  26. rtfirefly says:

    #6 for Mahomes today lol

  27. Lurker John says:

    Fucking Rodgers. The dude is a stud.

  28. Lurker John says:

    Good news that Person is playing. The OL doesn’t have the depth to survive too many injuries. Garnett, The Warrior, OTOH, is would with an owie on his toe.

  29. unca_chuck says:

    Here we go . . . . . . … . . . . . . . . . . Time to bury these guys.

  30. Lurker John says:

    NFL officiating at this point in time is unbelievably bad. The league is clueless with these rules changes. Nobody throws down their hard-earned cash to watch fucking officials throw yellow flags. It’s completely out of control.

  31. unca_chuck says:

    LOL, no Malcolm Smith.

  32. unca_chuck says:

    Jesus. If they had called that I woulda lost it. Tackling is disallowed in today’s NFL.

  33. unca_chuck says:

    Pathetic. Red zone blues yet again.

  34. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. That is awful. No clue in the red zone. Jimmy G should have avoided both those sacks.

  35. Irish Kevin says:

    Yep, can’t run, can’t get a wide out open. They might have to have Jimmy rollout to slow that rush

  36. Lurker John says:

    JG hanging on to the ball like a rookie on both of those sacks.

  37. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, Garoppolo had enough time to evoid both those asacks.

  38. unca_chuck says:

    3rd string LB play there.

  39. unca_chuck says:

    Lee getting schj9ooled.

  40. Lurker John says:

    Another huge missed tackle from Saleh’s defense.

  41. Winder says:

    God I hate it when we make mistakes

  42. Lurker John says:

    That’s a TD. Pitch and catch.

  43. unca_chuck says:

    Here we go. Lack of LBs are killing us so far.

  44. unca_chuck says:

    Fuck this. We are going to make a shit load of mistakes apparently,.

  45. unca_chuck says:

    Aaaaaaand there you go. The curse of the 20 yard line.

  46. unca_chuck says:

    Kicking from the 50 we should onsides it.

  47. Irish Kevin says:

    TD, about time!!!

  48. Lurker John says:

    JG’s complete inability to move around really hampers the offense when there’s no one open. Even Hoyer could move better than this guy. Harold has to love getting that sack.

  49. unca_chuck says:

    He’s holding the ball too long. That is the problem.

  50. Irish Kevin says:

    Good challenge

  51. Irish Kevin says:

    That was a terrible series

  52. Lurker John says:

    The NFL is coming dangerously close to being unwatchable right now. Just a non-stop penalty fest.

  53. Lurker John says:

    Ahkello Witherspoon is being abused today.

  54. rtfirefly says:

    Mahomes is gonna carve up this D like Thanksgiving turkey next week. Well, maybe not, Reuben will be back. But Jimmy G. better be ready. Of course, we still need to start showing something today first.

  55. Flavor says:

    I’d like to see Jimmy G do something other than stand in the pocket like a statue in the second half. Try sliding one way. It’s like he has almost no feel for where or when the pressure is coming.

  56. Lurker John says:

    You have to be kidding me.

  57. rtfirefly says:


  58. alleykat69 says:

    Jusy just steamrolled Slay into submission!!

  59. Maggie Horowitz says:

    Goddam Kittle drops a lot of passes

  60. Lurker John says:

    fucking kittle. hold the fucking ball

  61. unca_chuck says:

    No goddamn pass rush.

  62. unca_chuck says:

    These drops are killer, as are these missed tackles.

  63. unca_chuck says:

    We miss Foster terribly.

  64. Lurker John says:

    Witherspoon smokes a lot of pole and Saleh’s fucking defense can’t tackle.

  65. unca_chuck says:

    I do like that Celek play, though. TD here and out this game out of reach.

  66. unca_chuck says:

    Flat beautiful run there!!!! Damn!!!

  67. alleykat69 says:

    Awesome run Brieda!!
    67 yards to paydirt!!

  68. Maggie Horowitz says:

    Nice run Breida! Man, Detroit sucks!

  69. unca_chuck says:

    Brieda is on fire!

  70. Lurker John says:

    Breida breaks out!

  71. Lurker John says:

    The line blocked well on those last two plays, and Garcon was great on the TD as well.

  72. Lurker John says:

    You don’t see LeGarrette Blount get knocked on his like that very often. Defo just manhandled his ass.

  73. Lurker John says:

    Should’ve had a TD on that drive.

  74. Maggie Horowitz says:

    Blount is a fucking pussy

  75. Lurker John says:

    Thom Brenneman, dipshit at large.

  76. Winder says:

    fuck unbelievable

  77. Lurker John says:

    Brenneman is a fucking moron.

  78. Lurker John says:

    Saleh’s defense is shaky as hell at times, especially in the secondary. Witherspoon is getting beat like a drum all day long.

  79. Lurker John says:

    I didn’t see the facemask on Marsh. 8 more penalties, and “it’s a new ballgame” according to Thom “I am not a dumbfuck” Brenneman.

  80. Lurker John says:

    JG seems incapable of throwing the ball away when he needs to.

  81. unca_chuck says:

    This lack of pass rush is killing us.

  82. unca_chuck says:

    All day. We are lucky Stafford’s missed 4 deep balls.

  83. Lurker John says:

    Witherspoon is also killing us.

  84. Lurker John says:

    Another bust CB

  85. Maggie Horowitz says:

    Our defense sucks donkey dick. Foster will help, if he doesn’t get hurt, but not enough.

  86. Lurker John says:

    Coach Brenneman is creaming himself after that one.

  87. unca_chuck says:

    Well, all we need is 2 first downs.

  88. unca_chuck says:

    Foster will hep in a lot of areas.

  89. Winder says:

    Dodged a bullet.

  90. unca_chuck says:

    Garoppolo you idiot.

  91. Lurker John says:

    JG let off the hook for that moronic pass.

  92. Winder says:

    our defense does suck can’t win fucking games playing like that
