Lions need an early lead in this one. They can't come back against the Bears D this year which is playing really well and is very healthy and scoring a ton of points too with pick 6s. Last year they got us on a special teams and 2 picks 6s in Chicago. Lions defense actually did well shutting down Forte and Cutler went only 9/19 and the only TD came on a short field after the Calvin fumble. Similar type loss to the Titans giving up 21 points of unneeded junk but the Bears are good at forcing unneeded junk, it's Bear ball for years since they had no offense..
Lions Dline needs to show up again like against Eagles, which is possible and they need to pick off Cutler twice. Cutler didn't throw a pick against the Lions last year. Maybe not in 2010 either. Scheffler was the guy who stepped up last week with 3 big catches for 81 yards along with efficient running. Both games we ran efficiently the Lions won scoring 27 and 26. We won't run on the Bears so it's up to Pettigrew, Scheffler, Burleson and Young. And Tillman against Calvin worries me too actually. Tillman has his number sometimes.
I'm really disappointed in the play of Suh and Stafford. Suh has become a rather average player IMO and isn't scaring anybody any longer. I think that is why Fairley is starting, they are desperate for somebody to provide a pass rush. Stafford seems lost out there, the offense seems disjointed.
I'm really hoping that the Chicago game will see the team revive its enthusiasm and move on to bigger and better things. A win here could turn the whole season around and back on track to be something special. A loss and we can start planning for next season.
Suh has been fine rushing the passer, he just can't stop the run to save his life. In limited snaps, Fairley has been pretty good against the run. I hate to say it, but until he improves his run defense Suh should not be starting. Fairley needs more snaps to see if he's the real deal or if this is just a small sample size.
What happened to all the heart and passion this team used to play with. I can't root for this team. At least when they sucked in years past, they tried their best. It was just obvious they didn't have the talent to match their opponents. I'm not mad about a loss, but how the team loses. This team cant even play a full 4 qtr game of football this season so far.
The D played very very well this game. The only guy that didn't play amazing was Jonte Green. Even the kickoff and punt coverage teams did well. The really infuriating part of this loss is that it was really right in hand two fumbles in the red zone one on the one ******* YARD LINE! When the Lions sucked before I could sit there and say its ok they are getting better I can tell they are improving every week but now they took a massive step back. Now we are back to talking about the draft in mid season.

Such a frustrasting loss. They moved the ball some(4 drives) other times were completely inept.
2011 MNF vs 2012 MNF. Bears held to 13 in both games
Calvin caught the big deep ball in 2011 but dropped his chance in 2012 on the first drive. Tillman owns Calvin otherwise. I am glad Tillman is older
Jahvid Best. LeShoure had some big holes and if that was Best, he could take it to the house
Finishing drives. Lions had 2 redzone trips and had 10 points in 2011, 2012 4 redzone trips and only 7 points really late.
And that Logan fumble is a killer because if it was only 10 points down they kick the FG instead of the Stafford 4th down interception and have a better chance to tie with more time.
