Horses Did Neigh, and Dying Men Did Groan, and Ghosts Did Shriek and Squeal About the Streets



Fuck this.

When it's always something, that's everything.

The end.

Not to put too fine a point on it Neil.

Time to start seeing what the youngsters can do. Start Reiff, Young/Broyles, Hill, TGWY, and the Hammer. I also think Linehan is done in the D. Cut Logan, and sign the FB Bryant. IMHO.

damn never could've imagine I'd have more hope this point in the season as a Redskins fan than you guys. but look at the bright side - this is all setting up another amazing bears playoff collapse.

Raven Mack said...

also lol at pundits who are like "the bears are the best in the nfl!"

Marc said...

The Lions offense is seein' nothin' different than what they saw last season....I still say execution/passion/focus is more the culprit than anything else....

Of course blame is due to the coachin' staff as well....but the coaches do not drop passes, sail or float passes, miss assignments or fumble at the goal line or in the redzone or give up huge ST plays....

The defense is not goin' to last this way all season....can't keep holdin' up the entire team week after week....

What do we do now, Neil? TELL ME. I feel like Halle Berry in Monsters Ball only I'm not about to back into Billy Bob. Yet.

I have no fucking idea and that's the worst thing about all of this. I just don't know where to go as a fan right now. This isn't hell. Instead, I feel like I'm just floating through space and I have no idea if I'll float forever or if I'll be hit by a comet or eventually saved or anything really. And maybe that actually is hell. I don't know. I just don't know.

This isn't hell, that was in 08. This is more like a traditional kick in the balls. Time to find out if Swartz has some Fontes in him and pull a .500 out of this turd

Yeah, but even 0-16 had a sense of finality to it - we knew that everything would be scrubbed out of existence and we could begin anew. But this... this just lingers like a stale fart and who even knows when - or if - it will be turned around.

In a strange way, I guess, 0-16 actually gave me a sense of hope because it was so awful that we had no choice but to move forward, whereas now people will stubbornly cling to what they desperately delude themselves into thinking they can salvage and the result is just rampant mediocrity. At least hell has a finality to it. This is more like relentless purgatory, the same place we have spent decades (you can say it's different and I have said that myself but goddammit I have lived through times that feel an awful lot like these, strange and terrible, and I know how this shit goes), and it sucks and I hate it.

I think that in some ways this season isn't too different to last season. Last season the Lions had good luck. This season they've got shit luck.

The Lions were better than the Bears at everything except turnovers in that game. Admittedly turnovers are fairly important.

Neil said...

The Bears were also better at not being stupid assholes who fucked up the same goddamn shit they fuck up every fucking week and aaaaaarrrfrrggggggghh

Sigh.

Okay, yeah, the Lions were a rickety team for much of last year too but those rickety bumps and oops what the fuck was that bruises felt like growing pains. It has become all too clear, at least to me, that they were not growing pains and are endemic. What do you do to fix that? The fuck if I know which is why I suggest spending Sundays drinking and, fuck, ice fishing or autoeroticism I don't fucking know and another thing... *disappears into the vacuum of space*

It fits the general mood that that last comment looks like a ransom letter or something a maniac would send in letters cut out from newspapers and magazines.

LIONS FEVER CATCH IT!!!

Are we all not maniacs that the Lions hold hostage ?

Neil said...

Pretty much.
