Get Stafford on the ground keep him running all day long. Unleash Turner and Jaquizz, Snelling, hit Roddy White with the deep ball. Look to go in with a big lead. Hope your defense can play on a high level and keep the lead. GO FALCONS!!

Bring the heat…..good things happened when we rushed more than 4 against the Panthers..we may get burned but that is a low percentage play anyway. Show different schemes and formations confuse Stafford and put pressure on him. We dont have to get a sack all we need do is make him throw it when he doesnt want to. On offense, run power with double tight end sets. Use the bootleg and throw short to Quizz. GET AHEAD EARLY.

Quizz looks great once or twice a game, then is not used again. Fix this, Mularkey!

Too bad you two guys aren’t the OC, you would probably call a better game for half the money. Just be aggressive on defense like yawl said and make Stafford throw it early and often.

Grimes and DeCoud should get some opportunities to pick the ball and run it back. Don’t just sit back on our heels in a prevent zone – that’s all!

Van Gorder needs to play more man coverage, which suits Duntae Robinson more. Also, Dominique Franks needs to see the field more instead of Chris Owens. This guy is wasting away on the bench. He must not know how to play Van Gorder’s “soft as cotton” zone defense. Coming from Oklahoma, he is probably too aggressive for this weak system. In any event, Hayden, Grimes, Robinson, and Franks has the potential to be a is a nice CB corps. Also, use Spoon and Nicholas more as blitzers on 3rd and longs. Lofton needs to be on the sideline then. And for god’s sake no more than man rushes. Mike Smith should forbid it.

We do not need to play man coverage against Calvin Johnson with Grimes or Robinson. We always need safety help. The Lions aquired Ronnie Brown from the Eagles if he plays, play cover 2, if he doesn’t play man on everyone except Megatron and send the blitzers. Stafford is more of a pocket passer and not as elusive as Cam so you might come out ok just rushing four.

Congratulations you are correct……I knew it but been a busy day for me today..mind was slipping…anyway did I say Upset in the Lions house this weekend?………..Atlanta over Detroit as 49ers accomplished ! Just cant see Mr. Cinderella up there living up the Highlife as The Pac owns that division already. Atlanta is just too good to keep losing games every other week.
Good night ! Cheers !

The Lions will be cute, cuddly, purring little kittens when we get through with them. They’ll be licking our hands and rubbing their necks against our thigh pads.

We’re not coming to Detroit to play!

Great comments!
More man coverage. If you run zone, please run tight zone coverage not that cuddly, marshmallowy, pillowy soft zone coverage VanGord runs. And please, please keep Matty upright and continue to set up the pass with the run (I.E. Real Football!!!)

Have Mark Richt on the sideline coaching the Lions. That will INSTANTLY turn Matthew Stafford into a waste of talent!
