Re: Leos vs Tabbies

For this game, my first wish is that Chris Rainey breaks a punt return for a huge gain or a touchdown. He deserves a big return. Its been tough going for Rainey this season through no fault of his own. I miss seeing Rainey in space, cutting, making defenders miss badly. I miss his speed and watchin...

Re: Lions vs. Ticats Sept. 22, 2017

What a waste of taxpayer's money to have a retractable roof and to keep it closed. The so professed Legend should be happy.

Re: Leos vs Tabbies

My keys: - establish the running game and stick with it - avoid turnovers - get Chris Williams involved in the offence - throw some high percentage passes early in the game so Jennings can regain his confidence - move the launch point. Don't keep Jennings in the pocket so the defence can tee off on ...

Re: Leos vs Tabbies

So the plan for Friday is to "execute". Am I reading the self professed legend correctly ?

Re: Stampeders 27 - Lions 13, Post-Stats and Comments

The best thing about the Lions being in the basement in the standings and possibly finishing there (both teams ahead of the Lions hold the tie breaker over them) is that likely it will mean moving on from some of the seemingly tenured coach staff. The only way that's going to happen is with new own...

I don't think Long is outkicking the coverage, rather I think the coverage stinks. That's on WB. Seems like half the unit is stashed DL
Agree, there were numerous times players were in position to make the tackle and didn't

Foucault to me seemed to lack good feet movement. Lacks mobility.

Jeremiah Johnson had only 2 carries in the second half. Lions keep beating themselves by stopping what works.

The league has apparently spoken to Awe in a conference call and Buono will sit down with him tomorrow when they return to practice.

Re: Als hire Ken Miller as offensive consultant

An outstanding football career does not automatically translate into an outstanding coach. Calvillo may be another in a long list of players that can't make the transition into coaching.

Re: Als hire Ken Miller as offensive consultant

Lions may have the talent but the coaches have no idea how to utilize their talents. I give you the case of Chris Williams as an example.

Re: Als hire Ken Miller as offensive consultant

I would be both surprised and shocked that Buono would bring in an offensive consultant. That would be tantamount to admitting something is wrong with the game plan.

Hope the new owners will nixed that idea. I've had enou...
