Panic in Detroit


This week we have everybody's favorite Detroit Lions. Poor Lions. They have no rivalry, they don't even have a lot of fans. But, they can still beat us. They have a 50/50 chance.

Back in the 90's, Favre and The Pack could never win in a dome. But they have done a little better now that's it's Ford Field, still a dome I know, but it doesn't have that nasty pillow roof like the Silverdome had. The Metrodome has it too, tell me why again the Vikings still play in that nasty stadium? No really, I love to hear that stuff.

So this will be a tough game for the Pack. I think their running game will have trouble, and the passing game seems to go up and down. Let's hope that our defense can rise to the challenge.

To get us ready for the game, here is really, really short clip of the great and only great Detroit Lion Barry Sanders. I took a trip in the way back machine to find it for you.

See ya Sunday!

AAAhh- Barry Sanders--next to 'Sweetness' Payton probably the best back I have ever seen. What always made Barry frustrating to watch was how he would let the defensive guys get their hand just on his jersey (never enough to close their hands and grab him mind you) until he decided to turn iton and run away from them....

Of course the perfect balance was the Packer/Lion playoff game when Reggie and Co held him to single-digit yards for the game....

Ah, the good ol' days.....
