Yep 2 yards short, that doesn't change the outcome of those games to wins. Get over it, we're 6-4

But good enough for 8-2 discussion. People are acting like we are 2-8

Yeah Quinn has done some good things but he whiffed on this one. Philly got him for virtually nothing. If nothing else it may have motivated Abdullah.

Btw let's just put this Wild Card tiebreaker stuff to bed. I don't want the playoffs if it's not from a division title slot. Suffering through a 17-week season just to see another road playoff game one and done holds no appeal for me.

Then there's a case for 10-0. They were within a score within 5 minutes in all 4 losses.

I think he whiffed worse on not trading for Marcel Dareus

Very true too. Come backs against Saints and Panthers with some major injuries for Detroit on those days including Stafford against the Saints leading to 3 picks.

Can't wait to play the Saints in the playoffs

I donít think that with a few breaks our way, that the Lions could have won every game since the year 2000.

The team was trash in 2001-2009

Stafford hurt in 2010 with rising young team

2011 and beyond have been good for most part.

Updated after yesterday's games

11-5 still probably gives the Lions a good shot at a wild card spot, but they certainly made it much harder on themselves going forward. Losing even one game might cost them a chance at the playoffs.
