Turner starts the 4th with a nice run, shrugging off Detroit tacklers like a dog shaking off so many fleas. He's down at the Lion 40. Why? Why do I do this to myself every damn season?
Ryan scrambles right, finds the TE open, gets 12 more. I'm quite unhappy right now.
I'm getting furious, as Turner has an easy time getting ANOTHER 1st down inside the Lions' 10.
ARRRRRGH! Turner walks in from the 7. FUCK! Wait, there's a flag? Yes, holding on the Falcons, it's coming back. 1st and goal from Detroit's 13. Hell, it's just delaying the inevitable.
Lions just miss a pick on 2nd down. Figures. It's the way this whole game has gone.
3rd and goal from the 14. It's an end around...Lions bring him down at the 8, after actually making a God damn tackle!
But the chip shot FG makes it a 13 point game, 34-21 Atlanta.
This is just wrong. The Falcons suck. Which allows me to make the conclusion the Lions SUCK EVEN MORE! It's just common sense, right?
The Detroit not so special teams will start at the 20. as Marcus Thomas runs into the pile. GOD DAMMIT! FIRE KWAN! NOW! GIVE HIM THE BUS TICKET OUT OF TOWN! It's all about Marinelli being accountable, correct? But not when it comers to the coaching staff, as Kwan never should have come back after the disaster that was last season's special teams. What a fucking joke.
Kitna's back, play action...It fools no one, SACK.
2nd and 17. Johnson gets 11. 3rd and 6. Kitna to McDonald gets the 1st, but the clock continues to move. Lions huddle up. WHERE'S THE FUCKING URGENCY?!
Kitna to Johnson gets 10, and then take their good old time calling the play. It's not as if this is a one score game!
Shit, the play action blows up, as Smith's arm knocks the ball out of Kitna's hands. They barely get the ball back. If I weren't a fan, I'd be in hysterics.
Of course, on 3rd and long, Kitna takes ANOTHER SACK. Fuck the Lions. Fuck the Lions long and hard.
If other fans are in the same mood as me, and I'm sure they are, we'll see the end of the Lions' Ford Field sellout streak next week, for good reason.
Falcons take over at their 28. They are going to run lots of clock. Just keep giving the rock to Turner and Norwood, has they have almost 250 yards combined. Turner is at 196.
He's over 200, as he breaks another run for 10+ yards. He has a new Falcons record. Fucking wonderful. Just fucking wonderful. I'm ready to KILL.
Typical Lions, making a journeyman look like an All-Pro. I've seen it countless times over my Hellish lifetime of fruitless fandom.
I have to smile, as a commenter has already given up on the season.
damnit........... looks like we lost a game we should have won. gonna be a long season, but at least millen will probably get another shot at a very high draft pick. dont fuck it up millen.
Sound like a plan to me, anonymous. Actually, I think that's what the Fords say before every season. "Don't fuck it up, Millen."
Unfortunately, once again, for the umpteenth time, HE ALREADY HAS!
The Falcons are grinding out the clock, and the Lions can't do a damn thing to stop them.
It's the 2 minute warning, and I don't give a shit.
The Falcons are grinding it out, as they are at the Detroit 14. Ah, Atlanta is taking mercy on the Lions, as Ryan is taking a knee.
What a farce. What a fucking joke. What a sorry excuse for a franchise. If I were in Ford's shoes, I'd fire everyone, from Millen on down to the damn waterboy, as soon as the game ended. It was that fucking bad. An embarrassment. A utter, fucking embarrassment.
I hate being so negative, but I can't help it. Do you see any way this team can compete if they can't even beat the FALCONS? THE LOUSY, REBUILDING, 4-12, FALCONS?
Game over. Thank fucking God. 34-21, Falcons. I need a shower to wash the stench of this game off of me.
I hope to GOD this Lions team gets skewered by the MSM, the web, the blogs, the fans, EVERYONE! Monday will be UGLY in Detroit.
