Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions: 4th quarter - Could this still be a game? Sorry, I spoke too soon...
How about a little urgency? Maybe a no-huddle offense? Run up to the line? Hell, no. The Lions come out like it's the 1st quarter. What the fuck? You're down 2 scores! (If they can convert a 2 point conversions, but I'm getting waaaaaay ahead of myself)
Kitna looks deep for Williams, he's grabbed...FLAG! Pass interference on the Pack. 1st down Lions.
Lions are in Green Bay territory. A pass to Furrey gets 7.
Kitna is back on 2nd and 3...he throws a pass behind Johnson...who bats the ball in the air, swoops it up...He's gone! WHAT A PLAY! Touchdown Lions! 38 yards, longest play of the season! That was all Megatron, people.
With the PAT, it's 24-16 Packers. Is this a game now? Could be...
Packers need another drive here, as the Lions, and the fans, seem to finally be in the game.
After a flag on the return, the Packers start at the 10.
1st down pass...incomplete! Fans are really getting into the game!
A qucik pass to Driver...gets nothing! 3rd and long! Is it possible the Lions D can get a must have 3 and out?
They do, as Rogers is pressured and taken down after a short gain.
Pack will punt. The Detroit fans are LOUD!
WHAT THE HELL? The snap goes right through Ross' hands! The ball bounces over the end line...Holy shit, it's a SAFETY!
Packers' lead is down to 24-18! Now it really is a game! I'm at a loss. I'm happy, but at a loss. I did not expect the Lions to make this a game.
Lions take over at their 45 after a short punt. WHOOOO!
It's Kitna to Williams...1st down at the Packer 39!
Rudi Johnson up the gut gets a couple...FUCK! FLAG!
It's holding on...Backus. 2nd of the game. 2nd at a really bad time of the game. You dumb SOB! Christ...
1st and 20. A short pass to Willaims gets a 6. Furrey is open on 2nd down...But Kitna throws it behind him. SHIT! Kitna has not been accurate today.
Kitna's back to throw...Looks for Johnson at the sticks...But Al Harris knocks it away. So much for that drive. Not one of Kitna's shining moments...
Harris' punt pins the Pack deep. They'll start at their 9. Lions need a stop. Need a stop, bad.
Huge push by the Lions' front, stuffs Grant for a 2 yard loss! Redding was all over him!
Rogers with a short pass over the middle, 3rd and 4. Lions need to get the D off the field...
Rogers rolls out...He heaves the ball DEEP...Jennings has a step...It's knocked down by the Lions! Bullocks with a big play! Shit, that was close...
Furrey takes the punt...Finds a seam...He's down at the Packers 47! YES!
Kitna's back to throw...Finds Johnson in the middle...He breaks a tackle...breaks another tackle...makes Harris whiff....HE"S GONE! TOUCHDOWN LIONS!
25-24 Detroit Lions! Son of a fucking bitch, what a comeback! Wow. Just wow. Calvin Johnson is a man amongst boys.
Hanson booms the kickoff, touchback. Damn, Hanson has big leg today.
Now it's the Packers imploding. False start! They are deep in their own end. 2nd and 13 from the 17.
SHIIIIIIIT! (that's the exact way it came out of my mouth) Jennings crosses the middle, hauls in the pass...He's off to the races! Out of bounds at the Lions 24. ARRRRRGH!
2nd and 8, Lenon drills Jones...incomplete! Wow, Lenon made a play? Never thought I'd see the day...
3rd and 8, Rogers is pressured....rolls right...Jackson is open at the 5...HE DROPS IT! Would have been a 1st down! Ooooo, the Lions dodged a bullet there!
The Pack has to settle for 3, but they do take the lead 27-25. Only 5:17 left in the 4th. Shit, we have a ballgame!
Lions will begin on the 20, touchback.
NONONONONONONONONONONO! YOU ASS!
Kitna throws an ugly ball, Woodson with the easy pick at the Lions' 40. It was badly under thrown. BADLY. Kitna and those fucking turnovers! He has not had a very good game. SHIT!
A run, and a couple of passes have the Packers at the Lions 20. It's 3rd and 1.
It's a handoff to Jackson...He's got a hole....YOU GOTTA BE KIDDIN' ME! Jackson's gone, un-fucking-touched, into the end zone.
3:31 left, and the Lions are down 2 scores, 34-25. After a wonderful comeback, the Lions just piss it all away. Between the defense's inability to tackle, and Kitna's propensity to fuck things up, the Lions didn't have a chance.
Lions take over at their 30. A Pass to Furrey gets 9. Kitna is back to throw again...PICK! Woodson is GONE. TD Packers. Help me, Jebus.
That was an AWFUL pass. Just fucking awful. Kitna, you fucking ASS! Where's your God now? (Sorry, I couldn't resist...)
41-25 Green Bay, 3:09 left. and this game is over.
Dave adds the following in the comments...
I'm guessing Charles Woodson believes in now - what a game-changer.
No kidding. Believe in now, my ass.
The Lions will be throwing every down, not that it makes a difference at this point.
Kitna's back to pass...Picked. Collins strolls into the end zone, untouched. Doesn't get easier than that, folks.
48-25 Packers. God dammit. God dammit to Hell.
Just bench his sorry ass now. Wait, they can't do it. Why?
BECAUSE THE LIONS DON'T HAVE A CAPABLE BACKUP. It's Kitna or bust. Bust it is...
Anon is damn unhappy in the comments...
shitna saw his td:int ratio and just had to make things right.
fuck ford, fuck the lions, fuck the nfl, fuck the slappies, fuck me, and fuck you.
I couldn't have said it better myself. Fuck us all.
What? Orlovsky is in the game? No fucking way? No, it's way. Orlovsky is under center, Kitna is on the bench. Where's your God now? (OK, you know me by now, I can't help it!)
Makes no difference, as Orlovsky goes 4 and out. 1:19 left. The Packers go into "Victory formation."
Dave adds a very good comments about the Lions' offense...
12 rushes...I thought Martz was the problem? When are the Leos gonna pound the rock?
It's more than Martz, obviously. The ineptitude is institutional at this point.
Lions lose in one of the most painful ways possible, 48-25. That's the game, and to be honest, the season. Maybe even Marinelli's head coaching career after this season. This was the sort of loss that could, and probably will, send this season into a death spiral. Not that it would be a bad thing, if it means the Fords fire everyone.
I'll say this...I do not want to hear any "moral victory" BULLSHIT! Because that's all it would be, BULLSHIT. Something Rod Marinelli is awful good at spreading....
I HATE THE LIONS.
I HATEHATEHATEHATEHATE THE LIONS.
