Batch would have thrown 8.
2001-09-24 09:54:51 AM  
Detmer must have forgotten he was traded and kept throwing it to his old "teammates".
2001-09-24 09:55:38 AM  
Ahhhh, the Cinci-Bungles have someone to pick on now.

The Lions are pathetic. It's no wonder Barry Sanders said goodbye.

Barry and Speilman were the only things that Detroit had going for em. They're gonna suck for a long long time. It's a shame.

Lions are gonna suck? They have sucked for as long as i can remember...I don't get it. There must be a curse on the SilverDome. As a female trying to teach herself football the past year, the Lions are not the team to watch, unless you'd like to learn what NOT to do. As a Metro Detroiter, I feel nothing but shame!

BizB: The Cincitsnasti Bungholes beat the defending super bowl chumps...this is truly a sign of the apocolypse.

this damned team and the "organization" around it has been sticking to their fans for years on end. They have NEVER been able to develope a QB and never will. Damn William Clay Ford straight to the abyssmal blackness of hell for eternity.

Go Packers

Wasn't it actually 8? I think one was called back.

The lions win just enough to keep you watching. I bet they
still win 8 this season. Why the hell did they get rid of Hardbaugh??
2001-09-24 10:55:31 AM  
Mme.Mersault-At least your Giants have sniffed the Super Bowl and even won a couple. My damnable Lions have won 1, count them 1, playoff game I think since the Superbowl was dreamed up...and whilst your chucking Clay Ford into Hell why don't you toss Illitch and his "Tigers" in there too, cept for Jose Lima he can stay.
2001-09-24 11:03:07 AM  
Watch out. The Bengals are the team to watch. They will be a surprisingly dominating team this season.
2001-09-24 11:04:14 AM  
go dawgs!
2001-09-24 11:11:29 AM  
Hagbard: What, no Weave? No Sparks? C'mon ... we had our best pitching staff since 1987 this year ... damn offense fouled everything up.

On the plus side, Ford Field is gonna be damn cool ...
2001-09-24 11:26:41 AM  
I am shamed I live in Detroit. But this might turn out to be a good thing because we always start 6-2 and then blow it. If we start out losing the then come back and win most of our last 10 games, we could make it into the playoffs! On the other hand, I also see elves.
2001-09-24 11:43:09 AM  
Chach you are right, it's just I don't really care about them anymore, and I've got the Old English "D" tat on my leg, for the Tigers not M&M. You are correct Weaver and Lima are some of the best pitchers we've had...maybe Cornejo can stay...not Sparks though he looks like a doofus.
2001-09-24 11:50:12 AM  
I couldn't even throw 7 interceptions if I was trying to in Madden 2002 on my PS2.
2001-09-24 11:59:24 AM  
Detroit has a lot to Kid Rock. Ok, bad example.
2001-09-24 12:12:03 PM  
The lions usually beat the good teams, and then lose to everyone else thats horrible. This year, they decided to make it simplier and just lose to everyone.

I live in Michigan, but I'm technically closer to Green Bay...soo......GO PACK.
2001-09-24 12:33:25 PM  
Batch is a farking pussy. "Oh, ow! I fell down on my ass and I broke both my legs, and an arm!" is basically what happens with him every game. Hell, breathing on that weak mother farker too hard, would probably cause him to cry to the coach.

Batch is bringing the team down, more so. The Lions have sucked for a long time, but every season with Batch as QB gets worse. He is a pussy and doesn't deserve to be in the NFL.

Oh well, atleast the Rampage is good.
2001-09-24 12:39:56 PM  
The Lions need Andre Ware.
2001-09-24 01:31:13 PM  
Yay! My first submitted link! The Lions HAD Andre Ware at one point. The list of pathetic QBs since I was old enough to watch/understand football is a long one.

In no particular order:
Eric Hipple
Chuck Long
Stoney Case
Gus Frerotte
Andre Ware
Scott Mitchell
Charlie Batch
Ty Detmer
Rodney Peete

I know theres more, and Eric Hipple wasn't all that bad; but this is the NFL, and we haven't had an NFL-caliber QB since I was born (1976).
2001-09-24 01:37:31 PM  
Whiney, ass detroit fans...quite yer biatchin!

You had the Detroit Red Wings, Winners of multiple stanley cups, and you had the Pistons in the early 90's...

It could be worse, it can always be could live in Buffalo! (yikes)
2001-09-24 01:41:25 PM  
What the hell is it with sports? The Lions used to have Barry Sanders, an un-farking-believable RB, and they never once got a Super Bowl ring for him. Last year, the St. Louis Cardinals had a hitter who broke the HR record, and they didn't do squat in the playoffs. This year, Ripken has been doing good, here in Baltimore, by himself, but the rest of the team stinks to high heaven. I could go on and on about good, even great players, on suck-ass teams that drag them down. It's a shame sometimes.
2001-09-24 02:17:39 PM  
The Skins could use another sorry azz quarterback.
2001-09-24 03:32:32 PM  
Is this really the right situation for the Asinine tag?
2001-09-24 03:46:32 PM  
woo hoo we suck
go lions!
2001-09-24 03:52:20 PM  
Sethor: There is no I in team. And Big Mac broke the hr record 2 years ago. Last year McHomer sat on the bench most of the season hurt.
This year, BailBonds will likely break the record, and the Giants will prob not even make the playoffs.
Tis is life, and tis is sports.
2001-09-24 04:22:18 PM  
Phineas: How could you forget Erik Kramer? :-P
2001-09-24 04:45:31 PM  
Charlie : I've found myself saying there's no I in team for a while now too. Yet, I notice certain atheletes on teams earn $50 million and up. Hardly seems like things are a team sport with so much of a difference between one player and another.
2001-09-24 04:52:49 PM  
sethor: true, true. Borque got his (I'm from RI, I'm grudgingly coming around on that kicking ass, Boston just wasn't gonna get him there anytime before his retirement, sad to say
"I couldn't even throw 7 interceptions if I was trying to in Madden 2002 on my PS2."

Nkosika: yah, I know, huh? Not even on the All-Madden setting.
2001-09-24 05:17:32 PM  
I wonder if James Stewart misses those unbearable training camps here in Jax. And we had Andre Ware- even Detmer is better. My one question is at what point does the coach decide that maybe the backup should go in? After the fifth INT or so, he's gotta know it just isn't working...
2001-09-24 05:21:52 PM  
Erik Kramer! OHhhhhhh Yeah...

What an embarassment the Lions football franchise has been over the years.

EQAddict: yes, throwing 7 interceptions in an NFL game is asinine. It also could have been 'sad', but I flipped a coin. I suppose it might have been 'amusing' if you're a Browns fan, but not to us Michiganders.
2001-09-24 06:24:11 PM  
He shoulda threw two more on purpose. at least that way he would hold the record. Hell, If I am going a crappy job I at least want recognition for it.
2001-09-24 10:02:39 PM  
LOL I agree w/ Fuh Q =op Ty Detmer isn't all that bad though... You can't always point the finger at the quarterback because I guarentee you that at least 5 of them were'nt his fault... not saying he isnt a fark up cuz he does suck but you cant blame it ALL on him, becuase other than Johnny Morton and Jermaine Crowell, the Lions Offense is PITIFUL and I do mean pitiful... Oh well, so much for the "new attitude" in Detroit lol... Us Michiganders will have our sunshine sometime in the future... when charlie batch gets hit by a car... lol
2001-09-25 12:27:03 AM  
Hate to say it, but if Detmer was a racehorse, they'd have shot him afterward.
