So, here I am.
Sitting at my computer. Slightly pounding the sides of my head with my fists because my favorite football team has backed me into a corner.
The Detroit Lions took home a big win last Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. According to CBSSports.com, “Detroit dominated from start to finish, building a three-score lead before halftime and coasting after the break. Leshoure finished with 70 yards rushing and scored on runs of 7, 1 and 8 yards, becoming the first in franchise history to run for three touchdowns in the first half. Starting receiver Calvin Johnson, who got off to slow starts in Detroit’s past three games, had five receptions for 99 yards before the Jaguars (1-7) even recorded a first down. He finished with seven catches for 129 yards after getting a pain-killing shot in his left knee. Starting QB Matthew Stafford completed 22 of 33 passes for 285 yards, building on last week’s impressive outing against Seattle. He became the second-fastest quarterback to throw for 10,000 career yards in NFL history, reaching the milestone in 37 games. In other words, Detroit had an all around good game last Sunday.
BUT. There is always a ‘but’… Here are some things that people are saying about the Jaguars so far this season:
“2012 has been a nightmare beyond what anyone could have foreseen for the Jacksonville Jaguars” – Nate Dunlevy, Bleacher Report
“… But the Jacksonville Jaguars — as poorly as they have played this season….”- Chip Patterson, CBSSports.com.
“Eight weeks into the 2012 season, and things aren’t looking good for the Jacksonville Jaguars.”- Stephen Schindler, Bleacher Report
So… this is what has me all confused on what to think about the win last Sunday. I mean the Lions should have won that game, And, well, they did. Not a big shocker. I mean the Lions/Jaguars game is like me playing a one-on-one basketball match with LeBron James. For your information I have zero basketball skills. I can barely dribble the ball while standing in place. So, again, the game on Sunday was expected – so I’m really not all that excited about the win and the team’s performance. I mean… ick. I really don’t kknnooowwwwww! This article is just making me write in circles because the Detroit Lions are driving me insane!
I suppose a win is a win. Especially after the crap they’ve been pulling off the previous weeks. We will take this win. So I don’t know what to think. I just hope that they can keep up the momentum when they kickoff against the Minnesota Vikings next Sunday afternoon. After losing last week’s game, the Vikings are looking to make-up for their loss. Plus the Lions are going into purple territory.
