I really get tired of this take. Teams win or lose each week, it's that simple. There's no style points given for blowouts, and none taken away for close wins. You are what your record says you are.

I agree and im tired of hearing how we have been given 4 games this year. We won and the other team didn't. Outside of the Rams Loss u could say we should've won against the Colts and Texans as well. If other teams are that good they shouldn't be giving us games. U win or u lose plain and simple.

^I with you Matty. I think its hilarious no one wants to give our defense or Haslett credit. Our D is making the others teams Offense look like sh*t. Our offense is a work in progress, no doubt, and dont just point to the defensive stats of yards allowed, its misleading. The talent of this football team lies on the defense...for the last ten years it has.

You don't have to apologize for winning games in this league.

Re: Early Vegas Line: Lions favored by 2

For years it seemed we were always counting up the near wins; 'if only we'd hit that FG, if only that bad call was challenged,' etc. This was the story w/Zorn & Gibbs II, and Spurrier to some degree. Even Norvelle said that if he'd had a good kicker he'd have won a lot more games in DC (he didn't mention cutting Akers).

Now that we're winning some close games & winning when some aspects of the team perform poorly, we should be happy. We're in this thing, even though this team has pretty noticeable deficiencies. I chalk it up to good coaching.

I was listening to Coughlin last night & thinking about the success he's had in NY. Shanny is on a parallel track, a disciplinarian, long-time afc coach that's re-established himself in the nfc east.

Re: Early Vegas Line: Lions favored by 2

Don't care who is favored....but McNabb better button his chin strap cause the Detroit D-line is for real. Our offensive line has a long day in fornt of them.
You ever notice how McNabb has a routine or superstition about waiting until the last possible moment after the huddle breaks to button his helmet? I sometimes worry he is going to forget. Drives me nuts. Plus, I would rather him concentrate on reading the defense then looking to button his helmet. I am weird.

I have no real expectations for this game however, I love it when the Skins are the underdogs because they play better. Just give me an entertaining game for a change.

Strange but I always think that he is going to forget to snap the chin strap in place also.

I agree, style points are for college games not the pros. Win by 1 or 100 it doesnt matter, its a win.

Re: Early Vegas Line: Lions favored by 2

A lot of QBs don't buckle their chin strip until they step up to the line, or put in a mouth piece if they use one. It's easier to communicate the play in the huddle without those things.

Kinda odd that some fans stress about that.

Re: Early Vegas Line: Lions favored by 2

It is hard to predict the wins and the losses this year for the Skins, but after 7 Weeks, some things are getting clearer. At 4-3 I have been trying to figure out how the Skins can get to 10-6, which I think is good enough to get into the playoffs. Is that good enough to win the division? I don't know, but being 4-1 in the conference helps with tiebreakers. With that said, the Skins have 9 games to go. I think they can beat the Lions, Vikings, Bucs and Cowboys and Jags, on paper if they play the way they are suppose to. I think they lose their rematch to the Eagles, both Giants games and the Titans game on the road. That would put them at 9-7. Somewhere in there if they can get another win, especially against the Eagles or one of the Giants game they would get to 4-2 in the division and 10-6 over all and winning the division outright could be a real possibility.

Re: Early Vegas Line: Lions favored by 2

I have no idea who will win this game. If Stafford is playing, you have to give the edge to the Lions. Between Stafford, Best and Megatron... that's a loaded offense. I think McNabb has played so poorly... he's due for a breakout game. This could definitely be it. So yeah, I have no idea who's going to win.

Re: Early Vegas Line: Lions favored by 2

I actually feel better with Stafford in there vs. Shaun Hill. Stafford is bound to be rusty coming back from injury. Hill is also more mobile and was a scrambling threat.

Re: Early Vegas Line: Lions favored by 2

Not surprising. After not having beat the Redskins in a long time, last years win up there has probably given them a little confidence that they can beat this team.

It may not be wise to wait around for this team to self distruct. The Lions, even though they haven't won much lately, have traditionally played well at home. This game will present the perfect opportunity for us to put together a solid performance and a convincing win.
