Early Vegas Line: Lions favored by 2

Now, I don't want to turn this into a "we get no respect" type thread, because I've really been worried about this Lions game for 6 weeks now... and while I would not be shocked at all if the Lions won at home, do you think the coaching staff may play this up at all this week? I mean we looked pretty bad yesterday, but we're still 4-3 and going to play a team thats 1-5, can't run the ball and is having a hard time stopping the run... is anyone else a little surprised by this?

I mean I think that Detroit is a MUCH improved team (and they did beat Washington last year)...but I'm still pretty surprised by that

Not surprised, The Lions are a tough team. This will be a tougher game than Chicago. The Redskins better play a lot better than yesterday or this will be a loss.

Re: Early Vegas Line: Lions favored by 2

Wah! We get no respect! We played like all stars yesterday and now this?!?!

Seriously though, I can see the reasoning. The Lions beat us last year, we're on the road, we just played an amazingly bad game in which the main reason we won was because Jay Cutler can't tell the difference between a Bears receiver and DeAngelo Hall, and the Lions have been close in the majority of their games this year. We could very easily lose this game.

With all that being said I hope Shanny takes a cue from Matt Mosley and has that '09 game tape on replay all week. That was truly embarressing. We need to be prepared to go and I know Shanny won't coddle the team after the way we played against the Bears, minus a few people who had great games.

Yeah I agree completely... I mean its not like I don't think the Lions can't beat the Skins, because I would not be suprised if they did. They're a solid team...I guess I'm just a little suprised they were favored and I'm wondering if the coaches will play up being the underdog, since I think we have been dogs in every game except STL.

I will be very surprised if this line doesn't change throughout the week. If I was a bookie I'd be setting my lines at WASHINGTON -2.5

Re: Early Vegas Line: Lions favored by 2

Skins win easy .. OK seriously I think we score 30 sunday and win by 2 scores. Torain will be a monster and the Lions D is very poor, No run D and their DBs are really weak. McNabb should have a huge game.

Our D will be motivated and will force Turnovers again. Stafford won't beat us twice in a row!

Re: Early Vegas Line: Lions favored by 2

Wait, this means Vegas likes the Skins. The home team always gets 3 points, anything under that tells me they actually like the Skins on this one, maybe in a runaway.

We better watch out, the Lions are better than they were last year. Plus they have confidence that they can win this game, because for some reason a lot of teams know that they can beat the redskins when the redskins think "_____, they're awful this year and haven't won any or that many games...we got this"

Yeah I hope that loss from last year is still fresh in the teams head. And watch out for Suh, cause that guy isn't playing like a rookie...

Re: Early Vegas Line: Lions favored by 2

For me I keep wondering how they scored all those points with Shaun Hill at QB.

Sure, you have Megatron at WR, but that's KINDA all they have.

Re: Early Vegas Line: Lions favored by 2

Yeah I think it is fair considering past history and how the lions are playing this year.

Should be a tough game. We have the tools to win, need to get it done.

Re: Early Vegas Line: Lions favored by 2

I thought Vegas odds automatically gives the home team 3 points? If this is true, then Redskins by one.

We havent shown anything to make me think we will win by two scores, wait if its 2 FG's i can see it. two td's no way.

Not surprised one bit. Lions are coming off a bye and it will be our second straight road game. Det. has played much better this year. Played the Giants tough and should've beat Chicago. This one will be close.
