In honor of the Detroit Lions FINALLY snapping their epic 644 day losing streak (thanks Mitch for calculating that), here’s the NFL Network’s highlight reel. The game featured a goal line stand, a Matthew Stafford run and while it wasn’t always pretty, it’s nice to have something in the “W” column.
In blue cats, orange cats, Detroit cats, oh my on Roar of the Tigers, Samara asks:
Wouldn’t it be nice if the Tigers learned a little something from the Lions? Not the Lions of every other game of the recent past, but the Lions of this past Sunday. Our newly spikified blue cats stood up and roared after literally years of pathetic meeping noises. They looked alert and determined. Young players like Stafford performed more or less up to expectation; old players like Hanson delivered precisely what it was their job to deliver; none of the big guys had limbs collapse under them. If the Tigers could find it in themselves to make the same things happen, they would probably come out of this week OK.
In case you were wondering, Hitler was not amused by the Lions victory.
