Mincemeat Pie

Well, ladies and gents... it's happened. I sit here in stunned silence. How could he have known? Roy Williams (not the Cowboys' DB, but the Lions' WR) boldly predicted that, "We will win this game. Y'all can take that as a guarantee or whatnot, but we will win this game." He was referring to the game against the Chicago Bears. The game today. And this was after pointing out how the Lions almost scored 40 points in their 9 - 6 loss to Seattle.

Williams and the Lions improved their play considerably. No kidding. Having only 3 catches, 36 yards, and Gott only knows how many imagined touchdowns last week, Williams had 6 catches for 71 yards in today's game. The Lions' offense showed that they were capable of more than last week's results, too. I am not sure how many points they almost scored, but it was a slaughter in Chicago.

Or it would have been, if the score wasn't really Chicago 34, Detroit 7.

Roy, you're a young player with plenty of talent, and much to learn. I hope you learned a lesson from this:

Naaahh, watching loudmouths make jackasses of themselves only adds to the entertainment :)

The real test for the Bears will be when they play anyone good...

I second Grau's comments.

As much as it pains me to admit it this year.

Well of course Detroit won. I picked Chicago.

I'm tellin' you - this is NOT a good football year for me so far........

Uhhh, Chicago did win, dear :)

Thats kind of surprising isn't it, A wide reciever talking too much? on second thought, TO, Keyshaun and Moss are all WR's so it's kind of common I guess. Big shoes to fill but he'll get there.

BTW, I feel your pain I'm a Carolina fan and I feel like I've been kicked in the gut.

Quick! Grab a camera!! I'm actually BLUSHING!!!

You know it's a bad thing when I'm so damned tired I can't even READ a score right!!!

Thanks Grau! ;-)

Hey, the Lions are pretty good at making asses of themselves. It's not surprising.

The coach when first hired earlier in the year made all sorts of promises about winning.

Nobody here believed him. He's proving the fans right, bet we have a new coach again next season.
