I'm watching this game, be interesting to see the young Lions. Also want to look at Kevin Jones.
Lions aren't looking too hot so far.....Eagles not much better at this point. But it's early still.
Right now they'd just been punting the ball back and forth to each other. Jones looks tentative right now. It's early though.
Ritchie's gone to the locker room, x-rays I'm sure, but not sure on what.
I already like Julius better... KJ is "giving up" on runs, like Parcells says he hates.
Lions stopped them, made a beautful play, but Mcnabb kept the play alive and made a first down. He's still the key to that offense.
Mcnabb went deep to Mitchell, Detroit had good coverage just a damn nice play by the Eagles.
Brock Marion might want to think about filing those retirement papers.
Terrible call, Mcnabb throws the ball out of bounce and Philly get's it first and goal at the one.
But these Lions dbs are bringing a lot on themselves.
They're making the decision to let Otis Smith go look bad.
The Lions need to stop allowing the big gainers. Make the Eagles work for it instead of allowing these plays that are over 20-40 yards.
Bad CB play and penalties....will always kill you. Eagles will always look good if you give them the game.
Really, if that ball wasn't "uncatchable", I don't know what is. It landed eight yards out of bounds.
I don't think they even call "uncatchable" anymore. I've seen a ton of penalties called on uncatchable balls this year. It should only be a hold if the CB could actually catch the ball.
NFL network commercial was good.
I'm not sure why there was ever any doubt about this game.
Someone asked the question, "Are the Lions for real?"
