Lions Look To Improve Against Packers, Make Changes


Ok, so now that we know Tatum ‘I aint no thief’ Bell lied and is running around in someone else’s underwear, we can focus on the next task at hand, the Packers. (Seriously, Bell…what the hell are you thinking?!?!?!?) That being said, the Packers will be a good test to see where this Lions’ team really is at.

If the Lions put on a good showing on Sunday, it will be because they control the line of scrimmage, offensively and defensively. We have yet to see the defensive line dominate in the way that it needs to for the Tampa-2 to be effective. Going up against a strong, veteran front will be a challenge for our young D-Line. The Lions made two defensive personnel changes for Sunday’s game, Leigh Bodden will start for Travis ‘The Whiffer’ Fisher and Dan Bullocks will start for Gerald ‘ Grabbin for Air’ Alexander. Dizon is expected to get more playing time and split time with Paris ‘Tackle? I thought this was Touch’ Lenon.

Offensively, Manny ‘not that ManRam’ Ramirez will start in place of Stephen ‘Don’t Hurt Me’ Peterson. The Lions hope to improve their ability to drive the defensive line backwards and establish their zone blocking scheme. Look for more touches from Rudi this week. The Lions might also spread the field and go through the air since it is reported that Charles Woodson has a leg injury and because the Packers nickel and dime packages are sub-par.. (didn’t we say that about Atlanta??)

Ok, so its not a must win. But….The Lions NEED this win. Doubt is quick to set in when you have been a losing franchise for the last 20 years. 31-82 in the Millen Era. Doesn’t the pendulum swing at some point? Don’t all blind squirrels find a nut? I mean, we have waited so long. How long, you ask? Long enough to have gone through 4 presidents, 3 wars, 2 millenniums and even….
…1 man who steals another mans underwear. God save the Lions.
