Thumbs up

Keep bringin' it, Blake. I may not agree with everything you post, but it's interesting to read posts from an outside perspective...you're one of the VERY few Cowboy fans around here who post stuff worth reading.

My predictions:

* Texans 26, Lions 24.

* Both teams have 2 INTs and at least 7 penalties.

* AJ gets his first receiving TD.

* CBS announcers will make at least one stupid joke about "Carr driving into Ford Field," or something like that.

Bring on Sunday! This'll be a great game.

I like Houston in this one 24-9 shutting down Kevin Jones and keeping the youngster Harrington under constant pressure. Roy Williams will perform well in the game but no scores. Andre Johnson and Jabar Gaffney both score a TD, Domanick holds on to the football this game and get the third TD. The lone field goal will be due to a penalty plagued drive after getting into the RedZone.

the only O-lineman on the Lions O-Line that is a better passblocker then he is a run blocker is Jeff Backus, who is still a really good run blocker... the Lions do have a good runblocking line...
Reasons why Jones only rushed for 36 yards:
1. Jones himself... the tried to do to much... what i mean by this, there would be a hole where he could gain 4 yards, but tried to get to the outside to try and get more yards and would get stopped at the line...

2. Coaching... they tried running him to the outside all day where he never had any success and ran very little inside where they were having pretty good success...

3. The O-Line doesnt get off scott free, but they did a pretty good job. i saw some blocks that should have been made but werent, but not many...

4. The Bears have one of the best front 7 in the league... the WLB is weak, (Joe Odom)and one of the Bears DTs is weak(Alfonso Boone), but the rest is ROCK solid... Urlacher at MLB, Lance Briggs who is proving to be a force at SLB, Adawale Ogunleye, the AFC sack leader last year at LDE, Tommie Harris, a very talented DT who looked good vs the Lions and Alex Brown who was pretty good last year...

Did you watch the game?

The announcers really know no more than me and you and Im sure the game was locally televised resulting in some praise for the Lions.
I wouldn't know about local announcers, I'm in Houston, hence, HoustonLionsFan (plus look ^^^)

Quote:
Other than that I dont claim to know much more about the Lions O-line then what I have been told or have read
Wow, way to form your 'own' opinions

Quote:
nor will I try to
What an open mind you have. That's the way to form opinions, ignorance


Quote:
It seems everyone I know agrees that the offensive line for Detroit is poor
Well, it would seem that that 'everyone' is as uneducated/ignorant as you.

Quote:
...and the game against Chicago kind of highlights this point.
Again, did you watch the game? Or are you talking out cho *** again?

Quote:
Kevin Jones should of had much more than 36 yards in the game
Yeah, if he would have hit the right holes, he would have. What about Pinner, 5 for 21, and Bryson, 3 for 18. Oh that's right, you wouldn't know because it's easier to form opinions without the facts (huh?)


Quote:
...a talented running back like that would of atleast broke 50 yards if blocking upfront was better
Huh, you're wrong again. See above

Quote:
Sorry my opinions are not yours but this is what I think
That's fine, I was trying to help you form a more educated opinion, not an ignorant one


Quote:
Im not biased against the Lions or anything of that nature
Never said you were

Quote:
But if you say you've been nothing but polite on these boards then continue to show it by throwing your arrogance towards me out the window
When have I not been polite? And arrogance is the wrong word, sarcastic is probably closer.

Quote:
If my opinion struck a debate then it was unintentional
It has only turned into a 'debate' because you refused to listen to someone more informed than yourself about a subject, presented in an objective way, to state your 'own' ignorant opinion.

Quote:
Im sure your much more well informed on the Lions then I am
Yes, so why are you not listening? Everyone else on the board asked question and we had nice conversations, you made a false statement about something you know nothing about and won't listen to people who do. Ignorant and stubborn, sheesh.

Quote:
so you can have the last word
No, please, make us more stupid with 'your' opinions (but you better go talk to 'everyone' first)

Quote:
however this argument is so trivial to me.
WOW, Holier than thou, I guess it is true, Ignnorance is Bliss

I see a struck a nerve, Im loving every minute of this. Sorry but watching you get angry makes me smile.

Edit: When you have to quote every little phrase I make individually it just shows your frustration. Ok, I know I said I was done discussing this with you but I really am now. Just remember, the angrier you get...the more enjoyable it is for me. It's been nice talking to you.

Angry? Not even close. I actually am laughing with you, no, actually, at you.

That's funny, I wasn't (and am not) even frustrated. I was trying to break it down for you into nice little bite size pieces since you didn't seem to comprehend (oops, sorry, understand) the point I was trying to make.

Hey Dudes and dudettes, this was suppose to be prediction post only. I see that it had been turned into a smack forum. Now I have to sort through all of that to find your prediction and post it. Oh what the heck have at it.

Sorry Diehard, it wasn't smack. Just a Cowboy fan that didn't know what he was talking about and to stubborn to listen to a mostly-unbiased breakdown.

Im a Texans fan also...theres nothing wrong with supporting two teams. Im done smack talking also, I was just trying to pull the guys strings and mess with him a bit. It's obvious he has more knowledge on the Lions then I do, I wanted to see if I could unerve him a bit with my redicoulous statements. It was all in good fun, no harm intended.

Texans 27 - Lions 17

One TD will be by taking a punt return to the house - you heard it here first!

Nothing wrong with that Blake, keep at it. That's what this board is for to have fun with what ever it's as long as it's in good taste.

I think it will be a close game, but then I thought SD would be a walk away for us.

Texans 28
Lions 24

Nothing anyone says, could make me change my mind about Rogers... he was a better college player and a better pro prospect, IMO... even if the Lions look stupid right now for not drafting AJ, at the time Rogers was the right choice...
