    It could be worse, we could have won today and lost a few key players, i would rather loose and keep our stars, we play detroit next week and yes, they won today, but the Lions lost a pair of star players as Pro Bowl cornerback Dre' Bly suffered a knee injury and wide receiver Charles Rogers left with a broken collarbone, the same injury that cost him all but the first five games last season.

    So this may be a advantage for us come sunday

    If we play like we did today then the Lions second team can beat us...

    Yes, it looks as though Rogers broke his collarbone and is probably out for the season. Prelimenary reports say Bly sprained his MCL and is out 3+ weeks. That was the good news for you, now the bad, the Lions still have 3 very capable receivers, Williams, Hakim, and Streets and Goodman (Bly's replacement) is pretty good. In fact, he started his rookie year and was hurt last season, plus we still have Bryant.

    Should be an interesting game. I am doing a write-up for the matchup for a lions MB, I'll post the link when I finish (hopefully tomorrow). Do any of you guys meet for games in Houston? I was thinking of going to BW3 on W. Gray.

    I don't know how much worse it could get for the Texan secondary...that truly was a "terrible" team effort against Sad Diego ..one of the weakest teams in the NFL.

    Detroit could put an undrafted tight end in the game and he would get open with Eric Brown's blanket coverage....yuck!

    yeah i guess yall are right ,,,i mean look at the patriots last years opener they lost 30 something to nothing and they didnt do anything all season,,,,oh WAIT they went to the superbowl didnt they !!!!! Lets not put the defense or offense out for good one week dont make a season. Yall should save all that negative talk if we get like 0-6 but not just yet.

    If Capers and the rest of the crew don't put a sound game plan then we will be asking for his head next week. I know some of you would say the team had one this week and they blew it. You can't play for close games all the time. Close games only won by great teams, we are not even a good team yet. Palmer has to open it up. The running game is not going to work every week unless your passing game is working and the oppesite is true too. If our Offinse is not on the feild most of the time then our Defense is going to get hurt and they won't last for the rest of the year. We can't count on a bunch of rookies to last a whole game with out being burnt and we have a lot of first timers on our Defense.

    Funny you should say that, Casey Fitzsimmons, 2nd year undrafted is arguably Det. best TE. But Alexander will probably get the start, but I highly disagree that Det. second team could beat Houston, I watched Det. preseason, it wasn't pretty

    OK, game plan time. Go for their cornerbacks' knees and their wide outs' collarbones. But don't throw the football at them, Carr. That doesn't seem to work real well.
