    Interesting first three games, especially for coach Schwartz. The first game is against his protege Jeff Fisher, the new coach in St. Louis, who named him defensive coordinator in Tennessee. Then, the next game is against Jim Harbaugh after handshake gate last season, and then he returns to Tennessee in the third game.

    I’m just disappointed that Detroit did not receive a home Monday Night Football game. The atmosphere was tremendous last year but the lone Monday Night game this season in on the road in Chicago.

    I am with you Alek I am disappointed we did not get a Monday Night game in Detroit. Surprised me since what was said is that ESPN wanted more of that excitement in Detroit from last years Monday Night game against Da Bears. At least we have a Saturday night game at home against the Falcons. It is interesting the first three games of the season. GO LIONS!!!!

    I think most of you are overlooking the home game when we host Atlanta. That’s the “Monday Night Football” network at 8:30 on a Saturday. Aren’t those usually promoted as “Special Saturday edition of MNF?” Check out and look at week 16; we ARE Monday Night Football that week! No it’s not literally Monday night, but it’s still their feature game that week. All other games are on Sunday in week 16.

    Let’s see how many Atlanta players accuse us of picking on Matt Ryan this time…

    i suggest the lions coaches and players take long, hard looks at the st louis and san francisco 49rs games last year, especially vs us, and see how they exploited what they learned about us in the first half and how they changed their game to wipe the floor with us. really good teams always change it up the second half based on what they learned about the other team the first half. Also, really good teams always have second half changes in play and many surprises for the other team, developed in total secrecy, with no leaks, and everybody not on the team banned from viewing their practices. u of m did that on their way to the rose bowl. nobody could have known what they were practicing because nobody was allowed to see it being planned, not even the coaches’ or players’ spouses or parents. it’s also important for coaches and management to know their staff’s and players’ financial and moral backgrounds and activities, to make sure no games are thrown on the way to the superbowl for financial gain. this doesn’t usually come up unless the team is a real contender for the big prize or they are playing a team that is sure to get in the playoffs high up.
    the team is shaping up to repeat the winners, though the bobby carpenter trade mystifies me. I am sure they knew exactly what they were doing, however, and have complete confidence in their decision. as for the three marijuana users, they are dragging the team down with their poor personal habits. that drug is not going to make them better players, because it causes the heart to stop beating and just sit there fibrillating, quivering, causing them to throw clots into their heart and brain, and sometimes causing instant death. the other things marijuana does is it makes an idiot out of you on the field, because it erases your short term memory, and you cannot remember your plays, or even what happened a moment ago, plus it shortens your breath because you are inhaling it, reducing how much oxygen gets to your muscles and brain, and it slows your reflexes down and your motivation goes out the window because you feel too relaxed! There is a REASON it is illegal, chumps! If any of the coaches or management uses the stuff, they better learn fast that this gets around to the players, and is a rotten example for them in higher management! Owners, take note and clean up your own act, if you are guilty of that or other drug abuse or alcohol use. Alcoholics don’t make good players, either. They are too uncoordinated and too slow, and their judgment is wayyy off, so players beware of losing self control and keep your body your temple and clean of anything that messes you up mentally or physically! Try meditation and yoga, talking to a shrink or a trusted mentor, and learn to use your nerves positively. Most of you already know all this. Just make sure you are PRACTICING good habits! Eat fresh, and eat right, too! Greasy stuff also greases up your blood vessels and you don’t think as well and your blood pressure rises too high, making you feel tired out and winded because your circulation is bad. Fish every single day, including all seafoods, even shrimp, lobster, scallops and prawns and clams and oysters and sardines and kippers, keeps you mentally alert because fish causes your red blood cell platelets to get slippery and slide right past one another, instead of clumping together, and you get more oxygen and faster blood flow to all parts of your body, including your mind, which then can make lightning fast decisions and conclusions, and your body responds like lightning to your mind’s commands. Try this and see for yourself how well it affects your performance! If you ever have a headache or a heart pain or indigestion, eat some fish right away, never fried though, and watch that problem melt away immediately! It’s like a heart and stroke medicine, only natural!
