He had a D like the Jags, and the Lions struggled to blow anyone out in 2014 except bad teams. That 19-7 win against GB? The defense scored more points than the offense. As dominating as that defense was for large stretches that season - the Lions offense kept leaving a lot of teams hanging around.

The reality is if Blake Bortles is good enough to win a playoff game it's because he is good enough to win a playoff game. Has nothing to do with Stafford. Stafford will be good enough to win a playoff game when he wins one.

In the last 2 Playoff games, one with Linehan, the other with Cooter, the lions last 7 Quarters of play resulted in 5 scoring plays.

All field goals. Yep must be coaching

They did not get past the 35 yard line in last years playoff game - can't blame that on the defense.

All this points to is what many have said here. You can't expect to win very many games against GOOD teams (which playoff teams are) without either a running game or a HOF caliber QB. The latter are sorely in very short supply.

Lions need a running game they can rely on, badly.

Huh. Eagles getting lots of help from the run game, and a strong D.

Maybe Folz is QB Jesus, and it's not Wentz after all.

Certainly they are not getting their ass handed to them.

Simple formula, no matter who the QB is:
Don't turn the ball over
Run the ball
Play good defense

You will never get blown out with that formula. Might lose a lot of close ones, but you don't need a HOF caliber QB to not get blown out.

Nick Foles is the best QB to ever play the game.

NICKE FOLES is in the NFL history books as a playoff game winner

Of course he is.

Best. QB. Ever.

Til the late game. There will be another perfect shiny thing responsible for all the goodness in the universe for your enjoyment.

Yep. You win there. Can't argue with proven facts.

Thanks. But it's really not that tough in this case. Not like climbing kilimanjaro, landing a man on the moon, refilling the toilet paper roll ON the holder, etc.

So, if you're playing at home...

156 yards by Derrick Henry irrelevant (led to a W finger sandwich)

Wentz being out sunk the Eagles (Ranch & BBQ W finger sandwiches).

More accurate gambling advice to come. Catch the fever.

Not to worry, DWT is feverishly googling stats that will indicate that Nick Foles is a better QB than Stafford to continue the narrative that Stafford will never win a playoff game.

Doesn't have to.

Nick Foles singlehandedly made the plays to win a playoff game.

Foles > Mediocre Matty. It's indisputable. Give up now and try and trade Stafford for Foles or Bortles. The Lions might have to throw in a couple of firsts in order to acquire one of these playoff winning QBs (because how else will we get the Eagles or Jaquars to take Mediocre Matty), but it'll be worth it.

You're right about feverishly - I was sick yesterday with a high fever. But you're as stupid as ever, doesn't matter if Nick Foles is better than Stafford or not statically (statistics is you morons) Nick Foles did something yesterday the Mediocre Matty can never do - he made plays to win a very tough and a very good game. Mediocre Matty is still wondering from his last playoff game what the wide white line is way on the other side of the 35 yard line.

You're right, I was wrong about Foles, I thought he would be able to make plays to win the game - I was wrong, now I kind of know what it feels to be you.

Oh and BTW, your comment about henry is fucking wrong and stupid, Henry had most of that 156 yards after I made that comment, but that won't stop you from keep posting it - but have fun.
