A good and likeable man who made us better and made us expect to get to the post-season rather than dream, but being caught with 9 and 10 players on the field is inexcusable at this level.

He left us in a better place than he found us, now we need the right man to make us viable playoff contenders.

Yeah, we and us. I support the Lions (something many would say is an affliction) and that’s why I’m here making a reasonable point about some of the good things Jim Caldwell did in his tenure.

Problem?

Get some help.

Just kidding. Lions fandom is badge of honor (stupidity).

Certain members here have problems with those words. I am not one of them.

Ah right, I assumed that may be the case. I’m English and we very much refer to “our” teams as “us” and “we”.

I wouldn’t refer to my team in the third person in the same way I wouldn’t refer to myself in the third person.

Admittedly I’m not on the roster (although I’d fancy myself on that O line) but I very much considering the Lions “us” and anyone else “them”.

Hope that clears it up! Divided by a common language.

He's just messing with you.

There is one guy on the board that will give you shit about it and be serious, but nobody else really gives a shit how you refer to the Lions

Nope. 'We' say we and us too.

It was kind of a sarcastic inside joke.

And my friend, 'we' swept the packers and the bears.

And also 'we' say fuck the vi-queens.

Hoping for a coach to take 'us' to the next level in 2018.

I say 'we' and 'us' all of the time. But usually those two words are attached to "suck, blow, can't compete," and other forms of whining about the current state of Lions affairs.

Someday I hope to talk about our team in a more positive manner.

I agree.

Good to see you chipping in, TLL.
