Same Auld Loss Syne - Official Game Thread

Packers at Lions

Detroit is a 7 point favorite.... so expect a close and brutal loss to send Caldwell to a 8-8 record and contract extension....

It sounds like the decision has already been made on Caldwell. It was likely playoffs or bust.

This game doesn't matter.

Realistically, Lions underachieve early, Trail at halftime, rally and win 21-17. Caldwell gets fired

I'm looking forward to getting nekkid and watching this shit show. First a trip to the dispensary. I found it really helps.

It wouldn't surprise me to see the lions get their asses handed to them.

GO PACKERS!
Did the homework myself because nobody had an answer. Lions should get a higher draft pick than the Packers if the Lions lose today.
Lions 8-8
Packers 8-8.
Lions current strength of schedule (SOS) is .495833
Packers SOS is .5375.
"In situations where teams finished the previous season with identical records, the determination of draft position is decided by strength of schedule — the aggregate winning percentage of a team’s opponents. The team that played the schedule with the lowest winning percentage will be awarded the higher pick."

With Lawson inactive and Hayden reportedly having an illness (read this like two days ago), hopefully TEEZ NUTZ gets a lot of playing time.

I'm actually going to watch this game. I can't wait to see Caldwell shit himself on the sidelines.

The Lions aren’t losing this game. If Rodgers were playing it would be a toss up but he’s not. The Lions will mollywap them again

Lions won't lose because it benefits them if they do lose. Such a SOL thing to do.
I'd rather draft at 15 than 19. See, the 2010 NFL Draft. The difference of 4 to 5 spots.

The talking heads on the radio are saying that Caldwell will be fired after this game and the Lions will be going after Matt Patricia. I don't know if Patricia knows this or not.

Would Patricia even want to be a head coach?
