Tuesday open thread: Do you feel better

worse or the Detroit Lions Hoodie same after the Lions’ loss to the Jets? They say there’s no such thing as a stupid question, but today’s Question of the Day is going to test that mantra. It’s become a weekly tradition here at Pride of Detroit to gauge Lions fans’ confidence in the team throughout the regular season, asking fans whether they’re feeling better or worse about the team after each week’s performance. Coming out of the preseason, hope was lower than normal. The Lions looked horrible in pretty much every quarter of the exhibition season, but it was easy to brush that off as meaningless. Those concerns are much harder to ignore when the same issues popped up in the first regular season game against what was thought to be an inferior opponent. So today’s Question of the Day isgrinning smileyo you feel better, worse or the same after the Lions’ loss to the Jets?My answer: A lot worse... duh.I knew the defense was going to struggle early on, and not much about that side of the ball surprised me. In fact, early on, the defense actually looked a little better than I was expecting.However Youth Customized Detroit Lions Jerseys , the continued struggles of the offense were surprising, even if the feeling was all too familiar. For some time, the Lions’ offensive talent has been considered top-notch, but Detroit’s offense efficiency has never matched that perception. In the first week, the Lions’ run game continued to look awful, the Lions offense again had a debilitatingly slow start, and Matthew Stafford got his ass kicked yet again.Overall, there’s very little about this team that looked much different from the team that collapsed down the stretch against inferior opponents last year. And they may even be significantly worse than where they were at the end of 2017.I’m not saying the Lions made a mistake in hiring Matt Patricia or that their 2018 season is already lost, but www.lionsauthorizedshops.com , man, it’s really hard to feel good about this team right now, whereas you could at least make some sort of argument 24 hours ago.Your turn.Kerryon Johnson becomes the first 100-yard rusher for the Detroit Lions in 5 years November 28, 2013.It is a date that most Detroit Lions fans have committed to memory at this point. Almost five years ago was the last time that a Lions running back rushed for over 100 yards in a single game. Since Reggie Bush tallied 117 yards against the Packers, players like Joique Bell, Ameer Abdullah, Zach Zenner, and Theo Riddick have all fallen short.However, this fun trivia fact became a thing of the past on Sunday night against the New England Patriots. Kerryon Johnson Detroit Lions Womens T-Shirt , selected in the second round this past offseason, is the latest hope drafted by Detroit to break this curse, and he eclipsed the century mark on national television to finally end the Lions’ 70-game drought.Johnson looked exactly like the back the Lions hoped he would be, hitting 101 yards on 16 carries. He caught the ball twice for nine receiving yards as well. The running game as a whole has looked as good as it has in a long while against New England. LeGarrette Blount may not have been the record-breaker, but he added 48 yards of his own against a Patriots defense who looked like they missed their old defensive coordinator.
