Very similar

Big expectations --underperforming

1st pick of QB in draft -- does not look like such a deal any longer

Big name WR -- thrown to in too many situations

Running game -- does not materialize

Defense -- would make no news but for injuries

Both coaches - thought to be good hires their first season

The Lions are 4th in total offense, sencond in passing offense.

They are also 8th in total defense.

How are they similar outside of having a disappointing record compared to expectations?

Was wondering the same. They are moving the ball but Stafford is just not getting them into the endzone this year.

A loss is a loss, forget the stats. Common theme is underachieving.

What was funny was both the Lions and Chicago abandoned the run in the red zone.

They both only scored one TD.

But the Lions are the losers so they're the only ones being questioned.

Bad analogies. Cam is playing for a big contract he hasnt received yet, Stafford already got his. 72 mill to be exact.

Schwartz is much better as a HC than Ron.

To be fair to #89, while most people here thinks he gets too many targets, I disagree and think he should be getting more than what he is getting so far.

Calvin Johnson has 38 receptions on 66 targets (8th in the league)
Steve Smith has 28 receptions on 47 targets (37th in the league)

Calvin is 5th in receiving yard (592) while Smith is 14th (471).
Chud (and Cam) needs to target Smith more often.


The only two receivers who get less targets than Smith in the top 20 in yards is Decker and Thomas and that is because they take targets away from each other.

Throw #89 the damn ball.
