The Lions are off to their best start since 1956 when Bobby Layne was their QB. This team showed a national television audience that they are for real.

Bring On The Packers !!!

That Packer game could be something, both teams have 5 games left.

That game will have both teams at .500 or better, when was the last time we had that on Thanksgiving morning?

You better watch out,
You better not cry,
You better not pout I'm telling you why,
The 49ers are coming to town.

This game will be interesting. 49ers are hampered by injuries. But I think they will be 3-0 on the road.

Of the 3 games to be played on Thanksgiving;

1) Packers @ Lion
2) Dolphins @ Cowboys
3) 49ers @ Ravens

The game no one will care about will be the Dolphins @ Cowboys.

I will.
And, I know several other people who will be watching. Just as you've never wavered from following the 49'ers, most of us Cowboys fans don't waver either. Win, lose, or draw, I'm going to watch them play.

But, as I've said many times, I watch the GAME, regardless of teams, even the bottom dwellers. You never know when you might see an outstanding play by anyone.

WHAT A DOG! Maybe they will bring back Leon Lett to do the coin flip.

I didn't realize they were expereincing hair loss..."Lions Rogain Their Rear"...?

Maybe it occured when Megatron climbed up that ladder in the end-zone (twice) and butt-rubbed the Cowboy's helmets? That could give you some hair loss.

You have reason to be excited over this young Lions team. I have been impressed with their defense and the poise of young Stafford. The Packers/Lions game should be a real thriller.

Let's not forget Super Bowl week this year. What a mess that was! People from Green Bay and Pittsburgh were disappointed the weather was colder than where they came from.

OK, now that's a funny play on words! Real funny in fact and not one comment? "Man, I get no respect..." <shaking head, holding tie knot, flopping knee and doing best Rodney Dangerfield imitation>

Congrats Detroit fans, your biggest hurdle now is G.B.

The Lions are good but the Patriots are better.

Go Patriots!
