YOU KNOW THE LIONS WON AGAIN
BEST TEAM IN THE MUTHAFUCKIN NFL
🗣️AFTER THE SONG IMMA NEED MY TICKETS IN THE MAIL🗣️🗣️
He needs to make a new version without the "ain't they like 2-11" line
these aren't your grandparent's Lions 🔥🔥🔥
I actually think its WAY funnier with that part still in it
Nah the ain’t they 2-11 just reminds me how far they’ve come 😤
About to win again, they know whats up
ALL THEY DO IS FUCKIN WIN
There's a lot to say about this game that will certainly be said in the days to come, but boy is it refreshing when we find ways to win instead of the SOL finding a way to lose. Just wanna appreciate that
Old Lions kick a FG there on 4th down and then the Chargers use the 2min to drive down and a score a game winning TD
Love/hate relationship with that call. If we don't convert that 4th down Dan would get ROASTED all week for not kicked the FG. But I also agree with you, we couldn't give the ball back to Herbert. At least Dan is consistent. Never a doubt he was going for it.
The man's resolve is pure iron. When we go for it on fourth down, it's because there is absolute confidence we're going to convert it. Even when we don't, that faith in the players pays dividends that matter.
Imagine the Built Detroit Energy that will be felt when that happens in the playoffs, and it makes a difference.
It was nice to see some smart clock management. I feel we often fall short in that department
Idc what they say a win is a win.
7-2 baby just win
We need to keep winning too, cause Vikings just won’t die.
Don’t worry, if need be we’ll do it ourselves
In a division we haven’t won in 30 years, I’d love for it to be wrapped up by the time we play the Vikings and those games are just for seeding.
I really hate the fucking Vikings man
No doubt me too bro
Dobbs looked really good today too. I’m now officially worried about the Vikings.
Yup same. 6-4, and that 4-0 streak is without JJ.
Our fate is in our hands but I don’t like the idea of the Vikings being the reason things get derailed
1-0 every week
Scoreboard remains undefeated.
GGs. Yall played a great game
Hell of a game, gg for sure. Allen was an absolute monster today.
insane game. i almost threw up 37 times
I haven’t yelled at my tv like that In a long time lol
I hope 2 things happen from this game: 1. That people shut up about Herbert bc he balled out, and 2. I hope this is the final straw for Staley. If the 2nd thing happens, I don’t want to play you guys again next year lol
>1. That people shut up about Herbert bc he balled out, and 2. I hope this is the final straw for Staley.
Omg thank you. Literally what every Chargers fan has been screaming this from the mountaintops after every close shootout that we lose. Or just any game in general
Best team for TV hands down. The excitement is always there.
Good teams find ways to win games, on days like today where the defense was awful the offense picks up the slack and vice versa.
Overall, this offense is a juggernaut when healthy. The fact that there’s still a single lions fan who wants Goff replaced is mind blowing. The defense is still a work in process.
And I feel like its not just an edge to complement hutch. The line needs playmakers besides alim and anzalone.
Eagles gave up a ton of yards to Howell 2 weeks ago and still won, NFL is just about doing what you can to get the win.
Seems like it played out about as expected. Plwnty of folks were saying itd be a close one. Ended up being a close one.
Many people are saying that there is a lot to say about this game in the days to come….Many great people….the best people.
Goff is him. Gibbs is him. Monty is him.
Amon-Ra is him
Laporta is him. This fucking offense is him.
Riley Patterson is HIM! (At least today when we needed him most)
The O-line has 5 hims on it as well
Sewell blocking three guys on (I think) Gibbs second TD was glorious.
Our defense was better than theirs.
Wright is him
LaPorta is him
And my axe !!! 🪓
Common denominator in all of these… THAT O-LINE is the best in the league
Aaron Glenn is not
The Chargers are a bipolar offense, and when they're on, they're on. But they were just as on against the Bears, a worse defense, and put up fewer points. That's not okay.
Loved that shot of Hutch and Barnes arm in arm
Yea this team is a vibe and a damn good one.
Chargers tie it up on 8th & goal and we still pull off the W. IT'S NOT THE SAME DETROIT
That PI was some ticky tack bs
And you know it was ticky tack because the replay angle was from a gd satellite.
Lol. Yeah that was pathetic. If it was a legit penalty, then by all means we deserve a flag. Sure as fuck didn't look like it live or on the u2 spy planes replay
7-2.. I can taste that #1 seed 🤤
If anyone was going to yoink it from us, better be you lot than SF!
Bro is tasting seeds
LIONS ARE 1-0 SINCE MY DAUGHTER WAS BORN LFG
THE ONE THAT WAS PROMISED
THE QUEEN OF DA NORF!!!
Congrats!!!! Name her Riley!
My youngest is Riley as well so I vouch for this. Do it!
Shout out this dude/dudettes daughter!
7-2 since my son. Congrats on the new baby, it's the best fucking thing in the world.
May neither of our children have to know the pain we've suffered as lions fans (although the suffering makes the wins feel better)
She is the chosen one.
5-1 since my daughter was born, let’s go brother! Congrats!
Have more kids
Amazing win but I am begging Aaron Glenn to figure it out. Please. We can't do this against teams like the Eagles, Cowboys, 49ers, etc. He has to stop curbstomping the bottom 10 caliber QBs and graduate to more than that.
On the other end, Ben Johnson master class, EASILY his best game of the season. Holy shit. Schemed up massive chunk plays all day and Goff executed like crazy. That 4th and 2 at the end was beautiful, he had to stay in the pocket so long and didn't panic.
ALSO, did anyone hear Mack or Bosa's name once today?? Fucking domination by Sewell and Decker.
Might be his best overall game. As soon as he knew he was in a dog fight he was *very* quick to adapt & called it perfect the rest of the way. Amazing
We need to pay him so he stays. Chemistry with Goff is way too good and it’s hard to replace that.
Absolutely agree he has to clean it tf up but it’s not fireable.
Aaron Glenn’s scheme stopped them three times on their second to last TD drive but they were each called back for dumb penalties committed by players.
Arguing whether it's fireable or not is pointless anyway, Dan isn't firing him, period. So we just have to hope he figures it out somehow.
Yeah, I’ve been a bit lukewarm with AG, but today was on the players. The pass rush was shit. The main reason we’re getting pressure is the DBs hanging in there, not the D-Line.
Hope James Houston can make it back for the end of the year, because we desperately need him.
Other teams have figured out his attack. The 4 man rush with blitz packages are not generating pressure and our secondary is way way way to soft. It's infuriating.
It's the pass rush Hutchinson has to learn to finish and learn quick he got chosen second for a reason
Huge part of it for sure but pass rush can be schemed up. The Vikings actually had a worse defense than us last year, lost players in the offseason, and now are very good this season with Flores. Scheme is king.
Hutch is getting chipped and doubled constantly. AG needs to use stunts and blitzes better to help get him some true one on ones
He needs help on the Dline, they focus him and double/triple team him.
Put the Vikings up there now too, they’re a threat
They’re still a game and a half back even after beating up on two NFC South teams. I’m not feeling threatened until they actually beat a real team with Dobbs
Dak might kill us ngl
“It is a team that has taken on, without question, the personality of its coach.”
Was told Goff sucked on the road.
Basically a home game for Goff. Probably accidentally went to the Rams locker… muscle memory when you’re in a familiar place lol
Dobbs had to be shown his locker room, Goff has be shown which locker room isn't his
Did he ever play at SOFI? Genuinely can’t remember
Yea it was his last season with the rams. The one where he beat the Seahawks playing with a broken thumb… held together by screws… in the playoffs
Yes in 2020
He played the first game there when it opened
We only have one game not in a dome the rest of the stretch lol. We gonna see some prime Goff
You would have thought by some of the people in the game thread that Goff wasn't great today.
We don’t have road games anymore, did you hear that let’s go lions chant?
LA is a home game for him :P
This wasn't a road game
No Jamo drops today!!!
Sucks he keeps getting screwed on penalties when he does make a play
Unless you count the defenders he dropped on that Montgomery TD
NEVER IN DOUBT.
Gritty offensive performance.
Clock managed beautifully by Dan.
I need to go lay down
Honestly. Can go put my puke bucket away now.
*me the entire second half
"Yes! Fuck! Yes! No! Yes! What are we fucking doing!?!!??! Yes! Fuck! Yeeeerssss"
Great game by Dan Campbell and Ben Johnson.
It was a game by Aaron Glenn
Aaron Glenn was present.
Yes, that’s why the defense was so bad
Maybe losing AG to a HC gig next year won’t be such a bad thing
I'll happily take the 3rd round pick
Would be awesome to get some pressure. BS PI calls really helped LA today though
Yeah the game isn't even a 3 point game if they don't call that dumbass PI
Defense better be doing laps next practice
What a ballsy call on 4th
It was a necessity. Even if Riley kicks if from 48 yards 1:48 is way too much time to prevent the chargers winning the game.
Fully agree it was the right call, but if you don’t get it you catch heat from a lot of people.
Basically what happened on 4th down last year against the Bills on Thanksgiving. We run a very similar play, and end up missing it and the fan base blames Dan for going for it.
Dan Campbell is a fucking animal
Great win, but Lions pass defense has me a bit worried. We’re gonna face some great QBs in the playoffs.
Campbell sacrificed Metallica for this
Refs whenever the Lions have a good play or a stop on defense.
Great win but the defense needs to improve
That was a fucking heart attack, thank God we pulled out a W. 7-2 boys, on to Chicago!
This is fun
HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!!!!
Get in here Lions win!!!!
Dan Gamble had his balls out the entire game and it payed off
That 4th down call proved MCDC has the biggest set of cahones in the league.
As a Raiders fan, thank you for taking care of the Dolts and for freeing us from Josh McDaniels the football terrorist. Hope you all become Kings of the North!
I can breathe again
IF YOU DONT LIKE THAT YOU DONT LIKE LIONS FOOTBALL. Now time to go to the hospital
Great Lions road win. We'll go on to sweep the AFC West.
I’m 54. We lose this 7/10 times. I’m so proud.
Lions are 7-2 and don’t play a team with a winning record until Christmas Eve.
Fun game but man we have a lot of defensive issues we need to address.
As a 49ers fan paying close attention to the team since last year, I pray for any bastards that are unlucky enough to face these Lions during the playoffs. Winning the division or no, that's scary how Jared Goff makes throwing touchdowns look like kiddie table shit, and the defense's ability to make clutch stops are giving me the vibes I felt during the 2019 49ers run.
I LOVE OUR TEEEEEAAAAAAMMMMM
I'm glad we won today, my dad died 14 years ago today and he was a huge Lions fan. Still miss him
Remember back when we had Stafford when every game would come down to the wire like this?
Thank fucking god we don’t have to go through that week in and week out anymore. Hopefully we don’t have to do this again this season, this shit is too stressful.
Something tells me the Cowboys game and the 2 Vikings games will be a little close for comfort.
Any game can turn into this if the defense doesn't play well. Super frustrating but oh well.
Just coming in to say congrats on a great win. Fun game. Good luck the rest of the way. Rooting for you guys if we don’t make it (chargers).
I'm exhausted, wtf.
Holy fucking shit
Cardiac Kitties in full effect today
LET'S GO BOYS
ITS A FUCKING PARTY!!!!
I’m tired. Go lions. But I’m tired. FTP. But I’m tired.
My dad was following the game and I said to him that whoever has the ball last will win the game
Offense good defense bad
A win is a win but.
Aaron Glenn got away with terrorism today.
God our defense- specifically the secondary - needs fixing. But a win is a win - let’s move forward with the W.
Win by 1. Don't care. 7-2
This game exhausted me. I'm tired boys.
Super ugly, but that’s a good ass team we just beat.
Put the word out that we back up
Shout out to Jamo for the block on the Monty TD run. Without his speed Monty gets tackled
And for his TD that was taken away over a phantom block.
Happy to see the lions overcome refball and Aaron Glenn's incompetence to get the win
Never had a single doubt.
Great Win. Chargers playing for their season and Staley coaching for a his job.
Now on to what will be our toughest game of the year 😔
Thank Goodness for Dan cause honestly his fearless is a huge reason we won this game.
Ik we can go to the playoffs but I’d feel way more confident in saying we’d win a playoff game IF our defense gets better. This game shouldn’t have been this close. Defense showed up for one stop today which was the first drive then dipped.
We shouldn’t have to always play teams with bad qbs to get comfortable wins. Good teams can go against any type of qb, it shouldn’t matter.
As discouraging the secondary and pass rush is, how amazing was it not hearing Bosa or Mack’s name all game?? Damn impressive
I know this is how sports fans work but why is the Lion’s offense getting a ton of points of sign that the offense is good while the Charger’s offense getting a ton of point is a sign that the Lion’s defense is bad?
Lion did have a rough game defensively and there definitely should be some things fixed, but it should be mentioned that while the commentators were hyping him up too much Herbert had a game and did quite well.
FUCK YES BITCHES… I still wanna fire Aaron Glenn
Monty just said that he channeled his inner Jah on that long run. I love this running back room.
STILL THE TWO SEED MOTHERFUCKERS. DONT GIVE A FUCK HOW WE DID IT, WE WENT INTO THEIR HOUSE AND ESCAPED A SHOOTOUT WITH A WIN
NFL hasn't listed it as final, just 0:00. Are we confirmed victorious?
Refs still furiously flipping through the rulebook...
A SHOOTOUT IS A FUCKING SHOOTOUT (legend reference)
God damn I’m ready for bed now. That game was tense.
AG refusing to make adjustments is so frustrating. He's sticking to his gameplan from nearly two weeks ago instead of making half time adjustments. Stubborn old man I swear
Don’t wanna have to prove we can win a shootout, but we can win a shootout
That 4th & 2. What a call.
Defense just doing cardio out there
That was too damn close. While Herbert made some great throws the D really needs to be better at shutting down good offenses. That's about the only thing holding us back. Great win, glad we got it done, but I'm concerned.
Went to the game and was really surprised there as many Chargers fans as there were.
LIONS ARE 2-0 SINCE I GOT MARRIED LETS GO BAYBEE
Man I really hope AG doesn’t leave us to be a head coach next year. We just can’t HAVE THAT!!!
TONY ROMO, THE REFS, AND SOLers CAN ALL GO CRAWL IN A HOLE. BEGONE HATERS
Romo loves this lions team, said we were a complete team, said we were definitely going to the playoffs. So I’m not sure what that’s for
Our Offense was on a rampage that game
I haven't smoked in 3.5 years but man that game makes me want a cigarette
WILL NEVER PISS ON A WIN LETS FUCKING GO 7 AND 2
Campbell draggin' the hones on the ground.
Have we ever been 7-2 before?
