- The Lions kept trying to go to Calvin Johnson and he looked like a rookie. He has outstanding potential, but I wasn't impressed with his first half.
- I did like the Lions center Dominic Raoila. The guy was getting into Packers faces, he was pushing, shoving and fighting until that whistle was blown. I like gritty hard players like that who will fight and think that losing isn't an option.
- The Lions kept single teaming Michael Strahan last week and let him sack Kitna 3 times, this week they are only single teaming Aaron Kampman. Kampman has been disrespected his whole career, and even after making the probowl the guy still doesn't get the respect he deserves. He did make the Lions pay with multiple sacks.
- Which leads to the next point that Kitna is tough, and that in a Mike Martz offense a tough quarterback is neccesary. He doesn't leave as many blockers so that he can send as many guys out there in pass routes. It reminds me of Steve Spurrier with the Redskins and the beating that his quarterback Patrick Ramsey took.
- Kitna takes a beating and is tough, but geez is that guy ugly as sin.
- I don't understand how Joe Buck is giving Favre credit now, when a couple of years ago he was one of the people calling Favre " Old" and more or less washed up.

I always believed in Favre and said that he could keep playing for YEARS. It's not like he's old and boring or anything... He just didn't have the talent in the last couple of years. The guy still has a rocket arm, thinks quick, and can move around. People wanted Favre to retire 2 years ago, but I think he can still play 3 more years if he wanted. Remember Rich Gannon was the leages MVP at 39 years old.

QB isn't as much about physical skills as it is intelligence and older players are usually smarter than younger players. Not only that, but it's not like Favre doesn't have an arm to go together with that brain.

Next up... Dallas Cowboys -14 ( 1 unit)
Happy Turdunken day.
