Sept. 9/10. Sellout at Ford Field
This home opener was definitely a nail biter! The Lions sure gave the Eagles a run for their money! Detroit was ahead 17-7 mid-way through the second quarter and hopes were high, but with lots of penalties and Michael Vick getting his second chance at being a starter quarterback; they just couldn't pull it off. Lord knows they tried!
They even recovered an onside kick with 1:50 left in the game but couldn't get anywhere with it. All in all we stayed right to the end and had a lot of fun! On a happier note for the Lions; Jahvid Best was named Offensive Rookie of the Month. He became the first rookie in NFL history with at least 75 (78) rushing yards, 150 (154) receiving yards and 3 touchdowns in a single game against Philly in his second game as a pro! This is the second year in a row that a Lion has been named Rookie of the Month in September. Last year was Louis Delmas. All I know is the Detroit Lions are proving they can hold their own with the big contenders and are the team to watch out for!!
On a sadder note, my poor Nate hurt his ankle and will be out for a couple of games. Hopefully he will be able to play against St. Louis. Okay, okay, I already know that he did as I am so late writing this post. I just wanted it to seem authentic!! And yeah Steve, I'm even starting to like Hill! Hey, against the Eagles, we'll take the 35-32 loss, thankyou very much!! Goooooooooo Lions!!!!
