The Detroit Lions have always been division foes. But more like the Milwaukee Bucks rather than the Detroit Pistons. More like the Houston Astros than the St. Louis Cardinals. But what the Lions lack in football skill, they make up for in just being dirty.
It would be hard to pin the latest Bears loss on quarterback Jay Cutler--he threw for nearly 250 yards with no interceptions. Cutler’s offensive line committed 9 false starts—some attributed it to the crowd, others said it was the rotating line.
The Bears game in Detroit proved to be the kind that we all expected: really boring battle against a really bad team. The Lions aren't bad. They are baaaad. I don't care if the announcers and experts around the NFL say otherwise. They are wrong.
