Halftime, trailing 17-14
after holding the Lions to a field goal—and I use the term ‘holding’ loosely, maybe I should say after the the Lions held themselves to a field goal—we drive right down the field and score on a 83 yard drive. Great play-calling by Martz, and great play by Earl Bennett. He would be my choice for player of the game at this point. His run-after-catch on this drive was AWESOME, dragging five defenders down to the ten yard line. We forced another Lions punt, which is amazing considering we haven’t figured out that the only two plays the Lions can run are a)screen pass and b) end around with Stephan Logan. We punt it right back, and just as we expect to get to halftime with a 14-10 lead, WOW—we give up two of the worst defensive plays I have seen us give up in a longtime—one on a 45-yard Jahvid Best run; and a 46-yard Calvin Johnson catch. On both plays, we looked tackled like a PeeWee footbal team.
