Thoughts at halftime, Lions, Falcons

- The Lions need to take a shot or two down the field. Matthew Stafford's strength is stretching the field, not dink and dump passing. What happened to the kid with all that swagger? He looks like a different player today. Now, this is where redemption often comes in for top quarterbacks. That would be leading a comeback. Is Stafford being exposed as not as good as he was as the Lions started this season 5-0, or is he an elite player? The second half will be a good gauge.

- The Lions defense was playing OK until that scoring drive by the Falcons. This one is mostly on the offense so far. It has been amazing unproductive. So has the Lions' defensive line. Looks overrated based on the first half, anyway.

- Tony Gonzalez may 35 years old, but he can still play. Certain Hall of Famer at Ford Field today.
