Thoughts after 1st quarter Lions, Bears

- Matthew Stafford has done a terrific job of spreading the football around. Some might say he has missed on a couple passes, but I saw it more like Kris Durham and Calvin Johnson missed making makeable receptions.
- Not a good quarter for Joe Haden, the Browns' much-hyped cornerback. The Lions are actually exploiting him more than avoiding him.
- With all due respect to tight end Joseph Fauria, who has become a red zone TD reception specialist, but it's always good to see Calvin Johnson come up with touchdown receptions. It's a part of his game that was missing last season, but he flat out dropped a sure TD in the first quarter.
- Browns' QB Brandon Weeden gets a lot of criticism for holding onto the ball for too long, but such criticism masks the real issue which is his lack of mobility. He is slow and simply doesnot move well in the pocket.
- Gosh, the more I see of Sam Martin as the Lions' punter, the more I see him as a weapon. So far, he has done a terrific job of containing some of the best kick returners in the game. This week it is Travis Benjamin. Too bad the same can't be said for the Lions' secondary.
