Thoughts after 1st quarter Tampa Bay, Lions

- If what Nick Fairley did to Tampa Bay quarterback Mike Glennon, drawing a roughing the passer call, a penalty, then it really isn't football any more. He didn't hit him in the knees unnecessarily. It was above the knees, The hit wasn't late. There was no reason to make that call unless you want to put a flag in the QB's back pocket and have him act like Brett Favre in a commercial for blue jeans.
- There was nothing to like about the way the Lions opened this game offensively. There just isn't wasn't much tempo. They have been oh-so-slow getting to the line and getting out of the huddle.
- Obviously, the Lions missed Ziggy Ansah. He's their one defensive end capable of getting home and sacking the QB. We've seen it already today.
- Jeremy Ross equals a big upgrade returning kicks from Michael Spurlock.
- Guard Carl Nicks, safety Dashon Goldson and linebacker Mason Foster are three of the Bucs' best players. The Lions should win this game based on that alone.
