Thoughts halftime Lions, Steelers

- Calvin Johnson dropped a pass in the first quarter and Matthew Stafford missed with multiple passes he should have made, but they displayed how quickly they can turn it around on the 79-yard TD connection. The play featured the best of both players, Stafford's arm strength and awareness, and Johnson's strength, hands and ability to make a play after the catch. It was an oasis in an otherwise desert of mediocre play by the Lions in the first half to that point. It changed the course of the game. The Lions' defense started to get its act together, too.
- There are a lot of things to like about Reggie Bush, but ball security lately isn't one of them. It was his second fumble in the last three games, and neither was excusable. These type of playing conditions are ready-made for Joique Bell's skill set.
- It would be naïve to believe David Akers isn't a concern for the Lions. It's getting to the point where each of his field goal attempts seems to be an adventure.
- Larry Warford belongs in the Pro Bowl this year. He has played outstanding football for the Lions from Day 1. What a terrific third-round draft pick, and perhaps the most underrated factor in the Lions' turnaround this season.
- Awful offense at the goal line to end the half by Detroit..What kind of play calling was that? Brutal. Talk about poor play design. Yikes.
