Thoughts halftime Lions, Falcons

- The Falcons are 2-5, desperate and badly in need of a win. And they are playing like it. The Lions, on the other hand, are playing like a team which has already limped into its bye week. What a nightmare of a first half for the Lions. I thought it was summed up by Ndamukong Suh inadvertently colliding with Nick Fairley, injuring Fairley's knee. The Lions could really use C.J. Moseley right now. Bad timing for his conduct issue. Jeez.
- This looks like the Lions' offense from late last season when it was void of any real weapons other than a banged up Calvin Johnson. Think about it: Matt Ryan is throwing to Julio Jones, Roddy White and Henry Douglas, while Stafford's options are Golden Tate, and well, Golden Tate. Without Megatron, Reggie Bush and their tight ends, the Lions' are badly lacking a supporting cast for Stafford.
- The Lions offensive line just isn't playing well. Hasn't all season.
- Nice try by Rashean Mathis, but that was a classic example of pass interference. It was interesting how he maneuvered his way 103 yards down the field in close minute's time, or so it seemed.
- A lot more Jeremy Ross would be a good thing for the Lions.

My column. Michigan not only punching bag, but punch line for Mark Dantonio and MSU football:
