Thoughts after 3 quarters Lions, Cardinals
The Lions are hanging around again. Could it be time for another Captain Comeback routine? If so, it is getting a little old. It's one thing to be a game manager, but another to play it too close to the vest. The Lions offense has badly lacked imagination today. This is not one of Matthew Stafford's better games so far. He has all his weapons with him.
- The Lions' defense is so much better this season for a lot of reasons, not the least of it is the safety play. Glover Quin is a top-notch player, but so is James Ihedigbo. He is a far better player than I could have imagined. It was very good news for the Lions when he returned to the field after staying down for awhile with a shoulder injury. He should have held onto the potential interception, though.
- Ziggy Ansah is another Lions' player who has come to play today, but where is Suh? This would be a good time for him to impose his will on the game.
