What’s up home skillets?? It’s your girl again, and I know it’s been a while. Now that summer is OVER, and the kids are back to school, I am BACK BABY!! It’s football season, and you know I must talk about The Detroit Lions. The last article I wrote was about how the Lions are purring, instead of roaring. I was just about to write a positive article when they beat the New England Patriots. I was like yes, yes, yes, not like having an orgasm yes, but I was excited that the Lions won. However, it hit me that in my opinion, the Lions won, because Matt Patricia used to be part of the New England Patriots. Who would know more about how to beat your old team better than the old defensive coordinator? I mean come on home skillets, the guy worked for the New England Patriots. So, what did you expect?
Matt served as an assistant coach and defensive coordinator, and with that on his resume, they betta had won! I’m just saying! I know a lot of fans were rejoicing on social media, cheering in the stadium, eating and drinking beer at the tailgate, hugging and loving each other, singing ebony and ivory, and just showing love for the game. I know I was in the spirit of a lion as well, but all that excitement went with me to the bathroom, and I flushed it all down the toilet. You know why? The reason is the Lions played the Oakland Raiders, and the New York Giants the following week. In the words of Drake, they lost “back-to-back”. Currently, the Lions are 1-3. Maybe they should change their name to “loser’s” instead of “Lions.” Why not? They have the same number of letters and they start with the letter L. Hey, I think I’m on to something. I should tell the Ford’s about my suggestion, but they are already embarrassed. So, why add salt to their existing wound.
I hate to even add more salt. Did you know that Jim Caldwell, former Detroit Lions coach, is now teaming up with Vince McMahon to reboot the XFL football team for 2020? I don’t know if you remembered, but basically it was a football franchise team made up of athletes that couldn’t cut it in the NFL and other leagues. They had muscle, physical strength, and could still play the game. They did not make a lot of money either, unlike some of the heavy hitters in the NFL, but at least they got to “still” do something that they enjoyed doing. However, it only lasted the year that the season started. The XFL football franchise is trying to “get their groove back” or should I say, “Make Football Great Again” for the Lions anyway. Maybe XFL can bring some excitement on the days that the Detroit Lions play. Ok, I am done with the shade, not quite. Did you also know that Jim Caldwell was one of the best coaches that the Detroit Lions has had since I was born? Without telling my age, but since the early 70’s. I know the Ford’s wanted to get to the Superbowl, but hell Jim Caldwell took them to the playoffs!
I don’t know if this new coach Matt Patricia is going to get the Lions to the playoff’s let alone a Superbowl. I know it’s his first year, I guess I should cut him some slack. Huh? Nope! Look at his resume, and then holla back at me. I am sorry Detroit fans, but 1-3 is not impressive considering Matt’s experience being a part of a ” winning team” that won playoffs, and later won Superbowl’s. Do you like the way I put the “s“, like I put the re”s”pek on that! I got mad love for teams that play together and win together. Hopefully, the Detroit Lions should have some type of motto to follow, because there is no “I” in team. Golden Tate can’t do it all, and the quarterback Matt Stafford needs to be protected. I think the Detroit Lions are lacking in “offense” and nobody can seem to protect the quarterback! If the Lions can stay away from Lafayette Coney Island and Krispy Crème doughnuts, maybe, just maybe, they can have enough cardio and strength to protect him. I’m just saying!
Well, while Jim Caldwell is “living his best life.” You can check out the Detroit Lions tomorrow, Sunday on Fox 2 Detroit, playing against the Green Bay Packers at 1:00 pm in Detroit. For more highlights and schedules, you can go to their website at www.detroitlions.com.
