Skins Trail 7-3 after One

Well, it certainly feels like the Rams game:

Inability to finish a drive (pretty horrid sequence of three plays on reaching the Lions' goal line);

Turnovers - Pass pro is looking rough and Stephon Heyer is getting exposed some. Campbell was pummeled on that sack and fumble;

Bad penalties - Leigh Torrence's third-down defensive holding penalty (how can you hold and still have the WR wide open?? If you're gonna hold, then hold properly, for goodness sake) kept the Lions scoring drive alive.

Hence a 7-3 deficit. They need to clean it up here and get in the end zone this quarter.

When your coach goes postal on your star RB, there's a big problem.

We need a TO! C'mon defense

lets see if it worked before we condemn the coach for blasting CP there. No clue what he said exactly.

Posted by: alex35332 | October 26, 2008 1:49 PM | Report abuse

This offense needs to step the hell up and start getting more aggressive.

Posted by: ga8085 | October 26, 2008 1:49 PM | Report abuse

Hopefully it just fires on 26 even more... But yeah he went with Alexander WAY too early.. wtf.

I can't believe some of you. You guys only have faith in the team when they are in front.

What a team! Can't even keep a lead against an 0-6 team. The Synder-Cerrato curse is alive and well...

OMG...Zorn, our offense isn't good enough to be creative. Give the ball to #26 and stop thinking so hard.

This is ridiculous. At some point these aren't trap games anymore.

Posted by: messykat | October 26, 2008 1:52 PM | Report abuse

We had faith in this team when it was losing for 16 years...

We need to throw throw throw...their corners are bad..run portis after the 1st half..

Posted by: jimboy435 | October 26, 2008 1:53 PM | Report abuse

I'm with JM220 on this one-- way too early to start loading the shotgun. Only down by a touchdown, some early mistakes hurt, but plenty of time to turn it around. Keep cool, my babies.

Also, I'm listening on the radio-- what happened with Zorn and Portis?

Posted by: TDawg1 | October 26, 2008 1:53 PM | Report abuse

980 totally sucks!

Posted by: alex35332 | October 26, 2008 1:54 PM | Report abuse

I'm not "Down" on the team, but we need to take care of business today... we need to put the Lions away early and deep in order to get ready for the Steelers next week. Good teams don't let 0-6 teams hang with them long in a game, and don't frigging let them take a 10-3 lead.

Zorn needs to get agressive for a little while, let the WR and Cooley go, and then start force feeding Portis down their throat. And yeah, it's not a good sign that Zorn is in Portis's face earlier.

what happened with zorn and portis??

Posted by: TDawg1 | October 26, 2008 1:56 PM | Report abuse

Let's start passing on first down.

Posted by: ga8085 | October 26, 2008 1:56 PM | Report abuse

It's not about being down on the team. It's about facing an opponent who is in the bottom 3 in both rushing and passing DEF.

Even a mediocre team offense should be having a field day.

We play down to our opponents. We've been doing it all season.

So yah, I'm annoyed.

'sawright; coaches and players yell at each other on the sidelines all the time. This is football; this ain't no friggin encounter group!

Since the blowup at Portis, Portis only has about 2 yard a carry.
