Skins Down by Four at the Half

Weird, weird, weird game.

The holding penalties on Jansen hurt, and I question Zorn running just one play before the two-minute warning. I get his philosophy on not putting the other team back on the field, but this is a winless Lions team with a poor offense and defense.

I think you attack them with a no-huddle, but they still managed to overcome all the penalties and at least get a long field goal. All that standing around just seems to run counter to the tempo Zorn generally demands.

The Portis situation will be big news after the game for sure. I guess Fox reported he was pouting about playing time.

And it's time to cause a turnover or two and get in the end zone.

I just get the sense we haven't seen the last weird play of this game yet.

Not worried about it. The will come out this second half and put this thing away. Zorn should have let CP get his the first half so he could rest him the second.

The runing game is looks ugly with out CS. They are getting yardage but the lions are able to get in the backfield fast.

CP will be alright - he probably just wants a 200 yard day.

Lions D should feel it more than ours due to the amount of time they been on the field.

well we all want him going over 1000 yds.

Posted by: alex35332 | October 26, 2008 2:35 PM | Report abuse

I'd like CP to have a 200 yard, 3 TD game... but he needs to get the first TD to get three....

Heyer is better at RT than LT

Alright D, shut them down right now. 3 & out.

Let's go J Cam. Need a nice td to start this half off right on offense.

Posted by: skins1110 | October 26, 2008 2:41 PM | Report abuse

Heyer is good at pass blocking, but is still learning the running game. Or else he is not as athletic. But running game suffers with him in there. That's why JJ got his starting job back.

3 and out. Way to go, D.

Now let's take control of this game.

It does seems that way. We need the D to get a turnover and score.

I don't get why we aren't punching in... do the Lions have some magic goal line stand juice? Every time we get within the 35, they tighten way the heck up. We move great until there....

Posted by: RGMBill | October 26, 2008 2:49 PM | Report abuse

17 of 21 for JC. Of the 4 incompletes, SM caught 2 OB, Cooley dropped one, can't think of the last one. JC is really on target.

Even the lucky stuff is starting to go Lions way... it's time for us to make our own luck and get a takeaway.

Good going D. Come on CP we need you to break one and put this game away.

Can Washington score a freakin' touchdown on this coming drive?

Posted by: RedDMV | October 26, 2008 2:53 PM | Report abuse

I thought Cooley dropped two (one in mid-field, one on that viscious hit that would have gotten us 1st down at the 20) Awful return for ARE, looks like he lost 7 yards.

anyone have Suisham on their fantasy team. With this offense, he's a stud to have.

You don't ever go for two in the third quarter. Reason being in case they score a td and a fg before the game is over.

Billick just noticed he's calling him Santonio. He still keeps saying "Nemis" instead of "Nemesis".

Posted by: johnvandermyde | October 26, 2008 3:15 PM | Report abuse

Billick is addressing his "Santonio" remarks and apologizing for those who aren't getting the game. Says it's because of Santonio Holmes being in the news too much this week.

Two Lions injured on the play.
