In what was a mix of Packers being bad and the Lions being good, one wondered what kind of dark wizardry was at work. True, the Packers had, for the most part, been struggling a bit lately after starting the season 6-0, losing three of their last four heading into last night’s game. Also true is the fact that the Lions, not too long ago, were in a heated competition with San Diego for the first overall pick in next year’s draft, but have surged a bit from worst in the league to a pretty solid below-average team. So while the Lions taking a 17-0 lead at halftime was a bit surprising, one could only help but wonder, how were the Lions going to Browns this up? Well, one thing’s certain… they sure nailed it. In what was a last-ditch hail mary (shown above), Aaron Rodgers was inexorably able to hit Richard Rodgers in the end zone to win the game. I’m calling it: that is the most Lions thing ever. EVER. If something can top that, I’m not sure the world would be ready for it…

Ameer Abdullah – 13 CAR, 67 YDS. I’m guessing “Hey, Baby, I’ll hold you to under 70 yards rushing” is not a good pickup line. But at the same time, think what you could do with 70 yards!

Randall Cobb – 4 REC, 29 YDS. Dix blocking your Cobb? Call 1-800-HAHA!

Calvin Johnson – 3 REC, 44 YDS, 1 TD. Jim Bob Cooter Lions: Nothing’s really changed. Except we try to ignore Calvin Johnson even more.

Eddie Lacy – 5 CAR, 4 YDS and 1 REC, -3 YDS. Is Lacy just the fatter version of Trent Richardson? True, Lacy has been relevant for a lot longer. But finding a good balance between functionally fat and orca fat seems to be an issue for him. But, I will give him credit, Lacy’s ball security issues have been a thing of the past ever since the coaches convinced him the football was full of gravy…

Richard Rodgers – 8 REC, 146 YDS, 1 TD. That’s right Jordy Nelson, this is all your stupid knee’s fault.

Matthew Stafford – 23/25, 220 YDS, 2 TD. Everybody knows the best way to up your tuna salad game is to add Dom Capers!

Final Thought

LOL, seriously, how the f*ck do you let that happen…

    My favorite part of that play is the Lions DB’s guarding the sideline to keep a receiver from making a catch and getting out of bounds. THERE’S NO TIME ON THE CLOCK.

      @Clyde Prompto: Yeah, they wouldn’t have come in handy at all.

    Jay,
    Fantasy aside, it’s ridiculous what they’re doing to Lacy. Back to back 100 yard games and then they pull this crap? What is going on? Didn’t seem like he was hurt last night so did he just really tick somebody on the coaching staff off? This is kind of bizarre.

      @Allan: I’m surprised that McCarthy isn’t in charge of this offense. No, I’m actually surprised he found someone worse than him…

    I lost Gronk and have to pick up a replacement this week. Looks like that will be Tamme, but I need to drop someone first. I’ve clinched a playoff spot, so which of these two guys would you drop? Matt Jones or Jay Ajayi?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Benny: I think Jones is the drop. I think Ajayi will figure more into the Dolphins gameplan.

  4. Nick says:

    well at least that game was a success fantasy wise…going up against GB, Riddick & Cobb, great start to the week & I have not had a player go yet!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Nick: Awesome! Good luck man, you’ve been working hard on that team all year…

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Dude, its do or die. If I win out these last 2 games, I would probably make playoffs. If not, I’m done for!!

        With that said, would you consider slotting in Spencer Ware at flex (standard league) over DeSean Jackson? I also have Stevie J as my WR3 & could swap him out too if that sounds enticing…

        I really like Spencer but splitting carries is never a good thing…KC has been running the rock very well but injuries are definitely a concern for KC…

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Nick: Yeah, I think DeSean is an interesting play against the Cowboys. Ware isn’t quite to that level for me at the moment.

          And that sounds tight man, nervous for ya.

          • Nick says:
            (link)

            @Jay: What about pulling Stevie J for Ware? Any interest?

            • Jay

              @Nick: Eh, I kinda like Johnson this week. I think it’s close, but would rather go Johnson here.

    Salty vikings fan here… that was NOT a facemask! That penalty shouldnt have allowed that extra play!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Bryce Krispie Treats: Yeah, here’s the replay in slomo for those who don’t know what you’re talking about. Looks like a not facemask to me…

    in dynasty standard, parker, k.wright or hold d.adams?

  7. Clint says:

    As a Packer fan, all I can say is ‘Lions gonna Lion.’ Packers should have lost that game and I didn’t see anything major to indicate the offensive turnaround’s gonna happen so I’ll treat this as a nice moment & be prepared for a possible 0-4 finish if this doesn’t turn into some magical 2010-like leaping off point for them to galvanize & run the table from here.

    Couple things, though:
    1) If the facemask WASN’T a facemask, how did Rodgers’ helmet turn around on his head? Did he magically stop time & turn it with his shoulder when he hit the ground the camera didn’t see? Perhaps his real name’s Nathan & he’s been raised by Hiro but we never knew it, leaving Olivia Munn Katana Girl?

    2) News regarding Lacy doesn’t sound good. Locker reports say he’s been lackadaisical from time to time since he arrived in Green Bay & MM said he ‘didn’t have a good week’ which indicates to me he landed in the doghouse, thus the essential benching. I hope he gets the message & turns into a Beast but he basically said today when asked about it ‘I don’t feel I should talk about it. Obviously something’s going on.’ Do NOT count on him for your fantasy team, folks.

    I loved the Seahawk references by Rodgers in the quick interview after the game & Golden Tate’s shocked quotes afterward. Karma man, karma.

      @Clint: They are definitely not as strong as the beginning of the season, and the Lacy news isn’t really a shocker. There’s enough there though, that’s for sure.

      I put an upclose shot of it above. To be honest, I think it wasn’t a facemask, but, to watch that in real time, I would have called it just the same. His head jerks, the defenders hands are right there, I doubt anyone could pick out the subtly of that play in real time.

      Yeah, and I think Lacy is done for the year.

  8. Rice says:

    With Hankerson done for the season…. would you start Tamme over Barnage this week?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Rice: I’m fine with it, sure.

    been try8ing to pin down a upside TE for the stretch run.. have martellus, Julius and Vernon rostered.

    would you drop Vernon for ASJ (just cleared to start practicing in full and will play this sunday) as a roll of the dice?

    I know its a TE but the guy DID have a big game week 1, then we never heard from him again..

    thanks.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @thethrill: Yeah, for purely upside, I’m leaning ASJ over Vernon at the moment.

  10. Side dish says:
    (link)

    I’m in a half point ppr . My roster consists of :
    Qb Newton
    Rb – ap, Ingram
    Wr – Aj green, Cobb
    Te – Jordan reed
    Flex (2) – deangelo Williams, David Johnson
    Bench – hurns, gates , Matt ryan, amendola, Buck Allen

    2 questions
    1) who would you start in the two flex positions ?
    2) would you drop hurns or ryan for chandler, Melvin Gordon, or moncrief?

    Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Side dish: 1- I’d go Williams and Ryan. I’d hold on the second one.

    Is cutler enough of an upgrade on Brees and Wilson to make it worth cutting Wilson or Blue (rb4 on 2rb PPR) ?
    Don’t need a win this week for playoffs, but must win to have shot at a week 14 bye.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @The imp: I don’t think so, no. I think Cutler for Wilson is close, but I’d rather have Wilson.

  12. Crapshoot Kershaw says:
    (link)

    wow, they really need to go back to those scab refs they had from a couple of years ago, at least until refs union installs some sort of penalization system for refs that do calls like that one from above that completely decided the game to the wrong team. They have replay, multiple somebodies were either paid off or are just inept. Nobody that makes that call should be employed as a ref.

    anyhoo, dynasty PPR, keep hankerson (doesn’t matter about this week at all), or grab one of inman/s.roberts/k.martin/givens/jj nelson/coleman?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Crapshoot Kershaw: I’d rather go with Inman there. Martin is close though.
