DETROIT, MI-(YJM) THANKSGIVING DAY IN THE MOTOR CITY HASN’T BEEN THE BEST TIME IN LATELY, EVERY YEAR THE DETROIT LIONS ARE TELEVISED ACROSS THE COUNTRY FOR A HOME GAME TRADITION, AND EVERY YEAR THEY LOSE; THIS YEARS OPPONENT THE BEARS OF CHICAGO, AND OOH WHAT A DIFFERENCE THESE TWO TEAMS HAS BECOME. REMEMBER BACK JUST 3 WEEKS AGO WHEN THEY PLAYED IN THE WINDY CITY THE BEARS WAS 4-5 AND WAS LOOKING TO BE OUT OF THE RACE FOR THE NORTH DIVISION AND THE LIONS 3-5-1 HAD A POTENTIAL TO BE THERE CLOSE TO THE PACKS AND VIKES FOR THE RACE FOR THE NORTH. WITH DETROIT QB MATTHEW STAFFORD SCRATCHED LATE WITH A BAD BACK REPLACED BY 2ND YEAR QB JEFF DRISKEL AND LIONS FANS STILL DIDN’T THINK CHICAGO QB MITCHELL TRUBISKY DID HAVE A CHANCE TO BEAT THEIR TEAM. NOT ONLY CHICAGO BEAT DETROIT 20-13 BUT TRUBISKY LIT THEM UP FOR 16/23 173 YDS 3TDS NOT BAD FOR A QB THAT WAS STRUGGLING THIS SEASON.

NOW WE COME FULL CIRCLE; THE REMATCH DETROIT LOSERS OF 4 STRAIGHT GAMES NEEDS THIS WIN TO KEEP WHATEVER HOPE THEY HAVE ON MAKING ANY KIND OF RUN FOR ANYTHING AND HAVE THE FANS BELIEVE THAT MARTHA FORD DIDN’T MAKE A MISTAKE ON OUSTING CALDWELL FOR PATRICA. DETROIT WHO HAS LED QUARTERS IN THEIR GAMES FOR MOST OF THE SEASON FAILED AT IT EVERY TIME AND IN THE END LOSE GAMES MAKING THE FANS UPSET AND THEY WANT PATRICA OUT AS HEAD COACH IN HIS SECOND SEASON. SO WITH DETROIT HOST THIS GAME AND WITH THE 3RD STRINGER IN QB DAVID BLOUGH IN PLACE OF JEFF DRISKEL DETROIT LED THROUGHOUT THE GAME UNTIL QB MITCHELL TRUBISKY WORKED A MIRACLE IN THE 3RD DOWN 17-10 ON A 18YD TD TO JESPER HORSTED TYING THE GAME 17-17, DETROIT REGAINED THE LEAD ON A K MATT PRATTER FOR 24 YDS 20-17 LIONS BUT ONCE AGAIN DETROIT DEFENSE WITH ALLOWING BIG PLAYS FOR CHICAGO SET UP GAME WINNING DRIVE AND CAPPED IT OFF A 3YD TD TO DAVID MONTGOMERY WITH UNDER 5 MINUTES TO GO GIVING CHICAGO A COME FROM BEHIND 24-20 WIN. QB MITCHELL TRUBISKY: 29/38 338YDS 3TDS 1INT QB DAVID BLOUGH: 22/38 280YDS 2TDS 1INT IN HIS DEBUT. WITH THIS LOSS DETROIT FELL TO 3-8-1 OFFICIALLY ELIMINATED FROM WINNING THE NORTH DIVISION TITLE AND THE POST SEASON FOR THE 26TH STRAIGHT YEAR (LONGEST DROUGHT IN THE NFL), LAST TIME THEY WON 1993 WHEN IT WAS CALLED THE CENTRAL DIVISION.

SO IS IT TIME FOR MARTHA FORD TO MAKE A CHOICE… IS IT BE LOYAL TO KEEP RUNNING THE ORGANIZATION INTO THE GROUND LIKE HER LATE HUSBAND HENRY CLAY FORD?….OR….BE LOYAL TO THE FAN AND MAKE CHANGES SOON? REMEMBER WHEN SHE TOOK OVER SHE ADMITTED THAT SHE DOESN’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT RUNNING A FOOTBALL TEAM BUT GM BOB QUINN DOES AND WE NOW SEE, NOT HER FAULT BUT THE FANS DISAGREE AND THEIR VOICING OUT LOUD THIS IS OTHER LOST SEASON FOR THE DETROIT LIONS AND IF THINGS DON’T CHANGE GOING IN NEXT SEASON, PLEASE MRS. FORD; FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR FRANCHISE, THE CITY, PLAYERS, AND FANS….. EITHER SELL THE TEAM OR GET NEW PERSONAL IN PLACE TO HELP YOU.
