Lions Played Santa Claus

It’s the holiday season in case you haven’t figured that out yet and boy, the Lions were sure in the giving mood.

It was as if the Lions were Santa Claus the way they handed out presents. Five turnovers by the Lions — five! — and none bigger than the one sparked by the immortal Kelcie McCray — who? — when he drilled Calvin Johnson on the three-yard line, forcing Johnson to cough up the ball late in the game which sent the Bucs into the glorious victory formation.

Still, it was a nailbiter. Ryan Lindell should not be allowed on the Bucs charter flight returning from Detroit tonight. If you kicked in high school or played college soccer, please e-mail your highlights video to the Bucs pronto.

The Bucs blocked a punt late and, thanks in part to Lindell, came up empty-handed.

The Bucs picked up a mysterious fumble by Kris Durham (what was the point spread?), and thanks to a stupid sack gifted by Glennon and another Lindell miss, again, the Bucs came up empty-handed.

It was as if the Bucs tried to return all the gifts the Lions offered and were rebuffed and told to go home because they didn’t have a receipt.

All those injuries to the Bucs defense, and all the turnovers by the Lions, yet the Bucs still had to sweat out a win. Well, Joe will take being lucky over being good any day.

Nice job Bucs. Except for you, Mr. Lindell. Joe never wants to see you wearing pewter and red again. Coal in your sock for you!

    Joe…we were fortunate that things went our way in some of those situations. But when guys are playing and hitting hard, you sometimes make your own “luck”.

    This looked to me like a game that nobody wanted to win. Did anybody besides me feel like you were watching a High School football game?

    I think the Bucs have close to a winning percentage in games against the Lions, back to both teams being in the NFC north. Possibly the Bucs only have one team they have beat more than lost too, the Bills. Throwing a TD for 8 games straight as a rookie is an awesome feat.

    Certainly agree on the field goal kicker, if he had made those 2 this game would have been iced. Don’t know if they will look for another one now or not. The defense won this game with the takeaways and pic 6 without which we would have lost but this is a team sport and sometimes the defense has to pick up the slack if the offense is having problems and vice versa but no matter how you slice it, a win is a win.
