A big week for development
This weeks task for the Lions largely involves correcting mistakes they made in the 45-27 loss at New Orleans on Sunday. Its a huge week in the development of this team. They need to correct, they need to stay confident and, at the same time, prepare for Adrian Peterson, Brett Favre and the Vikings.
While it was the 18th straight loss, in better perspective it was the first loss for this bunch. The players, like linebacker Larry Foote, seem confident it can be turned around.
A couple of those big plays we can correct that, those are mental errors. Bottom line, in is this league thats how you lose, mental errors. The least amount of mistakes you make increases your chances of winning, Foote said.
