Another bad start

Lions center Dominic Raiola was on a roll following the 31-24 loss to Arizona. The Lions were down 17-0 at the half. That’s amazing in itself because it could have been much worse. They came up a touchdown short at the end but showed more determination in the second half.

“We came in here (at halftime), people were getting cussed out, everybody was (ticked) off, nobody was happy about that first half. I said, 'Let’s go do something we never did, let’s finish a game,'’’ Raiola said.

“Close doesn’t help. I don’t think anybody out there thought we could come back. We’ve got to get used to not just coming back, but being in those games form the beginning,’’ he added.

That pretty much says it.

Despite their losing ways,I can't tell you how excited I was when I found out that they scored to tie 17-17. That just goes to show you that there still exists hope, that, yes, they will get better. Keep the faith Dominic, you still have some supporters.
