Blogs > Lions Lowdown

One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


Would Lions be 3-1 if The Catch by Calvin had been ruled a touchdown?

One of my neighbors thinks if The Catch by Calvin Johnson in the opener at Chicago had been ruled a touchdown that the Lions would be 3-1, and maybe 4-0, now instead of 0-4.

First thought was that he’s crazy. But on further review perhaps he is right. I’m not buying 4-0, but maybe 3-1.

In the four losses the Lions have lost by a combined 24 points. Fourteen of those were in the loss to the Vikings which means they lost three games by a total of 10 points.

Don’t tell me a loss is a loss. It isn’t.

Last season in the first four losses, the Lions had lost by a combined point total of 61 points.

Last year at Lambeau Field, in the sixth game of the season, the Lions were smoked 26-0. On Sunday they lost 28-26 at Lambeau.

Face it, this is a different team even if you just measure by points on the scoreboard.

Oh, one more thing. When will we ever quit mentioning The Catch? Not for a long, long time.
