Lions prepared for invasion of Bears fans
Perhaps the oddest admission after the Lions lost 24-20 to the Bears on Sunday, was that the Lions were prepared to play in a stadium at least half full of Chicago Bears fans. And it was Ford Field, their home.
Quarterback Drew Stanton said they were ready to go to the silent count if necessary. That proves one thing, coach Jim Schwartz does prepare with every detail in mind.
Like one of my Twitter followers said, he was thankful the game sold out, even if many of them were Bears fans, because that way the game was televised locally.
It could be the same thing this Sunday when the Packers come into Ford Field. Of course, it’s a longer drive from Green Bay than Chicago. But it’s tougher to get a ticket to Lambeau than to Soldier Field.
