Green Bay Packers (11) at Detroit Lions (35) 12 31 2017
They got to play indoors for their last game of the season when the temperature outside today is about 10 degrees.
A very aggressive start by the Green Bay Packers. They won the toss and decided to kick it and do an on-sides kick, which they recovered.
Detroit's Ebers (sp?) Sky Stepping after a reception was pure athleticism! It was like he sprouted wings and flew over two Packers.
GB Number 44, when the ball is in the air you always have an awareness of where it is and where it is going to be when you are on the field. You should have the mental ability to immediately determine that by a glance at its initial speed and arc. In other words you don't let it hit you in the head.
I looks like that aggressive initial attack by the Packers got the fury in the Lions going.
Time check 2:20 seconds left in the second quarter.
Hundley don't run the ball if you don't know how to hold onto it. A quaterback often wants to be brave and run the ball when the yards aren't coming. However you got to be able to hold onto that ball and not have it fumbled from you. Likely happens more when the QB runs up the center. I haven't seen anyone run through the center for a touchdown in a long time.
Hundley? The name reminds me of Hunley. The Confederate Submarine that was sank three times.
And that article there is actually more interesting than the football game.
Another interesting submarine.
What makes this all the more of a loss is that McCarthy boldly stated that he wasn't going to throw this game he wasn't that kind of guy, he was going to fight as hard as he could to win it, even though it didn't matter because the season was over.
Loved it when Matthew Stafford (sp?) tossed that touchdown ball straight up high into the fans seats back of the endzone.
