With Arrowhead packed with fans Detroit out battled the Chiefs last night and they looked finely tuned in doing so. This was not a shock to several media jocks. 

Didn't shock me at all. Before the season started which I posted in here, I have the Lions winning their Division and winning the NFC. Last night, I did pick the Chiefs because it was their home opener but even had the Lions lost last night, they still would have been ok. Their win last night just proves what I have been saying about them all along homer simpson GIF

Almost everyone has the Lions winning the division with only a few saying the Bears are a question right now.

I wouldn't call that fine-tuned...

 

A finely tuned win would be a team beating up the opponent in all aspects.

 

Lions fought well and utilized their chances, showed that they are hungry for wins and coached very well.

 

It took lot of drops and a careless drop-and-pick6 to win by 1 point.

 

As this game proved, anyone can win on any day. Same for Lions on another day too.

 

I don't get the hype... I think hype for Lions is because people think Fields isn't good and Jordan Love will not be good enough and Vikings won't be having the great number of lucky wins like last year

The chiefs just dont lose to anyone really unless they make mistakes on offense.  I thought the lions looked good and may be a top 10 team this year.

 

We saw a bad colts team beat them last year because they made mistake after mistake.  They may have overlooked the game.

One thing they got in their favour was lot of referee help for their OL, and thus their pass protection, which - for a change - even national media are running headlines saying so, which usually is confined to the opposing team's fan forums.

 

Chiefs must need to worry if that help also is cut off, with their poor run game.. they must be eagerly awaiting on the status of Kelce.

The Lions won and played a good game. But let’s be real here, the Lions won because Kelce was out and Kadarius Toney had receiving yard, -1 rushing yard and 4 dropped passes one of which turned into a pick-6. Also Skyy Moore had a bad game as well. haha
 

I was rooting for the Lions but the Chiefs are a better team.

This game and probably this season going forward is the lions pinnacle. They will most likely go back to their losing, dysfunctional ways sooner than later. 

Unfortunately, I think we're stuck seeing KC, Reed, McHolmes, and Jake from state farm for the foreseeable future.

    • I just thought I would take this opportunity to brag a bit about the fact that I had the opportunity to chat with Peyton at the Masters last week for about 5 minutes.  Truly a bucket list experience and I must say, he has the Southern Hospitality that one might expect but wow- did not expect to run into him and it was quite the experience.  It just had to be the one place left on earth where cell phones are banned, so no picture opportunity unfortunately.   I told Peyton that my first Colts experience was riding to Buffalo in a blizzard when the Colts were 14-0 and they benched him only to lose that game. I said thanks for my first Colts experience being one where he was riding the pine.  He laughed, apologized to me and said that if it was up to him he would have been checking down in that snow storm for 4 quarters.  He thanked me for the support, and was asking me a bit about myself, where I am from, etc.  Quite the gentleman! I think it was obligatory for him to be nice to patrons while he was wearing his Green Jacket, but none the less....a great experience meeting a childhood hero. Lynn Swann walked up to us while we were talking and shook Peyton's hand.  I joked that now was the perfect time for a 10 yard slant- and then slid into the bushes like Homer Simpson with humility.    Unforgettable experience everyone!   Would love to hear some of your Peyton stories from over the years, since it is a bit of a slow time of year before the draft! Let it fly Colts fans  
    • I agree.  I think this is another one of those over-hyped QB classes that will probably never perform to the level of the hype. But -- teams still need a quarterback.  And will convince themselves that that must take one of these quarterbacks.  That it's the only solution to their problem.  If I was forced to choose, I would probably go with Heisman winner Jayden Daniels.  I'm concerned that Caleb Williams may have some personality issues to go with his lack of measurables, even though he shows strong ability to improvise.  Drake Maye has the measurables, but I have questions regarding the level of opposition playing at UNC.  It's not the same as playing the equivalent of the Crimson Tide every single week.  JJ McCarthy is "good".  And he's been successful.  He led his team to a BCS championship.  And?  I see him in the same mold as AJ McCarron.  Supremely successful in college, but not good enough to be The Guy in the pros.
    • Right. KC was also a perennial playoff team prior to Mahomes taking over. The Colts are a fringe playoff team at best, until we see if AR can lift the roster.    And to your point, Veach took over the summer before Mahomes’ rookie year. Hard to compare how KC’s FO approach with Dorsey at GM (for several years) vs. when Veach took over. It seems like Ballard has been more like Dorsey and Veach might just operate differently from both of them.    If Ballard wanted to follow the Veach KC model, he sure waited a long time to do it once Luck retired. 
    • DeFo was an aggressive move.   But I wouldn’t classify Wentz or Ryan as aggressive moves. Getting Stafford would have been an aggressive move at QB. Wentz was cheaper and PHI was looking to dump him. They didn’t even budge from their initial offer to PHI  And Ryan sort of fell in their laps after they dumped Wentz. 
    • I think most important option is missing in the poll : No One.   I think it's a fairly average QB class that it's okay to not like anybody enough to draft him. There's no one QB that Wows you with their pocket passing Caliber or pure athletic traits or good combination of both. It's like a tweener class of all those abilities, having lop-sided combination of above said skills.    And, this poll, rather than forcing to pick one QB, needed that extra option to express staying away from this QB class.
