Another disappointing Thanksgiving in Detroit. 8 straight losses for the LIons on Turkey Day. The thing is, this year was supposed to be different. A 7-3 start and in playoff position, the Lions were expected to challenge the Green Bay Packers and give the defending Super Bowl Champions a stiff challenge. Alas it was not to be.

The Packers bested the Lions 27-15 to run their record to 11-0 and retain total control of the NFC North. The Lions showed they’re not ready for the big time yet by committing numerous dumb penalties and making poor decisions. The worst being DT Ndamukong Suh being ejected in the third quarter after stomping on Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith.

Suh claimed in the post game news conference that he was stepping away from Dietrich-Smith and did not intentionally stomp on him. I don’t believe him. I love Ndamukong Suh but he needs to learn to control his emotions. His lack of discipline is hurting the Lions. Suh should be suspended for his actions and don’t be surprised if the league punishes him for this.

Meanwhile the Packers calmly took everything in stride by turning Lions mistakes into points and ran away with this game. Aaron Rodgers is a leading candidate for NFL MVP and he showed why again today. Rodgers completed 22 out of 33 pass attempts for 307 yards and 2 touchdowns. Rodgers did an excellent job of spreading the football around as 9 different Packers had at least one catch.

Matthew Stafford had OK numbers, completing 32 out of 45 for 276 yards and a touchdown. But 3 interceptions really hurt Stafford as the Packers scored 17 points of those interceptions.

The Lions schedule doesn’t get any easier as a trip to New Orleans to face a dangerous Saints team is next. With the Packers out of reach and Chicago and Atlanta battling the Lions for wildcard spots, the Lions need to regain their composure, and find their game from earlier in the season when they were 5-0.

    Man the first qtr looked like it was going to be a great game. Things changed no doubt, what a collapse. I feel bd for lions fans. There a up and up and down team no doubt. As far as Suh he should be suspended 2-3 games maybe more!

    There’s two things Lions’ fans should be concerned about. First, this “punk” mentality the team has seems to come from the top down. Don’t forget it was the coach who wanted to get into it with Jim Harbaugh a few weeks ago. Can’t expect the team to be disciplined if the coach isn’t.

    Secondly, the stuff with Suh is going to really cost him at some point. If this keeps up, one of these days a couple of O-lineman are going to exact some “street justice,” after which Suh will be just another guy on the injured reserve list.
