Twas the Night Before Christmas, Lions Style

December 24th, 2012

Jeff Risdon, DLD Editor
Twas the night before Christmas and all through Ford Field
Lions fans wonder what the offseason will wield
Another poor season is nearly complete
Our preseason dreams buried in defeat

Free agency looms for plenty of players
There could be changes at so many layers
Coordinators, assistants passing the torch
Several players pushed off the porch

Calvin Johnson sets records, dominating the sport
Now Martin Mayhew must get him support
No more malcontents or selfish druggies
Get us some playmakers, we’ll give you big huggies

The defense clinkers and clatters like a rattling trash can
Poor scheme, poor awareness, hard to be a fan
But Ndamukong Suh and his partner Nick Fairley
Can strike fear in opponents, more than just barely

Leshoure and Joique Bell offer some promise
I wish I could say the same about Mike Thomas
A return man and pass rusher are high on the list
And also a new safety that hits like a fist

Matt Stafford delivers presents all over the turf
But too often he throws like he’s trying to surf
Consistent mechanics, a more steady approach
Will make Stafford a QB few who can approach

Salary cap issues are coal in the stocking
But not enough to keep us from rocking
As Bob Seger would croon “There I go, turn the page”
A good draft, smart signings can reset the stage

Next season will be filled with lots of excitement and wonder
Will the Lions rise up or be again tossed asunder?
Honolulu Blue and Silver, for you we still cheer
In faint hope a playoff win will soon be near

We beg you, Dear Santa, for the arrow pointing up
Our loyalty deserves it, please come fill our cup
The pieces are in place to be really great
Oh Dear Santa please don’t make us wait!

Merry Christmas from!
