Much of the hype for the Lions week 2 matchup against the Cardinals centers around a few common themes.  Everyone wants to see if Calvin Johnson can replicate his stat line from last season against an improved Patrick Peterson.  Can Reggie Bush follow up his strong first outing?  Will the Lions get revenge for their embarrassing defeat at the hands of an inferior Arizona team in 2012?  Once again I’m going to look a little deeper, however, to find some of the matches you might not be looking for.  The under the radar battles that will be happening tomorrow afternoon that could mean the difference between a win or a loss in hostile territory.  (more…)

My overwhelming reaction to the game is that I want to vomit. Against a team that had lost 9 in a row and hadn’t scored more than one offensive touchdown in a game since September, the Lions laid a massive egg.
