Detroit got robbed.

That touchdown by Forsett should have been reviewed - painfully obvious.

Damn NFL refs and their rules about challenging almost immediately while the play is in progress.

Use a little common sense, refs - the Lions fans are going to be talking about this for years as the Lions lose their 10th consecutive Thanksgiving game.

(I was hoping Houston would lose, so we have an outside shot of getting the bye during the playoffs)

GO Skins! (Next football game!) RG3 is on my FF team, and I decided to play him in Dallas instead of Peyton Manning.

1. I think we will see a rule change in the off season based on what occurred today. nt


The Lions were robbed. They now have 10 straight losses on Thanksgiving Day. At 4-7, their season is over. Very disappointing.

2. The coach is an idiot....

....and so is their best player. Karma for kicking a guy in the nuts, I guess.

3. Play to the whistle.

 

There's a reason why coaches stress that basic fundamental.

The coach also should have known that all TDs are reviewed.

I'd say they screwed themselves.

4. Texans had the ball still anyway. It's not like they blew a turnover call. They still

could have easily scored pretty quickly on that drive. It would have been hard to blow the whistle on that play because he bounced up so quickly.

I don't really get the severe penalty on a coach throwing the flag there. So what? Just ignore it. Maybe a warning and an unsportsmanlike call if a coach keeps doing that on un-reviewable plays. Not on one like that though.

5. Gym Shorts is a hot head idiot.

Remember last season when Shorts and Harbaugh got into a tussle after the Lions-49ers game, that all started when Harbaugh tried to challenge something he couldn't and Gym Shorts was screaming across the field "Know the Rules!!". Karma came back to bite ole Shortsy today.

6. Schwarz should've known the rules before throwing

the challenge flag. It's his fault that the TD counted.

7. Thought they blew it in OT when they tried to kick a FG on 3rd down.

Why not run a play to get a little closer, you're 4-6 and playing it safe?

9. That was a questionable call,

but the Lions had so many blown opportunities on offense and defense anyway. They missed the GW kick late in the game, allowed over 400 yards, and they had several turnovers.
