Revenge of the Martz!

Tomorrow, the Lions battle the San Francisco 49ers, whose offense is led by rejuvenated ex-Lion scrub qb J.T. O’Sullivan, most known most for his extremely Irish sounding name and his offensive coordinator, the mad scientist Mike Martz whose fear of running the ball often creates gaudy, yet empty, passing statistics, worn-out defenses, and losses.

Waking up at 9 am to get to the bar to watch football at 10 am is not the most enjoyable experience, but tomorrow the Lions have blessed me with a 1:00 pm pacific time start.  Will the Emperor (Martz) and his protege Darth (O’Sullivan) be responsible for another embarrassing road loss for the hapless Lions?  Will they start off another game being down 21-0?  How many sacks and interceptions will Kitna amass?  The Lions are an entertaining team always on the threshold of combustion.  Always expect failure.  Embrace mediocrity.

If Martz was smart he would run Frank Gore at the Lions’ ineffective tackling.  The secondary is very easy to attack, so O’Sullivan should accumulate over 300 yards.  As long as it is entertaining, the Lions have done their job.

The Victory Song of the Detroit Lions

Hail the colors Blue and Silver let them wave.
Sing their song and cheer the Gridiron Heroes brave,
Fighting for fame, winning the game,
Dashing to victory as they go.

Forward down the field,
A charging team that will not yield.
And when the Blue and Silver wave,
Stand and cheer the brave.
Rah, Rah, Rah.
Go hard, win the game.
With honor you will keep your fame.
Down the field and gain,
A Lion victory!
