And for those that blame what looks like its going to be a loss, we were sucking long before Cook went out. The Oline isnt that great, and Case is no hero. We can win games against bad teams, so far, not against good teams.

Nothing is going our way, even Loche is beating us. We lost the best thing that happened to this team. Not much hope.

I disagree, Cook was getting stronger in the run game. And with the exception of that gimmick play , we were doing decent and Case was establishing his comfort behind the line.

Now with cook out Case is reestablishing.

Even with Cook out, the Vikings are still a better team. They're just not executing. Don't like the game plan at all on offense. They are passing way too much, especially with the injuries at LB on the other team. I really believe if the viking ran more early on , cook would still be playing

Love how the announcers spout out stats after admitting the refs missed 2 blatant PI calls. And how the Lions are playing great defense.
