Pistons Back to Losing Ways

Certainly, I wasn't expecting much out of our beloved Pistons this year. I have not been disappointed at all since I honestly had no expectations of finishing outside the lottery with the team currently assembled. T-Mac wasn't exactly a signing that made me think we were going anywhere.

So...they start 0-3 and after the opener I kind of missed the next 2. They blew a game they lead by 7 with under 2 minutes left and got an 11-0 run put up on them. A game easily won, and just as easily pissed away apparently.

Hey at least the Lions won today and I got my landscape lights put in.

Calvin Says: "Welcome Back Matthew Stafford!"

I'm sure you have spent many a Sunday afternoon asking yourself why the hell Calvin isn't getting the damn ball. Maybe Stafford was asking himself the same thing because he and Calvin hooked up for 3 TDs of Stafford's 4 on the day to pull out their second win of the year against the Redskins.

Looks like the 'Skins are the only team Detroit can beat consistently. One of their wins last year came against the hapless Redskins, and only their 2nd this year came against them as well.

So...Stafford is back. Rusty as hell int he first half, and still a bit so in the 2nd, but he pulled it together and made the plays they needed when the game was on the line. Oh yeah and Calvin did too. Put on your commercial pumps and celebrate.

Suh was a monster, and looking like the easy DROY choice in the NFL this year. 2 sacks and a fumble return for a TD. Of course he looked like an idiot returning the D trying to showboat and nearly losing the ball. Starting to wonder if he doesn't have too much dumbass in him.
