Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears Recap: What Just Happened?


I am not going to waste any time this week. The Detroit Lions gave the Chicago Bears a 23-6 lead and eventually lost the game 27–23. As always, I have an idea on this game. These are the thoughts.

I’m so tired of it

Not only do I cover this team as a job, I am clearly a fan. I care about sports. I set aside my Sunday hours to take notes and watch the game in hopes that I would be happy at the end of the day. Instead all I’m getting is laying on my living room floor watching my heartbeat speed on my Fitbit and having a terrible anxiety attack, which I still write about Because the Lions can’t just go out and win a game. I’m sick of this. I know you are too. Something needs to be made here. Which brings me to my next point.

Matt Patricia has to go

Yes, maybe it is brought as soon as possible, but it needs to happen. Forget the make-or-break thing and forget whoever is trying to make this team, rip it like a band-aid and get it. The Lions now have the same problems they had in 2020, which they had in 2018. They get a lead and immediately turn off the gas and do whatever they have to do to get away. They almost completely repeated their Week 1 game from 2019, only this time they lost.

Then they “Dagger Time?” Are nervous to talk about. The only thing that needs to get daggers is the Matt Patricia era. It needs to end now and maybe they can save some this season. It is clear now that these smart people have not learned a single thing because they are here.

Jamie collins senior

Look, I don’t care how you want to rationalize it. You could say that the ref leaned in and flopped or you could say that it was a bit too much. It does not matter. You do not touch the officer. Especially if you are one of the leaders of this team. You embarrassed yourself, and you embarrassed Lions fans. Maybe I’m overreacting, but I just don’t care for it.

Congratulations again, Lions. You are the team that Bears fans think Trubisky is good again

They do this every year. Trubisky is a terrific quarterback and his poor throw on Sunday proved that. But, still, the Lions are there, ready and willing to help Trubisky improve his image in Chicago. They’ll start hating him next week to make sure, but don’t worry Mitch when things start going bad, the Lions will be in town in December, to make sure you’ll have somewhere to go when you leave the beer A contract will be found.

Nice things i think

I think I have to put some good stuff here. So here it goes. Adrian Peterson looked good and Tony McRae made a good special team.

Don’t harp on too much swift

Look, man, I get it. I am also really mad. I understand that now blaming absolutely everything on D’Andra Swift is not to catch a clear-day, game-winning touchdown. He should inflate something for that. He chuckled in a big moment, and that’s not good.

But it is the teams’ fault for putting the child in that position. They should never have been. He took a 23-6 lead before reaching that point of the game. Just consider these things before you directly call Swift’s butts on Twitter, threaten to harm him or whatever fans are doing these days.

Take the “Dagger Time” sign below

You have not earned it. If you are not living that mantra, fans do not want to hear about it. They don’t want to buy goods from him and they don’t want to hear that either. The Lions played themselves with this catchphrase. He embarrassed himself the moment he was coined in training camp. Ford Field needs to take that sign down and maybe think about putting it back when they prove they can actually live by it. Nothing could be further from the truth.
