I REALLY want to know how the Lions got away with their OLine being illegal pretty much all day though. I mean every play and it was OBVIOUS

Awkward wording makes the post confusing. More importantly, what exactly where they doing illegally?

Guards were lining up deep...

Gerald McCoy - "The one thing I can say is how those guards were sitting," McCoy said. "As deep as they were sitting, I don't think that was legal. I really don't. We said something to the refs. They just let it go. But we said, 'Hey, we have to play with the conditions we are in and keep playing.'

Anyone know where we can see the rules?

a good (competent) coaching staff would have brought it to the official's attention during the game, not on the Monday morning following the game

I guess my question would be what would make anyone think the worst pass rushing defensive line in 2010 would have done anything differently if Detroit was lined up right?

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Morgan, they did bring it to their attention. The officials just didn't care.

Well see it that It isn't 2010. Nor did they do the same thing when we played them last year. Means they lined up farther back to neutralize the rush because they didn't have the athletic ability to counter if they didn't have that advantage

Maybe our o-line should try this since the refs dont seem to care.......

The Lions were clearly the better team last Sunday, no doubt about that. My only question is why it is apparently legal for the Lions to mug Mike Williams in the end zone?

There were some calls, or nocalls i did react to. Arron Berry or however you spell his name was imo a bit too physical. He held Mike Williams arms when jumping for the ball.

I dont remeber their o line being a problem, but i guess you dont focus on that during a game.

Never the less, I dont think we lost the game because of the refs but it didnt help.

Seriously?  This is common in the NFL and the refs do let it go for the most part.

Occasionally, they'll call an OT for being too far off the ball but it's rare.

What makes anyone think it was illegal? Different does not equal illegal.

Happy and Peppy and Bursting with love.
