The Lions offense is non-existant, it's been like this all season. This week the offensive line blocked not one player. Harrington was getting pressured constantly on 3 and 5 step drops. I am not kidding. When he does get time Harrington throws to a checkdown option because the recievers aren't even trying to get open downfield. Marriucui will lose control of the team if he does not make some kind of change very soon. I'm not sure they would be better off under Garcia or Orlovsky but maybe the players will actually try under them.
As for the Panthers it was basically just a case where Delhomme kept making poor decisions and they had no running game - mostly because of the Lions defense. They were lucky to escape this game but I don't think they need to worry on offense it was a combo of bad decisions and good defense. Steve Smith is unstoppable.
The facts have no meaning.
