I'm hoping the Lions' win over Montreal last week [38-17] was not an anomaly or something to be savored for the balance of the season. The taste of victory is sweet isn't it? My instincts are telling me the LIons have turned a significant corner. Certain things happened on the field that tell me the win was not a fluke. The Lions won in convincing fashion. Had Calvillo been playing I still think the Lions would have won!
While the game was still fraught with stupid Lions penalties there were many bright spots. Davis is phenomenal and is capable of giving the Lions good field position. The offensive line was providing something we've not seen all year- QB protection.
I say the Lions will carry this into their meeting against Toronto and prevail this Saturday. Toronto is coming into town with back to back losses against Hamilton. They narrowly beat the cellar dwellers [Edmonton 29-28] prior to these losses. Toronto's Lemon is getting a taste of what defeat means and that will start to play with his psyche. With a potent defense I'm looking for some interceptions by the Lions.
Avoid handing opportunities to Toronto on a silver platter by taking dumb penalties, fumbling the ball or dropping key passes, continue giving Printers the needed protection and Printers and the receivers, along with Robertson will get the job done! I'll predict a Lions victory by at least 14!
