Lions are a good team. Perhaps a very good team,.
Good teams have an annoying habit of revealing flaws in opponents.
HAM is not a good team and have plenty of flaws.
Half full : Flashy debut for newcomer Butler ? Dunbar blossoms into star we were told he'd be ? Oline finally run blocks ? Lions come out flat after after bye week with turnovers? Clutching at straws here...
Half Empty : We get embarrassed because there isnt enough above average talent. Everything laid bare.
All signs pointing to a disaster. Playing a road game on a short week, with the always brutal late night time change for eastern teams, and then add the fact the home team is coming off a bye week. The only good thing is that weather won't be a factor so Stein doesn't have to make the gut-wrenching decision of whether to take the wind in the fourth quarter or not.
