So about these guarantees -- they have to stop.
The latest is Roy Williams (the Detroit one, not the Dallas one), who, after his team managed to score 6 points on 60 yards, assures us all that the Lions will beat the Bears this Sunday.
We'll win this game. You can take that as a guarantee or whatnot, but we will win this game. I'm just saying, we're going to go out there and play the way we supposed to play, and when we play the way we're supposed to play, we're supposed to win. That's what I'm saying. We're supposed to win. No 'Sheed. No nothing. Just, when we play the way we're supposed to play -- like our defense played the way they played Sunday -- when we play the way we're supposed to play, I don't think there's any team in this league that can beat us. Offensively, we beat ourselves. No defense can stop us, in my opinion. That's only my opinion. We are our only defense.
To clarify: if the Lions play the way they supposed to play, they gonna win. I did/do think the Lions are going to win their division, but I don't know if they're as good as Williams claims. The Seahawks have a good defense, but they're nothing like the Bears, and I don't know if I want to be a trash-talking wide receiver laying out for a catch with an angry and inspired Charles Tillman hunting for my head. But that's just me.
The best part of the braggadacio, however, comes with Williams' math. Regarding the loss to Seattle:
You don't even know how close we were to dropping 40 on them.
Um, yes, I do Roy. You were 34 points away from dropping 40 on them. That's, uh, not so close.
