LIONS FREAK SHOW BEGINS TONIGHT
The Lions play the New York Jets tonight in the first exhibition game of the season.
I cannot wait to see safety Kenoy Kennedy blast the first wide receiver coming over the middle. I want to see lighter offensive lineman Damien Woody and I want to see a healthy Charles Rogers catch that first pass and flip the ball to the official.
But I admit to be transfixed to the freak show.
Doesn't it always come back to quarterback for the Lions? We will study every move of starter Joey Harrington and surmise why he deserves to keep his job or lose it. And we will do the same with back up Jeff Garcia, the more experienced man.
Looking at a Lions quarterback like a zoo animal is almost as big a Detroit tradition as Vernors, Faygo and Belle Isle.
We are obsessed with this position. Many of you booed Harrington so loudly that it even surprised some Lions players. He will be fine tonight. I question how well he plays at home.
You will be all over him after the first mistake and is he tough enough to handle it? There are no excuses on offense. The Lions are solid at wide receiver, running back and tight end. They are young and will make youthful mistakes, but if they get any type of quarterback play they should score a lot of points.
The freak show begins tonight.
And yes I will be front and center in front of the television to see the bearded lady sing.
