Lions still with a lot of work to do

The Lions were able to win today against the Seahawks in what some people called a “must-win” to go to 3-4 on the season.  It was another late comeback win as the Lions were able to score with 20 seconds left to win 28-24 but a disturbing trend continues for the team.

In the Lions last 11 wins, seven have been of the come-from-behind variety in the fourth quarter, which is a trend that is not likely to continue for this team.  They are much closer to being 0-7 than 7-0 need to figure out how to score in the first half before falling way behind and in need of a miracle comeback.

As for the already depleted secondary, Louis Delmas left the game in the third quarter with a knee injury and did not return.  After the game coach Jim Schwartz confirmed it was the same knee that was surgically repaired this August but isn’t sure what the injury is, “It’s the same knee, but I don’t know that it is the same injury. He’ll have tests.”

Here’s hoping Delmas will be back quickly because the secondary was thin with him and without him is, well worse.  He may be overrated, but he is important to this team and is the closest thing to a playmaker the back-end of this defense has.

So what do you think Lions fans, is all of the comeback wins a cause for concern or is this just the make-up of this team?  Let us know at @DSBloggers on Twitter or on Facebook or in the comments below to tell us what you, the fans, think.
