    The Lions not kicking that FG is mind numbingly dumb. Love Dan Campbell and everything he’s done but going up 3 scores versus two if they don’t get it is quite silly and now it’s a one score game.

    Yep said that at the time to myself too.

    I understand the logic in the regular season, but this is the playoffs. It's huge dis-service to the whole team to play risky games like that and it not work. That might just cost them the game.

    Week 1 through Super Bowl there are holding/not holding calls that could be called for every game, every team.

    Clowny straight hit Mahomes in the facemask with his helmet. In this era of NFL, 100% roughing the passer. Do I like it? No, but I'm not shocked the flag pulled.

    Being aggressive is what got them here

    Spot on. FG would have put them up 17. Despicable.

    That’s not being aggressive. That’s fucking stupidity,
    Aggressive is going for it on fourth and 1 at the 50.
    The difference between 14 and 17, in football in the second half is huge.

    It is unless you're Zach Wilson.

    I get both sides.

    I would say this, the lions had all the momentum. If they kick the FG the momentum continues. The only way they could have given the 49ers hope was by going for it on 4th down.

    Of course if they made it or if they had kicked the fg and missed it's a different conversation but it obviously looks bad in retrospect.

    Well, the Lions' ride was nice while it lasted.

    Looking more and more like another shitty Super Bowl with no rooting interest at all available to me.

    I'd suggest they (the Lions) score this possession.

    Would be nice. Given how lost they look at the moment, I'm not hopeful.

    Niners D line is going to tee off now.
    Crowd is back to being a factor, I think Niners win this by at least 10 now.

    We're just watching the new version of it with the Chiefs.

    Mahomes is just as insufferable as Brady ever was.
