Detroit Lions Weblog: Lions Defense Encouraging in Opening Loss

I was able to watch this game on the regional feed here in Indianapolis. Though I was disappointed by the outcome, I was impressed at the defensive effort put forth by the team.

Detroit Lions Weblog:
"The Lions defense was nearly spectacular in the Lion's opening game loss to Seattle. They were agressive, hard-hitting and if they are able to play at this level consistently, will be a winning defense. Unfortunately, with the team's offensive struggles Sunday, the defense was unable to make the crucial stops on the Seahawks final offensive drive to send the game into overtime.

There appears to be no room for moral victories under new head coach Rod Marinelli. He said that the team lost the game and that was not what they had set out to accomplish, so he was disappointed. In my eyes, and likely most Lions fans, this game gives us something to feel good about (No matter how fleeting that feeling may be). This is the type of performance that this team can build upon, that's for sure."
