Positives to take from the rubble pile in New Orleans

Monday, September 14, 2009

Searching desperately for positives from the Lions' season-opening blowout loss to New Orleans, I have this:

1. Special teams looked very good all day, on both coverage and returns. Kind of a surprise, as I didn't think special teams looked particularly good in the preseason. Aaron Brown just basically took what was (I think) supposed to be Derrick Williams' job away from him.

2. Turnovers! Including one for a score! Remember those? Me either. It's been a LONG time.

3. There was a battling back after (again) going down big early that I don't recall from any point last year.
