Naturally, after the Lions destroy the Broncos with an impressive overall performance, the media only talks about how horrific Tim Tebow is rather than everything the Lions did right. Detroit took Tebow down seven times, forced five fumbles, and grabbed three takeaways in a game that was never even close. Stafford shook off any questions about his ankle, tossing three touchdowns to three different receivers, and even Maurice Morris got into the endzone. Similar to the rival Packers, this team has major issues getting consistent offense from its weak running attack, but when you have Stafford or Rodgers, that apparently isn't all that important. —Tony Markovich
