Tuesday open thread: Do you feel better Dwayne Washington Jersey White , worse or the same after the Lions’ loss to the Jets? They say there’s no such thing as a stupid question, but today’s Question of the Day is going to test that mantra. It’s become a weekly tradition here at Pride of Detroit to gauge Lions fans’ confidence in the team throughout the regular season, asking fans whether they’re feeling better or worse about the team after each week’s performance. Coming out of the preseason, hope was lower than normal. The Lions looked horrible in pretty much every quarter of the exhibition season, but it was easy to brush that off as meaningless. Those concerns are much harder to ignore when the same issues popped up in the first regular season game against what was thought to be an inferior opponent. So today’s Question of the Day is:Do you feel better, worse or the same after the Lions’ loss to the Jets?My answer: A lot worse... duh.I knew the defense was going to struggle early on, and not much about that side of the ball surprised me. In fact, early on, the defense actually looked a little better than I was expecting.However, the continued struggles of the offense were surprising Sam Martin Jersey , even if the feeling was all too familiar. For some time, the Lions’ offensive talent has been considered top-notch, but Detroit’s offense efficiency has never matched that perception. In the first week, the Lions’ run game continued to look awful, the Lions offense again had a debilitatingly slow start, and Matthew Stafford got his ass kicked yet again.Overall, there’s very little about this team that looked much different from the team that collapsed down the stretch against inferior opponents last year. And they may even be significantly worse than where they were at the end of 2017.I’m not saying the Lions made a mistake in hiring Matt Patricia or that their 2018 season is already lost, but, man, it’s really hard to feel good about this team right now Womens Jake Rudock Jersey , whereas you could at least make some sort of argument 24 hours ago.Your turn. The Detroit Lions seem to need a win over Green Bay to stop Matt Patricia's first season from being a flop.Week 5 may seem a little early for an NFL team to be desperate.Not in Detroit.The Lions (1-3) were embarrassed in a 48-17 loss to the New York Jets, who haven't won since the opener and appear to be one of the league's worst teams . The Lions did earn an impressive win over New England in Week 3, but the lone victory is sandwiched between comebacks that fell short at San Francisco and Dallas.Detroit, which hasn't won a division title since 1993, can get a boost of confidence and go into a bye week on a high if it can beat the Packers (2-1-1) for a third straight time."It would be huge because if you win this one, you get to enjoy this one for a little bit longer and you got a break to enjoy," Detroit receiver Golden Tate said. "If you lose this, you're thinking about it until you're back on the field."Besides that, it's a divisional game. I like to think it counts as two. A win for us and a loss for them, that's a two-game swing in my mind."Unlike last year's season sweep DeShawn Shead Jersey White , though, the Lions will have to face two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers. He was injured for the 2017 matchups."One of the best ways to get into the playoffs is to win your division games and this is our first opportunity," Detroit safety Glover Quin said. "If we get a win here, we'll have two wins just like Green Bay. Minnesota has one. Chicago has three wins, but no one is running away with it right now."Here are some things to watch for in Sunday's game at Ford Field:RODGERS REAXGreen Bay's superstar quarterback voiced his displeasure with the offensive production last week against Buffalo despite a 22-0 win and 400-plus yards of offense. Coach Mike McCarthy has chalked up the frustration to Rodgers' competitiveness, adding he was also unhappy.Rodgers has been playing through a left knee injury that appears to limit his mobility."When the adrenaline kicks in on game day, I've felt a little better the last couple games," he said.Green Bay's top three receivers are banged-up, leading to them miss practice time. Davante Adams has a calf injury. Randall Cobb missed the Bills game with a hamstring injury. Geronimo Allison has been in the concussion protocol.POSSIBLE PAY DAYTate is on pace to have the best season of his nine-year career with team highs in catches (28), yards receiving (389) and receiving touchdowns (three) through four games.Entering the final year of his contract Marvin Jones Jr Jersey White , Tate said his agent and the Lions are not discussing a new deal."I'm always down for talking, but they completely stopped," the 30-year-old Tate said. "I'm just going to do my job. I still feel young, which is a major key."ANOTHER AARONAaron Jones could be emerging from the Packers' crowded backfield. A slasher with big-play potential, Jones is working his way back into the three-man running back rotation after being suspended the first two games. He's averaging 6.3 yards per carry after averaging 5.5 yards last year as a rookie.Jamaal Williams started the first four games and has stood out in pass protection. Ty Montgomery is a receiving threat out of the backfield. Jones has been third in the rotation, allowing the Packers to put perhaps their best runner into the game at a time when the defense isn't as fresh.R-E-S-P-E-C-TDetroit's Darius Slay, who has an NFL-high nine interceptions since the start of 2017, has become one of the league's best cornerbacks, as last season's All-Pro recognition confirmed."He's a premier corner," Rodgers said. "And the thing I've always respected about him is he does star coverage. He plays on both sides of the field … ner-jersey , he plays in the slot, and not many corners do that."In 2015 after the Lions won in Green Bay, Slay said Rodgers foresaw the recognition that was coming."You're underrated," Slay recalled Rodgers saying to him. "You're one of the top guys. Keep playing and you'll get (notoriety)."PRESSURE PACKAGEThe Packers' defense finally put together a four-quarter performance in the shutout of the Bills after three roller- coaster weeks of alternating one good half with one choppy half. Granted, they had seven sacks and forced three turnovers against a rookie quarterback in Buffalo's Josh Allen.
