Re: Greatest touchdowns in Lions' history

#7 - Eric Carter in the 2000 WDF When it comes to defensive Lions touchdowns, most people will remember Keith Gooch in the 1985 WDF and Charles Gordon in the 1994 GC. But similar to point #1 above about how 2000 season is unpopular, then along with is the 2000 WDF in which the Lions went to Calgary...

Re: 2000 Team bonding leads to Grey Cup Win

Finally, one of the most underrated, underappreciated, and forgotten Lions games in its entirety - the 2000 WDF in which the Lions went to McMahon as underdogs and but performed terrific especially the defence to come out with a solid 37-23 win. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eukvdyS20n8 And my pro...

Re: 2004 - a tough Grey Cup loss

Sept 18: Edmonton 33 at BC 36 (OT)


While not official, this Lions win allowed them to be closer to clinching first in the west for the first time in 5 years. Sean Fleming's attempt to tie the game failed when his FG hit the crossbar.

Re: Eskimos: change your name

Because of Black Lives Matter and the crisis that's happening in America right now, the Washington Redskins name change has revived yet again. And if the nickname does change, I wonder if it will cause a chain reaction to change all sports team names related to people groups. ------------ In 2001 an...

Re: Greatest touchdowns in Lions' history

Here is another excellent example of a more forgotten and underrated Lions greatest touchdowns. We all agree that the 2004 WDF is much more memorable compared to the 2000 WDF and perhaps even the 2006 and 2011 WDF because they were blowout wins. But even though the 2004 is well remembered and memora...

Re: Greatest touchdowns in Lions' history

I will tell you which Lions TD will NOT rank in the anywhere in the top 20 when it comes to greatest TD's in Lions' history despite its huge sentimental background behind it as it involves legend Lui Passaglia. First, as a warm-up. If there's a discussion on Lui's greatest field goal, we all know wh...

Re: Greatest touchdowns in Lions' history

Since it was always so difficult to score a touchdown in Edmonton, let alone winning there then I'll list three more Lions TD's in Edmonton: #1 - Jim Sandusky on November 1, 1987 The Lions and Eskimos were battling for first in the west, and the Lions scored 17 unanswered points in the 4th quarter t...

Re: Greatest touchdowns in Lions' history

Grey Cup touchdowns are always memorable because of the huge stakes involved. Two key second-half TDs from the Lions' most recent Grey Cup victory at B.C. Place in 2011 are among my favourites. 1. Travis Lulay's 66-yard TD pass to Kierrie Johnson was the longest play of the game and gave the Lions ...

Re: Greatest touchdowns in Lions' history

When it comes to such lists, the usual and obvious is always mentioned and as such, I have a tendency to mention the more underrated and possibly forgotten Lions touchdowns. As such, I'll do the same thing with what I consider to be Lions touchdowns which were unfortunately overshadowed by other Lio...
