NFL  > Detroit Lions  > The Lions are a legit black horse this year.

They should have an explosive offense this year. With a better defense. The secondary is still very suspect. Adding Vanden bosch, Williams and Suh should give the corners the time they need to play their schemes. It's been a while since I have been excited about my Lions. 7-9 8-8 is what I'm calling. Hell, I'll even go on a ledge here... we WILL be better than the Bears and maybe the Packers.

out of curiousity... how many wins did you predict for the Dolphins when they went 1-15 to the playoffs the next year?

I didn't because the Dolphins weren't on many peoples minds but I did go along with others that thought it was a fluke and the dolphins wouldn't repeat, which they didn't.

The kittens, I mean Lions, will underwhelm less this year, but still underwhelm. They may be able to cause concern for the Bears though. The first game in Chicago on September 12 will forecast the season. I predict Lions will go 4-12 this year while the Packers win the division, the conference and then lose a close Super Bowl.

OK, I'll bite. Here's how they get to 8-8.
at Chicago - I dont like their WR's as much as I dont like our DB's. (1-0)
Philly - Kolb's 2nd game under center (2-0)
at Vikings - Favre back in town (2-1)
at Packers - Best in the division (2-2)
Rams - We are farther into the rebuild process (3-2)
at Giants - Road game against one of the best divisions in NFL. (3-3)
Skins - Home game. Halloween. Time for us to learn to be scary good. (4-3)
Jets - Best defense in the league? (4-4)
at Bills - Worse than the Rams. (5-4)
at Dallas - See Giants. (5-5)
Pats - Best showing on Turkey Day in years, but....(5-6)
Bears - See game 1 (6-6)
Packers - See game 4 (6-7)
at Bucs - See Rams (7-7)
at Miami - Potential playoff team on the road. (7-8)
Vikings - The old man sits out to rest for the playoffs. (8-8)
