The Lions...

I watched the Lions preseason game the other night...and I have to say, I was REALLY impressed with the first team offense.

Stafford had poise in the pocket, delivered the ball like a rocket, and ran the offense virtually flawlessly. He looked GREAT back there...dare I say, he looked an AWFUL lot like a certain Number 18 that hangs out down in Indianapolis when he was running the no huddle. Had I watched the game and NOT known that it was Stafford back there, I would have never guessed that it was a second year QB.

Jahvid Best?? Wow. Absolutely electrifying. The kid's got speed and moves. Might he be that running back the Lions have looked for since #20 abruptly retired??

Megatron...what more is there to say?? Calvin Johnson is a freak of nature, and he made a couple of All Universe catches that make you realize how good he really is. One in particular, coming across the middle, ball thrown a bit behind him, but he made the adjustment and came down with it...was literally awesome.

Now look...I'm not saying that they are going to be a playoff team...but I do think that they are going to be FAR from that 0-16 two seasons ago. I'm honestly really looking forward to the season for them.

They are certainly on the right track. Good thing they aren't in the Skins division... ;-)
