Excited for the Season...

Tonight the Lions started their preseason games, and it went pretty well.

Now, I know the preseason doesn't really matter...but for a team like the Lions, it does. The biggest win of the day?? Stafford started and played and made it to the bench without getting hurt.

In the few minutes he played, he looked amazing...everything like the #1 pick in 2009 should look going into his third season.

I'm excited for the Lions this year. I think they have the potential to be pretty darn good, if they can keep everyone healthy. They've already lost a couple of players to injury, but as long as the rest of the team stays intact I think a 9-7 record is achievable, and they should be able to compete for second in the division.

I'm not quite sure they're a playoff team, but they are well on their way...which is more than you've been able to say for the Lions in a LOOOONG time.

ESPN just blew one of my ideas out of the water and featured the Lions D on their fantasy site.


I think they are definitely on the right track and this could be the year they surprise a lot of people.
