As far as offense i think they can keep up with just about anyone in this league. I guess we will just have to wait and see. I still have them pegged for 9 or 10 wins and in the tough NFC that might just get you a wild card spot. They are a lot better team than most of you are giving them credit for but only if they stay healthy.
KEY GAMES if they want that wild card:
1. Obviously division games but we are talking wild card.
2.Tampa, Orleans, Dallas, and Atlanta! Need to beat them as they are all a potential wild card and need the potential tie breaker. These are all tough teams this year and I project the Lions to lose 2-3 of these games which is why I dont see a playoff birth this year.
