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.

Special Olympians think your thread title is retarded. With that being said, I've gone on record numerous times on this site and said they will make the playoffs this year.

Stafford wasn't healthy at all last year and they still went 6-10, split with the Champs and kept the game in G.B. close. Should have beat the Jets and Bears(1st game), won in T.B.(10-6 last year), and as was stated earlier went 12-4 ATS and none of those point spread were obscenely high either.

I ran that thread title for how they finished two years ago.  I think they were something like 0-16.   But look at your avatar WINNER.

Boy are you going to be surprised this year.   Better start being a believer or take down your avatar.  The only way i think they don't make at least a wild card is if the run into a ton of injuries like the have in the past years.   Dig up this thread after 11 or 12 games and prove me wrong.

Well this isn't two years ago now is it? A lot changes in the NFL year to year. Maybe it's time you stop dwelling on two years ago. And my avatars pic is doing A LOT better than yours.

I consulted with a couple Special Olympians and they said they still think you're thread is lame. In case you didn't know the Panthers drafted first this year because they WERE the worst team in pro football last year.

Also, stop calling them YOUR Lions. If you were a true fan of them and the NFL you wouldn't choose such an ignorant title for a thread about them.

How can you have the number one rated defense in the league before the year starts and not have a better year.  You are going to be really surprised how well this team plays.
