I say they win 8 games this year, think theyll surprise people. Like what they did this offseason for the most part. How many do you think theyll win?

8 wins? What are you smoking?!? I think they win 4 wins max, rgis team was HORRIBLE last year, you really think they get 8 more wins this year than last? They have improved some but not by that much.

I like Det. offseason pick ups, but an 8-8 record is asking a lot.

8 wins if you include this year, next year, and half of the year after that.  Detroit has a bad habit of getting rid of the few good players they have and getting nothing in return.

8 wins may have been me being overly optimistic as a homer but they did win 7 games 2 years ago, is it really that outrageous. they have one of the better linebacking cores with sims, foote, and peterson. im hearing good things about the 2nd rd pick delmas. pettigrew could come in and help out the offense, and i like the new coaching staff. I dont think 8 wins is out of the realm of possibility and ill definitely be making an over 5 bet at the best odds i can find

xhuge- I agree, could the lions go winless again? sure but I'll gladly bet my money that they win 5 or better especially at +odds

fade- somebody tells you a year ago today that the dolphins and/or falcons make the playoffs you are going to and think they are crazy things happen in sports, if the lions make the playoffs it probably wont be the wildest thing that happens in the nfl next year

This is a clear example of the effects of drugs and alcohol can have on someone's lateral thinking. Drugs and gambling don't mix.

I think the Lions can win about 7 games, if Culpepper can come in and produce some good numbers. Does anyone think that he is over the hill?

I think 4 to 5 wins max.  However, they could cover up to 8 games.  I usually look for this situation during the season.  Vegas will have them as big underdog and they will cover many games, before the lines get adjusted.  They will probably be in the double digits as underdog up to mid season.  I will hit this team hard up to the 5th week.  Do you guys agree?  Comments are welcome.
 
Thanks.
