Hi guys. I am a member of Arrowhead Pride, a Chiefs fan and also the lead moderator for Warpaint Illustrated. I thought I would stop by and give you an outsiders perspective on your Lions. You might wonder sometimes how the rest of the league is viewing your team. I can not answer for everyone, but I do get a lot of comments about your team and I also frequent other teams sites to pick up topics for conversation on Warpaint Illustrated.
So here you go;
A team with such a hard history as the Lions really has no enemies. I have not talked to one person who wishes you guys anything but the best of luck. For me there is a certain honor in sports amongst opposing teams. I am one of those guys that continues to root for you week in and week out. I was biting my nails and pacing through the entire Green Bay game.
Look, it is very simple. Your team is a lot like the Rams team; no one expected this good of play from you guys quite yet. I know it can be frustrating when you see your record in lights, but make no mistake about it: your record is very misleading.
Shawn Hill is playing lights out which means your QB situation may just be the best in the NFL. Who knew right? You would have to be blind not to see the amazing progress your team is making right now. Its a shocker to be honest. I see a team that is right there on the threshold and just a few adjustments and one good draft away from shocking the NFL as the runaway team in your division.
Hang in there guys, GREAT things are in store for you. I can see it every week. I know you want wins, every fan does, but you have to get good before you get great and that is what is happening right now for you guys.
There is just a new attitude in Detroit. The players are fired up and playing to win instead of playing not to lose like in years past. Matt Stafford will continue to mature and get better as the season goes on. The close losses will slowly start to become wins. Then the confidence will kick in and once your guys get a taste for winning, it will be all GO from there.
Just wanted to let you know that the rest of the league is rooting for you to win and we know you will sooner than later. Schwartz is doing great things for you, so don't give up and don't get down, your on your way.
Don't be surprised if next season you guys push for a playoff run. I mean that. The writing is on the wall and it is only a matter of time now. Keep up the good work guys and keep the faith, better days are coming. For now, enjoy the progress being made and look for the good in each game. You have to know this is a whole different Lions team now.
Thank God you have a new GM. That was key to righting the ship. Kc fans will always welcome a visit from our sister site over here. Stop by and say hi sometime. My prediction is that you will go on a 2 game winning streak, drop one and win two more within a couple of weeks from now. From there, skies the limit.
Peace for now fellow football family. Talk to you later (-;
