Skip -

Ok Jay, you can call me crazy, cause you often do, on a daily basis, but I'm gonna be crazy, and im gonna go way out to the very end of this limb, and I'm gonna pick the home team Detroit Lions to officially announce their return to the living in the NFL by shocking the "not yets" since i've been calling them all year 17-14. If you look carefully at what the Detroit Lions have done so far, they've played every team on their schedule close and tough, I'm talking about, you can go right down the line, the Bears, Phili, GreenBay, even the New York football Giants. They creamed the St louis Rams, and we were all saying uh-oh the Rams have arrived now. Then last week they finally got over a big game hump against a pretty good Washington team. Their ready to make this announcement, because Ndamukong Suh has already announced to the NFL, he is already the most dominating defensive lineman in the league...

... I gotta tell you, people probably don't watch this closely, you probably do looking at tape, but those two corners for the Lions, Chris Houston, Alfonso Smith are playing at a pro bowl level, and im not exagerating that. So all of a sudden the peices fall into place, Calvin Johnson playing at a pro bowl level, i think he will get Darrelle Revis a couple times cause Revis hasn't quite been Revis so far this year after his big long hold out. So im gonna go 17-14 shocker.

 



You can watch the replay of this on "1st and 10" at 2:30pm.
