Our friends at ESPN have picked the Lions to finish last in the division again, see their preview page for the Lions here: http://espn.go.com/nfl/preview10/team/_/name/det. I find it hard to believe that they keep John Clayton around, he who ranks Jay Cutler as the #15 QB in the league, and Matthew Stafford at #27. Cutler led the league in INTs last year, and playing in a Mike Martz offense this year, he could easily exceed his INT total of 26 from last year. Clayton comments that the Lions will have the 2nd most improved offense in the division behind the Bears. What Bears team has he been watching in pre-season?
The Lions will continue to receive negative press in the major outlets until they start winning games in the regular season.
