FanPost

After a weekend of wildcard football, I can say this.

In previous years I would sit down and one of the first things out of my mouth would be, "Well were about to watch a whole different type of football then what we witnessed all year long."

 

The Lions just did not play the same game as these playoff caliber teams. We were talent short and handicapped by our schemes. Some warmed over Tampa 2 with the incorrect personnel, or some type of offense with an offensive coordinator and a passing coach or some weird set up like that,  just wasn't cutting it. It was painfully obvious that we sucked.

 

Well, those days are gone. Just about every team that played this weekend I felt we stacked up and could play just as well as any of them, if not better then a few. I know our offense is on par or better in most of those teams. The defense is just about equal, and we attack on D just as good as any team that played this weekend even though it was a tad obvious were still a bit personnel challenged in spots.

 

So in my opinion, were back in the NFL and ready to play meaningful, playoff football next year.
