A Joshsun look at the game tonight!

We wanted to be taken seriously. More importantly, we wanted a team that was worth taking seriously. We have that today.

We are stable if not stellar on defense. We are explosive on offense. (little side note: Staff has been more than I could have ever wanted from him so far.) We have players on both sides of the ball that will make you pay for even the simplest of mistakes.

I can't remember a Lions team that was ready to pounce like that. Even during the Fontes era I never felt that way.Tonight we face the Bears. This is our best test so far. This is a team that knows us. Knows what we like to do. Knows how we play the game. We have a chance to put Chicago in a hole in the division that has rarely been overcome. 

I know this game is far from certain but I have a funny feeling. Perhaps it is the beer coursing through my veins. Perhaps it is homerism. Perhaps is it the reality that we have more talent. What ever the reason, I believe we are going to pull out a close and hard fought game tonight. We are going to end up 5-0. We will let the rest of the league know, we are genuine and will not quit.

I would hope you expected stats to support my feelings. Numbers that say we have an advantage. I am not that guy, not tonight. I just feel it today. We are due to beat these fuckers and I could not be happier about it. It is our turn to shuffle the NFC North in crazy fashion.

I do not know about you. I have been waiting for this day since before Barry retired. It feels great to have that confidence back.
