It's very motivational to be underrated


Here we go

Lately all I hear is how good the Packers are, or how the Saints are probably going to the big show. I listen to many of the sports analyst and the only thing mentioned about the lions are how they will likely be one and done. I for one believe in the Lions, although they have been slightly sporadic, have been in every game, and they expected to win every game. Their only losses are to playoff teams,with the exception of Chicago (who was looking like a playoff team until Cutler and Forte went down). I don't think the Lions' offense is nearly as suspect as their Defense, as was very evident in Green Bay during week 17. Green bay, The Saints, and The Patriots are all very similar to Detroit in my opinion, they all have high powered offenses that can score a ton of points. The exception is, I actually think Detroit "might" have a slightly better defense than any of the three mentioned, if they can stay healthy and focused on their immediate assignments, and stop the run and especially the big plays. The one area that I believe is Detroit's biggest weakness is special teams, other than Hanson (who has even let me down a couple of times this season), The Lions' kickoff coerage has got to be one of the worst in the league, and the return game has become very uneventful much of the time. Detroit's offense can score as many points as any team in the league. If the defense, and special teams step their game up a notch, Look out for the underrated Lions, they could definitely make a push in the playoffs! I have to admit I would have been satisfied with an 8-8 season this year, but when they were at 5-0 I started having higher hopes, then I was brought back down after a few losses. Now with our first trip to the playoffs in many years, my hopes are high again. Unlike the majority of the world, I not only believe we can win I believe we will win, and SHOCK THE WORLD!!! GO LIONS
