The Dark Side a realistic view of the lions

CLF inspired me to go back and re-read some of the post from back in 2009 and what everyone was saying. What I came across was pure GOLD


The link to the article is here.

This was just supposed to be a prediction prior to the 09 season about how many wins we would have (he was surprisingly close and even got the draft pick we would get right)

The best part however was the reaction that everyone had to the post everyone completely destroyed him for "not being a real lions fan" and being too pessimistic. Looking back I remember why everyone was feeling that way but looking back at it now and knowing how the season actually turned out is pretty funny to re-read.

One of my favorite parts was this

[Week 14: @ Baltimore Score: BAL 24 - DET 0 (Record 2-11)

Lions gather 12 yards rushing on 26 attempts. Stafford suffers his second concussion. The Ravens rack up 160 yards rushing, 10 sacks and 3 INT's.]

"Thats an absurd amount of sacks were giving up.."
