In previous seasons, many of us chose to tune out what the rest of the world was saying about the Detroit Lions, if they were even talking about them at all.
It’s much different story as the Lions stroll into Week 6 with a 4-1 record, not just beating but pummeling teams with good rosters. This is no fluke, the Lions are a force to reckon with, which means now it’s much more fun to see what people are saying about Detroit.
“The only thing more impressive than the Lions offense was their defense. It was almost like the Lions knew what the Panthers were going to do before they even did it. The Lions were already good and they seem to be getting better every week, which should scare the rest of the NFL.”

“This is back-to-back weeks where the Lions have slaughtered an inferior opponent. That’s a strong mark of a great team. The Lions are CLEARLY the class of the NFC North at this point and have a formula built in Dan Campbell’s likeness, with their biggest strengths coming in the trenches.”
The Detroit Lions are super impressive.— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) October 8, 2023
“Keeping a winless club from finding any spark was precisely the step Dan Campbell’s club needed to prove it can be an upper-echelon club.”

- On a serious note, Alex Anzalone shared how his parents are stuck in Israel amid the conflict. The Detroit News’ Justin Rogers has the story.
- Heckuva fact.
- Great find from Chris Burke:
From the Dan Campbell/Ben Johnson archives ...— Chris Burke (@ChrisBurkeNFL) October 9, 2023
Tom Kennedy said then that David Blough suggested the play design, because it had worked for Blough at Purdue. https://t.co/DtaEx6QkJn
- I just had to share this personal anecdote — I tweeted “I love the Detroit Lions” and I got called a bandwagon fan. It makes me so happy the idea of a Lions bandwagon fan event exists. <3
