Brees is unreal though.
Dude he is sick! Lions will need the best game of their lives to compete! we will see....

On a different note, giants actually playing like they want to win... I wouldn't put it past Eli to make a strong run in the playoffs

I was just thinking that regardless of their record they could still be a dangerous team in the playoffs, they've been there recently and won at lambeau.

Of anyone can defy all the odds... It's the giants. Eli plays so good under pressure, and their defense has REALLY stepped up its game!

I know this years playoffs will be short lived because I can honestly see NO winning the superbowl this year, but I really believe the lions will be a championship team within 2 more years, and I will be just as much of a fan regardless of how they do it!!

Heck I will still be a die-hard fan if they have another 0-16 year!!!
The cocky comments from me are directly taken from Suh acting like a "hard ass" all the time, doing stupid shit on the field and then denying it to the media. The chippy play, fights before games, Shwartz crying because Harbaugh didn't blow him during the handshake, players pointing after first downs, players "teebowing" and Suh imitating Rogers championship belt move today. Shit like that....it's just stupid. Add all of it up. Broad blanket statement on the Lions fans here, but they're all jumping on the bandwagon now. Pulling out the gear and blowing off the dust. And the comments about how good this team is, they're ill founded. Like I said, look at the schedule and tell me who they beat that was actually a quality team. Dallas? Denver? Minnesota? Oakland? Anyone? Did they beat a team over .500? Nope....ever single win was over a team at or below .500.

P.s. Did you ever stop to think that the Lions beating those teams helped to get those "shitty" teams under the .500 mark? The blind calling out directions great!

jump off your horse man... since when do people NOT showboat around the NFL? Really I want to know? Its entertainment man, I'm sorry if players get excited and try to pump their team up by getting excited.

Now lets talk win loss stats... Week 2 lions beat same KC that beat Packers.... Week 1 beat same Bucks that also defeated NO, and Falcons. And not to mention comebacks against decent teams. Obviously other teams win loss stats don't mean sh*t man, especially when an 8-8 team won afc west and a 9-7 team won nfc east.

So to answer your question, yes the lions won against credible teams, and yea I think they can showboat just as much as teams that lost to teams the Lions beat. Give them some credit before you look at nothing but records because at the end of the day only 5 teams in the whole league have a better record and it could be argued that a lot of those teams had an easy schedule as well when you look at records. Thats all I have to say about that.....

LOL Im a BIG Lions fan Jim... And I can't stand when guys look at teams records in the news paper to get their facts LOL...

Oh yeah I forgot to add in my last post that the lions also beat the same Raiders that beat the Texans, and the same Chargers that beat the AFC north champion Ravens.

I was at lambeau for the game...i agree the officiating was bad,but from what i seen was two teams play awesome football...what cost the lions the game was a turn over in their two minute drill. Neither team had any problem marching up and down the field, stafford was on mark 98% of the day. They had ever opportunity to win it, not only that but the skill set to win it. Quit blaming refs for a team making mistakes and losing the game.

I agree completely, and when I posted that I was upset and let my temper get the better of me.... I guess I was just upset at the epic fail from the refs that "could have" potentially made the game a bit more interesting...

Having said that, I know the lions have had TONS of stupid penalties all season and need to get that under control first and foremost.... All it is, a lot of emotion from a die hard fan!

Oh, okay....we're playing the "they beat that team, and we beat that them, so we can beat them"...ah. It doesn't work like that. I can appreciate your "fandom", but I'm simply applying logic to an otherwise overly emotional topic. It's easy as a fan to get caught up, and see your team for more than they are.

soul assasin ans superduty both make good points.

I look at the NFL (the mediocre football league) like this.

There are maybe 2 absolutely unbeatable teams in the NFC, the saints, and the packers, and there are 2 absolutely terrible teams in the NFC, the St. Louis Rams, and the Vikings. (Tampa bay could be included as well). The other teams bears, lions, cardinals, panthers, etc are all GOOD football teams that could beat anyone on any given sunday.

The saints and the packers should be favored every game, and "should win". All the other games are a toss up, and the Bucs, Vikings and Rams, "should" lose every game. These are professional teams and your gonna get a few unpredictable losses with the best and a few wins with the worst teams.

The lions fall in the middle, which means they should beat the teams they are better than, but they necessarily wont, same for losing to the saints and the packers, they should lose, but its not a given.

Can the lions beat the saints? Damn I hope so, but I surely wouldn.t put my hard earned cash on it.
