A good survivor pick this week? A new QB for Buffalo? A home game for Lions? Hmmmm

Agreed Lemswice - welcome to GB.

detfan - if the Lions don't beat the Jets, any promise that has been shown thus far is wasted...

IMO, Stafford needs to step it up a couple notches. He has a very nice assortment of offensive weapons this year. He needs to start learning how to step out of the pocket this season when it closes in on him and make plays. If he improves his foot work, our O line stays in good shape and the D keeps doing what they do best, then there is no reason they shouldn't make the playoffs this year. As a life long Detroit fan I know there is a good chance they will break my heart again this yr like they have for the last 25, but the pieces are there this year.

What? Bears and Lions don't look weak, GB has played two of the top Defenses in the NFL...

I would say only Minny is weak - especially with AP being caught in the PC net.

The division has become one of the weaker ones, so I am hopeful they will at least make the playoffs!

Detroit signed Josh Bynes inside LB from Baltimore to replace Tulloch.I say this will be a great help with the defence that is getting better each week.As Detroit ranks top 10 in every major statistical defence category including number 1 in yards allowed.

Detroit's D is in beast mode... Which it needed to be to pick-up Stafford in this one.

I'll always take a win against the Pack!

The gamblers have made us a 3 point underdog against Carolina.

"How can you lose track of the league's best WR?"

Because he's the league's best WR.

"... Wonder if somebody got their butts chewed?"

Having been on both the giving and receiving ends of such a chewing, I can vouch for its effectiveness.

Boom! Finally, the Lions put away a team that they should dominate.

8 penalties in the first half, 0 in the second... Wonder if somebody got their butts chewed?

Much tougher game next week.

Except for the penalties, they looked very good last night. I was shocked when I saw Megatron all by himself on that first TD. How can you lose track of the league's best WR?

Well, I have to admit, I actually enjoyed the game, except for the first half penalties. The Lions actually looked like a competent football team.

. . . however, we have seen this before, and, well . . .

I expect these Lions to be competitive in every game this season, given their roster right now.

The O should be more consistent this year as well. Time to prove what is on paper, boys!

Lions looked pretty solid against the Browns First Team - albeit for one series.

Really looking forward to Golden Tate helping Megatron this year. Also hoping that the Lions Offensive Line proves to be the strength given the potential that has been reported thus far. It has been a long time since the unit was better than mediocre, which was a rare feat anyway under Millen.

So what does everyone think? The pre season Kool-Aid I've been reading indicates the Lions will roar this year. So, does a new head coach, and some new players add up to a better year? Do we improve at all from 7-9? Do we win the division? Are the Bears and Packers still better than Detroit? Is it realistic to think we can finally make the Super Bowl?

My guess is that we will have a winning record, but will look to a few games at the end of the year, where the Lions looked like, well, the Lions, and we will miss a wild card slot.

Not that I am preconditioned by decades of Lions history . . . .

Go Lions!!

I can only hope we are seeing he beginning of the end for Pettigrew - but I am concerned that we spent so much on Offense when Defense (especially in the Secondary) seems to be the reason the Lions lose so many games.

Guess time will tell, but I was not overly encouraged by the Draft on my first impression. Hopefully I am wrong.

I'm glad we took the TE as Pettigrew has lost my votes as a player I want to catch a ball to make a big play he was a lost puppy last year.I see a lot of passes this year going to TE to open Calvin up to some monster plays and the TE makes some Big plays this year to.We may be finally Super Bowl bound !!!!
We may soon be seeing the last of Pettigrew ???

No the Lions absolutely did not need a TE - he better be a beast in that he replaces Pettigrew...

Mayhew better use many of his next picks on D - especially in the Secondary. I was actually hoping to get a replacement center for Raiola too... we'll see.
