Yes there has been a bit of luck on the Lions part but then again luck has been on the side of the opposition in the past. 6-2 sounds good but they really haven't played too many good teams so we'll see how things pan out the rest of the way. After all, we can't get too excited, this is the Detroit Lions we're talking about here.

GO LIONS!

Best unintentional delay of game penalty ever. I started watching when it was 21-3, lol. Picked it up at the right time!

Now the Lions get 2 weeks to rest, good timing. Will be nice to have Megatron back in the line-up.

Fairley's health might be a bit of bad luck seeing how he was crunched by his own teammate.

They will lose Sunday morning, just because I will be able to watch the game . . .

Prove me wrong, Lions. I mean, you are a 4 point favorite in a neutral country.

After 7wks and Detroit still #1 D-Fence nice comeback game going into wk 8
Sundays game will air at 9 am here from Wembley Stadium being a world wide game I see Detroit D ripping Atlanta apart and sacking Ryan 4+ times and 2+ interceptions.Johnson may be playing after missing 2wks and if Staffard can get in the grove should pass for over 350 with 4 TDS.
I have Detroit winning 34-9 and going into bye wk 6-2

Well Weasel as you say considering the source glad to see you don't stop with the remarks you made along with detfan during Tigers disaster season.
Well why don't you give us your prediction for the team this year,As you remember I had a ball calling out detfan and proving most of you all wrong with the tigers,Especially when they had the 7 game lead in the division.You and others were ready to pop the corks !!!!!!
Were are they now o that's right I said KC would be going to WS before tigers,And price trade it came back to haunt them with trading Smyly who ended with Tampa 3-1 1.70 ERA like I said it would.Plus you need to learn to read I said we will possibly be going 14-2 not will be.Let me make a
clarification I have Lions 12-4 winning division.Then going from there.
And yes the D-Fence is for real this year!!!!

"Is the Lions D-line THAT good, or was it more a bad Viking O-line making them look that good."

I think you could say both are probably true, but I would lean more towards the Lions D being pretty stout...

"It was an undermanned Lions offense as well and a pretty boring game."

Yes it was - on both counts.

"Projecting 14-2 mrkidd? Setting yourself up for disappointment I'd say."

14-2 won't happen, but then again considering the source, I wouldn't have taken that prediction seriously anyway.

Detroit still #1 dfence doing it right for me,Prayer missing 2 fg NOOOO killing me for points in fantasy football.If Staffoad can get the passes to the receivers we will possibly be going 14-2 as we should be 5-1.Still I see Detroit going long way in playoffs YES I said playoffs and I have them going to SB !!! If Detroit can do this to Saints next week it will be a sweeter game.!!!!!

I have a feeling Prater will be money for years to come. I like this signing, thanks Denver!

Now to just avoid the Tiger-itis where big-names have failed to live up to expectations (Nathan, Soria, Veras, Fielder...).

Forget it. Prater is the new Lions kicker. He can't do any worse than the ones after Hanson's retirement.

Hell, just get Hanson back, he could probably still make it from 50 yards in.

Looks like no Megatron this week.

Sign Prater and be done with it. Lions originally signed him as an undrafted FA in '06 - but then they had that guy named Hanson who was MONEY.

First it was the Detroit Tigers with a horrible bullpen and now its the Detroit Lions with a horrible kicker.

The Lions just find every which way to lose a football game. So frustrating.

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.
