"Last year, we were primed and ready for some playoff action and were crushed by shoddy play in the last few weeks."

1-6 down the stretch, if I'm not mistaken... Extremely disappointing. I had predicted 9-7 for this year, so the Lions have already exceeded my expectations!

Now to just win one more game against a collapsing Bears team to secure their Playoff destiny.

Last year, we were primed and ready for some playoff action and were crushed by shoddy play in the last few weeks. Seems to be creeping back into the team again these last couple weeks but we managed to pull off the wins as opposed to last year.

Coach Caldwell needs to light a fire in that locker room and get the team back in early season mentality.

LOL, Service66, yep, all my life the Lions have been just bad, sometimes mediocre, and sometimes actually pretty good. But they always have the knack of disappointing in the end. Always.

That being said, as a lifetime fan . . .Go Lions!!

LOL!

"If, after that, if they are a wild card, well they have lost the last six of those they were in, and are 1-10 in playoff games, since their 1957 Championship win against Cleveland."

Yeah... Decades of Playoff futility has that affect on a fanbase.

4 straight correct predictions (5 if people take my word for it on the AZ loss)... I should have joined a 'pick 'em' league!

As long as I am here, I fully expect the Lions to disappoint in the end again. They should beat the Bears, and lose to the Packers. If, after that, if they are a wild card, well they have lost the last six of those they were in, and are 1-10 in playoff games, since their 1957 Championship win against Cleveland.

Not that I am cynical or anything like that.

As LM said, just win out. Should be a win against the pathetic Bears, but winning in frigid Lambeau will be a much tougher task.

ATL certainly made it a game - give me hope for the Lions in a few weeks that we won't get blown-out and might have a shot at winning for the first-time in forever @ GB as well.

Good win by the Lions, I'm 3 for 3 ;) .

The kidd's prediction - 41-6. Actual score: 34-17, margin of victory off by 18 points.

Way to get it below 20 when correctly predicting a victory! ;)

As a Detroit fan, I find it interesting that there is somebody out there so pessimistic about the Tigers (who have been the model of consistency regarding making the playoffs and making deep runs in the playoffs after a long a fruitless stretch) yet seem so rosy each and every week about the Lions - who have 'never' given us as fans hope...

Strange.

I thought you were an amazing soothsayer? You did correctly predict that the Tigers wouldn't go to the World Series (which every team has a 93% chance of each and every year)! ROTFLOL!!!

Just going back through the kidd’s ‘predictions’ thus far this year that I missed while he was on my ignore list…

- “I have Detroit winning 34-9 (against the Falcons)” – Actual score: 22-21, margin of victory off by 25 points.

- “Detroit wins 33-6 (against the Dolphins)” - Actual score: 20-16, margin of victory off by 23 points.

- “Detroit should have a better game with the 8-1 Arizona Cardinals next week and come away with a big win.I have Detroit winning 23-17” - Actual score: 6-14, margin of 'unsuspected loss' off by 14 points.

- “I say they razzle and dazzle many as they win division and walk through playoffs they should be 14-2 this year.”

Then corrected midway through the season to;

“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.”

I guess you could also say it was just as possible for the Lions to 'possibly' go 16-0. I suspect another ‘clarification’ will ensue after the next game in Lambeau :P LOL – and I thought I was a Lions ‘homer’! If the Lions win the Division, it will mean they have won in GB for a 12-4 record. I would never be so happy to have been wrong! :)

Me too. I'm already very happy with the improvement in the Secondary, we just need to get the offense clicking consistently (hard to do with two of our best O-linemen out).

I don't think the Lions will be able to catch GB either, even if the Pats help us out and beat them today...

Instead it was "Same Old Bears"! Once Megatron got his TD, the Bears' D got torched and Cutler became his bad old self. It was only a matter of time.

Lions should be in good shape for a Wild Card spot and will probably not catch Green Bay.

After losing their last two games and going down 14-3 early in today's game I started to think "Same old Lions"; but they came to life and made it look easy but again it was the Bears.

I don't think they'll go too far in the playoffs but I hope I'm wrong.

The result was expected - Lions struggling on O and playing a hot Pats team at home.

Sad to see a veteran like Raiola do something so stupid and classes. One more reason why I don't like the undersized Center - he deserves to be fined.
