They have lines for preseason games? Uhm....that seems beyond ****ed for a line to be that high in a preseason game esp when dealing with the refuse to ever lose preseason game kitties. Id bet the house on it.

Re: Detroit Lions 2009 Season Thread

BTW, I just found this thread today and will definitely be participating daily.

Been a diehard fan since 1989, when I was 6. (Barry, duh) I live in Vikings/Bears fan territory so it hasn't been easy.

I'm super excited for this season, a 6+ win season will be a success. So excited with the direction we're going with Schwartz and the offense. I was pretty disappointed with the Stafford pick at first just because I hated him in college (go gators), but everything I've read about him from training camp has made me do a complete 180.

If the O-line is at least serviceable the next 2-3 years our offense could be scary. Megatron is clearly a top 3 receiver in the league, everything I've read says there's no doubt Stafford is a franchise QB. Kevin Smith came on strong 2nd half of last year and it sounds like he's looking even better this year. Pettigrew is quite the physical specimen and highly touted but haven't seen much of him since his quad injury.

As for the D, plz plz plz let Delmas pan out as advertised. Our secondary is so soft we need him to exceed expectations. It's too bad Bullocks was put on IR, he showed a lot of potential when healthy. LB's will be fine, DLine is going to be meh. Let's hope Cliff Avril continues improving because he was very solid last year.

Cliffs Notes: I'm effing stoked.

What sites do you guys visit for Lions news? Any good blogs?

This is going to be a terribly rough year. Even if they get a few wins and play way above expectation, there's still about .005% chance they make playoffs.

Re: Detroit Lions 2009 Season Thread

I was actually kind of scared that they might be not LOL bad and get like 6 wins this season...I think they'll wind up up in the 1-4 area and should get a top 5 pick.

I cannot wait to see TAYLOR ****ING MAYS in a Lions uniform. Him and Delmas back there just head hunting omggggg.

I realize we aren't going to draft WR, but the joke reminded me how bad our corp is after CJ.

I figured that out the next day, before I bet on it heh.

Have only watched the 1st quarter of the 2nd game. Stafford looks a lot worse this time. Lol @ our receivers starting though. Do we have 10 guys injured? Also our defense looks WORSE.

Well to be fair, the starting receivers are going to be at best our 4th best receivers with Calvin, Bryant Johnson, and Dennis Northcutt starting. Stafford did look worse, but he's a rookie and I think now Daunte will be starting the season. Our defense did look bad, but the main problem is the defensive line. We didn't get any pressure so the Browns' receivers all did double moves and beat our secondary. I thought our linebackers did decently, but our d-line needs to improve for sure

Re: Detroit Lions 2009 Season Thread

We're obviously better than the Colts. Outscored them, outgained them, out TOP them. All that. And the run d looked presentable. Looks like it's going to be a good year boys.
