    Unfortunately, Mr. Flintstone is arguably the best coach the Lions have had in the last half century. How pathetic is THAT??? I

    Even the Saints eventually won a Super Bowl. It seems like it would be more difficult to NOT even be worthy of being in a SUPER Bowl (let alone winning one) since its conception than to actually be invited to one. What are the odds I wonder. Nobody else ever managed to go 0-16.

    Well, the fact that they are the only NFL team in the red is mind boggling. Plain and simple: the Lions will not win anything until the Ford KLAN relinquishes ownership.

    Well, the Eagles sucked especially last year (after I cursed them) but at least their owner seems like a very decent human being who is at least TRYING his best to win. He is always there talking to the media, showing up at practices, taking accountability, etc. When was the last time anyone heard from Ford regarding his team???

    Megatron deserves better. How long is he locked in for?

    Lions are rookies at taunting etc. Cause they been beaten down for so long. The great Raider teams passed down intimidation so its still a part of they're mystic. The Black Hole is still a terror!

    The Lions had a really nice preseason. You've got to take it with a dump truck full of salt, but still...

    Week 3 is the most important of the preseason because the starters play a lot and they humiliated the Patriots that week.

    Can they win the NFC North. It would be nice to see them finally get a victory in Wisconsin.

    I'd like to be positive Darth, but I've been around BillLaimbeer too long, but Stafford comes crashing down this season.
    Team Psyche is too fragile for any downturn, and like last season...we'll be losing as fast as Sunday's appear...once the players give up.

    4-12 may be too optimistic.............

    It's easy for ME to be positive about a team I like but don't lose sleep over one way or another.

    I will take the over on that line. I think 6 at the absolute worst. Best is 11.

    The first game at home vs. the Norseman should be a good indicator of what u got.

    I disagree. Eagles have no defense so they win around 6 or 7.

    I don't see the Lions winning 3 or 4.

    I think time will tell, but we have a better coach. I think you've got better star power and a better team, overall. Eagles will have their hands full beating the Leo's and it is at our place. The Lions just need to keep their heads straight.

    Stafford probably over Vick

    McCoy probably over Bush

    Calvin easily over D. Jax.

    I don't think either team has much depth.

    Eagles have no secondary. Lions not great but can't be worse.

    Both 4-12 last year although Eagles made more changes.

    Yeah, I don't think Eagles win three or more than the Lions.

    I know why the Eagles failed miserably last year. Still scratching my head on the Lions.

    It will be fun to keep track of.
