I'm pretty sure there are a couple more of you out there somewhere...

I know it seems odd to see a Lions fan hanging out on the west coast. But I have been a lifer and have been in hiding since our franchise decided to take a vacation during the Millen years. I'm actually genuinely excited about this season though as I really believe that the team has some tools to start heading in the right direction and think a 6 to 8 win season is likely without any serious injuries. Stafford looks healthy (For now) and should improve in his second year, Burleson will take pressure off of Calvin, Scheffler is a solid TE and should add impact and I'm really freaking impressed with Best. Now I'm not saying he'll be the second coming of Barry Sanders, but this kid's fast as hell, has moves and can move a pile when needed. I'm still a little concerned about the O-line as always, but I think that offense will move the chains this season.

The defense will be solid on the line behind Suh and Vanden Bosch (A little worried about Williams starting next to Suh), but I think they will still be at a real disadvantage with the linebacking and d-backs. I hope that the line is able to give enough pressure to make up for the weaknesses behind them. I just don't see a significant "overall" upgrade on the defense and fear that the offense will be under pressure to put a lot of points on the board.

But hell, I'm still excited about the season for the first time in close to 10 years...

I actually like the Lions this year. They are improving slowly but surely

LTFG Im here with you!!! the Lions are going to be much improved this year and as long as Best stays healthy and the secondary can hold up we could possibly win up to 8 games. Problem is this preseason our DBs looked terrible. We will give up alot of big plays and will be in alot of shootouts but at least we have some weapons now.

Detroit still needs help on the O-Line, and in their secondary on defense.

Their Linebackers are so-so too. I do like Peterson though.
