    Detroit Lions are 5-0 with a better division record than the "Superbowl Champion" Packers, meaning they're the best team in the NFL! Where's all the Detroit haters now?

    Too early to start using the divisional tiebreakers. :)

    Besides, the Packers had a 5-0 record before the Lions did, so they are the best! :)

    Reality my ass. You must have eaten some expired cheese, you're delusional if you think the Packers or anyone else can beat the Lions this year. 19-0, Lions Superbowl XLVI Champions.

    Winters,...
    A 5-0 record is impressive, but does not mean "best team", unless the season is five games, and everyone else has at least one loss.

    Where are the Detroit haters? I really haven't seen many to begin with. I'm happy the Lions are back in the hunt.

    Lions also have the highest net points (Points scored minus points allowed), and the NFL's longest active regular season winning streak (going back to last year).

    Actually... it is a good question... "Where are the Lion haters now?"

    Where have they ever been?

    I've been watching football mostly since 1985... and I can't think of a time when Detroit was hated in all that time. I remember when they were famous for starting slow, coach about to be fired, then win a bunch in a row to make the playoffs and all was safe for another year! But nobody hated them.

    Everybody loved Barry Sanders... nobody wanted to try and tackle him, though :)

    Then they became the lovable losers... most people were NOT rooting for Detroit to go 0-16 a few years back. Even their most hated rivals weren't rooting for that.

    Honestly. I can't think of a time in recent memory where there were any Detroit haters.

    There were some folks being realistic... when they were making questionable draft picks and other decisions... but I wouldn't call that hating, since it was proving out on the field.

    I also know a lot of people have really been hoping they would take off this year... if they could stay healthy, a lot of people were looking forward to seeing how good they can be.

    Personally, I'm hoping they and Green Bay run the table up to Thanksgiving. How cool would that be... After years of futility, and dreading the Thanksgiving game that meant nothing... to have it be for first place in the division AND to stay undefeated most of the way through the season.

    As much as I kind of like Green Bay... Detroit is actually doing the same thing as Green Bay... winning the right way with good people that I can't think of anything bad to say about... so IF the 0-16 record-holding Lions could go 16-0, I think that would be pretty cool.

    BUT... I feel like this weekend will tell the tale. IF they make it this weekend, I'm thinking they have a good shot at undefeated (with a possible season split with Green Bay since the Packers are very good)...

    I think the Packers are the clear #1 team thus far... and yeah, it's only 5 games... BUT it's the same team (mostly) that won the Super Bowl + a lot of people back who were out last season injured... so I give Green Bay the benefit of the doubt until they lose.

    I wouldn't be surprised, though, if at the end of the season Detroit is a close 2nd to Green Bay.

    Yeah but our winning streak started by beating the Packers. :lol:

    Packers should quit wasting everyone's time and just send the Lombardi Trophy directly to 222 Republic Drive, Allen Park, MI 48101.

    I hate the Packers but I have to say they are definitely the best team in the league right now. I still think the Saints can beat them though. The turn over and the lucky kick return killed us in that first game and we were still only 1 yard and a 2pt conversion from tying at the last second also we didn't have Will Smith in either (3 game suspension). I'm confident if we meet again the Saints will win.

    That's the way their streak will end too. ;)

    The trophy is already in its 2010 & 2011 location...thing of all the shipping fees the NFL will save. :D

    Hmmmm, let me tell you about best records, don't mean a thing till you got that ring! :nono:
    Even in baseball, where are the two teams with the best records this year? Not in the playoffs.
    Both teams need to lose one or two to make them hungrier for the prize.

    And for the sake of this conversation of current undefeateds - GO PACK GO! (they are my 2nd fav team after all)

    A great story now. For years friends never understood why I never saw the Lions as winners. The last time they were 5- 0 winners, I was all of 3 months old. Bill Ford Sr. and Russ Thomas too many nightmares to forget. Glad to see the Lions winning, Enjoy the season and the ride. I assume that FOX is glad to have a meaningful Thanksgiving game between the Packers and Lions.

    wouldn't you rather have it as 10-0 vs 10-0? Then only one should be undefeated afterwards? showing your (Detroit Lions) true prowess?

    It'd be nice but Packers aren't that good, they won't win another game this year.
