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


You're delusional if you really think that. I'm definitely not a Packers fan, but they're the best team without a doubt. They're offense can't be stopped and Rodgers shreds every team. Teams can't run on them. They're passing defense is very weak, but they make plays when needed.

Also, there's no Lions haters and there never has been. A team needs to be successful to be hated...the Lions have never even been to a SB. They haven't had a plus .500 season since 2000. :lol: Maybe they had haters in the 50s when they actually won.

I'm happy for the Lions and before the season I said they're this year surprise team who'll give GB a serious run for the North.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I like to see teams like the Lions rise from the ashes, but I wouldn't get over confident yet. My Bills were 4-0 in 2008 and ended the season at 7-9. For what its worth, here is how ESPN see it [link].

Bears had 9 false starts :lol: Felt like I was watching a Seahawks home game.


Exactly...

And without two hugh defensive gafs.... the Bears may have actually won that game.

Yep...that's what I was going to say. If it wasn't for the OT loss to the Cowgirls the Niners would be 5-0 as well. However I'm not holding my breath. But it beats what they were last year and last game they looked VERY sharp. I think if they play that same game vs the Lions it will be a good match up. Lions look good this year and it's nice to see a team that has been in the dumps for so long looking good after 5 games. There is a lot of season left though guys.

Lets Go Niners!!!! And F the Raiders!!!

I noticed the "S.E. U.S." team (Braves) didn't even make the playoffs this year...

Nor did they deserve to...and also good I don't much care for them anyway.

Hmmmm, let me tell you about best records, don't mean a thing till you got that ring! :nono:


Yeah... the Patriots still hate having that 18-1 season, where the 1 loss was the Super Bowl... Percentage-wise the best season since the undefeated Dolphins' Super Bowl season... but no trophy for the Patriots.

IF you ask them... they would much rather the year they had 5 losses but won the Super Bowl than the one they went 16-0 and then lost the championship.

I do a lot of business in MI, and especially Detroit. I don't know anyone up there who thinks the Lions are going undefeated this year. All the best to them, but it will be quite humorous to review the OP's posts at season's end :lol:

Well, I've been a Lion's fan my whole life and am extremely happy to see them doing well. That being said, I'm also a realist and still think the Packers have a better team right now. That, of course, could change.

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.


I'm glad you finally have something to cheer and brag about. All my family from Detroit and the downriver area are ecstatic. I think it may be a bit of "irrational exuberance" though. Time will tell, as it always does.

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.


Im glad you are so confident. I am not as confident as you though. Even though I think the Saints are a pretty good team this year I do not think they are good enough to get passed Green Bay. If Green Bay's offense goes downhill a little then I think you got a shot. As long as they still maintain a high powered offense I dont really see the Saints winning.

Sorry... as much as I hate to give props to Green Bay, they by far right now are the best team in the league.

Didn't the Lions have to come back against the Vikings (Which are one of the worst teams in the league)... late in the game?
Didn't they need any extra QB to help them come back against Dallas ?

And as HORRID as the Bears played on Monday night... They need two completely blown defense plays (the two monster TD's) and another (the 50 yard run)... so solidify the game? Heck with out the last one... the horrible Bears right now, were still in that game.

So while the Lions are much much improved then they were.... Week 6 is just starting... So much left. As this league has shown, avoidance of Injury is key to the season. If the QB or Megatron go down, the Lions come way back to the middle of the pack.

(Same is true if Green Bay looses Rogers)


Exactly what I was thinking. I like Detroit this year. I think they really seem to gel together well this year. I watch their game pretty much every week even though I am a Colts fan. That being said they can not continue to come from behind and think they can realistically win every game.

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.
...

I think your analysis of the Lions completely correct. The Lions have typically been a class act, even though poor Matt Millen was definitely not the man for the job. (And I think he was a better TV dude before his time with the Lions.)

Earl, I think the Packers are still a good team without Rodgers. Not nearly as good, of course, but Flynn is coming along very nicely. Ted Thompson has some thinking to do about his contract and soon. :)

Cheers,
Tom

Come again?

Not to rub it in... (OK, maybe just a little ;))

I believe my 49ers just pulled off the "upset" that you said no one in the NFL could. I'd say that's bad news for the Lions, because the Packers (the 6-0 Packers. Oh, so much for that "best record in the NFL" for the Lions) are a hell of a lot better than my 49ers (who are a hell of a lot better than I thought they'd be this year!)

I might argue that in some ways the Lions and 49ers are similar teams... Young players trying to grow into their skills...

I can probably name more talented players on the Lions than the 49ers... but that doesn't mean the 49ers don't have some good players.

I'd say the coaches are a big part of getting things going in the right direction at both of these places.

I am kind of surprised, though, that the Lions lost today... not that I think poorly of the 49ers, but I didn't see this as the week the Lions would stumble because I figured they would be prepared and the 49ers wouldn't surprise them.

Well, I wasn't going to crow, or even mention the winover the formerly best team in football, but it's already been broached.

In a big sense, a pretty poor game for both teams. Waaaaay too much officiating. The head guy seemed positively pissed off at SF- here I'm not talking about the quantity or quality of the calls against the Niners, but the body language of the white cap. Over the top. If a neutral party looks at this, I'd love to have his -or her- opinion.

Truthfully, I think you're right in your evaluation of the Lions. I actually like the Lions, but I couldn't resist a little ribbing aimed at the OP (all in good fun, of course). The Lions are good, but I don't see them getting past the Packers this year. Next year, I think, will be the year for them to make a run @ the Pack.

I didn't like the 49ers chances this week. Lets face it - 49ers need to run to be successful, and the Lions D-Line is pretty good. And I think the advantage goes to the Lions receivers over the 49ers secondary, as well.

I like the 49ers, but I didn't think that we could see this sort of improvement in such a short amount of time - with no training camp, even. It's been a fun year, so far. It's been a long time with nothing to cheer about for NFL fans in the Bay Area!

I couldn't resist bringing up the win. :D And just a little crowing. :)

I didn't notice the Ref's attitude towards the 49ers... but you're right - pretty poor game. I thought there were a number of calls against both teams that were questionable. It's hard for either team to get anything going when the officials are so involved.

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?
