Title: Lions 2016
Post by: UAWBigDog on September 08, 2016, 03:34:27 PM
What?!?! No Lions talk from you diehard fans?!?!  Well, fellas ESPN has predicted that the Lions have a less than 10% chance of making the playoffs.  They also predicted that they will be lucky if they win 4 games this year and said there is a 55% chance that would happen.  I think I could agree with that because I'm going to say again as I have for so many years that they will again be no better than 8 and 8.  Yeah.......I hope I'm wrong......real wrong like I've never been before.  But, with what I observed in the preseason, I almost have to agree that.  I hope I'm wrong........ Chime in and tell us all what you think.  I think since I got the go ahead from the Doc to get back on the water that I'm going fishing before I watch the Lions.  I got a radio on the boat so I'll be listening in and hopefully the fish won't stop biting because I'm listening to them.  But in the meantime........M GO BLUE!!!!

First off, the pre-season has very little to do with how the team "looks". They were 4-0 the year they went 0-16. Those games are designed for the coaches to figure out what and who they have to work with. Will they have a good season...nobody knows yet. By the way, that "writer" on deadspin (thanks rick) sounds like he's lost a ton of money betting on the lions the last 58 years. Ha Ha! Don't gamble kids...
