NFL expert gives Detroit Lions shockingly low chance to win 1st Super Bowl |

“Expert” thinks the Buffalo Bills (10%) and Cincinnati Bengals (9%) have a better shot than the Lions at 8%.

NFL Expert?

I consider 8% pretty good. We still had the 23rd ranked defense in the league last year. It’s certainly within reason.

Lions being in the NFC alone gives them a better chance than any AFC team besides KC. I love the Bengals but they will go as far as Burrow will take them. Bills almost seem like they are doing a cap reset and will struggle to win the East imo.

If I were to say you’re guaranteed to make the playoffs, guaranteed to not have a first round bye, and guaranteed a 50/50 chance in all 4 playoff games. That would give you.

0.5^4x100 = 6.25%

So he’s saying better than that.

A healthy Burrow for a whole season almost guarantees a trip to the AFC CG.

IMO he is the best QB in the league when healthy. Unfortunately he is brittle or has a shitty Oline and may never get the career numbers but give me a full season of Burrows and you can almost lock them in as a potential SB finalist.

Yea I love Burrow as well but he’s still not Mahomes. Bengals are my second favorite team. They are in the toughest division in football and just not sure they can stay healthy enough for a SB run.

I have no problem with this list. Numbers look low but the #1 team is only 10%. DET is #3 out of #12. That’s top 25th percentile for teams who have never won a trophy.

And if we’re being honest, the Bills and Bengals have both been closer than the Lions have a hell of a lot more times. At least they’ve both been and lost.

That said, I’m still out on the Bills. Most overrated team in the league with one of the most overrated QBs in the league (in my humble opinion).

There’s my favorite word. “Expert”.
Does 56 years of devout following make one an “expert”?
Who decides what constitutes, “expert”?
Is there a test that you take?

Bleacher Report and expert are mutually exclusive. I’m closer to being an expert in particle physics than this guy is to being a football expert. I am not an expert in particle physics in case you were wondering.

Further … big difference between being a Lions expert and a football expert. Many of us are world class, top .01% “experts” on the Lions

…meaning…even a football expert isn’t gonna hold a candle to many of us on certain topics

If he is so smart NFL Expert? He would have won enough to buy SI He is no more a expert than posters in the Den. In fact the Den fans could give him a argument pro or con for most teams just based on rosters that he likely doesn’t know.

So many guys out there calling themselves “experts,” that are not even bald. Ridiculous.
