I definitely think we have everything in place to make a run. I do think we come up short though. Our core is still a little too young yet and there is not a lot of playoff experience on the roster. I see us winning our division and likely heading to San Fran in round 2. That would be a hell of a game and if we somehow managed to win I could not see them turning around the following week and going into Philly to win.
I can see SF either heading to Detroit or Philly (hopefully Philly) in round 2.
Lions win 13 in the regular season…Absolutely manhandle some poor schmuck Viking-ish team in the wildcard (provided we dont get a first round bye), then we travel to Philly to face them after they knock the SFrz out.
Lions and Philly are my favorites to go the the NFC title game…with SF behind them
IF…SF and Philly play each other in round 2, that really helps us.
Being a Lions fan is very frustrating. Many of us will have to decide whether to attend the first playoff game, the NFC Championship, the Super Bowl, the championship parade or the draft in Detroit. Most of us can’t attend all of them and we will have to make some hard decisions.
I might have to get a suger daddy. If you see me in public holding hands with an old man, mind ya business.
