Yep.

It's called maturity.

The Lions need to put together a few winning seasons and they'll be "regulars" in the post season.

Predictions for Sunday?

I'm thinking troubles with Newton early with the proper adjustments. No question about it, I think the Lions will be looking for redemption after the debacle in Chicago.

I think you're right, they are ready for a win, hopefully without too much drama! Unfortunately for them, they are on the radar, justified or not, and refs will have an even closer eye on them. Maturity, or lack there of, is very important.

It's a MUST WIN ballgame.

I'll predict that I won't be surprised at 2:00 pm AZ time.

I can't count how many Thanksgiving games were blacked out.

Nobody cared.

When they lose now, they're ticked off. I like that chip on the shoulder.

That chip makes 'em play better ('cept last week vs. the Bears), IMHO.

The Lions are still a few players away from winning the NFC Norris Division, but at the very least, they're much more competitive......it wasn't that long ago that we were 0-16........
Good post.

It's important to note that if the Lions are in the AFC West they would win that division easy. Packers are currently the best team in football and the Bears are climbing the rankings too. A couple strong seasons and they can keep building off that.

P.S. I'm still trying to figure out if Cutler or Stafford looks less like an NFL QB than the other. I see Stafford take his helmet off and it's like I'm staring at some highschool senior in wood-shop class.

Stafford does have a young, baby face look about him, don't blast me, not meant in a bad way!

I like them both, Cutler seems more like a gunslinger to me and Stafford is just plain young, he'll come along I think. Cutler is 5 yrs. older, same age as Aaron Rodgers, I think.
