    depending on their offseason, i can see them winning 6 games. they have a tough division, and play the AFC South? Doesn't sound like a winning combination for a team with the worst defense in the division and worst oline in the division. that usually doesn't win 8 games, let alone 10.

    buuut, i will reserve total condemnation until after i review their draft.

        They've got a chance...but i think they are more of an 8-8 team next year.

        But with that said, if they can land a premier RB, and some solid o-line players...i wouldnt be shocked if it happened. If they drafted a Mendenhall, Nicks etc...in the first 2 rounds, that gives them a good shot IMO.

          I doubt they do win 10 but the NFC north is a crap shoot right now, they'll probably make the playoffs before they win 10.

            I wish I had the effort willing to find the data, but I think any Detroit Lions fans will agree, their defense plays much better at home. Considerably better. I'm positive the stats bear it out, at least in terms of forcing turnovers.

            On the road, they are prone to disasters like the losses to Team Sweden (Philly in their alternate unis) and Washington. Good thing for them the Colts game is at the Luke.

              With that schedule, I can really and truly only see them winning 7 games.

                didn't he also say after the Giants game that the better team had lost?

                  They only have a chance of winning 2-3 games this year... Those teams are Falcons, 49ers, and Texans.

                      I think some people are really overrating the Lions, which is weird to say. We are definitely going to be a worse team this year than last, and the schedule is tougher. We'll go 3-13 or 4-12 in my opinion. Looking at that schedule now, I only see about 7 winnable games. And let's be honest, the Lions only win 25%-50% of their winnable games. We won't get nearly as lucky again this year (sweeping Chicago, stealing one from Tampa Bay, coming oh so close to beating the Giants).

                        I wouldn't go that far, 6-10 seems about where they'll be at for me.

                          Last year he never said they were definatly going to win 10 games. He said with the new coaching staff he would not be suprised if they won 10 games. Thats being optimistic.

                            especially when the rest of the division will pose some formidable dlines this upcoming season. The Bears and Pack will have great dlines, and the Vikings are a DE away from having a great one as well.
                            I don't think Detroit's O-Line is as bad as it looked last year. Detroit was a passing 1 dimensional team and the front five had a lot of pressure on them. I think if they have a good back and the right scheme then the same O-Line will play way better. Think Houston Texans in 2007, same line, no where near as many sacks.

                              It's an issue of semantics. It's just like when Roy Williams used to say, "we should have scored 40 points" when they scored 6. It just makes him look stupid and gives people another reason to laugh at the Lions.
