Are you ready for some football?

The NFL season kicks off tonight, and the Lions season kicks off on Sunday. I’m uncharacteristically enthusiastic about football this year, because the Lions actually looked pretty good last year, and they did so with their first (and second) string quarterback(s) missing a lot of games. I went out on a limb at work today, looked at the schedule, and predicted an 11-5 season for Detroit. So… you heard it here first. The league’s only 0-16 team ever is playoff-bound. Here’s hoping the Superbowl is a rematch of Game 3 of the preseason. 🙂

    If the Lions make the playoffs, I’ll be very surprised. They always start off strong, but then the Tiki of Doom kicks in, and before you know it, they’re fumbling and scrambling their way to last place

    But that’s exactly why I’m optimistic. They went 4-0 in the last 4 games last year. Beating some teams like, oh, the Packers (who went on to win the SB) and Tampa who was fighting for a playoff spot… Weak start and strong finish is so un-Lions-like…
