One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


Does close count in games against playoff teams?

If you look at the Lions’ record against playoff teams which was 1-6, there is only one conclusion -- there’s a long way to go for the team that finished the season 6-10.

One positive way to spin it is that the Lions beat the Packers in the final quarter of the season. And that is a bit of a stretch.

But wait a minute, check the scores. Five of the six losses to playoff teams were by 5 points or less -- the only big loss was 45-24 to the Patriots.

Does that mean anything?

We won’t know until a year from now.

If the Lions are truly growing, learning from mistakes and figuring out how to win, they must contend in the playoffs next year.
