Enough already with comparing these Lions to 2008 bunch that went 4-0 in preseason
OK, I’m a patient person, but I am getting sick and tired of hearing, “Yeah, but the Lions were 4-0 in 2008 preseason and finished 0-16.”
Of course it’s true, but it has no relevance to today’s version of the Detroit Lions. Zero, zilch, none.
They are NOT going to finish 0-16. I’ll be shocked if they don’t win more than they lose and find themselves in the playoffs.
Yes, it’s the preseason and no one should get TOO excited, but what we’ve seen is mostly positive. The offense has scored 30 or more points in each win while the defense has allowed a little less than 14 points per game.
There’s room for improvement, although I’m not sure how Matthew Stafford could be much better.
Don’t buy Super Bowl tickets, but forget about 2008. The roster has been totally revamped, new coaching staff, new management. More importantly the attitude has been adjusted.
Please stop with the “yeah, buts” — I just can’t take it any more.
Enjoy the Lions, don’t foul it up with the horrors of yesteryear.
