exactly...this is pretty much the only realistic scenario that the Lions make it (making the assumption that the Lions win out)

I don't think it's likely that the Falcons lose out. They are a 6 point dog this week @ NO but I think they will be favored in the final game of the year (Carolina at home)

Carolina beat the Falcons already this year. Panthers are hot and beat the Vikings and Rodgers Packers.


It is likely the Falcons lose out. Bucs just missed a FG to tie last night

home game vs. the Panthers with a playoff birth on the line. My money would be on Atl. I'm not a huge believer in Cam Newton. A coin flip game at the very least.

so it's not unlikely if it's a coin flip

Plus Atlanta has some nice wins on their resume. You never know if a team lays an egg VS a bad team if it continues. They have a good enough team to win both games.

10 years ago I would have been happy with a chance at a playoff. How things change.

Yup. Lions should have a least 2 more wins this year. Frustrating under Caldwell the lions are 4--23 verses teams with a over .500 record. Team plays up and down to its competition. It's just not good enough . Now if we could reel off 8 wins in a row they would build a statue of Jimmy C. In Detroit.
It's like that article about John Gruden and his trade from the Raiders to Tampa Bay. One of his former players said. One Super Bowl win is worth 20 Years of mediocrity, and hell we have had over 50 years of Lions football.

I saw 4 Wings cups, 3 Pistons championships, and 2 Tigers ' world series. A couple Michigan Panthers titles, a Michigan Wolverines championship (football & basketball). Go further you could add the Detroit Shock.

Lions stink.
