It's the Lions, we still have no idea what we are going to get out of anyone. Anywhere from 5-11 to 11-5 wouldn't be that big of a shock. We will probably finish somewhere between there right around 8-8.

A lot can happen in the off season.

That said, it appears they will have a pretty tough schedule.

Healthy Rodgers and a great MN team, I say 3-3 in division.

Probably lose to the NFC south team

Lose at Dallas

NFC west should be better. 2-2 or 1-3

AFC east should be weak outside the Pats. 3-1

Looks like another season at or near .500

Anywhere between 7 and 12 wins depending on draft, free agents, Health, ect, ect, ect.


GET OUT THE Honolulu blue Kool-aid! !!!!! NEVER GIVE UP 2018 IS OUR YEAR !!!!!

Lions should change their colors to Black with Honolulu blue, silver striping and silver helmets.. We need a new identity!!!!!

Lots of tough home games. Lions need to figure out how to win tough home games. They were oh so close this year with Atlanta, Pittsburgh and Carolina.


Patriots instead of Steelers, Rams instead of Carolina 2017, Carolina 2018 instead of Arizona, Seattle instead of Atlanta. Jets instead of Browns.
Same division opponents but now face Rodgers GB (maybe). Vikings were very healthy and Lions were very injured on Thanksgiving. That could change for 2018. Need to win 6 or 7 at home


Away at Buffalo and at Miami instead of at Baltimore and at Cincy. A little easier but not a cakewalk


At 49ers and at Cards is much easier than at Saints/at Bucs


Same three road division games but possibly play Rodgers


at Dallas should be tougher than at Giants


Were Rams and Carolina a flash in the pan? Will Brady win Super Bowl and retire? Could look much easier even with Rodgers coming back

Close matters for the future as next time the Lions could win the game with a play or two. They could beat all of the Rams, Pats, Jets, Seahawks, Vikings, Packers, Bears and Panthers at Ford Field if they fix the pass rush, get a healthy Oline and add a power back.

Things that Quinn and 8th most cap room can take care of. Zettel and C Washington the backups. Bring back Ziggy. Draft Dline

Tion Green and another power back. Go after Hyde in FA

Healthy Oline can happen. Or at least not all of them getting hurt like Decker, Wagner, Swanson and Lang and backups did this year

Still a bright future for this team
