Oh yeah! Let me check my list… Undefeated preseason; scratch that off, consider it done. I mean, the preseason is SUPER important and everyone brings their best ideas and super secret plays to the field for all to see. Everyone knows you need to put in 110% and give it your all to win pointless, worthless games.
The bottom line is that preseason is about talent evaluation. There are 20 + guys that are hungry for a roster spot yet will fall short and preseason is essentially an interview for the practice squad. It means nothing. Most teams will not tip their hand on defense, they just run a vanilla scheme and see which 2nd and 3rd stringers tackle the best and adapt to a play the best.
Keep in mind that I’m just trying to put this all in perspective. Calm down. You will know everything you need to know in a week when the Lions kick off the season in Atlanta. The Falcons are currently a blight on the NFL and there is no reason Kitna shouldn’t carve them up like Christmas ham. He should look like Chris Weinke when he had to come in for Delhomme and this guy just tore apart the defense. I won’t mention what team that was against.
These first Four games are VERY winnable, so c’mon Lions. Who wants it more? It’s yours to take right now, just get it done.
