Scanning the Savanna

After the Detroit Lions’ 20-13 victory over the Minnesota Vikings, here are three issues that merit further examination:

The Lions have talked playoffs before. Jon Kitna predicted 10 wins in 2007. Kevin Smith said the Lions would make the postseason a year after going 0-16.

But Monday, as players hauled garbage bags full of belongings out of the locker room on Day 1 of an uncertain off-season, talk of making the playoffs next year for the first time since 1999 didn’t seem that farfetched.

Detroit Lions Safety Louis Delmas is dodging charges for an incident involving a gun, but that’s not the case for his brother.
