ESPN.com’s Dream Team of Tomorrow nominees included 10 Green Bay Packers, more than any other NFL team. The Detroit Lions were also well represented, but when editors asked me to predict the division’s dominant team in three years, there wasn’t much choice.
During the course of the offseason it has been very interesting to follow the Detroit Lions’ Super Bowl odds. Just last year they were complete long shots at best, but a good finish to the 2010 season has resulted in the Lions’ odds getting much better, especially over the course of this offseason.
Zac Snyder got hooked on the Lions after his dad took him to a Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990. The show put on by Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson that night was only surpassed by what Zac could do with Barry in a game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
