Is A Weakened NFC North Really A Good Thing For Lions?
He went over all the teams in the division and got to the Lions, "..and Detroit is Detroit," he said.

I agree with him. Who doesn’t? The Lions have been terrible this season. I can’t see them getting into any playoff contention.
But if they were to win Sunday against the Bears - and, granted, that’s a big "if" - their 1-3 record would put the Lions right there in the division race.
Now is that good news or bad news? My contention is the sooner the Lions look to the future, the better.
Is that fair to the team? Or head coach Rod Marinelli? Not sure. I only know the Lions have let people down to such a great degree, and presented so little hope, it’s difficult not to feel that way.
- Five reasons the Tigers will contend next year: Curtis Granderson, Placido Polanco, Miguel Cabrera, Magglio Ordonez, Justin Verlander. There is still very strong core there.
- Obviously, I don’t think they should deal Mags. Well, unless it’s for a front line starting pitcher. And that isn’t going to happen.
- Is Brandon Inge the best .203 hitter in the history of baseball?
- Michigan’s Stephen Threet is a better quarterback than most people are giving him credit. So is Michigan State’s Brian Hoyer.
- I usually have a Heisman Trophy vote, but at this stage, I see no clear-cut favorite. I see Javon Ringer as having a fighting chance. Just wonder if he can stay healthy carrying the ball that much.
- College football’s most underrated team is Texas. The Longhorns will prove it a week from Saturday against Oklahoma. It will prove to be the game of the year.
