    Should be a good matchup week 1. Cant wait.

    Lions have had a lot of talent at speed positions on offense for a few years now. Their problem is elsewhere.


    Stafford, despite putting up some crazy numbers, has made a lot of big mistakes at big moments.

    The defense, particularly on the backend, has been really bad.



    and lastly ,while they have good individual talent in the trenches they haven't been able to play to that talent level as a group. When they lose they get outmuscled and pushed around.

    The Lions offense would be a great test for the re-stocked and improved Giants defense.

    That Dline is scare as well. They got some questions in the back 7 on defense, but picks like Kyle Van Noy could make that change quickly. They're adding alot of playmakers on defense to the fold. If Slay plays good, they could be above Avg defensively to go with that beast Offense. Larry Warford is gonna be a 5time probowler or more. You heard it here first.
    That's why I wanted Gabe Jackson. Similar skill set and our online would have gone from a weakness to a strength. Oh well..

    A offense that now includes Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate, Eric Ebron, Reggie Bush, Brandon Pettigrew, Kris Durham, Joique Bell, and of course Matthew Stafford. They built a solid Oline as well, and made a sick pick last yr getting Larry Warford in RD2. I had said he was a 1st rd pick and probably just as good as the other highly ranked G's as well, and he has been. They obviously got other pieces including Reiff and drafting of Travis Swanson. THey are alittle weak at RT potentially, all though LaAdrian Waddle was another deep sleeper I liked last yr, so I obviously can see him playing at least solidly..

    Then on Defense, they got a starting line of J.Jones, Fairley, Suh, and Ansah..lol Jesus! Palmer Tulloch, and Levy aren't a bad LB trio and they not have added Kyle Van Noy as well. I'm not crazy with there Secondary but Darius Slay has time to step up and they still got Mathis and Houston.

    Overall, the Lions could be big surprise this yr.
    I agree. They are clearly on a mission to win.

    First play, Eli is sacked, striped and Ziggy returns it for a TD.
