The team in the NFC North that will surpise everyone is . . .

8 replies 1 views Edited Jun 17, 2008

The Detriot Lions.

 

I see them finishing in 2nd in the division and barely missing the playoffs. They almost beat the Cowboys last year and they have improved. They drafted a Tackle with their first round pick to help their OL. They drafted a RB who doesn't have much speed, but he still produced at UCF. They drafted a pretty good DT from Florida state who will help stop the run and replace Rodgers. Calvin Johnson can only get better and he's projected to have a breakout year. With Johnson, Williams, and their star TE on the field their passing game will be very difficult to stop.

i continue to say this every year. GET A QUARTERBACK. Jon Kitna just doesn't cut it. They should start Drew Stanton.

I mistook Furrey for a TE. My bad. Ferry isn't a pro bowl WR, but he's very underrated.
