The Year Of the Detroit Lion?

Will this be the year. Those of us who are Detroit Lions fans haven’t even mumbled those words since the great Barry Sanders left us too many years ago. Isn’t it nice however, many football experts aren’t laughing when they mention the Lions. Our team may not win it all..but should win some.

Most people seem to think the Green Bay Packers have the edge heading into Thursday’s NFL season opener. The defending Super Bowl champions are hosting the New Orleans Saints to launch the 2011-2012 football season. The Saints are recent Super Bowl winners themselves, taking the title in February 2010. However, 72-percent of the respondents in an NFL.com poll believe the Packers, who have the home-field advantage, are going to start this season with a win. Only 28-percent think the Saints will log a victory on the road. The new football season gets under way with tonight’s game, which will air live on NBC at 8:30 p.m. Eastern.
