    Been a long time, and after a lot of pain and humiliation. Didn't back into it either, they went out and earned it. Kudos to Mayhew and Schwartz, pretty good job to go from where they were 3 years ago to where they are now.

    :D

    I have a buddy of over twenty years, a native Michigander and a life long Lions fan- he is in HEAVEN :lol:

    They better pull this off.

    No…

    They may not have backed into it, but there was a period there where they didn’t seem very interested in making it.

    I was impressed. I thought the Chargers were going to do another of their late-season runs and win the game, but the Lions just destroyed them.

    Everyone talks about the Packers, Saints and Pats being able to put up so many points that they can afford poor defense, but the Lions can put up some points as well. I'm not going to say they will beat any of those teams, but they can hang with them scoring-wise, so you never know.

    I thought the same thing, expected a much closer game. I'm already ecstatic, anything from here on out is gravy. LOL, hopefully the team doesn't feel the same way, you can't be complacent in this league.

    They were certainly inspired Saturday against the Chargers. And good for them. It's been a loooooooong time coming for us Lions fans. It's still a stretch to be thinking SB in my opinion, just hoping they win a playoff game or two to build on for next year.

    And to all my many Bears fans friends...better luck next year!!!

    I wouldn't count on that. The Packers have nothing to play for, while the Lions clinch the 5th seed with a win but could, I think, drop to 6th if they lose and the Falcons win.

    Pride runs deep in Green Bay. But then again, we know the Lions are a dirty team now... don't we?
