Post Question
Iam in an $1,000 dollar eleminator poll. I have a side bet with a friend he says I will not take the Lions. Iam thinking real hard of taking them this week. You guys that post on here are smart football guys. Iam asking for your opinion, would i be crazy for taking them this week? Let me know.

I think I might save the Lions till they face the Bears at home. Green Bay will be like a wounded animal - and you know what they say about them.

What are your other choices?

humm, looking at the schedule this week is going to be tough. Out of the teams you have left I would say I like Philly over Carolina (another wounded animal though). Too bad you used the Jets cause I really like them over the niners.

The Lions do look like one of your better choices. Who would have thought the Lions over the Packers would look like one of your best bets when the season began - wow!

Thats what I thought


The only reason I would take the Eagles is because they are coming off the bye week

First, welcome to the Lionbacker board bobv!

After watching the Falcons offense struggle against the Lions last week they don't look like a good bet against anybody. Vick doesn't look comfortable in the WCO. Their only touchdown came after the Lions made the Falcons rekick a punt in which they pulled off a trick play to keep the ball, later converted a 4th down, penalties, etc... They didn't look very good.

Heck, they only beat the pitiful Cards by a score of 6-3. Atlanta looks in a funk to me.

thanks for the welcome......this is a great site.....i've been a die hard, passionate fan of the lions for 37 years and to top it off i am a die hard red sox fan as well (what a combo).......i'm from the northeast coast............talk about dedicated......i hear you regarding atlanta but i think tomlinson is slightly different away from home and atlanta has something to prove at home.....i think vick is going to have a monster game and i think their defense is going to keep tomlinson in check.........i think there is something behind the line being 6.......somethings up in vegas.......good luck because there are tough picks this week...

Lions and Red Sox - that is really hardcore. So far so good for both.

Good luck against the Yankee's, who I hate about as much as the Cowgirls... :twisted:

I agree with the wounded animal theory but, Favre has always had a difficult time in Detroit and the 12th man really likes to get on him. The D is playing strong and Mooch has bragging rights on this game with his hometown aquaintences. Look for Detroit to try to take another step forward instead of the usual two steps back after one step forward.

Lions to win.

I had a feeling bout Atlantas fruad status and I have a good feeling about this game...plus I might quite possibly be there and they have a damn good record when I am there :D

Thanks to Pablo I made it to the St.Louis game last year and we kick their tails...how huge would 4-1 be??? With 2-0 in conference???!!! From what I hear we could smite GBs playoff hopes with a win :twisted:

It would be hard to bet on the Lions this week. The Pack have always played us tough in Detroit, but their defense is in funk this week. To say they need this win would be an understatement. I still think we win, but I wouldn't bet on it, like I would against the Bears.

Lions by 6.
