Thanks for updating.

I'm surprised at how many predictions are still alive.

As a Lions fan, the season sure has been filled with plenty of drama. From miraculous comeback wins vs. the Cowboys, Vikings, and Raiders to the frustrating losses vs. the Niners and Falcons. Stafford looking brilliant and lost (finger was an issue you think?). Megatron's dominance and how he is inexplicably not thrown to at times. The RB position troubles. Suh. Kevin Smith back from his couch looking like an all-pro for a game. I could go on.

1 week left. Will your team earn you some of my $Sand?

I feel so much more comfortable knowing the Chiefs have to lose, in Denver, this week to hit my prediction

I feel so less confident knowing my prediction rests on the gilded shoulders of the Tim Tebow

The sand would be nice, but I only get it if the Raiders lose. I'll take a win and the shot at a playoff berth! It's been a while and the future is not bright.

That comes to 9-7... but I will officially say 8-8 since I think some of those wins are dangerous games and chances are we drop one.

Gotta go with the gut.

I was hoping I would have been off by one game and the Lions would have finished 11-5 but alas it was not to be.

Me too. Although it's cool we both nailed it. :thumbright:

Congrats to the winners. When I get some free time I will figure out the $Sands and send them out.

Alright, just paid everyone. Winners collected $S1000 from me. Congrats to you all :thumbright:

Also paid TD Celebration $S500 for his help with the updates. And threw a bone ($S100) to hankrip for predicting the firing of Jack Del Rio. :lol:

Thanks for playing =D>

Feel free to give a breakdown of how you arrived at your prediction. I'll get it started.

Detroit Lions: 10-6
Stafford is poised to explode and the D has gone from laughing stock to above average. The Secondary still worries me as they are not very deep, speivey has to play very well imo. Another point of concern is at RB. Best is talented but leshoure's injury killed our depth ( he was turning heads in camp and was looking to be better than advertised-I really hope he makes it back 100%). Harrison hasn't looked all that great so far and while brown is speedy and great out of the backfield, he's not keen on running it play after play. I also changed my opinion of backup qb Hill. I think he's more than capable of running the O. The key player who absolutely cannot get hurt is Calvin Johnson. I keep hearing stafford is the key player- not true. It's megatron. He is the key to the lions success. Green bay will win the division I suspect, but I really think the lions will be in the hunt for that last playoff spot.


Let's see:
Stafford exploded alright.
The D was not above average. Not good enough yet to compete with the high powered o's in the league.
Running back concern was legit. Best/leshoure sure woulda been nice down the stretch.
I stand by my Calvin being the teams MVP. He dominated, especially in those comeback games. Just throw it up to him.
10-6 prediction. Yup.
I thought they had a shot at the last playoff spot...and indeed they were the 6th seed.

Next year I'm going to say 16-0 and see what happens :D
