It's so close, yet so far. They bumbled their way through the last few games. Could have easily taken a huge lead in the division by beating even one of the Steelers, or the Tampa Bay Bucs the last two weeks. Instead they demolished Green Bay for their first Thanksgiving win in 9 years. That sealed them with all the tiebreakers in the division. Sadly, they still only sit at 7-5. A record that Chicago isn't too far from, and even Green Bay isn't completely out of it.
This is the Lions we all know. We can't be optimistic because we all know that 7-9 and 11-5 are both possible with this team. They have the talent to run the table. To beat any team this year actually,b ut they are just so damned stupid. Huge win today, but I'm not going to get too excited just yet. They have a way of making us not have nice things. Basically always. Don't even need my storage for skis this year to head to Lambeau and hope that we can not get laughed at in December this year. We already are done with Green Bay.
