We have two Lions on there so far, even though Stafford is almost off the list compared to where he was. His first time on the list he was 41, last year he was 76, this time he was 100. Reggie Bush was voted in at 85. I'm hope Joique makes it on the list this time since he had a good year. I'm very curious to see where Calvin lands. Wed, 14 May 2014 22:55:07 EST It's Draft-eve!

Is anyone going to the Town Hall meeting on 04/14? Thu, 3 Apr 2014 23:28:45 EST A serious Lions fan http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x24148x57308739 Hello. My name is Loren and I a season ticket holder of the Detroit Lions. I support my team win or lose. I went to every single game when they were 0-16 even when my husband refused to go. I'm working now to get the funds ready for the London game in October. My favorite player was Jason Hanson (whom I totally expect to go to the Hall of Fame) and I wore #4 proudly and was very sad when I had to retire it. My new favorite player is Joique Bell because he epitomizes everything that is Detroit...

Mon, 24 Jun 2013 08:28:59 EST Jason Hanson http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x52830645 I'm so sad I read today that Hanson is retiring.

Does the "D" line have what it takes to control Vick and put him on his backside enough to make him jumpy or is he going to have enough time to pick the secondary apart. This is really a must win game because the "Da Bears" are 4-1; we can't start 1-4 and expect to make the playoffs. I have faith in the Lions and the Defense to make Vick uncomfortable and the Special teams are going to have a decent game (no TD's). It's just faith but I love the Lions. Tue, 9 Oct 2012 16:01:20 EST Week 5 Bye http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x50215861 <BR> Well at least the Special teams won't give up a couple touchdowns this week. <em>30</em> <BR> <BR> The boys need to get their heads on straight if they want to turn this around and make the playoffs. This might be the perfect time for a bye so they can get healthy and get ready to play. Tue, 2 Oct 2012 21:50:01 EST Week 4 Vikings @ Detriot http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x50086426 Well week 4 is here Mon, 24 Sep 2012 13:53:11 EST Week 3 Detroit Lion @ Tennessee http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x49984820 Well, what do you think?

Mon, 17 Sep 2012 22:55:38 EST Week 2 SF 49'ers - Predictions? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x49872380 I'm thinking this will be a tougher game Tue, 11 Sep 2012 00:51:41 EST Week 1 St. Louis Rams - Predictions? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x49772920 <BR> I think they are going to have a good game, not great and will win a close one 28-24. I just hope the defense steps up and proves what they can do. Tue, 4 Sep 2012 21:31:24 EST How are the Lions going to do this year? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x49533012 <BR> I think they will make the playoffs and win a playoff game but that's it as long as they can stay healthy and they can get some kind of running game to take the pressure off Stafford. I think their defense looks better than last year, they just need to keep their cool and make sure they don't get too many bad penalties. Sun, 19 Aug 2012 20:06:12 EST Who is going to the Preseason Games http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x49366953 <BR> Hello all, just wondering who is going to the games this year and who is just watching them on TV. I had to give up my season tickets a couple of years ago so I'm stuck watching them on TV. I do like it because of the replays, but the feeling of being in the stands is incredible. <BR> <BR> What do you think?

Tue, 3 Jan 2012 09:34:04 EST What Happened?!?! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x45073252 What happened to our beloved lions yesterday? I knew it would be a tough game with the bears looking for a little revenge for the butt kicking they got from us but we didn't even look like a football team. Hopefully we can come back and win next week and get our ducks in a row for the thanksgiving game against Green Bay. <BR> Any Thoughts? Mon, 14 Nov 2011 10:19:37 EST 4 and 0 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x44399079 Wow! Who would have guessed that the Lions would be undefeated? That was another amazing comeback! Maybe it's time to change the description of this team.

Do you think we can keep it up? I really have high hopes for this season. It looks like we may actually have a team this year. Sat, 13 Aug 2011 10:00:58 EST A Draft for nothing? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x40248069 I can't seem to find many people up for this year's draft, is it just because of the potential for the lock out?

Fri, 19 Nov 2010 09:52:46 EST WHOOHOO GO DETROIT!!!!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x24148x34959831 Hello... I'm new to the team and was SO excited to see a DL team. When I saw professional football never imagined that there would actually be a team for Detroit. I was pleasently surprised. I get crap ALL the time for loving my lions so it's awesome to be in good company. thanks to however started this team. Tue, 22 Jun 2010 12:02:24 EST New to the Team http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x24148x32021488 Hey all! I'm new to this sparkteam! I am a college student going to school in Saginaw, MI. I have grown up a Detroit Lions fan and even when they are disappointing I still watch them. Football is my favorite sport to watch! I also feel loyal to them because I live in MI. Where is everyone else from? Wed, 17 Feb 2010 07:40:02 EST Draft time is getting near http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x31963201 Who do you think we should get with our picks? Mon, 15 Feb 2010 07:09:53 EST Our time of the year http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x31045876 The time of the year is coming where the Lions can be categorized in the top 5 of the NFL. That time is draft time. Who do you think we should draft? I like both DT Suh from Nebraska and McCoy from Oklahoma. I also like the OT Okung from Oklahoma State and to a lesser extent McClain from Alabama. I might give up totally on the Lions if they draft a QB,RB,TE, or WR in the first round. Wed, 13 Jan 2010 10:09:48 EST Do you think.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x29697527 the Lions can do the unthinkable and get 2 wins this season? I thought they would get 3 or 4 wins but at the rate they are performing that seems to be unattainable. Thu, 12 Nov 2009 11:53:16 EST Preseason Game 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x27702209 Have our first game this weekend... anyone going? <BR> How does everyone think we'll do? <BR> Any odds on who our starting QB will be? <BR> <BR> I think we have a chance to hang in there and win it and I think the Rookie will get the start. Fri, 14 Aug 2009 12:34:14 EST Are you buying into...... http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x27471827 Any of the hype that is coming out of training camp? It seems as they are blaming a lot of Marenilli without saying his name(even though I didn't like him either). They are saying the system is a better fit and practice is tougher. <BR> <BR> Are you going to see any games? I may force myself to go to at least one game Tue, 4 Aug 2009 12:16:31 EST Barry Sanders http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x27305226 Yesterday was the anniversary of Barry Sanders hitting the trail and leaving the Lions just before the preseason workouts started... while I understand his frustration of a team that didn't seem to be going anyplace... does it make it right for him to wait until after the draft and free agent signing and then say goodbye? <BR> Anyone have any thoughts about Barry in general or where the Lions could have went with him? Tue, 28 Jul 2009 09:52:08 EST The Draft and vol. workouts http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x26497303 So it seems like the Lions are ready to throw pick 1 under the same bus they've done so many of their picks prior. What do you think... should they stick with the old QB until the new one has time to learn the system and get on track or should they throw him to the wolves (ok the bears, the packers, etc...) in the hopes of improving on an 0-16 season? Mon, 22 Jun 2009 13:33:54 EST With the first pick... http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x24569718 in the 2009 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions choose.... <BR> Well? What do you think? Do they choose Stafford? Do they fill in a hole in the offensive line? Or, do they do the unthinkable and pass? <BR> Fact is, it's a lot of cash to sign that first pick and depending on who you pick, it may not be worth it. If they pass the pick, they can get it later at any time, but... is it something to think about? Thu, 9 Apr 2009 07:27:25 EST Only way to go is... http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x24148x22734455 UP! Hi. I am new here. My name is Brian. The lions should have a good year because the expectations will be set so low by the media. Mon, 9 Feb 2009 10:36:21 EST New Coach http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x21947628 Well we have a new coach , now we just need to see if he does anything with all the resources that he has around him? Fri, 16 Jan 2009 18:28:42 EST New Year, New Coach, New Hope... http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x21484842 It's the start of 2009 and the search is underway for a new coach. While I think it is long past time for this, I also think it doesn't solve the problem. As long as the front office staff remains the same, we'll continue to have some of the same problems. Who do you think the Lions should go after for their head coach? Mon, 5 Jan 2009 08:33:04 EST Another game, another loss, or every snap is crap: http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x20451975 So the Lions have 5 games left and I can't see them getting lucky enough to win one. This Thursday we have the Titans who will be ready to play from their first loss this season... then the Vikings, at the Colts, the Saints and finally the Packers. So tell me, do you see a win in our future or are we looking at 0-16? Mon, 24 Nov 2008 09:07:56 EST First game, first loss http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x24148x18300093 Lions looked decent in the preseason... then of course, the real season hits and our defense looks like swiss cheese. Do you think we can go .500 this season? Mon, 8 Sep 2008 07:52:13 EST New to the team http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x24148x17256061 Hi, I'm Crystal, don't really watch a lot of football, but my Hubby is a huge football fan, and he is turning my daughter into a sports nut too, so I have a feeling I'll be stuck watching more football. I've been to two Lions games, both against Green Bay and both times we won. Maybe I should go to more games!
