... did a pretty good job of pointing out the weak spots on the Lions, Falcons, Broncos & Bengals ... not bad for a 'sheila', .

... in a pass-happy league where the only the only two other QB's to have 5k seasons are the #1 & #2 guys in the game, yeah ... I'd say so, but she probably could have been a little more excited about it, eh?. In fact, Stafford had such a good season, I'm gonna' start calling him, "Matty Tsunami" or something like that ... the "Ice" nickname is already taken, .

Without a pass rush and with the loss Curtis Lofton, the team's leading tackler, neither offense nor defense will be able to compete adequately to win the NFC South or even notch a wild card berth.
I really like this part!

How about "The Staff of Ord"?
Seriously, though, Stafford had a heck of a season last year, and to call his performance just "solid", it's a bit on the understatement side.

... I expect them to, but it's going to take developing a run game and a little self-control (on & off the field) in order to avoid game suspensions & untimely personal fouls/penalties ... taking care of these areas of concern would go a long way in compensating for a less then average defensive backfield, IMO.

The Lions have a history of self-destructing, so I don't hold candid reviews of my team against the bloggers ... much, , and they still have a lot to prove.
