The Detroit Lions are team I will definitely be watching next season. The offensive should be explosive with Matthew Stafford, Calvin “MegaTron” Johnson, and now Reggie Bush. Who wouldnt want to watch this combination of NFL stars? The offense looks great on paper but I am interested on seeing how it all translate to the field. The team should a lot of promise in 2011 after starting off the season 5-0 and ending with a 10-6 overall record that landed them a playoff berth. The team faced a lot of distractions throughout the 2012 season but I look for the orgnization and head coach Jim Schwartz to clear things up and get back on the winning side of football.

Players to watch in 2013: Matthew Stafford, Reggie Bush, Ndamakong Suh

Betting NFL favorites in the 2013/14 season

The Baltimore Ravens have only just claimed victory in this year’s Super Bowl and the speculation has already started about who might come out on top next year – with the odds on the favourites already being announced at sports betting sites. Betting on the NFL season is unpredictable, just like any other type of sports betting, but the odds at least provide those wanting to give it a punt, some information to guide them. The current favourites for the upcoming NFL season are the Denver Broncos, who have odds of 7-1 to win the next Super Bowl, but then it should be remembered that they were favourites to win this year as well, before Baltimore saw them off in the opening playoff game.
Thus, the Broncos may not be that great a bet after all and, aside from the fact that being favourites is no guarantee of anything, most NFL betting fans will know that these kinds of odds don’t offer the potential for much reward. Another team that is also rated at 7-1 is the losing finalists of this year’s Super Bowl – the San Francisco 49ers. The Super Bowl saw the 49ers outplayed for much of the game by a superior Baltimore side, and the San Franciscans struggled against the Falcons during the NFC Championship match – suggesting improvement would be needed. The Ravens meanwhile have odds of 12-1, which might seem long odds for the current champs, but then they were 22-1 last year and went all the way.
What all this proves is just how hard it is for even experienced NFL watchers and betting fans to get it right. Few expected Baltimore to win this year, and few would have seen San Francisco’s fight back coming either, which means that some fans might prefer to get their fix of NFL and betting elsewhere. The NFL themed slot games, for example $5 Million Touchdown, at online casino sites like MobileCasino.co.nz offer a mix of genuine NFL interest (including reel icons featuring tackles, kicks and throws as well as that $5 million maximum jackpot) and gambling in a way that is a little less risky than trying to figure out which team will win the Super Bowl! And if fans are looking for a break from sports altogether there are also the usual card games you would expect to find in any casino including the most popular of them all, Poker. Maybe a little break from the sports altogether will refresh your mind for next season’s betting!

Close Call

Suh deflected a pass in the 4th quarter that turned out to be huge. It allowed the Lions to score 13 straight points and defeat the Eagles in Philadelphia.

Keep It Down to a Dull Roar

Ah, the Lions. They’ve been the punching bag of the NFL for the past decade now and things aren’t looking any better. Matthew Stafford and Co. will give it another shot. Maybe he can conjure up something halfway effective with Calvin Johnson, who has yet to achieve his full potential in the league. Kevin Smith has proven he can be effective when he’s healthy. Rookie Jahvid Best out of Cal could prove to be an effective second option as well.

Like any other year, the Lions will go as far as their defense will take them. That seems odd to say but it’s true. The Lions were dead last in the league in yards and points allowed per game. Their pass defense is dreadful. Their rush defense will get some help with the drafting of Nebraska hoss Ndamukong Suh. Still, he alone win’t serve as the antidote for this poor excuse for a defense.

The Lions once again will finish dead last in the NFC North with a record of 3-13.

Detroit Will Not Get Out of the Cellar in 2010

The NFC North is all about Brett Favre. If Favre plays this season for the Vikings, It will be a tough race between the Vikings and Packers. Do the Bears and Lions have a better team then last season? Maybe they will compete for a wild card spot… read on to find out.

4. Detroit Lions: The Lions are known to be the worst team in football ever since Barry Sanders after the 1998 season. The Lions had a very successful decade in the 90’s, making the playoffs six out of the 10 years, thanks a lot to the help of Barry Sanders. What will it take to make this team good once again? They have a young potential star quarterback in Matthew Stafford, a very good running back in Kevin Smith, probably the best wide receiver in the game in Calvin Johnson and they have a new tight end in Tony Scheffler. All these players are top of the line, but, their defense is still terrible. Everyone knows that defense is important to having a successful team in the NFL and the Lions still have a long ways to go in that department. They did draft Ndamukong Suh to help their defense out, but other than him the Lions defense still has a lot of holes. The Lions may be a little better due to the addition of Scheffler and Suh, but they will still let up a ton of points. The Lions may outscore a few teams, but not many. The Lions will improve by one win this season with a 3-13 record. At least they are improving every year, just very slowly.

Lions Face Difficult Decision With 2nd Pick

The Detroit Lions have the 2nd pick in Thursday’s NFL draft, and they face a difficult decision. Believe it or not, the Lions 2-14 record was actually a major improvent on their historical 2008 mark of 0-16. The Lions were actually competitive in a number of games and have something to build on with Matthew Stafford, who at times looked like a star and other times looked like a rookie, and Calvin Johnson who is an absoulte stud. The question for the Lions is who do they take with the #2 pick in the draft. I think you have to narrow it down to two guys, the best offensive lineman in the draft, Oklahoma State’s Russell Okung, and prehaps the best player in this years draft, Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Like nearly every unit on a 2-14 team, the offensive and defensive lines need upgrades, but with Jeff Backus and 2008 first round pick Gosder Cherilus, the Lions are pretty solid at the offensive tackles. The defensive line however, is another story. The Lions ranked 26th in rush defense and 29th in sacks, so their defensive line neither plugged holes nor rushed the passer effectively. For those reasons, Ndamuknog Suh should be the selection. Suh was the most dominant player in college football last season, as he was often double and triple teamed, but was still very productive in one of the top two conferences in college football. Many believe that Suh has the ability to step into the NFL right away and help a team improve, which is something that the Lion’s defense sorely needs. If the Lions take Suh, it will be a big step forward for their defense, as he will be able to anchor that side of the ball for the next decade.

Sims, White, Stafford, Johnson Practice With Lions

Quarterback Matthew Stafford and wide receiver Calvin Johnson practiced today as the Lions worked out for the first time since the Thanksgiving game against Green Bay.

Stafford played through a left shoulder injury against the Packers. Johnson played through knee and hand injuries. Both should play Sunday at Cincinnati.

“Neither guy was 100%, but both of them came out and both of them were able to get on the practice field today,” coach Jim Schwartz said. “I’m optimistic both of them would be without limitation on Sunday – at this time of the year, about as full speed as you can be. Everybody’s banged up and beat up a little bit.”

Defensive end Dewayne White (toe) and linebacker Ernie Sims (hamstring) also practiced. But safety Kalvin Pearson (hamstring) and offensive lineman Daniel Loper (back) did not.
