The lions become a good team. You're all welcome.
Wooooooh...Lions playoff bound!
I moved to Chicago and NOW they're good. figures.
At least you still get to watch them, I joined the Army and the Lions make the playoffs. I go back to Fort Leonardwood Jan 3rd and will have no freaking clue how they are doing. Oh and the worst part about it... My flight leave Metro airport at 5:30, so I will be missing the Sugar Bowl as well. Sucks Sucks Sucks Sucks Sucks.
this. is. awesome. playoffs baby!
Festivas miracles abound!
Damn we have come a long way!!!!!!
With the Lions making the playoffs and Michigan beating ohio!! 2011 was not a bad year!! Merry Christmas all!!
The lions making the playoffs and michigan beating ohio hasn't happened since 1997!
any idea who we'll play in first round?
Hopefully we get the Niners
I'm holding out hope for playing the cowboys. I think we would have a lot better chance against them, rather than a 49ers team that already beat us once.
might be a better opponent but I think the Lions might be motivated taking on the niners again after what happened last time.
From my perspective the most likely opponent at this point appears to be the NO( if SF holds on) and SF if they don't. If they beat GB next week(and since that hasn't happened in forever I'm not holding my breath), then it's more likely they play the NYG/Dal since Atl is likely to drop the game to NO. Now my dream scenario as a Falcons fan that has about a .1% shot of happening is that if Atl wins out and NO loses to Car in week 17, then Atl wins the NFC south and would host Detroit as a 3 seed.
So by my best guestimate:
Dal/NYG winner: 24.9%
it would enable me to drive the 90 miles north and see the Lions play!
If the Lions play at New Orleans in the playoffs, I will have seen two Lions games and one Wolverines game within one month in my neighborhood. Not sure what i did to please the football gods.
These post-season games are huge for both teams.
It'd be the Giants.
But, that's based on the fact that the Lions are 10-5 while the Falcons are only 9-5...need them to lose to NO Sunday night. And probably the Lions winning at Lambeau (unless Atl loses 2).
To the Saints is a stretch; and if the Pack win tomorrow, the Lions would b playing for position vs. a team just trying to avoid injuries against a team that stomps their players. I'm not sure Aaron Rodgers back-up is insurmountable.
I have no passion for the Lions, is that ok?
I mean sure it's not a moral flaw or anything, but it does lead to the question as to why you posted in a thread about them.
So happy to see the Lions in the playoffs! Last time they made the playoffs I was 5.
wow making me feel old. at least you don't remember the heartbreaking runs in the 90's
i was living in my last incarnate
I was six
I was five too the last time they made it
...a bit John Phillip Sousa, yes.
...and have never experienced the Lions in the playoffs. I only started watching sports in 2001. I'm glad to call myself a TRUE Lions fan!
they will blow it in the playoffs
Man you know the Lions have arrived when they attract haters on the board.
Who said the Bears were on the upswing and the Lions on the downswing?
they came from 0-16 to the playoffs in 3 years. At this point, there is nothing they can do that would blow it or ruin this season. So don't be an ass.
But I am happy for all of the Lions fans on this board! Congrats!!!
is the franchise.....congrads lions u earned it......
Congrads come from EL, we don't need them here tonight.
I love this quote from Schwartz. "There's going to come a time when we don't celebrate going to the playoffs - It's not going to be tonight"
Hell yes. Go Lions. Austin 3:16
Long time coming ..GO LIONS !!!
Hopefully there will be more partying over the next several weeks!
let's make a run.
Being a Lions fan here in San Diego, all week I've had to listen to the local slappies talking about how the Chargers were going to pass all over the Lions DB's (which I have to admit I was kinda thinking too), especially after just last week the Chargers destroyed the Ravens Defense. Anyway, after so many dreadful seasons as a Lions fan, it is SO TREMENDOUS that they even made the playoffs! Go BLUE, and Go Lions!!! Make a little noise in the playoffs!
Best game of the year, besides the MERDA of Tebow.
LIONS!!!!!!!! Packers are going down next week.
know with the undefeated thing out the window and the Lions clicking they may just repeat last years feat at Lambeau.
