After just reading your article,I can't help but laugh a little.Yes,I will be the first person to admit that things haven't been all hugs and smiles since millen's tenure as the captin so to speak,but after flying up to detroit and watching the heart breaking loss to the Bears,you know,the team that had the best record in the NFC,I can't help but feel anything but great optimism for this team.If you look at all the injurys to starters and see how competitive they still were,I don't see how you can honesly think things arn't going to get better.
Now,I will leave you with my prediction.At the end of next season,the detroit press will be publishing an article that reads "PLAY-OFF BOUND!!!!!!"The Lions WILL be good in 2007,you can take that to the bank.So you can jump on the wagon now,or you can get ran over!!GO LIONS!!!!!!!!!!
