With training camp starting this week, it's the perfect time to start thinking about the one question on the minds of all football fans: who in the name of Lombardi is going to win this year's Super Bowl?
Why not the Detroit Lions? Well, WHY NOT???
Detroit Lions - 2013 Record: 7-9
With a star-studded offense of Calvin Johnson, Matt Stafford, and Reggie Bush, and the imposing defensive duo of Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley, the Detroit Lions have one of the most talented rosters in the NFL. This is what made their 7-9 record last year so hard to accept.
The Lions made some key changes in the offseason, hiring veteran head coach Jim Caldwell, signing WR Golden Tate away from Seattle to help take some of the burden off Calvin Johnson, and drafting a Jimmy Graham-clone in the form of TE Eric Ebron.
Every year a team that missed the playoffs the previous season becomes the hot playoff team in the current year. We say this year that team will be the Detroit Lions.
Post a comment and let us know why we're horribly wrong; and check back for more Super Bowl contenders as training camps begin.
