Are they for real?
I will answer this right away. Yes the Detroit Lions are for real. Matt Stafford has come into his own at the QB position throwing for almost 600 yards with 7 TD’s and 2 INT, Calvin Johnson has 4 TD’s in 2 games, and the Defense has played great too. All the Lions really need is for 2nd year RB Jahvid Best to really get the running game going and the Lions will be very hard to stop. With Stafford playing outstanding, Calvin Johnson making the great catches, Nate Burleson as a solid #2 guy, Jahvid Best at RB, and Brandon Pettigrew and Tony Scheffler this team could very well make it into the wildcard spot and maybe even give the Green Bay Packers a run for their money at the division title.
