    About three months ago, my Heritage Newspapers colleague Jason Davis predicted that the Detroit Lions would finish 4-12 this upcoming season....

    I forgot all about them losing dre' bly to the broncos.
    That makes me a lot more confident in a sweep.

    So he says we beat 'em twice and he becomes a Vikings fan!

    Sept. 16 vs. Minnesota: A match-up of surprising 1-0 teams, as the Vikings somehow upset Atlanta a week earlier. The talk during the week is how much the Lions improved and how Atlanta lost the game to the Vikings. But Minnesota's defense forces four interceptions and two fumbles in handing Detroit a 27-17 loss. Oh well, can't win 'em all.
    Dec. 2 at Minnesota: Running backs Chester Taylor and Adrian Peterson combine for 330 rushing yards, and recently-named starting quarterback Drew Henson guides Minnesota to a 33-17 victory. Yours truly is seen the next day in his Vikings jersey, and four days later, fans chant "Fire Millen" at the Adrian College-Siena Heights men's basketball game.

    I havn't forgot.
    That is such a huge loss to their weak secondary.
    Thank God Denver isn't in our division instead.

    This was one of the more humorous and upbeat articles almost makes me wanna go get a glass of warm milk and a sugar cookie and dream forward to the football season.

    Dec. 9 vs. Dallas: Somehow, the Lions find themselves up 28-24, but the Cowboys have the ball at the 50 on the last play. Terrell Owens is so far open on the Hail Mary attempt he lays down for a nap. He doesn't wake up in time to catch quarterback Tony Romo's desperation bomb, and the Lions escape. Romo takes a page from Carrie Underwood's book and takes a Louisville Slugger to T.O's headlights.

    "Maybe next time he'll think before he sleeps," Romo says.




    funniest one.

    hahaha. Drew Henson. Well thats a stretch. Possible in some freak way like he figures something out and becomes great T-Jack gets hurt and Bollinger cant cut it or the other way around

    but as a serious question. Is this a joke? I mean its possible and most of the stuff I can see happening but is it?
