Look what one great spark can do for a team . . . 1998 Vikings.
Great pick up.
The 1998 Vikings were a far cry from the 2007 Lions.
Look at what the 98 Vikes had to build upon.
In 1997 the Vikes went 9-7, made the playoffs (for the fifth time in six years) and beat the NYG in the playoffs.
1997 was also the year of the famed Brad Johnson to Brad Johnson TD pass.
Cunningham came in and had his best season ever
in the NFL.
Robert Smith and Cris Carter were at the top of their game.
And then we added Randy Moss.
Now look at what the 2007 Lions are build upon. The Lions finished 3-13.
They didn't play in the post season, for the seventh straight year.
Their biggest offensive star was Kitna.
The only thing they added was CJ.
Sorry, but that isn't enough spark to ignite anything.
They would have been better with the #17, a pair of seconds, and a third (not to mention next year's picks).
