although there has been much talk about the Lions improving and possibly winning 5 games,i'm a huge Lions fan and i don't see it..Besides playing the regular division schedule we also have to play the NFC East and the AFC East and i just don't see where that schedule will generate 5 wins..it would be nice but it's unrealistic..Go Lions!!!!!

I think the Lions can win five games, including a split against my Bears.

Yes, I think the Lions can do it, its gonna be tough in that division but the Lions are on the rise people get ready, they will finish 3rd ahead of the Bears this year.....

I just looked at the Lions schedule and I see 5 or six winable games on there. There is always one you lose thast you should win, and another you win you had no business winning. I think 5 is a real possiblity.

One of the worst things about being a Browns fan is that it's so hard to make fun of fans of any other team.

I had a whole slew of Lions-insults to throw around and then I remembered that they beat us last year.

I could see the Lions winning 5 games. but the schedule is pretty tough.

I can defiantly see the Lions winning five games this year. I think they will finish in third place ahead of the Bears. I think the Bears will blow up with Cutler and Martz as well as Julius peppers being this seasons Albert Haynsworth. The Lions always play the Vikings tough and the Bears tough. They have struggled against my Packers especially on the road. However I think they will play everyone tough. I like the moves they have made and their coaching staff. They are building a nucleus of good young players and have a quarterback and big time receiver. They may challenge the .500 mark. If not, they will surely make a leap next season if their is one.

I think five is the perfect number to "expect", while maybe 7 is something to look at optimistically.

Five is a good number.

I'm not sure they can pull it off. I lived in Michigan for 13 years, and something always seems to screw them up. I'm also not sure thier defense will be improved enough to slow teams down, so they will end up throwing a lot, which will make their offense predictible. I think 5 is a good goal for them, but I think they'll pull up just short.

Of course they will win 5 games!

2010-11 Season: 2 wins
2011-12 Season: 1 win
2012-13 Season: 0 wins
2013-14 Season: 1 win
2014-15 Season: 2 wins

See? They will win 5 games! These are all projected as best-case scenario.. so it could take a few more seasons....

without looking at the schedule, I think they can. Bears aren't anything to write home about and the Lions have an up and coming offense.

I thought Stafford would be a bust, but he showed me something last year.

I think 5 is a solid prediction. The Lions woes against the NFC West are legendary, but I think we go 1-3 against them.

I think we may blank the Bears (more I think about, the more I like Martz to Chicago. He is going

reek havoc on team chemistry).

If we can split with either Minny or GB that gets us four. Throw in the Bills & Bucs for six.

Then trow in the annual "we were up 48-24 with 12 minutes to go and we let the ______________ score 27 points in the 4th to beat us" game and that knocks us back down to 5.

I do prefer to make fun of teams that are unquestionable better than the Browns and also, the Raiders. As long as Al Davis is around, the Raiders are a good target.

Don't worry, someday the Browns and Lions will be good at the same time and it will be just like the 50's again.

I hope so! That offense should be pretty solid and able to score on anyone. Hopefully that D line steps up big!
