Record: 7-9
Kitna is a Top 8 Fantasy QB (not real stats fantasy stats) and plays all year.
Drew Stanton tears his ACL before the season. Done for the year.
Leading Rusher: Tatum, not with many yards though after splitting with Duckett and later losing his job to KJ who returns in week 9.
Calvin: 68/926/7

5-11

Kitna plays all year unless injured, second straight 4000 yard season.

CJ- 40-450-7, used effectively in the red zone but Furrey has another 75+ catch season.

Bell leads in rushing, Duckett leads in TDs, Jones comes back but is ineffective, Bell keeps his job.

Defense will have a better pass rush, meaning a slightly better overall defense. Pinning our hopes on Lehman being healthy all year and Lenon being an effective MLB will be a downfall, along with getting torched in the secondary as usual. Kennedy just isn't good enough in coverage in the cover 2, and unless Alexander and Bullocks are in on passing downs, we're going to be hurtin'.

Predictions? To steal from Clubber Lane "I predict pain"
Kitna will get hurt and the Lions have no QB to take over. If they are stoopit enough to let Stanton try a play he will find out first have how much harder the big boys hit and go out with either a concussion, rib, shoulder, or knee injury.
The O-line won't gel in time to protect Kitna or open up holes for Bell. Bell will only total 600yds and be no more than a bit player in Mad Martz O scheme. Duckett will bloat to 400lbs and , ala the Bus, call himself the ocean liner. Abandon ship!
KJ will be ineffectual this season and probably get hurt. I don't see more than 400yds from him.
CJ2 will catch 60 passes for 700yds and 5 TDs
Roy 70 for 850 and 3 TDs
Furry 20 and 200yds before suffering a season ending injury
O-line will suck, with or without Woody, who will show up from the fatfarm and either bloat up to pant sagging levels or get hurt in the first quarter of the seaosn. Raiola and Backus will continue their sub-par play and we learn first hand why the Raves and Broncs discarded their O-linemen.
On D, well here is where we really see the impact of the new brain trust. Coach-em-up Marinelli finds that there are too many who don't want to play: Redding & Rogers most notably, and too many who cannot play: Edwards, the injured LB corps, the whole secondary and every single project player we drafted this year.
This D will threaten to break the records for most points allowed and a new FF strategy will be created: cycling players so that you start as many people who play the Lions as possible.

There is no hope, fellow suckers. Lions will do well to win 3 games, given their schedule, silly draft, projected injuries and no friggin D. 3-13. Fret not though, laddies, someone else will suck too so Millen will not get his first overall #1 pick in the draft. Raiders again will fail to win enough to overtake team incompetent and draft first again.

Record-3-13. Whoever said 8 wins pass the bong this way! :-b

Kitna plays all year, top 5 fantasy Qb due to the lack of secondary the Lions have and playing from behind every game.

Leading rusher- Bell 300 yards due to the Lions having to pass almost every down playing catch up.

Leading Reciever-CJ2, Millen will want the ball force fed to him to put up stats so the league will end the laughter of drafting wide recievers every year.

Defense is horrible. No secondary what so ever. Start any QB you can get your hands on fantasy wise against the Lions this season. Shaun Rogers leads the team with 3 sacks before getting injured mid way through the season but still ends the season as the Lions sack leader. Sims has a great year tackle wise chasing down everyone as they pass the porous Dline.

Pro bowlers-Kitna, CJ2 and Ernie Sims.

Top 3 pick again for the Lions next season! Hooray!!

Record: 5-11
Rushing: Bell (900yds, 5TD), Jones (500yds, 3TD), Ducket (250 yds, 4TD)
Receiving: Williams (75rec, 1200yds, 8TD), Johnson (60rec, 1050 yds, 6TD), Furrey (40rec, 500yds, Broken everything)
Kitna: 3500 yds, 25tds, 23INT
Pro Browl: Williams, Sims, Johnson(Due to someone elses injury)

This is going to be a season of shootouts ;-) The offense will have many big games this year but the lions DEF will be the worst in the NFL. Having no secondary will hurt them badly this year. Most games will come down to the last two possesions.

Calvin averages 17.5 yards per catch? I'll take it :-)
