The Cafe is usually a place where fans of all denominations can meet together and exchange thoughts, rumors and humor. Heck, they even allow a few Cardinal post every now and then! But what leaves me feeling slighted is the lastest Cafe poll: Which of these teams had the best off-season so far?
There is no mention of the Lions. While no one expects them to contend next season, I think they have made some great strides in trying to turn around a team that has been the worse in the league over the last 3 years. They upgraded their staff with Jauron, a noted defensive genious-BRILLIANT!
They addressed areas of weakness with the influx of talented F/As who are in their early prime (26 years old)-BRILLIANT!
They are in position now to draft to fill other areas of need-with their draft history SACRY!
I could see them going 7-9, or even 8-8 next year, which would be quantum leaps for them. Yet this has gone unnoticed by the Cafe pollsters! I'm not saying that the Lions had the best off-season, but how about a little recognition. Sorry, just had to get that off my chest. Love the Cafe, and most who have suffered through my posts realize I post with humor, never anger. Just though it funny how the Lions get no love.
