    Anyone who is taking the Lions lightly is making a big mistake. They are a playoff tested team and coming off a big win.

    But, no one is giving them any respect in spite of the fact that they just won the Grey Cup.

    I hope that the Patriots aren't looking past them this week.

    Oh ok those Lions scare me too. But the Detroit Lions scare me the most when you have to play them at home on Thanksgiving but on any given
    game can't take anyone lightly this is the time of year where the spoilers
    really come out and knock off the favorites.

    They do apparently have a well-rated passing attack (but a lousy rushing one) so it is a little concerning. However, I believe the Pats already had their "looking past this team" moment against the Jets.

    Focus on stopping Roy Williams. That's about it.

    Kidding aside, while I'm confident they'll win, here's the one thing of which the Pats should beware: Keep in mind this is Mike Martz' Super Bowl. He's been slapped around so many times by BB that he's had this one circled on his calendar. Except him to pull a few tricks out of the hat.

    even if mike martz drew up the greatest gameplan ever he'd still be hamstrung by his crappy players. let's assume he accounts for one TD all by himself; that makes the final score 31-7.

    If it is we need to give San Diego to Mexico, and take Tijuana and Juarez in exchange.

    In Detroit, you have to go south to get to Windsor actually.

    Judging from their game versus Miami, Detroit will be completely one dimensional on offense, which won't cut the mustard against us.

    They'll probably make a couple of big plays, but even as a born pessimist this is the least worried I'll be about a Patriots game all season long.

    Compare to New England, our defensive passer rathing is 68.8(#5 IN THE LEAGUE) and the pats are #2 in yards per carry (3.44), so on paper we are much better, but then on any given Sunday.
