Sure, Matthew Stafford is not yet out of the season, awaiting his first body slam. Then we will see what this team and its QB are made of.
I am not buying the high expectations of the season, just as I'm not buying that Monday Night Football is a return to glory for the Lions.
Primetime football is best on Sunday....on NBC, not ESPN.
Sorry ESPN and the tradition of MNF, but that boat has passed. Not just because MNF is now on Cable, but the night features plenty of other viewing opportunities. Also, the announcers and production are just not as good. SNF is the prime football broadcast. They have the players, they have the prime matchups, and they have the talent in the booths.
I'm reading the biography of ESPN's start and losing the SNF to NBC while gaining MNF was not a winning moving. According to the interviews, SNF came with the prime flex schedule and with the traditional MNF schedule, Super Bowl winners and high market teams. MNF is now the old Sunday Night Football.
So we in Detroit should not be acting like MNF is the old MNF.
