I remember seeing a commercial on the NFL network saying to watch the NFL season and had a raider fan saying we are 4-0 in the Preaseason and then said "playoffs", little did they know they were going to go 2-14. lol
Exactly, the preseason is for evaluations and you shouldn't read too much into any of it. In fact, bad teams often times do better in the preseason because they are actually trying to win like the Lions did last year. They're doing this to fool their fanbase into believing that they have turned the corner. Good teams, on the other hand, typically couldn't care less. I remember one of the years that the 49ers won the Super Bowl they didn't even win a single preseson game. I think the year was 1988, but I couldn't find out for sure because no one seems to keep preseason records online - that should also tell you volumes about preseason games.

They went 13-3 won the first 7 games pounded the 9ers 41-10 lost the Super Bowl to Indy 29-17
So, by that logic, we should be happier being 0-3 and purposely lose the last pre-season game to be 0-4. That way, we have a chance of going undefeated in the regular season.
What REALLY matters is that our starters produce out on the field. Neither Hill nor Smith has been impressive, that's trouble. We do expect Gore/Coffee even Sheets to carry this team along w/ our OL doing a good job run-blocking. We have problems at pass-protecting and pass-rushing so far this season, so far we've gotten what... 1 sack (Russell had to fall down for us to get that) while allowing what...about 8 sacks, terrible!
So, who cares about some loser team going 4-0 and then getting a big ZERO in the win column, our players/coaches are no where near as pathetic as the Lions are, although they got some talent. There's talk around here and in sports articles that we are contenders for the NFC West Division and Playoffs are possible this season. I haven't heard any talk about that for the Lions nor their "star" rookie QB carrying the team.
