That team is mostly Megatron and Suh. Without those I don't see them as great. Now you could say that for every team. Pick out their star players and say that's why they are good. But I honestly don't think they have that dominant of a roster. Megatron just makes unreal plays and makes their QB and passing game look better than it really is.

It's a VERY GOOD story for a sorry ass franchise! They went from 0-16 to one of the elites in a matter of 3 years.
Interesting they didn't have a decade long rebuild... Of course they don't have NoWin and SingleBrainCell...
No, they had a 50+ year rebuild.
LOL. I guess it depends how you look at it. If you look long term it is like 50 years.... But if you look at the new staff it's like 2 - 3. Of course Harbaugh is a rookie year coach rebuild. It didn't take him long to do something with the same team Nowin and SingleBrainCell never could....
I have no problem with the Lions getting love but I was listening to DC radio yesterday and they had a guy on there from The Sporting News. He said the Lions were the #2 best team in the NFL (NFL, not NFC) behind the Packers and they or the Pack would represent the NFC for the SB.
Again, I'm happy for the Lions but calling them SB contenders is just plain silly. I'll judge them when they have played a very good team (Niners) and two games against a GREAT team (Packers)
