The 2011 Detroit Lions have a chip on their shoulder, and why not. After years and years of being the L.A. Clippers of the NFL, this young team seems ready to take off and finally do some damage in the NFL.
So how does Detroit stand up in the Las Vegas odds world to win the 2011 NFC?
According to Sports Ticket Soup, the Lions are currently 30/1 to win the 2011 NFC Title. That could be a nice pay out at the end of the season! This 30/1 long shot has a chance to pay off.
Was there really a better 6-10 team in the NFL last season? It may sound cliche, but this team should have, and could have been 10-6, but don’t tell coach Jim Schwartz that. Schwartz won’t stand for it. All he wants to talk about is right here, right now.
With Ndamukong Suh leading the way, the Detroit Lions defense should be one of the NFC’s best. Fans around Detroit seem to be more excited for football this fall then they have been in years!
“I can’t wait for the Lions to start.” Anthony C. of Warren, MI. said. “Schwartz is building a winner here. We will no longer be the joke of the NFL.”
To win the NFC North division, the Lions will have to de-throne the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers, which is much easier said than done!
The Lions have inked a few free agents, including DB Eric Wright from the Cleveland Browns. You can keep up with all the latest Detroit Lions news and free agent moves here.
