The Ship is Turning Around

Yes, it is true, it hasn't been the best year in Detroit/Michigan sports this past year.....outside the Red Wings who won their 4th Cup in 10 years.  The Tigers spent a ton of money and it didn't get them very far...especially the pitching staff.  The Pistons made it to another Conference Finals but were beat by a hungrier, stronger team.  Michigan changed its whole coaching staff and didn't get Pryor, so winning games with two backup QBs won't get anyone far.  And the Lions, ummm....let's not go there.  In my lifetime of watching football, I have never seen a worse team.  But I don't blame Coach Marinelli, and I don't even blame Millen, who should have been fired 3 years ago.  No, I blame William Clay Ford.  He has to much on his plate with his Motor Company and needs to sell the team to someone who can focus more on the team.  Maybe Mark Cuban...haha.

But overall I see some great things coming our way.  Michigan will have a new draft class and hopefully a QB that can run Rich Rod's offense.  That alone will add a few more wins.  The Tigers will focus more on pitching this year and it will pay off like it did a couple years ago.  The Pistons look amazing with these young guys and will continue to develop right before our eyes.  The Wings will win another Cup this year.....mark my words.  And the Lions, yeah this is a tough one...but with 3 draft picks in the first 33 selections, it can't get any worse. And if it is Leslie Frazier who gets the job, then I really see some great things coming to the Lions.  Frazier is a defensive guru and should find some of the answers this city needs.

Overall...great things are coming to Detroit and Michigan.  I am glad I will be here to see it.

What would suck more is to be a Cleveland fan and not have seen a professional championship since 1964....if you were alive then.  I mean here in Detroit we have won 9 professional championships in the time you have won 1, 1964.  So come on guy, Cleveland/Ohio is the joke of the sports world.

Loved the comments.  And yeah I agree with you...depending on Illitch's bankroll....I would love to see a little more "Little Caesar's" at Ford Field. 

And yeah I like Leslie Frazier a lot too.  He is a strong and dedicated coach...which is what we need.  I do like Jim Schwartz as well....but I am really starting to get excited about Jason Garrett.   I know we should go with a defensive guy....but boy is Jason Garrett a strong force on offense. 

And we are both right on the Red Wings.....they are the team to beat.

A-men for Leslie Frazier.  I think that he is best of the Coords out there.  Maybe Jim Schwartz from the Titans.

But hush that talk about Cuban buying the Lions, the Mavericks have not won anything.  You know who has?  The Detroit Red Wings.

Could you please beer me Mike Illitch buying the Lions?

The Red Wings will win the Cup for sure, and Rich Rod might win 7 games this year... I hope that many.
