Kitna "What I meant was..."

"Lions QB Jon Kitna repeated his spring statement of last year and this year that anything less than 10 wins will be a disappointment. "Our expectation is, we will be disappointed if we don't win 10 games because that will mean we are not in the playoffs," Kitna said. "I can't make it any simpler than that. Anybody who says that's not their expectation level is unfortunately not very much of a competitor." -- Detroit News

Ok Lions fans, here we go again.

It's not easy being a Lion's fan but some of us have stuck through thick and thin.

Although, the way this quote is written, I see Kitna's point.

However, no matter how he said it we all remember what this phrase cost last year.

I start the season every year with optimism. I have to. They've got some new faces and maybe one or two of them can help improve the team.

Perhaps one year (soon?) I'll be on in the front seat when y'all are jumping on the bandwagon.

I believe that suffering through mediocrity is what makes winning that much better when it happens. Good luck.
I only watch the Lions on Thanksgiving Day. Then again that and the Super Bowl are the only pro games that I watch all year- but I do understand losing and the desire to win.
By the way, thanks for adding my site to your links.

You're welcome (fwiw seems no-one comes here)

Most years that is the only Lions game I get to see. I live in the Pacific Northwest-so it's the only televised game I know for sure I'll get.

I don't know about the Lions this year. Perhaps third in the NFC North. Minnesota has a solid team and the Packers are still the team to beat.

Are you blogging here exclusively or do you still post at Fox?

If you read some of the comments on fox the 'curse' may have been lifted

I am doing both. Otherwise I'd have few comments.

Some of what I put here is NOT on fox.
