2011 NFL Schedule: 5 Reasons Why the Detroit Lions Deserve To Be on MNF
Finally some NFL news that isn't about mediators or the draft!
The 2011 NFL schedule is set to be released tonight at 7:00pm, and for the first time in a decade the Detroit Lions have a chance to play in a prime-time game.
And with the way the Lions finished the season last year, they deserve it. Honestly, do we really want to see the Redskins on MNF again?
Without further ado, here are five reasons the Detroit Lions deserve to be on Monday Night Football (or at least Sunday night.)
1. Ndamukong Suh Gives Quaterbacks Nightmares
Seriously, this guy hurts people.
Just ask Jake Delhomme.
2. Matt Stafford Might Play

Maybe they should let him wear that red jersey all the time.
Or at least flag defenders anytime they go near his shoulders.
3. Kyle Vanden Bosch's Eyes Look Even Scarier at Night

Especially when he's got the matching blood on his nose.
Not the kind of guy I would like to be tackled by.
4. People Fear the Schwartz

In the words of the great master Yogurt: "Never underestimate the power of the Schwartz!"
I bet he would even wear those fancy shades to a night game.
5. The Return of the "Fire Millen" Chant

Somehow Matt Millen got yet another job!
Well, if there's anything Detroit Lions fans are good at, it's getting this guy fired.
