Detroit Lions Strike Gold This Offseason!

Derek GlauchContributor IMarch 15, 2009

OK, after I woke up this morning, I went on the computer and started laughing my head off. Yes, I just saw that the pitiful Detroit Lions just grabbed Julian Peterson, a five-time Pro Bowler.

And after I read that, I had to write this article on how the Lions are embarrassing teams with these trades.

Julian Peterson for Corey Redding and a draft pick, I think the Lions won this one. Jon Kitna for Anthony Henry, a starting CB. Well obviously the Lions won this one. The Dallas Cowboys should be crying over this one because of how stupid the Cowboys management was.

Besides all the winning trades the Lions made, they picked up some really good players too. Phillip Buchanon, Maurice Morris, Bryant Johnson, Grady Jackson, Cody Spencer, Daniel Loper, and Eric King. Yea I think Julian Peterson alone is enough to win at least three games.

But you know what, that's what I said about Calvin Johnson last year and look what happened to that prediction.

But without further ado, I give you my prediction: The Detroit Lions go undefeated and win the Super Bowl!!

Now if your done laughing your head off, I'll give you my real prediction: The Detroit Lions go 8-8 and finish in third place in the NFC North (better, eh?).
