Probably not. But they got everyone hopes up this season. How many games did a lot of us think we were going to win before the season started? Not many. Technically we improved since last season if you look at the record. But nobody expected us to go to the playoffs this year, but that shouldn't make up for the choke job they did in the second half of the season.

I think the Lions will make the playoffs one day. However, I severely doubt they will win a playoff game in my lifetime.

if you guys can revamp that defense and draft or sign a good QB its very possible to make the playoffs within the next 2-3 years.

This is true for 1/2 of the teams in the NFL

You improved up to Nov 4th. You're 0-6 since then. It's not how you start the season it's how you finish.

I may have to alter my previous statement . . . we might not do it until my great grandkids are older . . . it doesn't look promising.

No....But I did save 15% on my car insurance by switching to Geico.

I voted for grankids, but i'm only 22 so i figured i've got a shot of seeing it. The way i see it, worse case scenario is that ford owns the team until he dies and millen the same..Well, ford and millen can only live for so long, both are around 50+, so i would say 40 years would be a pretty good estimate.

At which time the poll will be altered to ask "Will the Lions WIN a playoff game in your lifetime?"

thats a whole new question ill give that 15 years cuz once we loose the first playoff game we're going to hire millen jr. as our gm he'll strip the team down and rebuild for 10 years

You improved up to Nov 4th. You're 0-6 since then. It's not how you start the season it's how you finish.

Improving up to Nov 4th shows improvement over being horrible for the entire year.

Regardless, we were 2 wins away from making the playoffs... and those 2 games came down to the wire. So, as bad as we were this year, we a) didn't finish last in the NFC North and b) almost made the playoffs. We did this with half of a Shaun Rogers, Kitna at QB and absolutely no secondary.

That's quite an improvement.

With the browns finally looking like a contender after years of mediocrity, I feel the lions could make it. Thing is I'm not sure the ownership is interested in playoffs....
