When Was The Last Time You Saw The Lions And Bills In First Place

For the past 10 years there haven’t been anything good to cheer about in Buffalo or Detroit. Since the great days of Barry Sanders and Thurmond Thomas, these two teams have been obscure at best. Well all of that has changed in 2011. These two teams have finally found themselves in the mix early in the season and neither looks as if they are going to fade anytime soon.

Both are headed by coaches that I personally know well. The Lions are headed by Jim Schwartz who is a feisty energetic coach, who relates well with the players. Schwartz spent some time coaching at my alma mater North Carolina Central University as a defensive backs coach in 1991 and 1992. He was always fun to be around because of his love for the game and his passion about his alma mater Georgetown University.

Chan Gailey was a fixture at Georgia Tech and one of my favorite coaches ever. When he went on to the NFL it was sad to see him leave the rambling wreck. Now he has instilled the fight that he had as a Cowboys and Steelers coach. He has blended the glory years of both franchises into his team and they look like they are ready to hold it down for a while in the leagues toughest division.

When you look at the Lions they are dynamic. They have a pretty good offensive line. A quarterback who can dissect any defense when he is protected and they have the best wide receiver in the game bar none. Defensively they have the best defensive line in all of football and their secondary and linebackers are good enough to do the job in front of them. The only real question will be running back and defensive back for the Lions.

The Bills are more of the same. They have a quarterback who can handle pressure and is very accurate. They also have two dynamic runners and a wide receiver who is a top 5 guy in my opinion. Their offensive line run blocks well and their tight end is a game changer.

Defensively the Bills have arguably one of the 5 best secondaries in the league. Their mix of experienced linebackers and a steady defensive line makes them a contender. Barring injury I can’t see how they could win less than 9 games this season.

I know it’s early but can you imagine a Lions and Bills Super Bowl. Would you even watch? Well of course you would. It’s football, and there is nothing in the world like the Super Bowl.
