So over at POD the general consensus is that the Pack should be able to win the division next year because of how deep the team is and you know the whole being super bowl champs thing. Anyway we also feel that we should be able to give you all a good challenge for the division and a playoff spot. Most of us feel that the bears were just really lucky this year. (Had the catch been ruled one in week one they would have missed the playoffs altogether) We feel as though we are in position because of our young talent to only get better and be playoff contenders every year.
So I was over at ESPN and was reading an article about Matthew Stafford being able to take the Lions over the hump if he can stay healthy and having the tools to join the ranks of the elite such as Rodgers in the future. The article is Here (I'm a lions fan by the way) The problem I came across was from the fans who were commenting on the piece and I wanted to know if this is how most pack fans really feel or if they were just blowhard bandwagon fans who don't even really know whats going on in the division.

When I read their comments though (the espn posters) they talked about how Detroit has no chance of winning the division or making the playoffs anytime soon because of us having the play you all twice a year and "the second best team in the division (Bears) twice a year)" as well.
So my question to you all is do you all feel the same way or were they blowhards? Do you all still think of us as the dysfunctional Lions of MM's years, and see the bears as your only real competition in the North or do you see us as improving?
