Detroit's second-year running back Kevin Smith, who just endured an 0-16 season if you recall, used his personal blog Smith34.com to make an eye-opening prediction.
I won't make a prediction about how many games we're going to win, but I will say this: We will definitely make the playoffs this season.Well, there you have it. Between the Matthew Stafford selection, the recent signing of hometown boy Larry Foote, and the new regime of Jim Schwartz, the Lions faithful are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But it sounds like Smith is drinking a little too much of the Kool-Aid.
Last year we didn't play a lot of football. We gave games away as soon as we went to practice. This year everybody wants to win, we have new players and new coaches and a new attitude.
It's going to be a long ride, and there are lots of sleepless nights and lonely days, but if this team can all work toward a common goal, we can make it happen.
Of course, prior to last year, his first in a Lions uniform, Smith hinted that he thought Detroit would go to the Super Bowl -- so at least he's taken it down a notch.
