Funny how a new coaching staff and a new GM not named Matt Millen can change the attitude so a team doesn't accept losing or expect to lose any more. I've seen just enough of them this year that they don't seem to accept the "here it comes again" mentality of losers in the last few minutes, even after the Son Of Tuck Rule call that robbed them of a win against the Bears early on.

And to start the season 2-10 and not quit (and finish 6-10) speaks well of the coaching staff and the type of players the new regime is bringing in. As a fan, you have to love it when you see no quit in your guys.

I'm not a Lions fan but even I'm cautiously optimistic that this can be a very tough team, maybe even a playoff team, come 2012 or so. Which might fulfill the Mayan Prophecy in December 2012 anyway. <g>
