Detroit Lions fans, if you were told that last year’s 10-six record and playoff berth “wasn’t good enough,” you would be …
Irate? Possibly livid? Or do you honestly now anticipate the globe following the franchise’s initial winning season in 11 years?
Evidently, Lions team president Tom Lewand falls into the latter category.
“Last year wasn’t good adequate for us,” Lewand told Detroit Television station WXYZ on Tuesday. “Our objective is not to be a wild card participant. Our targets are a lot greater than that. Folks say to us all the time, ‘What a excellent year, what a wonderful year.’ Properly, you know what, it wasn’t a wonderful year. It was okay.
“It was a step in the right direction, but we’ve got a lot of operate ahead of us, and our goals are out there to be achieved, and that aim ultimately is Super Bowl championships — not just one particular, but many.”
Lewand’s ambition is to be commended, and certainly the Lions have some pieces in place for continued good results, most importantly a healthful franchise quarterback in Matthew Stafford and an unbelievable wide receiver in Calvin Johnson.
But, c’mon … child actions. “Wasn’t great adequate” is a bit of a harsh assessment right after what the franchise and its fans have endured for so extended.
Don’t you believe?
