Aiming too high is the downfall of heros, but if Icarus aimed this low would anyone remember him?… Marty Mayhew is about to put his pride is on the line.

(Ed. Note: Pretty sad when your franchise’s #1 goal is to beat a team you beat both times last year while under Matt Millen, and have an impressive record against them in Ford Field.)

5 Questions With Detroit Blogger

I noticed that after the Millen firing, there seemed to be a team-wide refocus to beat the Bears. First, what’s your prediction of the game, and second, what do the Lions need to do to beat the Bears?

Although I do have a feeling that the Lions could come out and pull off the upset due to all of the recent events, I think the Bears will win by a field goal or so.  Detroit can win if they play a balanced game where they don’t get behind early.  If they can keep it close after three quarters and never get down by more than a touchdown, then this is definitely winnable.  The most important things are that the offense limits its mistakes and the defense doesn’t give up any big plays.  It is expected that Chicago will have a pretty good day offensively as most teams do when they play the Lions.  However, if Detroit can contain Kyle Orton and Matt Forte and put some points up on the board themselves, then this could be closer than many expect it to be.
