From this morning, on the Fox Sports NFL pregame show, FOX NFL Sunday Jimmie Johnson on the NFC: “Seattle is going to have home field advantage throughout the playoffs. New Orleans is going to be the No. 2 seed – all they need to do is split the two games with Carolina. The third seed is going to be the Detroit Lions – they’ve got the best team and could win it all. Dallas is going to take the fourth seed. If they stumble, Philadelphia could take it over by winning that last ball game then San Francisco and Carolina will be the two wild cards.” Pretty high praise for the Detroit Lions there from Jimmy Johnson. He later doubled down. With a further explanation of his opinions. After all, the Detroit Lions have just one playoff win since 1957. Analyst Jimmy Johnson assesses the Detroit Lions: “Detroit might be the most talented team in the entire league. They’ve got enough talent to win it all if they weren’t a sloppy team. They’re undisciplined. They turn it over, 25 turnovers, 80 penalties and a sloppy, undisciplined team is easily distracted.” For the Detroit Lions to be the best team in the NFL….Don’t know about that. They became the first NFL team to finish 0-16 in 2008 Paul M. Banks is the owner of The Sports Bank.net, an affiliate of Fox Sports.
