I'm not sure many people are surprised that the Detroit Lions are 0-2.
But, the Lions gave the Philadelphia Eagles today at Ford Field. Yes, the Lions lost 35-32, but the offense put up 444 net yards, and rookie Jahvid Best (who had 36 yards against the Bears) had 232 yards against the Eagles and scored three touchdowns.
Backup quarterback Shaun Hill had 335 passing yards but threw two interceptions to go with his two touchdowns. I think it's safe to assume that Matthew Stafford would have performed better.
Maybe the Eagles defense isn't very good. But, they held the Green Bay Packers under 300 net yards and Aaron Rodgers, projected by many as an MVP candidate, to 188 passing yards and a 73.1 passer rating.
Everyone knows the Lions defense is going to have some problems. But, I firmly believe that if Stafford can get healthy, the Lions offense can be an explosive one that can put up some big numbers.
