New, 2 comments

The Detroit Lions have not made the playoffs since 1999, but that hasn’t stopped players from raising the performance bar.

Second year safety Louis Delmas said he would be “pissed” if the Lions reached eight wins this season and didn’t make the playoffs—a six win improvement.

“We know what we can do,” Delmas said Saturday at receiver Derrick Williams’ charity softball game in Royal Oak. “We just slipped up last year. I know that we lost a lot of games on last drives last year. It’s no surprise if we come out and get eight wins — I won’t be surprised at all. We know we can do it.”

The Lions have not been in short supply of confident players the last few seasons. Former quarterback Jon Kitna predicted 10 wins in 2007, and running back Kevin Smith predicted a playoff berth before last season.
