Upon missing 3 field goals (badly) last Sunday, former Lions kicker Alex Henery was unceremoniously told to piss off. I then went on a campaign for the Lions to sign recently released kicker and beer aficionado Matt Prater. I even made a banner.
Were it not for some untimely field goal misses, the Lions would be 5-0 with the league’s best defense. In case you missed it, the league’s best defense won the Super Bowl last year. On offense, key injuries are not expected to be season-ending, so getting them back healthy, maintaining new defensive coordinator Teryl Austin’s great scheme, along with signing the new step man, Prater, will ensure the Lions walk right into the Super Bowl. You heard it here first.
Watch your step on the way out.
