My arse. This defense has done nothing all year to show that we'll give up 30 to the Lions.

Suh and Fairly are beasts and there won't be much of a pocket after 1.5 seconds. This don't seem to matter much as Wilson has seldom been been asked to stay in the pocket anyway. There will be a barrage of quick sideline passes that I hope are forward passes and not laterals. Wilson will do a lot of rolling to his right so hopefully Rice and Edwards will find seperation to his right so he don't try throwing across his body too much. That is my fear in this game; Wilson chased to the right, then trying to make a play back towards the middle of the field. Detroit will certainly be anticipating this.
I think we'll see more passing than usual on first down, likely to Lynch or Turbin, which hopefully leads to a day of 2nd and 5s. We can win with 2nd and 5s.
Wilson reportedly has some sort of super-human work ethic. He's had a lot of time to prep for this one and I look for him to have a 17-22 sort of game with 200 yards and 2 tds. I think Lynch and Turbin will combine for 130 yds on the ground and 1 will score.
The defense we don't even need to concern ourselves with. They will make life hell for Stafford and Johnson wion't be a factor in this game. I expect no less than 2 INTs and 4 sacks from this side of the ball and doubt Det gets more than 70 yds on the ground...230 yds total offense with 1 TD, 3 fgs.
