Too soon? Maybe. The Detroit Lions are still hurting from getting oh-so close to making it to the Super Bowl for the first time in the history of the franchise. But, don’t fret, Lions fans. Dry those tears. I’m here to tell you that the Detroit Lions could very well make it to the Super Bowl next year.

This isn’t wishful thinking or false hope. There have been several developments this week that, personally, have given me a lot of hope about the future of this team. Some of that hope comes from the fact those in the inner circle of the Lions – coaches and players – know more about what’s going on than we do, and those people seem to be in great spirits. They even want to stay with the team for one more go.

It’s going to be difficult. The NFC North is getting stronger each year. Green Bay is going to be a major contender next season. The Vikings could be very strong, too. The Bears, well, as my dad would say, God bless them, but they have a ways to go. But, the Lions have a real chance to once again be NFC North champions, and this time, they could go all the way. Let’s look into why this team could go to the Super Bowl in 2025.

Also, if you have any interest in watching the Big Game this year, this year’s Big Game will take place on Sunday, Feb. 11, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m. ET. The Super Bowl halftime performer will be Usher. You’ll be able to watch the festivities on CBS, Paramount+ and NFL+. Of course, this year’s game as the San Francisco 49ers up against the Kansas City Chiefs. Dang, it still burns that it’s not the Lions vs. the Chiefs. Let me know what you think here.

  • Ben Johnson is back

    The Detroit Lions seriously couldn’t have gotten any better news this week than when Ben Johnson said he wasn’t leaving Detroit. He wants to bring the Lombardi Trophy to Detroit. This is so huge for Detroit. Thank you, Ben. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

  • Brad Holmes

    Detroit Lions GM Brad Holmes is a major part of the team’s success. He’s officially been named the 2023 NFL Executive of the Year. It’s a big honor, and he totally deserves it. Holmes will keep bringing the right people into the Motor City.

    The Official Site of the Detroit Lions

    Brad Holmes was named the Lions Executive Vice President and General Manager on January 14, 2021. In his role, he oversees the Lions' football operations and reports directly to Principal Owner and Chair Sheila Ford Hamp and President and CEO Rod Wood. H

  • Our team, and coaches, are well-liked

    Hey, we can debate about Dan Campbell’s fourth down calls all day and night, but the guy is a likeable dude. He’s built a great chemistry with the Lions and positive aura in the franchise. That counts for a lot, and that’s probably one reason why guys like Ben Johnson are turning down big gigs to stay here.

  • We have the talent

    C’mon. Our roster is lit. Jared Goff is playing the best football of his career. We’ve got guys like Aidan Hutchinson, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Jameson Williams, David Montgomery and Jahmyr Gibbs. Dream team.

  • We have the fight

    The Detroit Lions are calling it “grit,” but you could also call it “fight.” Hey, Detroiters have the kind of toughness that one needs to come back from a setback like the 49ers game. We have the spirit, too. Let’s get after it. I’m super excited.
