The Detroit Lions have never won a Super Bowl, and are the only remaining franchise from the NFL”s early beginning to never have played in one.
This version of the Lions is a cocky group. and no player has more confidence than defensive tackle Nick Fairley. Fairley in an interview with the Detroit News told the paper that he thinks “the Lions will go to the Super Bowl.”
“I expect big things,” the Lions defensive tackle said. “I am going to say we are going to the Super Bowl because I am competitive and that is what I want for the team and it is one of the goals. I am sure we are going to take it game by game and day by day.”
What else is Fairley supposed to say, but it’s still big talk coming from team fresh off a 4-12 season. At least Fairley has avoided the police blotter.
