You think Detroit is an elite offense? Maybe. I don't think they are though. Calvin Johnson is the best WR in the game, but what else do they have?
Still they got shut down. Anytime you do that to an NFL offense, well done sirs. Niners are the best defense for sure.
I assume it's because their lack of a run offense. Even so, they were 5th in Yards-Per-Game, and 4th in Points-Per-Game last season. And they still have Stafford and Megatron.
Stafford was top 5 in a lot of stats last season, and Megatron is..well, Megatron.
Elite, perhaps not. But that's a damn fine offense.
Point is. 49ers are going to breeze through the season, and then we'll get the playoffs again and see what happens.
I see no more than 4 losses. Jets, Giants, Saints, Pats.
And that's optimistic that the Jets beat them.
