Super Bowl Broadcaster Collinsworth: “Lions Will Be In This Thing”
The Detroit Lions are one of four NFL franchises who have never appeared in a Super Bowl, but if you ask NBC analyst Cris Collinsworth he believes the Lions will strike their name from that list soon.
Speaking at a media event on Tuesday in Minnesota, Collinsworth was asked about a bunch of different players and teams. One reporter opened a dialogue about Lions rookie receiver Kenny Golladay and while Collinsworth said he hadn't watched enough film to give an educated opinion, he then launched into a potential Lions Super Bowl run.
"I just think the Lions at some point are going to make it happen. They have too much talent there to not." Collinsworth said.
When asked follow-ups, "make it happen" turned into "be in this thing [the Super Bowl]" for Collinsworth.
Collinsworth was not sure exactly how soon it may happen though "I don’t know, we’ll see what old Matty [Matt Patricia] can do."
The Lions have won 9+ games in three of their last four season but have not won a playoff game since 1991.
