It's December and that season doesn't start until next September, so while this preview won't be an in-depth edition, it'll still get your mind onto what the future could bring next season.

How My Grandfather Made Me A Detroit Lions Fan

This is probably the hardest thing I have ever had to write in my entire life. Doing so on Fathers' Day makes it even more difficult, but in an odd way, it makes it easier as well. Trying to get such a jumble of thoughts and feelings out when everything is so fresh...
