How important are the Detroit Lions to attitude in Michigan?

The attitude in Michigan right now is miserable on its best day.  Hope is getting ready to pack-up and move to Florida or some other warm weather state where there's hope of a job and a future that's not dependent on a failing auto industry.

Our state's offering in the NFL arena-the Detroit Lions-has almost always been in the losing column when the season ends.  Last year, it lost every game.  Their performance just seemed to mirror the attitude of the state that Michigan is for losers.

What is the Lions win this year?  What would that mean to our state?  Would it be a harbinger of what can happen in the whole state?

Check out Drew Sharp, a sports columnist in the Detroit Free Press who writes about the Lions' first game this year which they won.  Could this be their year?
