Detroit Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley told the Detroit News that he believes his team will be in the Super Bowl in 2013.

“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.”

Fairley says he’s very competitive.

“I always have high expectations,” said Fairley.. “I got my kickball tournament and I am trying to win these games. It is the competitor in me that comes out on Sundays.”

It’s great that Fairley believes the Lions will be in the Super Bowl, but he needs to understand that getting back to the playoffs would be a big accomplishment for them in.  They still have a lot to work on heading into this season.
