Former UCF star Kevin Smith promises down-and-out Detroit Lions will make the playoffs next season
May 8, 2009 (The Orlando Sentinel delivered by Newstex ) --


Former UCF star Kevin Smith is making some big promises on his blog.

Smith was dismayed by the Detroit Lions' 0-16 performance last season and was in tears following the final loss of the season. He was a fantastic spokesman for the team and earned a lot of praise for posting decent numbers despite the slew of problems last year.

Smith wrote Detroit will do more than just win a few games next season.

"I wont make a prediction about how many games were going to win, but I will say this: We will definitely make the playoffs this season.

"Believe it or not we werent far off last year. Almost every game we could have won, we were one play or one player short. Except for Tennessee on Thanksgiving, they just came out and beat us to sleep. They manhandled us, but nobody else did."

Smith adds that he feels like he is putting in the work needed to have a stellar season.

"But this is definitely my year," he wrote. "Ive been thinking about how its been kind of similar to my experience in college, which would make this a breakout year for me. Im working toward a Pro Bowl, working toward a championship."

In addition to his blog updates, Smith has signed up for Twitter. You can follow him at www.twitter.com/kevinsmith34. He posted his first Tweet today and wrote, "We will make the playoffs this season! Check out my blog at www.smith34.com."
