Too much attention too soon?

We all remember the Tigers' infamous 2009 second-half swoon. It reached a crescendo as the Tigers hit the cover of Sports Illustrated. As you may have heard, the Lions graced the cover of last week's SI after a second straight come-from-behind win on the road. They became 4-0 for the first time in more than 30 years with the victory and tonight's Monday Night Football game took on much different aura.
Time will only tell if the Lions are getting more love than they can handle, but everyone will readily admit they've earned it.
