No, the Detroit Lions do not have cheerleaders. Mr. Ford does not like the idea of cheerleaders. He prefers to keep the game a family event atmosphere and thinks that cheerleaders would lead to drunken-male atmosphere that will create a lot of fights and destroy his reputation. Back in the early to mid 1970's while the Lions played in Detroit (Briggs Stadium), they did in fact have cheerleaders - 7 ladies to be exact. We were paid per game and cheered at the home games only, as they did not allow us to travel to the away games. When the Lions moved out of Detroit to the Pontiac, MI Silverdome, the squad was disbanded. There was a time the Detroit Lions did have professional cheerleaders!
Through the 2008 season, the last Redskins home playoff game was January 8, 2000 and was played at FedEx Field, which had been known as Jack Kent Cooke Stadium until the naming rights were sold to FedEx in November, 1999. The Redskins defeated the Detriot Lions, 27-13.
Both teams are real hot right now.......Detroit historically can be hard to beat at home Thanksgiving Day, so I would think GB needs a huge effort to win...I would give Detroit a slight advantage at home......Green Bay then plays the Lions the last game of the season at Lambeau, so I would the Packers the advantage at home.
