NFL Offseason Preview -- Detroit Lions

Detroit Lions 2011 Record:  10-6 PPG For: 29.6 (4th) PPG Against:  24.2 (23rd) 2012 Cap Number:  $122,760,121 Draft Position:  #23 Pick Well that was fun, wasn’t it, Lions fans? From Week 9 of the 2007 season to the end of the 2010 season, your team won 10 whole games and scored 30 or more points just six whole times. In 2011, just one season, your team won 10 games and scored 30 or more points a whopping seven times. So yeah, I can see why you would be pretty excited about your team. Best of all, it wasn’t a random fluke and it didn’t involve a 70 year old Dave Krieg! No, the Lions are legitimately good, and barring an absolute catastrophe (don’t pretend like you aren’t terrified, Detroit fans!), this team looks like it has the makings of a future power. And by future I mean pretty much right now. A few tweaks here and there and a commitment to better on-field discipline, and the sky is the limit for this group.
