After an explosive start in 2011, the Lion’s run game has lacked a certain pizzaz that caused defensive coordinators nightmares every week. Mikel Leshoure and Joique Bell gave a valiant effort but could not hit the afterburners to create big plays and take pressure off Stafford and the receiving core. There is a silver lining in bringing Leshoure and Bell back for another season...
Three years ago the Detroit Lions traded up for the sparkplug they had been lacking since Barry Sanders. California Golden Bear Jahvid Best dropped to pick 30 in the 2010 NFL draft because of durability concerns. Concussions had plagued the tiny track star in his collegiate career, but his skill was salivating enough for the Lions to take a chance.
