My answers comes after the jump…

There is a lot to look forward to but I am most looking forward to seeing the offense on the field. This is the first time in quite some time that the offense should feel like a solid unit rather than some warm bodies and a couple isolated islands of talent. We can expect a huge year from Calvin Johnson as the excuses made for him (legitimate or otherwise) should be completely gone with Nate Burleson, Tony Scheffler, and Brandon Pettigrew filling the defensive backfield. I’m also really looking forward to see what Jahvid Best can do considering his speeds is an added dimension the Lions have sorely missed. I can’t wait to see if Matthew Stafford can take the major step forward that many believe he can and needs to take. The Lions figure to have a number of problems on defense but the offense may be exciting enough to compensate and make Sunday afternoons worth watching.
