The Detroit Lions have long been a pigskin piñata. Who didn’t love taking swings at their soft, defeat-filled underbelly after every stupid move they made?

Their long-term lack of success made it easy. Some Detroit fans reveled in the treatment, hoping the humiliation would someday cause the Lions to turn over a new leaf.

Well, consider that leaf turned … and not just because Detroit landed a stellar draft class last month.

“This has probably been the best-organized and well-attended player-led workouts of anybody,” defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch said between workouts.

Offensive guard Rob Sims agreed.
