The Detroit Lions All-Time Offensive Team
Now it’s time for the offense to shine as I unveil my picks for the Detroit Lions’ All-Time Offensive Team. Time to score some touchdowns!
Last week, I shared my selections for the Detroit Lions‘ All-Time Defensive starters and if you missed that list, you can check it out right here.
I’m switching over to offense this week and my choices for this list were just as difficult as their defensive counterparts.
Still though, I think it’s a safe bet to say that the players I’ve selected would be able to score points with the best of ‘em!
