Last word on the 2019 Detroit Lions

These five numbers represent some big areas of need for the Lions and their ability to cover, repair, hide, or just simply improve the talent will likely decide the direction that 2020 takes.

Experts, we fought our urge to put that in quotes, don’t believe in the Lions ability to turn things around; however, some have put them on the shortlist of teams that are due for a playoff berth because of changes.

We don’t think that it’s irrational to believe that the moves Bob Quinn made will help, the defense almost doesn’t have anywhere to go but up. The offense with a healthy Stafford, new weapons, and some talent injected into the line should make a move towards being a Top-10 or higher offense.
