For a while now, the Detroit Lions have been plain dismal. They haven’t won a playoff game since the 1991-92 season, made the playoffs since the 1999-00 season, and two years ago went 0-16.
Coach Jim Schwartz and the rest of the Lions organization have been looking to turn that around though. They have been one of the most active teams this offseason and are looking to improve greatly this year.
Their latest acquisition was trading for Rob Sims, a guard who played for the Seattle Seahawks last year. Some other notable acquisitions have been trading for defensive tackle Corey Williams and signing defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch, wide receiver Nate Burleson, and cornerback Chris Houston. All five of these players are expected to compete for starting positions.
Combining these players with the great draft class brought in last year and the expected talented
draft class for this year’s draft, where the Lions hold the second overall pick, the Lions are definitely headed in the right direction. It appears that they will no longer be a pushover game for their opponents.
