There are many keys to the Detroit Lions reaching the NFL playoffs this year. Certainly general manager Martin Mayhew sought to improve his offensive weapons this offseason and the additions should give Matthew Stafford the talent to reach the teams goals. The question here is who do you think is most important to the Lions improvement?
Is it the health of Calvin Johnson whose injuries towards the end of last season coincided with Stafford’s decline and the offense’s stagnation? Could Reggie Bush be the key out of the backfield or Eric Ebron’s rookie season make the difference. The key may lie with all pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh or one of his other defensive teammates. Then again, it may all truly lie on the shoulders, head and arm of Stafford.
There are many other keys as well including newly acquired Golden Tate, the other half of the running back duo Joique Bell or youngsters Kyle Van Noy and Darius Slay. Let us not forget the rookie star of last season Ziggy Ansah or soon to be free agent Nick Fairley. Who do you think holds the key to success for Detroit?
