Detroit Lions 2013 NFL Season Preview and Predictions
Matthew Stafford‘s quest for sound mechanics could very well make the difference between another mediocre Detroit Lions team and a playoff return.
The number of blue-chippers from a talent standpoint on this team definitely emerges in the top rung of the league. Calvin Johnson, Ndamukong Suh, Nick Fairley and Stafford each have the talent to be the league’s very best at their respective positions, but only Johnson has reached those heights. Meanwhile, Stafford remains a middling quarterback until he sorts out the inconsistent mechanics leading to erratic accuracy.
Aaron Rodgers throws from multiple arm positions just fine but also better factors necessity, moderation and obviously success into that facet. Detroit’s chances at finally hopping the Green Bay Packers requiree Stafford to take some pages out of Rodgers’ book.
With receiving weapons like Reggie Bush, Joique Bell and Ryan Broyles (if healthy, am very high on him) and a pair of frustrating-yet-talented receiving tight ends, the Lions could feasibly ride a blistering air attack to a playoff berth.
The pieces are in place to rough up opposing interiors thanks to the league’s best DT combo in Suh and Fairley, but that defense probably is not shutting down many teams even if Ziggy Ansah comes on strong. There’s literally a four-game swing on 2013 Stafford’s ability to be the bizarro 2012 Stafford.
Predicted Regular Season Record: 6-10 (3rd in NFC North)
Predicted Finish: Miss postseason
