wow. First of all, its real tough to guage how good a QB is in his 2nd yr when he literally had the worst running game AND the worst wide recievers in the entire NFL. Give the kid a break.
The Lions have signed a solid C in Damien Woody and a G in David Laverne since March to bolster what was already a very good O-line - DET led the league in fewest sacks allowed last yr. 8 fewer than the next best! They also drafted a project named Kelly Butler in the 7th rd this yr, who is a darkhorse, but may be a steal in a couple yrs time.
They then went out and got secondary help by bringing in Brock Marion and Fernando Bryant. Those 2 combined with a healthy Chris Cash and a suprisingly solid Dre Bly, the secondary wont be the whipping boy it was last yr - much improved on paper at least.
Our LBs are young, fast as any, but extremely green. Give them 2-3 yrs to develop, and maybe Lehman can get off his blocks and read the game better by then. Boss Bailey turned out to be a great pick for the Lions last yr.
Basically the Lions addressed their D problems pretty well this yr, and wont be the laughing stock they were last yr. Please dont look at their first 2 draft picks this yr and conclude they havent upgraded their D because that simply isnt the case.
