I like what Mariucci and co has done with that team in a short time. When the Lions win more games than the 49ers this year, it will be proof of how good a coach he is. That said, I still don't think they have enough for an 8-8 season this year. Lots of youngsters on offense and I don't think their defense is good enough to win the close games. They will definitely show something and be a lot more competitive this year, but I thought the Bears were the team that was a couple players away from a surprise 2004 season in that division. They picked up some good o-lineman, drafted to their biggest weakness on defense and have a (hopefully for the Bears) more well rounded RB. I expect a close division race in the NFC North because the Bears and Lions should be good enough to steal a game from the Vikes and Packers.

The Lions look good on paper this year but expect .500 not the playoffs. If you consider the inexperience at the skill positions on offense, that would be a great mark. Potentially in 1-2 years, this team could be one of the best for a long time to come.
