The Detroit Lions Have Restored The Roar


The Detroit Lions have long been a team that has struggled to find success in the NFL. Despite the passion of their fan base, the Lions have been mired in mediocrity for decades, with only a few flashes of brilliance along the way. This season, there seems to be a growing sense of optimism surrounding the team, with many people believing that the Lions could finally be poised to break out and become a competitive force in the league.


The Lions' head coach, Dan Campbell, has brought a fresh perspective and energy to the team, and his leadership has already made an impact on the players. Campbell, a former NFL player himself, has instilled a tough, hard-working mentality in the team, which has led to a noticeable increase in effort and intensity in practices and games.

Coach Campbell along with Brad Holmes are proving to be a formidable duo. Brad brings a very relaxed management style to the table. He’s thoughtful and when he speaks there’s a quiet confidence that has gripped the Lions’ faithful.

Although the Lions had the 21st-ranked defense this season there is plenty of room for optimism.


Defensive lineman Aidan Hutchinson won the 2022 NFL Rookie of the Year award. Hutchinson led all rookies with 9.5 sacks and three interceptions this season.

Jared Goff's success will depend largely on the team's supporting cast, and the Lions have made significant upgrades in that area as well.

In fact, the Lions have gotten better on both sides of the ball. They have brought in former Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery to replace Jamaal Williams.


They upgraded the secondary with the signings of C.J. Gardner-Johnson, Cameron Sutton, and Emmanuel Moseley.

Detroit also brought in WR Marvin Jones Jr., Denver Broncos OL Graham Glasgow, while bringing back defensive tackle Isaiah Buggs, LB Alex Anzalone, RB Craig Reynolds, DE John Cominsky, OL Matt Nelson, and CB Will Harris among others.

But it all starts with the Coach, he's made the players and fans believe again. The Lions have a renewed sense of optimism and confidence heading into the season. The team's leadership has emphasized a team-first mentality and a commitment to hard work and toughness. The players have bought into this mindset, and the team looks to be more cohesive and united than in previous years.

The 2023/24 season looks to be a promising one for the Lions, with the team continuing to build and improve under the leadership of Campbell and general manager Brad Holmes.

While success in the NFL is never guaranteed, the Lions have reason to be optimistic about their chances in the upcoming season.
