Lions Gab: Tough road schedule leaves Lions going 9-7 in season prediction

I really like this coaching staff and I believe they have the tools and talents to turn this team around. I believe in Matthew Stafford as a franchise quarterback and I wholeheartedly believe his struggles have been a result of poor coaching. I think the front seven, offensive line and offensive skill positions are some of the best in football. I also believe that building a sense of accountability and instilling discipline does not happen overnight.
