The Detroit Lions now know their upcoming schedule, and we're all anxiously awaiting this season to see if the Lions can finally make some positive changes and move forward as an organization. They will start the season by taking on the San Francisco 49er’s at home on September 12th. The Lions will end their season at home on January 12 against the Green Bay Packers.

Will the Lions Make the Playoffs

Now, the real question is, can the Lions make the playoffs? As we speak, it's very doubtful because you just don’t  know what to expect from this new era Lions team.

A Lot Of Good Things Happening For the Lions

I really am intrigued by all of the positive changes they have made. From their new GM, head coach and staff, to draft choices and free agent pickups. This should be a wild season for Lions fans. You just don’t know what you're going to get from this team!

They're Still the Lions, But Will They Actually Do Well This Year?

Many people will take for granted that they will smell. But then there are the fans that are always looking for that glimmer of a possibility that they can win. The realistic fans know better, but we may actually see some improvement over previous years.

There have been so many changes in the organization, like a new quarterback in Goff and some solid draft choices. The Detroit Lions also have a new head coach in Dan Campbell. He has limited head coaching experience—Campbell was the interim head coach of the Miami Dolphins years ago—but he has hired a solid staff. That alone will not win football games on a consistent rate, but it's a good start.

We'll Have to Watch and See What Happens

The Detroit Lions franchise has been a joke for 50 years, since Bobby Layne was there and they traded him. Is it actually a curse, or just awful hires and bad players? I say it's the second one, but what do I know. They have been in a funk for years.

So, what will the Lions' record be like this year? We can only wait and see!
