Detroit Lions: 10 Best Moments of the 2011 Season

With the Detroit Lions going one-and-done to the New Orleans Saints on Saturday, it's now good-news, bad-news time.

The bad news, of course, is that the Detroit Lions are out of the playoffs and won't be winning a Super Bowl this year.

The good news is that they look closer than they've ever been to that elusive top tier of the NFL, and a retrospective of the best things that happened this season is easier than it usually is.

In fact, it'll be harder to write the next one ("Worst Moments of the Season," coming later this week) than it will be to write this one.

So for the first time in a long time, there's more good than bad to talk about at the end of the season. Even without a playoff win, that's undeniable progress.

So let's take a feel-good trip through the best moments of the 2011 season, before we start gearing up for 2012.
