Matthew Stafford, Megatron and Ndamukong Suh have turned the Detroit Lions organization around. From becoming the first team to lose all 16 games (since the NFL began the 16-game schedule) in 2008 to making the playoffs for the first time in 12 years in 2011, it has been a complete 180 degree turn.
The Lions finished 10-6 last year, earning them a trip to the playoffs as the sixth seed in the NFC. The celebration wouldn't last long, as they were quickly sent home by the Saints in the first round, 45-28.
This year, Lions fans are hoping for another trip to the playoffs, and perhaps a little more results once they arrive there. However, the road to a second consecutive playoff appearance will be much rockier than 2010.
Rocky enough to start another streak Lion's fans are more used to seeing, missing the playoffs.
