5 Reasons Matthew Stafford and Detroit Lions Will Regress in 2012

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.
