I think it's safe to say the Detroit Lions have had an eventful offseason.
And presumably, now that the team is in training camp and preparing for the season, there won't be anymore news on the legal front.
But there's still plenty of intrigue to be had, as we finally get to shift our focus to football. Jahvid Best is looking more and more questionable, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, as the regular season approaches, Mikel Leshoure is missing still more time with injury, Cliff Avril missed a few days of training camp, only to show up after his son's birthday.
And then there's that whole Aaron Berry...thing. Admittedly, that's both a legal issue and a football thing, since Berry was cut after his second arrest, but it sort of served as the transition from offseason to training camp.
Regardless, we're not even to the first preseason game yet, and the regular season already looks a lot different than it did a month ago.
Normally, I try to avoid making season predictions after we're closer to the regular season and the roster has taken shape, but I imagine I'll be doing another set of these before opening Sunday, so it might be interesting to see how these predictions change based on preseason and roster results.
So for now, enjoy these game-by-game predictions for the Lions' 2012-13 season. And be gentle. I'm working with incomplete data here.
