Detroit Lions: 3 Reasons the Lions Secondary Isn't as Weak as You Think

The Detroit Lions were one of the NFL's biggest surprises last season, and for good reason. The Lions came off an 0-16 season in 2008 to go 6-10 in 2010.

If that wasn't a big enough turnaround, the team followed that up with a 10-6 record in 2011 to make the postseason for the first time in over a decade.

The Lions are on the rise, there is no doubt about that. The team's defensive backfield, however, remains the biggest issue on the team (besides off-field issues, that is) and seems to be the one thing holding them back from being a Super Bowl contender.

The Lions are already a playoff team, they just need to take another step. Many people aren't giving the secondary any credit, but they aren't as poor as everyone thinks.
