In 2011 the Detroit Lions went 10-6 just three years after going winless, the first team in NFL history to do so. And Motor City had a team to be proud of.

But then that same team took a step back in 2012—a huge step back. More like a leap, really. Detroit went 4-12, and suddenly, a team that was on the upswing reverted back to old form.

It’s safe to say that heading into the 2013 season, the Lions have some problems to address. It’s that time of year when camp is looming, and now is the time to go about fixing last year’s debacle.

This article contains the top 10 biggest issues the Lions must deal with. These are problems that cropped up during the 2012 season and ones that must change in order for the Lions to get back to their 2011 form.

The defensive line troubles, Swiss cheese of a secondary and pass-happy offense are all in there. But the No.1 issue isn’t any of those and might be the hardest to fix.

Curious? Read on.
