Schwartz and Stafford look to turn things around for the Lions in 2013.

Today the Detroit Lions have a markedly higher NFL profile than at any other time in their history. No longer are they the league's doormats. Okay, some people still think they are, but in reality the Lions are a dangerous team to face.

4-12 might not make you think "dangerous" but they are a better team than their record from last year suggests. However they might not be quite as good as their 10-6 record was from the year before.

The truth lies somewhere in the middle.

With a core of elite young talent, teams better not take the Lions for granted anymore. 

Calvin Johnson, Matthew Stafford and Ndamukong Suh lead the resurgence, and the Lions hope they've put enough talent around them for another run to the playoffs. Those three need to stay on the field and perform at a high level for the Lions to be successful in 2013.

Here are some more things every Lions fan should know about this year's team.
