Preseason is normally a time of optimism and enthusiasm for the upcoming regular season. It's an exciting time to ponder what good may come, and these Detroit Lions could indeed be very good. 

However, every rose has its thorn. While the blossoming talent appears poised to make a serious playoff run, some buds have wilted on the vine.
