Detroit Lions 2014 Virtual Program: Depth Chart Analysis, X-Factors and More

The 2014 Detroit Lions are all set to take the field!

After a disappointing 7-9 campaign in 2013, the Lions made several changes in an effort to claim the franchise's first-ever NFC North division title. 

New head coach Jim Caldwell brings a professional style and extensive playoff experience to Detroit. He hired offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi away from the New Orleans Saints and defensive coordinator Teryl Austin from the Baltimore Ravens, for whom Caldwell served as offensive coordinator for the last two seasons.

The team parted ways with few regulars, most notable among them safety Louis Delmas and defensive end Willie Young. As many as 18 of last season's starters return to the den, meaning a strong sense of continuity should help tame the winds of coaching change. 

This is a talent-laden team poised to recapture the success of last season's strong 6-3 start. With some new key contributors and many of the team's top talents in the prime of their careers, the Lions are ready to roar.
