Detroit Lions Analysis: 6 Position Improvements Needed For Lions to Contend

Ok, Mr Mayhew, this has not been the best week for you, but I am here to deliver some good news.  Sure, you lost your starting QB, K, CB, S, and DE in a span of seven days but all is not lost.  You see, other than a few of us delusional fans, no one expected you to make the playoffs this year, so while these losses hurt, all they do is give you a better draft position next year.

The thing you must do is make it count.  You have done a good job so far.  Compared to you predecessor you have done a miraculous job, but you have missed on a few as well.  But all in all, I would give you a B+

Today, I am going to list for you the six positions you must improve in order for the playoffs to be within reach.

I am going to list them in increasing urgency so make sure you pay attention and not drift off halfway through. 

One thing before I start, I am going to assume your QB is going to get over his injury issues and play a lot of games in the next few years.
