Perhaps spending all those draft picks on wide receivers is finally going to pay off in some kind of really odd, indirect fashion. This season, the receivers are looking very active and strong, looking to help free up Megatron and allow Stafford to look elsewhere once in a while when he drops back. Tom Kowalski wrote an article about his observations here. It is just me, or are the Lions turning a lot of heads already in training camp that they don't normally. Again, I am staying grounded and realize that they are a year or two away from serious playoff contention. But they are going to surprise some people if teams aren't careful. And by the way, on another positive note, Chris Houston and Jonathan Wade have both been mentioned by Calvin Johnson as having impressed him to some degree in the coverage abilities. Definitely good to hear, at least.
