Reasons to celebrate, Week 4: Bye week has arrived for Lions

Raj Mehta-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

There weren't many reasons to celebrate the Lions' loss to the Vikings. However, the Lions can celebrate the fact that their bye is this week.

As part of our series on reasons to celebrate, we are asked each week to highlight positive aspects from the previous game. As of late, the Detroit Lions have made this series quite difficult, as there haven't been a whole lot of positives. They've lost three games in a row and are now 1-3 on the season. This past Sunday, the Lions lost at home to the Minnesota Vikings in a really ugly game that didn't have a whole lot of bright spots.

There is a reason to celebrate, though. Specifically, I'm celebrating the fact that there isn't a game this week. The bye week could not have come at a more perfect time for the Lions. They are struggling in all three phases of the game right now, and the coaching staff needs to take this week to get it together. The players need to take this week to shake off the 1-3 start and get their minds right for when they return for next week's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Aside from the fact that the bye is coming at a time when the Lions need to fix things, it's also good timing for their injury situation. A lot of guys are banged up, and the Lions still haven't had Louis Delmas play in a game yet this season. The hope is that with the bye being this week, he will finally be ready to return in Week 6.

It's never a good thing to open the first quarter of the season with a 1-3 record, but let's just hope that the Lions use the bye to their full advantage and get this season back on track.
