The Sky is Falling

This year I have noticed that many lions fans are going into the season with heads held high expecting a winning team and with good reason. Many feel including myself that we have upgraded a lot of positions and added solid depth to a stout young core of guys ie Stafford Calvin and Suh. Depth is something this team has never had ever since i started watching the lions way back in 2003 and were gonna need that.

Already the injury bug is hitting teams hard and crucial players are going down for the year. Many of are beloved Lions are injury prone and have missed many games ie Delmas, Stafford, Broyles, Leshoure, Fox, Burleson, Fairley, Bently ETC... Some injuries can be unrecoverable to a teams success ie Peyton Manning (Neck) and the Colts in 2011 the Colts went from playoff team to worst team in the league. Making a run at 0-16 but i wont go there.

With that said... If you could pick one player on this team that would be immune to the bug all year who would it be and why? The twist is you have to pick 2 starters that would have to miss the season for this player to be immune.

I would choose to have calvin healthy all year my reasoning is we have a solid back up QB and calvin is a elite once in a generation player and we have little WR depth. In return the bug gets Bartell and Jones. Based on the young depth we have at those positions I believe we can fill in the gaps with limited drop off.
