Time for some good vibes.

The Detroit Lions have been relatively mediocre for the last few seasons.

And I have no clue what this season will look like for them. Even without a COVID-inflicted season, I think I would have hard time pinning down my expectations for the Lions this year.

Ultimately the Lions have to worry about the Packers, Vikings, and Bears — who they lost every game to last season.

But the Lions were also without their starting quarterback for much of 2019 and did play teams tight throughout the year, even with multiple backup quarterbacks and no real starting running back.

And that brings me to today’s question of the day:

What is the most optimistic thing about the 2020 Lions?

My answer: The offense

Having Matthew Stafford back and heathy is enough reason alone to be optimistic in 2020. But the offense as a whole has a chance to one of the top units in the league if everyone stays healthy.

I love what offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell has brought to the Lions offense. Yes, he could could utilize the tight ends better, but that’s a story for another day.

I have a lot of worries about the defense, but this is a positive post.

So let’s hear it. What are you most optimistic about for the Lions in 2020?
