Lions: With 33 new faces, could black cloud be lifting?
When you’re looking for changes from last season to the upcoming one, obviously the first place to start is the Lions roster which features 33 names that weren’t with the team last season. They all won’t make the final cut, but plenty will. You know the names — Ndamukong Suh, Kyle Vanden Bosch, Nate Burleson, Jahvid Best, Chris Houston. The list goes on.
Still, there’s another change too.
Maybe it’s because it was a sunny day and he was at a golf course, but on Tuesday at the Lions golf outing, coach Jim Schwartz had the biggest smile on his face. (Don’t believe me? See the video at http://bit.ly/9mTxao)
No one on the Lions, from Tom Lewand down, is going to get too excited about this team until they win one game — and then another and another. But it almost feels like some of the black cloud that hung over the Lions for many years, has started to dissipate.
