Three reasons Lions are on the right track
Three reasons the Lions are on the right track to building a winning team.
1. First the Big Three — coach Jim Schwartz, general manager Martin Mayhew and President Tom Lewand — are all on the same page. They share the same philosophy and will not waiver from it.
2. Good, young solid pieces are already in place — QB Matthew Stafford, WR Calvin Johnson, RB Jahvid Best, DT Ndamukong Suh, DT Nick Fairley and MLB DeAndre Levy to name a few.
3. Mayhew has proven to be a quiet but effective general manager. Last year he came through with two big free agent signings — Kyle Vanden Bosch and Nate Burleson. Then Mayhew made some trades to get other key guys like DT Corey Williams, DT Rob Sims, QB Shaun Hill and others.
