Sometimes a Statistic is Worth a 1000 words

From the Elias Sports Bureau: The Detroit Lions defeated the Minnesota Vikings, 20-13, to finish their season with four consecutive victories. That's as many wins as Detroit posted in its previous 45 games combined (4-41), dating back to December 2007.

Even better, the Lions Defense that ranked dead last the past three years was nearly average.

Defense
Total Yards - #21 (343.6 yards/game)
Passing Yards - #16 (218.6 yards/game)
Rushing Yards - #24 (124.9 yards/game)
Points - #19 (23.1 points/game)

The Offense was no slouch either considering they played with their 2nd and 3rd string quarterbacks for most of the season.

Offense
Total Yards - #17 (338.9 yards/game)
Passing Yards - #12 (238.1 yards/game)
Rushing Yards - #23 (100.8 yards/game)
Points - #15 (22.6 points/game)


Individually, our running backs need to have a better season but how about our top three receivers.
1. Calvin Johnson (15 Games, 77 Receptions, 1120 Yards, 12 Touchdowns)
2. Brandon Pettigrew (16 Games, 71 Receptions, 722 Yards, 4 Touchdowns)
3. Nate Burleson (14 Games, 55 Receptions, 625 Yards, 6 Touchdowns)

Though I Do Like the Dual Threat Potential of Jahvid Best Next Season
Rushing (171 Carries, 555 Yards, 4 Touchdowns) + Receiving (58 Receptions, 487 Yards, 2 Touchdowns)
= 1042 Yards and 6 Touchdowns
