“The Lions have plenty of offensive firepower, with big-armed quarterback Matthew Stafford throwing to Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, and they had one of the best defenses in the NFL last year, ranking second in yards allowed and third in scoring D. Losing Ndamukong Suh to free agency hurt, but Detroit still has defensive coordinator Teryl Austin on staff. If the team manages to overcome the defection of Suh and make something happen in 2015, I would not be the least bit surprised to see Austin land a head-coaching gig by 2016. Of course, the Lions have the same problem as the Vikings: dealing with the Packers in the NFC North.”
