After a long, long off-season - longer than usual, given the lack of a bowl game - the 2021 football season is finally here!
And to that, MMQB has to say: bring it on.
The Lions are facing myriad questions:
- Will Mike Yurcich right the offensive ship?
- Is Sean Clifford good enough?
- Will the offensive line be a strength?
- Will the defensive line have anybody actually on it?
- Can this secondary actually be good?
- Was 2020 just a fluke?
And so on and so forth. The Lions have rightfully been knocked down a few pegs in the polls, and will have to earn their way back to top 10 status. The schedule does them no favors, including a season-opening trip against a top-15 Wisconsin club, not to mention games at Ohio State and Iowa.
But for no good reason at all, I just have a good feeling about the team. I guess we’ll see what happens on Saturday, but for now, bring it on I say.
Football is back, let’s goooooooo!
