2020:  Every year is the Lions' year in the summer.  And every year once they actually have to play the games... not so much.  There was the usual free agency splash, and the D should be much improved via that and the draft.  If Matthew Stafford is healthy the Lions will be productive.  But is there any reason to think this the year they catch up with the rest of the NFC North?  Nope.
