By now it's clear the Detroit Lions are not the team they were in 2011. Their offense, once considered one of the best in the NFL, is the reason why. They're in dire need of an upgrade, and Lions GM Martin Mayhew would be wise to target Denard Robinson in the 2013 NFL draft.
He might just be the missing piece to the Lions' championship puzzle.
Detroit's offensive struggles have been the same since Week 1, when they barely eked out a victory against the St. Louis Rams. They repeatedly start slow, receivers drop routine balls and no one besides Calvin Johnson has stepped up.
That perfectly sums up why the Lions are 4-7.
The offense is clearly missing something, but isn't this essentially the same team that won 10 games last season?
Not really. The Lions lost an integral part of their offense in Week 6, when Jahvid Best suffered a concussion. He's yet to return and the Lions have struggled to win without him.
