[tps_title]#1 – Can Matthew Stafford take the next step?[/tps_title]
Matthew Stafford will be the key to the Lions success in 2015 and if he can take the next step, great things could be on the horizon. In 2014, Stafford led a Lions offense that struggled to put the ball in the end zone on a consistent basis, something which must change in 2015.
Not to make excuses because it’s part of the game, but last season was the first for Stafford and company under Joe Lombardi’s offense. They often looked uncomfortable and it was obvious that everyone was not on the same page.
So far this offseason, Stafford, and the offense have already shown signs of growth in the system and 2015 will be their chance to redeem themselves.
It will be very interesting to watch the offense in training camp to see just how comfortable they are, and if they are ready to become one of the top 10 offenses in the NFL.
I truly believe Matthew Stafford and the offense will do their part and the Lions will return to the playoffs for a second year in a row.
