On Friday, the Detroit Lions released their final injury report for the week and A’Shawn Robinson, DeShawn Hand, and Luke Willson were all designated as OUT for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers.
A day later, the Lions have announced that cornerbacks Jamal Agnew and Nevin Lawson will also miss the final game of the season.

If the Lions want to pick up a win to move 6-10 on the season, they will have their work cut out for them as the team looks more like a MASH unit than a football team at this point.
If the Detroit Lions make this BOLD combo of moves, they will win the NFC North in 2019
The 2018 version of the Detroit Lions sucked horribly. The head coach sucked. The offense sucked. The defense sucked. Heck, even the special teams sucked at times.
So, with that established, what can be done during the offseason to turn things around on time for the kickoff of the 2019 season?
Though I have a few ideas up my sleeve that would help the team to improve greatly, the biggest idea is one that will likely blow your mind. Mostly because I am not sure if it has ever been done before.
In my opinion, there is one BOLD move the Lions can make this offseason that will, in turn, put the wheels in motion for a 2019 NFC North Title run.
Now, I get it. You are probably already shaking your head and calling me a moron for thinking the Lions have any chance in 2019.
But they do.
IF and ONLY IF they make this BOLD move. (Technically it is a trio of moves but stick with me)
