1. With Jim Bob Cooter now gone, it is time to consider what options are available

With the announcement that Jim Bob Cooter will not return next season, it is time for the Lions to consider who will replace him. There have been names that have been rumored, but there is plenty of time for this decision to be made. It will be interesting to see who takes this position because there will be a lot of pressure on them considering the Lions have been waiting to see a consistent offense since Scott Linehan left.

2. This was the best the offense has looked all year

Even with this being Cooter’s last game as offensive coordinator, this was the most fluent this offense has looked all season. Even with all the injuries they had, they were still able to move the ball down the field easily and efficient all game. Now, even though Green Bay’s defense was depleted as well, to see how Matthew Stafford was effectively able to move the chains was a positive sight for Lions fans to see going into next season.

3. The defense closed out the year on a great note

The Lions defense was one of the bright spots in the 2nd half of the season. After the Damon Harrison acquisition, there was a different feel about the defense. Their run defense improved drastically and the pass defense started to really find its way too. Going into next year, expect head coach Matt Patricia fill out the defense to more to his type of guys.

Even though this game didn’t have much meaning behind it, it still was a pretty positive way to end an overall disappointing season for the Lions. A shutout against a division rival is always a good victory for a team. Also, this victory over the Packers gives the Lions a 4-0 record against their divisional foe over the last two years. With things being shook up this offseason, it will be intriguing to see what next year holds in store for the Lions next year.
