The Detroit Lions are one of the most buzzed-about teams in the NFL right now. I’m so excited for the upcoming NFL season. It all kicks off with the Detroit Lions against Superbowl Champions the Kansas City Chiefs on Sept. 7. Pop that popcorn. Also, drink that blue Kool-Aid. I’m lining up guests for the new season of “The Squad with Anne Erickson,” and we have some great people booked. I’m ready with a new season of my sports podcast. Subscribe to “The Squad with Anne Erickson” wherever you listen to podcasts. Reach out to me with your NFL insights here, and I’d love to include your thoughts on my show. Let’s get to know the initial 53-man roster for 2023.
So, who will we see on the field this season? The initial lineup is set. Of course, this will change throughout the season, but this is the initial crew. No matter who’s playing, there’s something different about the Detroit Lions this season, and it’s in a good way. For the first time in many years, there’s a respect for the Lions that just hasn’t been there.
When it comes to the roster, Jared Goff is one of the key pieces of the puzzle. He had a rough first year with the Lions in 2021. But, Goff was great last season and had some of the best stats in the NFL towards the end of the season. He still has a strong offense on the team, so if he picks up where he left off last season, then we’re golden. We also have a solid defense and offense. We’re not really rated as the “best” in any of these categories, but all of our positions are good enough to make us one of the strongest teams in the NFL. I’m not happy that summer is ending, but I’m happy that football is starting up.
