In order to provide some balance and divergent viewpoints, I invited my friend Cody Bauer to answer a few questions.

He has written for several places, including RealGM where I also write. You can follow Cody on Twitter @CBauerNFLDraft.

The Lions kicked off the 2014 season by kicking the Giants to the curb. Detroit’s 35-14 home win on the Monday Night Football opener should make Lions fans quite happy. A deeper analysis does little to wipe away the smile or the optimism.
