Did the Detroit Lions get better since last year's Super Bowl came to an end?

That's the topic Karsch and Anderson discussed on Tuesday's show.

Callers largely said they believed they have gotten better over the past four months.

Other than Jim Bob Cooter, the Lions have a new coaching staff under Matt Patricia. Anyone is better than Jim Caldwell, right?

The team addressed their awful run game with the addition of LeGarrette Blount, first round pick Frank Ragnow and Kerryon Johnson.

Despite that, USA Today doesn't think the Lions got better based off their game-by-game predictions for the 2018 season.

Using PlayoffPredictors.com, the Lions will only win six games and go winless in the NFC North.

Detroit will win games against the Jets and then not get another win until they play the Dolphins in week 7. Their other four wins come against the Seahawks, Panthers, Cardinals and Bills. 

According to Dave Birkett, the Lions over/under in Las Vegas is set at eight games. 

After seeing the over/under and what USA Today is predicting, do you think the Lions will win more than eight games this season?
