NEW YORK (AP) — Comments on the Detroit Lions by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):



Chris Berman (ESPN, 8) — Lions learned how to win — can they do it when everyone's looking?

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 8) — Calvin Johnson wants to top 100 yards receiving every week. He's good enough to set bar that high.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 16) — Could be scary team if Matthew Stafford continues to get better.

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 19) — Not good enough yet at RB or CB. Sounds like 9-7 to me.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 13) — Bar now raised after last year's playoff run. But competition fierce in NFC North, and this might be year to step back for Lions.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 8) — Running game remains unsettled with Jahvid Best on PUP and Mikel Leshoure sitting out two-game suspension.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 15) — William Ford's comments aside, think Lions are third-best team in NFC North.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 15) — Jim Schwartz can only hope Lions show more discipline on fall Sundays than they do off field.
