The Detroit Lions Defensive Back MerryGoRound Is Slowing Down

Ever since the Detroit Lions lost cornerback Bryant Westbrook and safety Kurt Schulz to injury during the 2000 season, they've been unable to find consistency in the defensive backfield.

I did the research and found the Lions have replaced two or more starters in the secondary almost every single season since.His new partner in crime, Eric Wright, is a similar story. Drafted in the same round of the same draft , Wright looked like a Pro Bowl corner in the making until he was undone by some high-profile failures during the 2010 season. According to the Lions coaches, though Wright was victimized by Anquan Boldin and had a couple of other high-profile failures last year, the film shows he was on point the rest of way.
