Detroit Lions tickets aren't the hot item they once were when Barry Sanders roamed the Silverdome, but some exciting new offensive weapons have brought the team back on the NFL radar. A new quarterback, a new coach and a new offensive system have revolutionized the way Detroit sees football. The only downside of this upswing is that tickets are harder to get than ever.

A Motor City Revolution

Detroit Lions fans didn't have much to cheer about over the last few years, as their team finished with dismal records from 2001 to 2003. The good news is that the Lions improved each year during that period. (Ok, so they only jumped from 2-14 to 5-11, but that's still an improvement.)

New head coach Steve Mariuchi has brought with him the West Coast offense from his days in San Francisco. The West Coast offense is so widespread these days it might as well be called the Cross-Continental offense, but its effectiveness has solidified its popularity in a true copy-cat league. Any team running this offense needs a solid quarterback, and Detroit thinks they've found their man in Joey Harrington.

Harrington, a standout at Oregon, has brought new credibility to a Lions offense that has stumbled since the departure of Sanders in the 1990s. Luckily, Harrington has been handed a solid supporting cast of receivers. Guys like Az-Zahir Hakim, Tai Streets and Charles Rogers are ready to make the long ball a regular feature in the Motor City.
