All Detroit Lions fans should still be sick to their stomach after they watched their team blow a 24-7 lead against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, but the sun did come up on Tuesday morning.
Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson has been one of the hottest names in this year's NFL head coaching cycle, and there were rumors he would be taking the Washington Commanders head coaching position, but that seems to be no longer happening. Johnson will be sticking around another season with the Lions.
Johnson heading back to Detroit is just massive for the offense, and we have seen many years in the NFL when a great offense loses its offensive coordinator to a head coaching job; the offense sometimes takes a step back the following season, but that will not be the case for the Lions in 2024, and they can build off of a great 2023 season.
Jared Goff came into his own this season, and we saw the emergence of rookie players tight end Sam LaPorta and running back Jahmyr Gibbs, veteran running back David Montgomery, one of the best receivers in the game, Amon-Ra St. Brown, and the best offensive line in football.
The Lion's offense should be clicking from day one of this upcoming season, and Johnson coming back should excite all Lions fans.
