Can The Detroit Lions be a Playoff Contender in the next few years?

The Detroit Lions are a team that has been through a lot of pain not making the playoffs in 5 years and not winning a playoff game in 30 years. they haven´t had a winning record since 2017 going 9-7 and not making the playoffs and going 3-13-1 in the 21-22 NFL season. The Lions are looking to turn it around. They had good drafting by drafting Aiden Hutchinson 2nd overall in the 2022 NFL draft and taking Jameson Williams 12th overall in the same draft, Aidan has had a significant impact on the team this year Aiden Hutchinson has 3.0 sacks all coming against the Commanders in week 2 his best game as a rookie, but Jameson Williams will be out most of the season with an injury. Even though the Lions are 1-3 right now they can turn their season around if their defense steps up, Dan Campbell has proven that he can turn this team around and be a great coach for the decade for the lions. The lions can potentially turn their franchise around and start making the playoffs in the years to come but they will need a significant overhaul on the defense and a new quarterback, Jared Goff hasn´t proved himself to lead the lions anywhere but a top 5 pick. If the lions can fix all these issues the lions could be a playoff contender down the road.
