Detroit Lions beat writer for the Detroit News, Josh Katzenstein, threw out this question to his Twitter followers on Monday morning:
If I said the Lions still have the third-best QB, starting RB and WR duo in the NFC North, with which position would you take issue?— Josh Katzenstein (@jkatzenstein) April 7, 2014
What do you think?
Shep thought that the Detroit Lions could have the second-best at all three positions. He said Matthew Stafford is behind Aaron Rodgers, but you could make a case for him ahead of Jay Cutler.

Running backs is a tough position to choose, with Reggie Bush, Adrian Peterson, Eddie Lacy and Matt Forte.
Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery are the top WR duo in the division, and Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate are right ahead of Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson.
Nick Roddy thought that the Lions starting running back (Reggie Bush) was actually fourth-best in the NFC North, behind Peterson, Forte and Lacy.
