Lions Mailbag: Looking toward the future

The final game of the regular season is upon us and, surprisingly for the Detroit Lions, it means nothing in the scheme of the playoffs. Who would have thought that even two weeks ago?

Instead, Detroit is playing for fun and for pride on Sunday against Minnesota in the last game in the Metrodome, so most of this final mailbag of the regular season deals with looking toward the future for the Lions.

We'll keep the mailbags going here in the offseason, although likely spread out a little bit more. Remember, mailbags are only as good as the questions you ask, so tweet them to the hashtag #LionsMailbag or @mikerothstein or email me at michael.rothstein@espn.com.

Now on to your questions for the final time this regular season.
