But since Johnson is staying with the Lions, fans can hope to see the same explosive games from their favorite team in the future.

This fan thinks Johnson deserves a raise and should stay with the team for a longer time.

I think Dan, Brad and Sheila should give him a raise for showing loyalty to the organization and to assisting in building something special here, if everything goes well next year then lock him up long term to build and keep continuity

The Lions became more powerful under their coach

According to Detroit Free Press, Ben Johnson virtually gave interviews to three teams recently. The teams were Houston Texans, Carolina Panthers, and Indianapolis Colts. Under the coach, the team ranked in the top ten in the offensive category. They were fourth in total yards, sixth in passing, and fifth in the NFL in terms of points scored (26.6 ppg).

Although they missed out on the postseason, Detroit topped 30 points eight times and won eight of their final ten games.  It is expected that the Lions will enter the next season as the most deserving team to win the NFC North division.
