Detroit Lions — One step closer to history!

The Detroit Lions are 0 – 15 for the season and one loss away from a history making 0 -16 season, the perfect “winless” season. The Lions lost to New Orleans Saints (8 – 7) on Sunday, December 21 at Ford Field 42 -7.


This was from Fox Sports:

Lions become first 0-15 team ever in loss to Saints

The Detroit Lions somberly dressed after another defeat that was different than all the others. This one made NFL history and set the stage for a perfectly imperfect season. Detroit became the first 0-15 team when it was routed 42-7 by the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. “Awful, embarrassing,” Lions quarterback Dan Orlovsky said. “We stunk. Any bad adjective you can use, throw it in there.” The Lions try to avoid the dubious distinction of finishing 0-16 at Green Bay, where they haven’t won since 1991.

The Lions have a tough last game of the season at Green Bay. They just have so much history against them to win this game, I think they should just go for the loss and make history. Yes, that sounds strange, try to lose, but it’s the Lions, it can’t be that hard??

Dear Santa, I have a Christmas wish list for some of my friends:

• Please put a brain in Detroit Lions owner William Clay Ford’s stocking.

• Drop a lump of coal on Lions coach Rod Marinelli’s head, so he can wake up and see he is only an assistant coach and nothing more.

• Open the North Pole bank vault and give Lions fans a refund on every dime they have ever spent on the team.

• Please make sure every child has a sports hero and a parent who will hug him or her before he or she goes to bed on Christmas Eve.

Merry Christmas, big guy.

One of the funniest things that I have seen online about the Lions is:

Q: How do the Lions count to 16, anyway?

A: 0-1, 0-2, 0-3, 0-4 …

It does suck that one of the worst teams in NFL history is the Lions, but only a true die-hard Lions fan can find the good it this season. The Lions are in the history books!
