    At least it's not as bad as 1942 where they went 0-11-0 and scored 38 points for the season! And jeez, what are you complaining about when they had a winning season only 8 years ago?


    /Go Bears!

    hey man....I'm about to become a bears fan as much as I hate to do so. there is NOTHING good about the lions. I feel bad for Calvin Johnson and maybe a little bit for Ernie Sims. This franchise sucks the life out of good players and makes them mediocre

    ... until they play elsewhere. Then they become good again.

    Amen! I loved watching Barry Sanders play, especially on those odd days when the Bears actually held him in check.

    Stolen from wikipedia, so take with a grain of salt -

    "Several years after retirement, and repeated refusals to discuss the abruptness of it, Sanders finally admitted that the culture of losing in the Lions' organization was too much to deal with even though he said that he could still play. He explained that it robbed him of his competitive spirit, and he saw no reason to believe things were going to improve. He also stated that there were tears in his eyes as the Lions lost the final game of his career the season before he left, because he knew in his heart he was never going to play another NFL game - 'I sobbed for 3 months.'"

    yeah....that sounds about right. I cry after every single game. Knowing that they will never see a winning season

    Most teams go through highs and lows, but man the Lions have been low for a loooong time.

    Hang in there; it's gotta change soon?

    I think they took the right first step by getting rid of Millen. I don't know how he collected a pay check for as long as he did. His talent evaluation was pitiful at best.

    Tell me about it. Being from Detroit this is very hard. :)

    Millen was only a small first step for fankind. This whole team needs to be gutted. WCF=terrible owner. I'd even take Al Davis at this point. SELL TO ILITCH!!!! at the very least we would have Little ceasers to eat at games

    The Lions, to me, are just one of those franchises, like the Clippers, Bengals, Cardinals (football), or my Saints, that seems doomed to never winning much of anything.

    i would gladly have a man who took the tigs to the WS 2 years ago and a perrenial champ with the Red Wings, buy the lions and put it into the hands of a great GM and proven winners. It would be awesome. AND I WANT LITTLE CEASERS

    Ya, I don't know what it is, but those teams never win, ever. Every once in a while they give ya a little hope, but then end up failing anyway. I think you can put the San Diego Chargers in that category too. Sometimes it's ownership, which I believe is the case for the Lions, Cardinals, and Bungles. (also the Raiders with their insane, senile owner, and may be the case for the Cowboys future, as JJ ages and his mind starts slipping away.) I think God is just punishing all the sinners in New Orleans ;)

    I was a little surprised that New England didn't at least give Culpepper a try-out when Brady initially went down. He's got the history with Randy Moss and all. But the Lions signing him makes no sense. They're obviously not going anywhere this season, and he's not gonna be your QB of the future.
