Thank you. I totally agree. They are a NFL team, and are not predestined to lose forever. It's not like they were terrible this year either, they won 7 games, including 4 in the division. They have talent and were extremely fun to watch this year despite the finish (does everyone forget the end of the Cowboys game?).

...that the Lions & Cowboys teed it up in 1993 at Wembley Stadium (until I saw the post on the Lions' FB page).

If I remember that game, it actually ended up in a tie. Gee...way to differentiate yourself from Euro football, guys. ;-)

FWIW - I'm a Giants fan, but watch the Lions whenever they're on TV.  They're a legitimately fun team and enjoyable to watch, regardless of whether they win or lose, because they have some nasty weapons on offense.   Obviously, I understand you guys would love to see more winning, but many fan bases out there would be VERY happy to have Megatron and Bush running free in a wide-open offense...

Ever hear of a guy named Barry Sanders?

Detroit fans are sick of losing. We don't want exciting players, we want a winning team. I'd trade Calvin Johnson if it helped the team win. That trade doesn't exist, but if you gave the fans a choice between Calvin Johnson and a division title, you know what they would pick. 

I would give my left testicle to have 2 rings like the Giants. It doesn't mean shit that we have Calvin Johnson and you have a Qb who wouldn't look out of place selling used Honda's.
