Same Old Lions vs. BradyPats

Submitted by freelion on September 23rd, 2018 at 8:39 PM

Lions don't want to screw up their prime draft position tonight. They will put up a valiant effort but likely fade in the 2nd half.

Patricia appears to be a horrible game coach. Going for the FG when you had a great drive going and only needed 6 inches for a first down is questionable at best.

we're masochists.  that or we're just born into Lions fandom and can't not watch.  i just don't get upset if they lose.  i joke with a lot of people that the Lions are the Washington Generals of the NFL: paid to lose.  not only are they the Best Losing team but the game can actually end and Detroit can figure out a way to lose after the clock hits 00:00 like the Green Bay Hail Mary a couple years ago.

They seemingly invent new ways to lose that were never conceived - from simple ways like Sterling Sharpe not being covered in a prevent situation to the refs inventing the Calvin Johnson rule to create another loss, Jim Schwartz getting a penalty for an illegal coaches challenge, roughing the passer on failed Hail Mary, etc. You can't make this shit up!

i was born a lions fan.  (is this like being born a crack addict, or maybe in an orphanage?)  however, as i do proudly claim my yooper roots, i can tell you that i love my yooper-packer buddies and enjoyed my visits to lambeau - 96/97 NFC championship game v. carolina.  i will root for the packers, just not over the lions.  simple as that. 

and can somebody please get us the old, barry sanders era lions uni's back?  i hate this new version.

Dude, just stop. It is soooo incredibly liberating to fire the Detroit Lions, and be able to read the DetNews online on Monday's to see just how bad he Lions screwed the pooch the day before. That sad franchise has lost me and they won't make a dime off me until the day after they manage to win a playoff game  

Fire the Lions!  Don't condone and support their ineptitude any more.
