Good God.

2-16 in the M&M regime.

They went from a really weak playoff contender to the worst team in football in under a year and a half. Run them out of town on a rail now and try to build around Harrington.

Forget drafting offensive linemen, the Lions have shown that they're incapable of doing so. From here on out, only free agent offensive linemen. Forget about the draft period, unless you're drafting skill position players. Draft your QB, your RB and your WR, maybe a linebacker here or there. The rest, get from free agency.

I'm hurting, brothers. Thank God the Wings just opened up training camp. Without the boys in Red, things around Detroit would totally stink sports-wise. I mean, I'm not hanging my hat on the Stackhouse-less Pistons..... yet.

My new suicide pool strategy will be to pick against the Lions each of the next few weeks - they are a painful team to watch even on SportsCenter

The Cowpokies aren't bad enough to be an automatic loss - I'm liking Green Bay over/at Detroit and New England over KC at home......I'll make my final decision a little later in the week.

Too bad for all those who took the "Lambs" yesterday

Here's another suicide pool strategy: bet on the Cowboys every single time they play the Redskins.





Cowboys 1-1-0. Right on schedule.

Yeah but after that supposed game they played against Houston the first week, and the way the Titans won their first, did it not seem pretty foregone that the Titans would make mincemeat of them???

I thought so!!!

The Texans played their whole season in one week - I didn't think you could get an accurate read on Dallas based on just that game - had a lot of people in the suicide pool pick Tennessee too - in general, I never pick a road team in a suicide pool.....that's why I am leaning towards NE over KC despite how bad Detroit has looked so far and how much GB is going to want to atone for their loss to Nawlins

To me in that first game the Texans didn't play all that well. Dallas did play that bad, though.

Anyway, it's a moot point as I am out of 1 suicide pool. Took the Chargers in the other, so I can keep going.

Yeah, GB showed me a lot yesterday. A lot of bad. Not sure I can pick them. NE looks great, but I fear for the letdown week at some point.

Pther possibilities include the Falcons at home against the Bengals. Depending on tonight, perhaps the Eagles at home against the 'Boys???

Someone on ESPN.com had a great line a week or two ago: "The Lions are five years away. From .500."

QOTY candidate. I saw that when it first aired. Almost cried laughing, one of those said laughing cries that you do when something hurts so bad that you have to laugh and cry at the same time. People here in Michigan love football. We've backed winners in Ann Arbor, frustrating occasional winners in East Lansing and losers in Pontiac (now Detroit) since the 1950s. How many other 2-14 teams in the league would sell out every home game before the season started, even with a new stadium. 64000 seats, gone. Gone for several years in advance, too. We are the most loyal (read: stupid) fans in the entire NFL, short of those poor bastards in Cleveland. Long suffering doesn't even begin to describe it.

Oh yeah, bet the house on the Ravens in your suicide pools. Those guys might be the only squad more inept offensively than the Lions and their defense is massively overrated.

raven's D isn't over-rated because they've had so much turnover in personel, that them going 8-8 would be over achieving...it's a rebuilding year after cap hell...think of it as a 16 week long preseason for them, that's how i'm looking at it...

...you mean you guys actually had HOPE for the Lions this year? C'mon. It's not like the Lions have ever gotten past the first freakin' round of the playoffs anyway, we'd need an uber-team to give us hope. Detroit won't be winning the Super Bowl anytime soon, but the Red Wings make up for this loss.

No Ahman Green, no Mark Tauscher...and Favre'll STILL torch the Lions' D for about 35 points. Plus, that oh-so-scary Detroit offense is just the tonic the Packer D needs to get its freakin' act together.

Hey yo, Harrington...Gbaja-Biamila 3:16 says YOU'RE NEXT! (Did I work enough catchphrases into that line?)

How about:

Hey yo, Harrington, Just bring it, cause Gbaja-Biamila 3:16 says You're Next SUCKA and you'll never EEEEEEEVER be the same AGAIN, Oh it's TRUE!

I agree with the above two posts. Packers/Lions this weekend will be a nationally televised pro-wrestling style bwatdown involving the Lions as the JTTS.

Lions are a few levels below JTTS. More along the lines of Indy Jobber.

They haven't stolen the Bengals gimmick. See, the Bengals gimmick is to get some pretty good players, play under your potential, and hate each other while doing it. Thus, causing a 3-4 win season.

The Lions are just shitty. They are the least talented team in the league right now. The Bengals were NEVER the least talented, they just don't care.

I don't normally post in NFL topics because I don't watch the NFL that much. But I do have to say Hell Yeah to Rex Grossman so far. I knew he wasn't just another Florida QB that would fail in the NFL but nobody would listen.
