Lions may very well be the worst team in NFL History

As I was munching down my last bits of turkey and stuffing on Thanksgiving, I finally wrapped my thoughts around the fact that the putrid Lions maybe the NFL’s first 0-16 team in the league’s 89-year history.  The 0-14 expansion 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers have nothing on former GM Matt Millen’s and head coach Rod Marinelli’s group that has become the NFL’s laughingstock – have lost 19 of their last 20 games.  Not even NFL ultimate retread quarterbacks Daunte Culpepper and Drew Henson can keep this horrible team from losing.  Against the Titans, it was embarrassing as Tennessee tried to call off the dogs.  But the Lions kept putting them in the red-zone after turnovers, sacks, and overall poor play. 

The situation was described best by longtime Lions kicker Jason Hanson when he said, “All we’re doing right now is making everybody just laugh.”  Now you have to look at the Lions final 4 games (MIN, @IND, NO, and @GB) and search real hard to find a win.  I know the 1976 Bucs will be rooting against them so they can get rid of this horrible dishonor.

  1. My vote is still for the ’76 Bucs, but these Lions are a very close second.

  2. Mike,

    Do you still think so?
