You're right, but in their mind......................It'll all come tumbling down.
I'm amazed how every year the Lions are able to inspire the optimists to come out of the woodwork to root for the team. We all want them to win, but some people always envision at least 10 wins.......each season...When there's no logical reason to do so.
And why not? We've seen turn arounds in the NFL. I know it is Lions, but there is still statistical probability that it will happen at some point.
Calvin is not the brightest bulb in the package: 6 year dealio. Why would anybody commit to 6 years of losing? He should have said, one year deal only. Then become a free agent.
Hey, he's another believer. We've had a few of those, including Joey blue eyes.
I was a believer for over 40 years. Now I have become a rebrobate and have abondoned the faith. I still have the love for them though. I'm just repressing it until they show me they can at least get to 500 someday before I die.
I guess I've been "luckier" if you can call it that since I've only been following Lions since mid 90's. During this time, the Tigers were in the same state of shambles and managed to finally rise out of the ashes to be relevant again. So, hopefully, at least in my mind, Lions could do the same.
Oops. My time expired and I can't change it. The word is reprobate.
For at least $27M...I think I'd find myself commiting to the big L on my forehead for a few years. I wonder what trade clauses are included in the contract?
If college players truly cared about WINNING..........and had at least a sense of history, they would refuse to sign with the LIONS.
Nemo, you sound about as disgusted as I am.
The history of the franchise indicates failure unseen by most professional sports. However, on the Detroit New Lions Forum, all but one of about 40 people are predicting at least the same record as last season, vast majority see signifigant improvement. Discusting.............
