    I said 8-8 at first. But now I still believe they can pull out a win, or two. The team's ego wouldn't let it happen.

    I gave them a 4-12 to start. They may face the possibility of at lease being the UNDERDOG for all their remaining games. Look for 1-2 wins...no more.

    I only see one possible win. maybe on 12/21 the last home game of the season vs the Saints. They should be 0-14 at the time and will give the fans who show up for that game a Christmas present.

    Look for a lost on Thanksgiving day too, since they are playing the Titans the team currently with the best record in the league.

    The Lions will do what they always do. Lose just enough to put them out of reach for first pick overall.

    Of the remaining 10 games, only 2 are against teams with losing records.

    0-16! GO LIONS!

    They have a serious chance of going unfeated.

    I hope so. I'm getting a twisted pleasure out of seeing such a horrible organization fail so utterly.

    I'm thinking that they somehow manage to eek out 2 or 3 Ws.

    I WANT them to go 0-16 though to draw as much attention to their futility as possible. One of these days the Fords HAVE to give up the team. Perhaps being laughed out of the league is the way to go.

    Well the only thing they have going for them is that Cinn, looks to be even worse, played one more game and only scored one more point.

    As long as They keep losing Detroit can keep winnng... errrr losing. Detroit will be the worst team over a stretch of time, but never the worst in any given year. Thats our team, bad.... but not bad enough to get change at the top.


    LOL

    They may be able to buck the trend this time around.

    I hope they go 0-16...it's the only thing they could really accomplish at this point.

    I have a feeling Jason Hanson will screw it up. He'll hit a 50 yarder to win a game.

    By Lions standards, it's been a good year so far:

    ...Moving ahead with the notion that that Kitna is not the future of the Lions @ QB.

    ...Got rid of Millen.

    ...Fleeced the Cowboys for Roy Williams.

    Let the destruction & dismantling continue!
    Hopefully the laughter will continue to rise to a decibel level that the Fords won't want to hear it anymore.

    I think the Lions might as well go 0-16, so they can have the #1 pick in the draft and hope that the Cowboys will miss the playoffs so they can have another good first round pick, and then trade a pick and someone else for Vince Young from the Titans....:cheers:

    That's not a bad idea.

    With an 0 and 16 season in the books, Young will be able to play with zero pressure on him. Also, there won't be any fans there to boo him.

    The last thing this team needs is a suicidal QB! Although, that is a bit of a role reversal around here. Normally, its our QB that makes us want to kill ourselves!

    What would happen if you tried this strategy for a rebuild? It's very radical, so bear with me for a minute.

    Don't pay any more that the minimal value for the entire offense. These guys would consist of the most barebones players you can get.

    Allocate all financial resources to defensive studs. Pay twice the market rate to lure away the 11-15 best defensive players on the planet.

    Get a really, really good punter and a really good FG kicker.

    On offense, NEVER pass the ball. Every down should either be a hand off up the middle or a kneel down by the QB to run clock.


    The gameplan would be to see if you can score more with your special teams and defense than the other team can score against the greatest defense ever assembled in NFL history.

    Where would it go wrong?

    I think that strategy already exists. They're called the Chicago Bears.

    They scored 38 points last week!

    But yeah, that was what got me thinking along those lines. The problem with the Bears though, when they were dominating on D, is that they let Rex throw the ball. With this strategy, you should strive to have 0 turnovers on the season. Also, the Bears spent a lot of money on offensive players needlessly when they could have allocated it all toward D.
