Lions lose another game. Let us count the many ways.

Lions kings of the jungle. Not in the jungle that is the NFL. Enough already!

Once again the Detroit Lions are proving why they are an inept football team. They were beaten by the Titans 47-10 in yet another Thanksgiving game. What many thought would be a Lions much needed victory, turned into another reason why this team is in trouble.

I just don't get it. How can a team that was 4-0 in the pre-season, 7-9 last year be win less this year. What went wrong? Is this any way of celebrating 75 seasons as a team? That your games keep getting blacked out.

I'm well aware that the team still needs to clean up from what I call Hurricane Millen. I also know that we made some bad moves by letting go of running back Kevin Jones, wide receiver Roy Williams,
line backer Boss Bailey and putting Mike Furrey on IR. But come on, we shouldn't be this bad.

Ok, ok, the firing of Matt Millen was one step in the right direction. So was the hiring of quarterback Dante Culpepper. Can the Fords turn this team around?
Or is William Ford Sr. clueless at running a team?

How can you be 7-9 last year and keep losing this year? The Lions should be a professional team, not look like a bunch of pre-schoolers. If Rod Marinelli is a good head coach, then why can't he turn this team around. Or is it the Lions fate that no matter who we get, they lose anyways.

If the Lions don't learn from their mistakes and correct their course this season and beyond, then we could even lose the privilege of playing on Thanksgiving Day.

They could have a perfect record of 16-0 losses. CUT THE CRAP, ENOUGH!
