The Best at Being the Worst!

They always say, "Be the best at something," and the Lions are "The Best at Being the Worst!" I think we have an argument that the Lions are the worst Sports Franchise in all sports history. I've heard the Pirates, the Marlins and the Knicks; but look at the Big Picture. The Ford Family (was) one of the richest in the league! They have top of the line facilities, payroll, have hosted 2 Superbowls, even a lock on the Thanksgiving Day Game and nothing to show for it - nothing! They have 6 consecutive post season losses since 1991! They have only gone 6 times in 17 years and lost every time?!?! Nothing since a "Football Title," in 1959? That's enough to make you cry and make Barry quit!

With all the drafts they have had ... that's coming down from the top ... that's horrible ownership! Does everyone remember the year that Leno would tell a joke about the Lions every Monday after their inevitable loss? (SUBMIT) I even heard Chandler from "Friends," rip on the Lions during their Thanksgiving Day episode!!! Can't blame their writers, it's part of many Americans Thanksgiving Day traditions for the Lions to lose. It seems like the only time they win is when we need them to lose: at the end of 2006, they beat Dallas to lose a better draft pick. Don't get me wrong, I would never play to lose; but that was priceless. And, what other franchises have picketers protesting at every game...? It can sound funny, but it's really not funny thinking about all the hard-working people that spend huge amounts of cash for tickets just see idiots like Millen flush seasons down the toilet. And, what is his punishment ... an extension and a raise!

My thought: you can't build a winning team around a mediocre Quarterback. Send in UR Suggestions to fix the Franchise and maybe the Ford's will be "ignorant" enough to take some free advice ... UR Staff
