Lions fans, let me know when your Parade is and where to park.  I'll return the favor from your fans who came down to commiserate with us Browns fans at our Parade.

Detroit in the middle of January?  They'll have to set the town on fire just to stay warm.

The last Detroit-based football team to win a championship?  The 1983 Michigan Panthers of the USFL.

Detroiters will never have a championship-level football team until the Ford family sells it to someone competent.  Unless a new league opens up and gives them another Panthers-like title.

This team is worse than the 2008 team.  What sucks is they will get the first pick in the draft and what QB is there that is worthy of that?

Pretty sure they were worse in '08 and '09 as well, even though they won  a couple games the one season.   The '01 and '02 teams were spectacularly bad as well.   I'd guess this season's edition will win 2 or 3 games before it's all over.

What's weird is, Bill's lack of coaching lately has me almost wishing that puppet Patricia was back.

\never thought it'd be the defense's fault we were 2-4

How can you be that bad for that long? I mean, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have won two Super Bowls. Two! Baltimore, after moving from Cleveland, has two more. The Chargers have at least appeared in the Super Bowl.

I'm having terrible doing brain stuff, which is totally normal I'm definitely not having a stroke, but that slogan WAS a real slogan at some point right? Only reason I'm questioning it is because I don't remember it being for Ford, but no other mfr is fitting in my totally not stroking out brain

The last time the lions won an nfl championship Bobby Layne was their qb.

Definitely real, from the era of Chevy trucks using "Like a rock". Want to say early 90s.

You obviously don't get it.  Mac Jones in Detroit wouldn't be Mac Jones in New England.  Same as Stafford isn't the same in Los Angeles as he was in Detroit.  Detroit is the NFL's version of Pittsburgh - no matter how good an individual player is, the team's vortex of suck drags them down.

Stafford was good in Detroit. Calvin good. Barry good. It's not the good the vortex sucks from Detroit, it's the farking support that gets sucked to other NFC teams.

Detroit Drive won 4 of the first 6 Arena Bowls.  Last one in 1992.  I mean, they count.  Even if I did get free tickets the day of those games at the Riverview Big Boy

When do they start biting kneecaps?

Seriously, though, if there was any team that would go 0-17 in the first year of a 17-game season, it would be the Lions.

Goff obviously isn't amazing, but they did him no favors.  He has, quite literally, no one to throw to.

Call my overly optimistic, but I like this GM.  I'll give more than 1 draft of a rebuild before yelling to slash and burn.

Goff would be a nice backup QB.  He doesn't have the arm nor the legs to be a difference-maker QB in the NFL.  I liked the Stafford trade and taking a chance on Goff was reasonable but it is clear they need a stud QB and he's not it.

Only Brady could put up points with these skill position players. Is Goff the answer?  Probably not.  But this season really isn't evidence of that.

Goff's biggest value to the Lions was the extra 1st round draft pick the team got for taking on his contract. He's here for two years until they get the right quarterback in the draft to replace him. They'll build up the lines and support staff so when they get a top tier rookie, he'll have every chance to win.

If they're smart enough to do that, yes. While you most likely won't get a QB like Mahomes, look at the KC method of building the rest of the team first, and then getting the QB.
