I'd rather be the blissfully ignorant than continually frustrated. A "My dad could beat up your dad" sort of attitude no matter what. I understand listening to this sort of fan rant on and make highly illogical arguements can get old real fast, but I'd much rather be that sort of fan than the "fan" I am now. I'm the sort of fan that believes this from ESPN...
Here's a fun game to play with your friends. Name five good players on the Detroit Lions. Just five.
There's receiver Calvin Johnson, of course. Linebacker Ernie Sims is well-respected. Center Dominic Raiola won't embarrass you. Neither will left tackle Jeff Backus. And then there's Roy Will… oh, wait. Not anymore.
It's simple: The NFL's least-talented roster makes the Lions the worst team in football. Seven years under president/general manager Matt Millen have left them in need of a serious personnel influx. They'll eventually get a boost from Tuesday's trade of receiver Roy Williams, but for now, his departure has further undermanned the team.
Even with Williams, the Lions were 0-5 and ranked near the bottom in every important statistical category. Their offense ranks No. 30, two ahead of their dead-last defense. They can't run (No. 30) or stop the run (No. 31), and their quarterback is still learning the dimensions of the end zone.
Yes, quarterback Dan Orlovsky -- who has replaced injured Jon Kitna -- got a bit disoriented Sunday at the Metrodome. As he scrambled to his right, Orlovsky heard the whistle and saw that play had been halted. He stopped, looked down and realized he had run three yards out of the back of the end zone for a safety.
You've heard of teams beating themselves? Ultimately, the Lions' margin of defeat Sunday was two points: 12-10. Case closed.
