    There is a great exodus of the current NFL fan boys coming in the next few years. Brady, Ben and Rogers will all be retiring. Then what? The Kobe and Laker lover jumped to Golden State. The Jeter and Yanks lover are riding on the Cubs now. Where will these bandwagon fans run to once their aging heroes retire?

    I bet that they won't become Lions fans.

    I say they will loose alot of close games due to penalties and throwing for 5 yds on 3rd and 10. They will miss the playoffs by a game or two. They have never showed me any promise to think any different. I for one won't miss 4 hrs on a Sunday to watch them choke.

    Why do the Lions haters make comparisons to Lions teams from the past?

    Because history is bound to repeat itself. Over 50 years of doing jack squat kind of makes the point that the ownership and management they hire suck hiney. Take that jackass they call a head coach, the guy can't even read a clock, but gets upset when the press asks him why he does stupid stuff...........

    Come on give Bob Quin a few years at least! They caned most of the old stale coaching staff. It can't happen overnight. He had a lot of bs player to deal with that he was stuck with. Superbowl withing 5 years!

    I agree about Quin, as i've said I thought he made some nice moves further down in the draft and UDFA market and that's where you build a winning team due to the injury nature of the game. All teams have injuries, it's who you put in and can they play that's key, and that's where the previous incompetents failed.
    Signing first round picks to big contracts doesn't take talent, finding 2-5 rounders that can contribute does take talent and that's where Mayhew/Millen will go down in history as being straight up jokes.

    Nothing to compare really. I'm 45 years old and they have always sucked. So saying that one coach or QB is the best that we've ever had, when they can't even win a playoff game, is hilarious to me!!!

    Why anyone would be loyal to this franchise is mind boggling to me. They have never done anything to deserve a loyal fan base in my opinion. Every NFC team has won their division 3 times since the last time that the Lions have won theirs!!! LOL Expansion teams have more playoff success than the Lions!!!

    But hey, you keep fighting the good fight. The Fords will love you for it.

    What team should we compare them too? They surely can't be compared to teams that have won more than one playoff game in 60 years or teams that have made the Super Bowl. No other team has sucked like they have for the past 60 years so there isn't any comparison to any other team.
