Detroit Lions

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly Of The 2008 Season

Jake KarmelCorrespondent IIFebruary 2, 2009

The 2008 NFL season, was one with many ups and downs, from the most decorated NFL franchise, to the winless one. What a season it was. 

The Good

Obviously the good is the Pittsburgh Steelers, they came out and won the Super Bowl, just like I knew they would. The Steelers, finished 15-4, on rout to their NFL record sixth Super Bowl victory. They physically dominated teams all year with the number one defense and time consuming offense. The Steelers battled injuries all year to Willie Parker, Hines Ward, and key members of the defense, and as well as the offensive line but still managed to have a terrific season.

The Bad

I have three words for you, Adam "Pacman" Jones. He was given yet another chance by Commissioner Goodell, but of course disappointed us all, by showing he hasn't changed a thing. After getting cleared to play by the NFL and Jerry Jones, who was willing to take another risk with the troubled player, but yet again, his past caught up with him, and he was axed by the Cowboys. Pacman Jones, just fills the stereotypical "thug" football player, that doesn't belong in the NFL.

The Ugly

As pictured above, this was the easisest call for the ugly. The Detroit Lions were the lucky winners, thanks to their perfect 0-16 record. That must of taken a lot of skill, I do give them credit for that, but seriously, 0-16? I don't feel like anything more should be said about them.

Hopefully, the 2009 season will be smoothee, and much prettier than the last.
