So we all know the Detroit Lions went 0-16 last season, but did you know that they also lost their last game of the 2007 season?
Interesting to note: The Lions went 1-7 in their final eight games of that same 2007 season.
Imagine if they had gone 0-8 to end the season?
We would now be looking in awe of a 24-game losing streak, just two shy of the Bucs record of 26.
Sadly, or thankfully, that is not the case. The Lions are on a mere 17-game losing streak.
What does this mean?
It means unless they start out 0-10, they will not own the longest regular season losing streak in NFL history.
Let's look at their 2009 schedule:
Chicago: A maybe, depending on the quarter back situation for both teams.
Green Bay: At home, there's a slight possibility, but Pack defense will probably be better.
Minnesota: Unlikely, Frerotte will not be Vikes quarterback.
St. Louis: Rams have made improvements, but this game will probably be too close too call.
Cleveland: If the Browns have a quarter back...still 50/50.
Philly or Washington: No and no.
Chicago: In Chicago? The Bear's fans would kill their own team.
Green Bay: Winless (0-18) now at Lambeau?
Tampa or New Orleans: Both long-shots, but the Saints defense has blown games.
I predict the Lions go 3-13 myself.
Once the times are released I will go game by game.
