Twitter Reacts to Yet Another Embarrassing Detroit Lions Loss

After making their first postseason appearance in over a decade last year, the 2012 season began with a great deal of promise for the Detroit Lions.

That promise turned to disappointment fairly quickly, but after the team's latest effort against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15, a new emotion has surfaced—disgust.

The Lions were blown out on the road by a team that had lost nine straight games and were beaten by the Seattle Seahawks 58-0 last week. Detroit was defeated 38-10 by a Cardinals team led by Ryan Lindley.

Not surprisingly, the Twittersphere, from the media to Lions' fans, did not take the team's performance very well.

Even less surprisingly, the play of quarterback Matthew Stafford, who completed less than half his passes and threw two touchdown passes to Arizona defenders, was called into, well, play.

There really isn't a whole lot that can be said about losing by 28 points to a team that hasn't won a game in over two months. When Beanie Wells plods his way 31 yards for his third touchdown of the game against your defense, that isn't good.

It's also not as if the Lions are oblivious to just how badly they looked in Week 15, at least if the team's official Twitter feed is any indication.

So, after a shellacking like that, and with games remaining against the Atlanta Falcons and Chicago Bears, it may be fair to ask if the Lions will end the year losing eight in a row.

However, with 10 catches for 121 yards Sunday, Calvin Johnson is rapidly closing in on Jerry Rice's single-season record for receiving yardage, even as the sixth-year veteran made a bit of history in Week 15.

At least there's that.
