Detroit Lions:  7 Lions Who Are Not Getting the Respect They Deserve

No respect, no respect. These seven Lions are not getting the love they deserve.

The Lions are 5-0 for the first time since first-class postage stamps cost three cents. How long ago was that? The Dodgers still played in Brooklyn and the iconic ’57 Chevy was not even built! We are talking a looong time ago.

The overhaul of the 53-man roster is almost as impressive as their record.  Within the past 36 months, the roster has undergone a transformation that would make Chaz Bono’s head spin. Sorry, Freudian slip there.

So how can any Lion be under-appreciated during their perfect five-game start? Given what longtime Lions fans have suffered through, Dave Bing should have already stamped 53 keys to the city.  Maybe that's a bit premature, but restaurateurs should be clamoring for players to patronize their establishments for complimentary meals.

Wouldn't you enjoy sending an appreciative brewski across the room to your favorite Lion? Hell, let's not stop there; Apu should be giving the ball boys free Squishees!

With a nod to the great Rodney Dangerfield, who left us seven years ago, I offer you seven of his best one-liners and Lions who have received “no respect!”
