It has to be done. Everyone should give up on the Lions now. What's the point in supporting them at all anymore? Another season of being embarrassed of every game, every drive, every play call. Year after year it's the same thing. Every news outlet in the state hypes the new season with how the team should know the plays better now or the troops should gel this season. Yet here we are again three games in.... No improvement in sight. It's a shame a talent like Calvin Johnson gets to play in Detroit. He deserves much better. He's pretty much the only weapon the offense so unless the other team really fucks up he's got every single defender in his shadow. No one can catch and it doesn't help that Kitna is absolutely abysmal. It's time to pack it in and bench him..... Bring in Stanton or Orlovsky there is not way they can possibly make the lions play any worse.
Sadly, Tron Kitna can't take all the blame. The defense is beyond all words to describe. I just call them not good, not good at all. My 4th grade peewee team tackled better than the Lions D. What the hell is going on here?
I listen to sports talk radio pretty much 100% of the time while in my car. A week or so ago there was an interview with ex Lions coach Steve Mariucci and he shed some light on the front office.
"They (Ford and Millen) made me play Harrington. Even after several bad showings and no observable signs of improvement, they still made me start Joey."
To make things worse, Steve was in pursuit of a very probable aquisition of Drew Brees only to be denied by management and ownership stating "Joey's our guy!"
This is insane, how does Goodell let this shit happen again and again... doesn't he plead with the Fords at owners meetings to clean house and actually try for once. But Ford is always too busy playing boss with better things to do than take care of his investments.
The one thing I don't understand is why people still show up to Ford Field every season. Why do you spend your money and support a shitty product. No one would buy a condom with "vent holes" advertised on it. Yet they still sell tickets..... They'll never change anything if people keep showing up. Yes, that means even you "Fire Millen pizza box, paper bag over the head guy".
Then I wake up this afternoon... Yes, this afternoon and I see on espn that if Ford Jr. was in control things would be different. So tell your bastard father you want in on the business and show him how things can be done for christ sake... I just want some change, that's all I ask. Until then I wash my hands of the Lions. Thank god hockey season is near.
