Lions - 10 wins this season?

Playoffs too?

Yeah, right.

It turns out, their own players were delivering some of the worst blows. "There were knockdown, drag-out fights all the time last year," defensive tackle Cory Redding said. "There were cheap shots with guys getting leg-whipped and hit in the helmet."

Jeff Backus, who has endured each of the 72 losses since 2001, said last season's team-crumbling behaviour wasn't new.

"It's happened as long as I've been here," the offensive tackle said. "My first couple of years, there were lazy veterans that didn't want to be touched in practice. If you blocked them, they would try to get you back in a dirty way for the rest of that practice."

Well they are 3 and 1 so far, so maybe they can at least look decent. Of course as fans of the Lions we know they will usually do something to mess things up.
There playing @Washington today, hopefully you get the chance to catch the game in Warsaw.

Hmmm - they started 6-2 but finished 7-9. The same old Lions? I think so!
