Detroit Lions make history – not in a good way though

With their loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, the Detroit Lions have made NFL history by becoming the first 0-15 team and set the stage for a perfectly imperfect season.

“Awful, embarrassing,” Lions quarterback Dan Orlovsky said. “We stunk. Any bad adjective you can use, throw it in there.”

The Lions try to avoid the dubious distinction of finishing 0-16 at Green Bay, where they haven’t won since 1991.

“It’s very real,” center Dominic Raiola said. “It’s right there in front of us.

“It’s pretty sad that its come to this.”

“This is one big nightmare,” Raiola said. “You want it to end, but it hasn’t ended yet.”

Fans got excited when the Lions finally fired team president Matt Millen following an 0-3 start and a 31-84 mark over seven-plus seasons, but the team hasn’t been able to overcome the mess he left behind.

After the game, the Lions released a statement in which team owner William Clay Ford said he expects interim general manager Martin Mayhew and executive vice president Tom Lewand to return next season.

The front office has about four months to figure out who it will take with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, a slot that was sealed Sunday.

The Lions were routed in their first four games, had a shot to win each of their next four, then showed flashes of competitiveness and extended periods of poor play.
