The bright spot of the game? Barry Sanders and 0ther Lions past greats were in the house for the all-time team honors as the Lions celebrate their 75th year as a franchise. Watching Barry come out of the tunnel during half-time was the best moment of the game. That, and the cotton candy.
The despair is palpable at all times, and the fans left in droves from the third quarter on. By the time the clock wound down, we were among the dozen or so fans left in the stadium. Jacksonville lost last week to the Bengals, the sole other team without a win. Not so today. We saw a good old-fashioned beat-down.
So, although the Tigers were a giant bust last year, although it was an embarrassment of epic proportions, at least we have talent, and hope for the future. What do the Lions have? At least they DON'T have Matt Millen any longer.
