  1. I’m proud of my Lions this season for overachieving but we finished like female dogs and Bob Quinn got a lot of work to do on this team in the offseason I hope we can build up a beast maybe during the 2018 season we can make our run then. My only problem with this team going forward is Jim Caldwell I don’t think this is the coach that should be running our team that dude is horrible.

    Good to see the Lions becoming the Chicago Cubs of the NFL a loser organization bringing in high ratings to the league. Good luck to SoB’s Giants today I’ll be rooting for them but I won’t be watching any football today I got to take a break from the NFL after last night’s hard loss.

    • Thanks, Larry. Fox is wasting the NFL playoff lead-out this Sunday and Jan. 15 on a 27-year old cartoon. How about slotting The Mick at 8pm to try building it into a new hit?

      • Yeah I agree they’re definitely wasting the NFL playoff lead-out I’ve been pointing that out so much over the past few years in how FOX should take advantage of the huge lead-ins they have with these January games by getting their new shows sampled more. The Simpsons don’t need that boost at all and this is why FOX is way behind the other three networks and will stay behind them for years to come.

        • Using the same bad producers making bad, low-rated shows to make all their shows also has something to do with it… 🙂
