Comparison?


I’m surprised no one posted, or mentioned this. If someone did I apologize, I didn’t see it. But the New Jersey Nets went 0-18 before finally securing their first victory of the season. I know there are 82 games in a season, but being unable to pull out a victory in 18 attempts in the NBA is a much more dubious honor than going 0-16 in the NFL. At least in my opinion.

 

In the NFL a team has a week to prepare for the Sunday showdown. In the NBA you play every other night, sometimes in back to back nights. It’s common that NBA players will coast through a game, allowing a team that isn’t as talented as the other to squeak one out. I have to believe that towards the end of last season teams focused on the Lions, not wanting to be “that team” that lost to our beloved franchise.

 

Do I think there will ever be another 0-16 team? No, Roger Goodell will get his way and the season will be extended to 18 games. Will there be another Ofer? Yes, will it happen next year? No, but it will.

 

On another note I love my Lions, and hope they win every week.  I really do, but how ironic is it that the year they play themselves out of the #1 pick there is an absolute stud. So frustrating!
