Talk of 0-16 Two Seasons In A Row?



This is my first ever FanPost so if I get this wrong, don't shoot me. So before I anger the entire Lions fan base, let me start by saying I in no way believe something as horrific as 0-16 twice is even possible. Just with Detroit's  upgrades on Defense, specifically the Linebacker core, we should be able to muster out a few wins this season. But looking at the schedule this year, it's arguably possible that the Lions will be 0-6 going into the BYE week.

So I pose to you this question:

How much talk is there going to be in the media about another possible 0-16 season for the Lions, if they're 0-6 at the break? We already know the big story with the Lions at the start of this season is going to be "Can rookie coach Schwartz dig the Lions out of an 0-16 hole with his revamped Defense and No. 1 QB draft pick?" But is the media going to jump on the possibility of another winless season for the Lions if they're 0-6 at the BYE week? I know statistically it's almost impossible. I just hope news outlets don't turn this possible story into a media frenzy like, say, Brett Favre's Viking mess. I, for one, will quickly get sick of hearing any jabbering about 0-16 twice. Just want to get the thoughts of my fellow Lions fans on what your takes are on the matter.

Is this something you see the media covering like crazy? Or will there be bigger team stories this season to overshadow the lowly Lions?
