I need to vent a moment so please bare with me but the Detroit Lions don't get respect for their good or their bad.
In a small period of time, two subjects came up ... best NFL player of all time which sprang into most exciting running back of all time. Then worse - luckiest Executive in sports despite their resume due to the recent Isaish Thomas - Knick signings.
Hmmm most exciting back canidate - Barry Sanders?
Luckiest Sportts Executive depsite resume -- Matt Millen?
Naw ... Jim Brown, Emmitt Smith and Lane Kifin.
this is why this Lions blog community rocks ... at least we get it.
Emmitt Smith ... Good yes, exciting No ... Imagine if he did not have a hall-of-fame line in front of him. Barry Sanders making a PBandJ sandwich would be more exciting. The only way this will change in the media is if we win more games or join the NFC East. Just saying.
