Gone but not Forgotten - Fan Favorites

Fellow Lions' fans PODer's - continuing the legend series, I shift focus to Fan Favorites and some of the names may overlap..

as the draft nears and a new season rises, we will be welcoming another edition of our beloved Detroit Lions.

We've not had the championships we're rooting for, but we've had some great players, good community guys, funny guys, and more play for the team. We've enjoyed some talented players and have had our favorites to root for....which got me to thinking about our Gone but Not Forgetten Fan Favorites Detroit Lions.

Now there's some obvious choices for this list - made up of fan favorites, and some could be off this current squad of guys we love to root for. Some easy choices that come to mind are:

Calvin Johnson, Chris Spielman, Cory Schlesinger, Barry Sanders, Billy Sims, Herman Moore, and going further back, and to me it's always fun to think about these guys and their playing days.

Since that's such a short list, let's add to this list of favorite Lions - Gone but Not Forgotten, but let's leave it as guys that no longer are playing just to provide some more framework for the question. (I 'll give a shout out to Nate Burleson who really seemed to bring some positive shine/press to the Lions we've not seen in a while)

A tip o my cap to the names we come up with - the Lions' fan in me appreciates the effort
