New, comments

Once again, Detroit Lions players took to twitter to release some frustration after Thursday's brutal loss.

In the NFL world, teams ask that their players remain silent. To stray even a little bit from the very strict "it's-a-tough-loss" "we-need-to-play-better" script, could put the team at risk of the dreaded Distraction. But after a game like Thursday's loss to the Packers, some Lions players couldn't hold it in. They are humans, after all.

  • Eric Ebron spoke a thousand words with just one picture:
  • Darius Slay was brief with his reaction:
  • Devin Taylor, who committed* the facemask penalty on the penultimate play of the game, was understandably numb:
  • James Ihedigbo made his case by screenshotting the rulebook:
  • Darryl Tapp wasn't ready to hear any excuses about the officiating:
  • Joique Bell went with the ever-popular "Detroit vs. Everybody" mantra:
  • TJ Jones chose disbelief as his emotion du jour:
  • Some cruel human being decided it would be a good idea to record super fans Detroit Don and Superfan as the Hail Mary happened. DO NOT WATCH THIS. I REPEAT: DO NOT WATCH THIS.
