Well this is it, Lions fans. The end of the season is this Sunday. Another year in the books, and then we begin the eight month journey to the 2018 preseason before we get to see any Lions football again.
This isn’t just the end of the season, though. This will be my final Random Stats piece ever. I have truly loved doing these pieces and getting to answer all kinds of crazy questions over the last two years. But all things must come to an end. It’s Random Stats time.
So in Random Stat’s final hour, it’s all about you guys and the questions. So let’s jump right into the social media stuff.
How many times have the lions won against the packers that didn’t have a QB named Farve or Rodgers?— Griffin (@gfitty09) December 28, 2017
These two guys are the worst thing that’s ever happened to the Lions. The Lions are 12-36 against the Packers when Brett Favre or Aaron Rodgers are under center. Without those guys, it hasn’t been so bad. The Lions are 57-64 against the Favre-less, Rodgers-less Packers all time.
What is the Lions all time record for the last game of the season when they are for sure not going to the playoffs?— Ryan Collins (@Shafty_Von_Hack) December 28, 2017
It’s not good at all. The Lions are 18-44 in the last game of the season when they don’t make the playoffs. The good news is the last time they missed the playoffs, they won their last game. The bad news is that it doesn’t matter at all.
Lions record against GB with a PAC-12 QB excluding Rodgers.— Domenic Spigarelli (@DSpig26) December 28, 2017
The answer is easy. It’s 1-0. Brett Hundley is the only other Pac-12 quarterback in Packers history. Yes, that’s crazy, but it’s so Green Bay right? I imagine this is how the Packers organization reacted when Aaron Rodgers first arrived in town.
Who are your top 5 favorite Mikes of all time, who are your top 5 favorite Jims of all time, and who would win in an Anchor Man style brawl?— poopdongokon suh (@gameofdabs) December 29, 2017
Alright here we go. In no order.
Killer Mike, Mike “The Miz” Mizanin, Mike Jones (who?), Mike McMahon and me because you’ve got to love yourself, people.
As far as Jims go, It’s Jim Ross, My Uncle Jim, Jim Halpert, Jim Carrey and Jimmer Fredette.
Both teams would die upon impact. I would be the only survivor and it would be up to me to do all of their jobs. It will be hard. But I’m up to the task.
