Monday open thread: How would you troll a Lions rival on a billboard?

Time to create your own troll job billboard.

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

One of the most heated, spiteful rivalries in the NFL is between the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints. I’ve spoken to plenty of fans on both sides and I’ve never seen that kind of unapologetic vitriol between two sets of NFL fans. It feels personal on a very deep level.

So it comes as little surprise to me that New Orleans fans are still be extremely petty about the Falcons’ epic Super Bowl collapse, even though it wasn’t at the hands of the Saints.

Saints fans are trying to fund this billboard to be posted both in New Orleans and Atlanta:

Even though the Saints don’t really have much of a leg to stand on—they were 0-2 against the Falcons in 2016—this is still some pretty solid trolling.

So today’s Question of the Day—shameless stolen from SB Nation—is:

What would you put on a billboard to troll the Lions’ biggest rival?

My answer: My response to this question was a simple and succinct “#WeOwnTheBears.” This has been one of our mottos over the past few years, now that Detroit has beaten Chicago in seven of their last eight games.

However, I pose this question to you, Pride of Detroit followers. I know you all have the creativity and proper hatred to make some of the best trolling billboards in the country. It can be a picture. It can simply be a sentence or phrase. Photoshop is highly encouraged.

If we get some really good responses, I just may take the best and make a separate post out of them. So let’s hear it.

Your turn.
