Saturday open thread: Will you be watching the Detroit Lions on Sunday?

Are you still spending your Sundays with the Lions?

NFL: Detroit Lions at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Last week felt like the final straw for many. For the second straight week, the Detroit Lions were essentially blown out by a mediocre opponent, pushing the team to a 3-5 record with an extremely outside chance of turning this thing around and making a playoff run.

The seats of head coach Matt Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn are hotter than ever, as it seems like both the talent and the strategy on the field is lacking in several ways. And based on our comment section this week, people have just had enough. Confidence in this team is at an all-time low and lower than any other team in the NFL right now.

However, this week they have a real chance to win. The Washington Football Team isn’t very good, and Detroit is actually Week 10 home favorites against the NFC East team.

But will the game even be worth watching? Two bad teams with no likely playoff stakes on the line? Is that worthy of your time on a Sunday afternoon?

Today’s Question of the Day is:

Will you be watching Lions vs. Football Team on Sunday?

My answer: Obviously, I am obligated to watch on Sunday if I’m going to actually do my job properly. But I am curious to see what you all are thinking. Obviously, this isn’t a perfect cross section of Lions fans. If you’re reading an article about the Lions on a Saturday morning, you’re obviously a little more devoted to the team than some casual fans. Still, I’m intrigued to see how many of you will be spending your Sundays elsewhere for the time being.
