Podcast: How can the Lions offense be this bad?

Baffling, utterly baffling questions remain as the Lions season is all but doomed.

NFL: Detroit Lions at Carolina Panthers Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

November is nearly gone and the Lions feel the icy hand of death upon whatever lingering flames of hope there remained. It is all silent now. Hushed and empty is the womb of the sky. This team is shut out; the first time since Daunte Culpepper was under center. Unspeakably bleak.

Just when you think you’ve seen the deepest levels of depravity, the Lions dig just a little bit deeper. Technically, this game was within reach for over half the time; but that’s a bald-faced lie if you take half a second to realize the Lions couldn’t put together a drive lasting more than six plays at any point in the first half.

How to break this one down? PODcast has never had that issue, nor we have it here. Ire is saved for the offense, but the defense is not spared either. And for this coaching staff, the question is no longer “if” but “when?”

I’m not saying there’s a survivor pool among the staff, but it might behoove us to start taking wagers. We discuss that and the immediate future for an aimless Lions team that just watched the Lions lose to a quarterback from the XFL.

The recorder program kept crashing on us, which seems fairly appropriate for this mess.
