Tuesday open thread: What will the Lions’ record be at the bye week?

The possibility of this team heading into October without a win is very, very real.

Call this Overreaction Tuesday, call this SOL mentality, call it whatever you want: the Detroit Lions are not in good shape—and their upcoming schedule isn’t going to do them any favors.

After the Detroit Lions let a 17-point lead in the fourth quarter slip away against the Chicago Bears in the season opener, the Lions are going to do everything they can to put it in the past and move on to their Week 2 opponent: the Green Bay Packers. A trip this early in the season to Lambeau Field would typically bring a sigh of relief from Lions fans looking to dodge a game marred by inclement weather, but the offensive firestorm Aaron Rodgers and Co. unleashed on that Minnesota Vikings defense is what goes bump in the night for anyone looking at this Lions defense after Sunday.

Which brings us to today’s Question of the Day...

What will the Lions’ record be at the bye week?

The sky is falling and this could get ugly in a hurry.

In Week 3, the Lions have a matchup with an Arizona Cardinals team that just knocked off the defending NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers on the road. Side note: I’m not sure whether or not home field advantage is much of an advantage at all when the crowd noise they’re pumping in is constant and with little rhyme or reason.

Detroit wraps up their pre-bye week schedule in Week 4 when they take on the New Orleans Saints, hot off an opening week victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Take part in our poll to let us know just how truly low you’re feeling about the Lions after they snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
