A win over the Green Bay Packers has been rare for the Detroit Lions over the past few years. Them Lambeau boys have won four straight, and some of those Lions losses were the most frustrating we’ve ever witnessed. (don’t click that)
So you’ll have to forgive me for dunking on Green Bay because of an extremely modest free agent signing that may be so small it doesn’t even impact the compensatory pick formula. But we’re Detroit Lions fans. We take Ws when we can, and there’s absolutely nothing more beautiful in this world than an upset Packers fan.
And don’t kid yourself, Packers fans are devastated right now. The Lions signing running back Jamaal Williams to a two-year deal worth up to $7.5 million may not seem like a monumental move, but he was extremely well regarded in Green Bay among the fanbase due to his increasingly solid play, and his affable personality.
So now, we present: A Series of Sad Packers Fans. Enjoy.

Wish him the best, but wish he was playing on the AFC and not the Lions.— Patrick Taylor (@ptaylor1976) March 17, 2021

I'll always adore him, this is really sad.— Clyde Beddoe (@beddoe_clyde) March 17, 2021
I don't like this ♂️. Not a fan of seeing a player from a team I support to go play for a team I'm against!!! Loved him as a player!— kings_korner ️ (@timking718) March 17, 2021
And believe it or not, there were even a couple Packers fans praising the Lions for the move.
Lions got a good RB. Swift/Williams will be pretty good.— Mitch Deuster (@MDeuster) March 17, 2021
