Remember back when the Detroit Lions had rushed for 249 yards against the Miami Dolphins for their first decisive road win of the year? A couple days later, the Lions would trade for arguably the best run-stuffer in the entire NFL for just a fifth-round pick. The Lions were riding a two-game winning streak and sat just a game out of first place in an extremely competitive NFC North.
Man, that must’ve been a good two months ago. No? That was just two weeks ago? Did I time travel? What year is this? Who’s president? Wait, don’t answer that last one.
Yes, the sky was blue, the weather was warm, and the Lions were good. All of that is gone now.
After two consecutive blowout losses and the trade of Golden Tate, Lions fans have pretty much lost all confidence in the team.
