Man, I feel bad for those players. Theyre really not as bad as their record. I love my UCF knights but, do you think the fact that there are three UCF players on that team has any thing to do with their record? Micheal Gaines, Daunte Culpepper, and Kevin Smith. Hmmmmm. Maybe a new coach?

Go Lions and Knights.

Lions make NFL history all the time! They ran off one of the best running backs in NFL History! They continually stick with losing qb's that are obviously not going to make a difference. They stick with coaching staffs that are not winning. They make history almost every year being the laughing stock of the NFL. The list can go on and on. The Lions suck and it's only two men at fault. It starts at the top and I think Ole Man Ford is to braindead to make decissions and the Kid Ford is just as dumb as Ole Man Ford when his two braincells were working! Lucky for the Fords that they were born with the Silver Spoon shoved deeply (not in there mouth) where the sun don't shine!

I went to the very last championship game Detroit played in. That was in 1957. I also attended EVERY Thanksgiving Day game for 6 straignt years. Not bad for a kid with a dollar an hour job.

I am heart sick over what has happened. Detroit can be a teriffic sports town - given evan a half-hearted attempt to win a game.

Lions owner - Mr. William Ford (thank God he has no real power in the atuo company of the same name) should hang his head in shame. He's hanging on to the team for no other reason than to make a big profit when he finally sells the team.

I hope I am around long enough to wish the new owner, good luck (he'll need it).
