Those of us who endured the first two miserable Buc years, also, know that team had zero talent with the exception of Lee Roy Selmon.

Give the '76 Bucs a break. At least they were an expansion team. The Lions are one of the oldest, most respected teams in the NFL. What's THEIR excuse for a season like this?
