There is a great article with an interview with Archie Manning on narrowly avoiding a winless season, and being the first team to ever lose to the Tampa Bay Bucs -- in their 27th game.
That's right -- even at 0-16 the Lions would also have to lose their first 9 games next season just to tie the longest losing streak in NFL history. While this Lions team may be bad, we can take comfort in the fact that they still have a long way to go to be termed worst ever. (after beating KC, then losing at GB they are currently on a 15 game losing streak dating back to last season.)
See, there are some happy thoughts!!
