It really does suck to be a fan of the forlorn never-been-to-the-Super-Bowl-or-even-come-very-close Detroit Lions. Lowered expectations are a way of life. "Next year!" the everlasting battle cry (and that is in OCTOBER!)  icon_really_happy_guy.gif "But look at our hockey/basketball/baseball team!" the yearly defense. Oy!

Even Barry Sanders knew it was a sinking ship.

Can a fellow fan or two share my pain here? Even if you have another fave team. Maybe the Browns, or the Cardinals. Anyone? Anyone?

Awww, BSG, what a shame. I've been following the NFL since 1992/93 season, and I can't remember them having better than 0.500 record (am I wrong?)

I'd change to hockey mate, I'm a RedWings fan and have a Sergei Federov replica shirt wink.gif ....just look at the hall-of-famers there....Brendan Shanahan, Stevey 'Y', Chris Chelios (don't tell the Blackhawks fans tongue.gif ), Dominic Hasek.....I could go on.

The Niners need a better coach and better organization. If they do those things, I wouldn't be surprised if they got into the NFC Divisionals.

Sorry, Can't help you out BSG.  confused13.gif

In baseball I'm a pirates fan so I do know what you mean. But being a steelers fan, the worse year I ever seen them have was 5-11 One time. But I do know how ya feel since I'm a pirates fan.... all I do is hang in there and hope that next season is better, don't forget to stay loyal!!!!!!

I know exactly what you mean about the Pirates. Its beginning to be the same way with the Penguins. Let me rephrase that. It IS that way with the Penguins.

I was a 49er's fan when that Joe guy was there. After that I gave up even though Steve Young had a few good years. yes.gif

It could be worse BSG you could be a Viking fan. A Team year after year who seem to have it all but always seem to choke or have disaster strike at the most inopportune times.Remember 4th and 25 on the last play of the game last year against Arizona to knock them out of the playoffs.Remember the chip shot field goal against Atlanta years back that cost them a trip to the super bowl,hell our kicker set a record for most consecutive field goals ( 2 years) until that one shanked left and what about the Hail Mary against Dallas, Stauback launched a brilliant career at our expense, the prevent defense was originated from that one play and i can only imagine what heartache will be bestowed upon us this sunday against the hated Packers.So see BSG it could be worse you could be cheering for the purple and gold this sunday. trink39.gif  yes.gif

Steve was awesome though Joe was the man.  Both were top guns in my book.
