The Detroit Lions are not in a good spot right now. While some fans were optimistic going into the season, the current record is not exactly a surprise to many. Unfortunately, this is a position that Lions fans know very well: essentially out of the playoff chase by Week 10, staring at a good, but not great, draft pick.
This is tough, and not a lot of fun. Those hoping for the team to tank are willing to subject themselves to mediocre football for the next eight weeks. Those clinging on to the last shred of hope are setting themselves up for big disappointment.
