In looking at my lineups for my various leagues, I can't help but notice that the Saints open up the year against the Lions. That's good news for fantasy owners with Saints players on their rosters, but not if you're a fan from Detroit. I feel bad for Detroit fans. Seriously. Being a Packer fan, I know what last year's losing season felt like, but only a true Lions fan can tell you what 0-16 feels like.
I doubt that the Lions can repeat their 0-16 season. Statistically difficult. I'm going on record here: They will win at least 1 game this year! Matt Stafford, Calvin Johnson, and Kevin Smith will lead the Lions to a win in 2009. Maybe even two!
With that in mind, I present to you some of the best Lions jokes from around the web. But first, check out what The Onion had to report:
