No NFL team has ever done it-- lose atll 16 games in a regular season.  The Miami Dolphins went 1-15 last year and the Baltimore Ravens screwed up a certain win in Miami which cost the Dolphins their shot at infamy.  The Lions are 0-6 and you'd figure they'll lose at home this Sunday to the Washington Redskins.

     But Dan Orlovsky is probably capable of getting them a win at least a couple of times the rest of the way-- at least the way I see it at the moment.  It's hard to be that inept-- that's why no NFL team has ever lost them all.  Rod Marinelli's record is now 10-28, good enough to get many NFL coaches fired and even in the NFL, Marinelli is still on board when three other NFL coaches have already been fired this season.

     With each loss the Lions likely will try less and less, no matter what they say and frankly who can blame them?  They're playing for very little and many of them will be gone at the end of the season including all of the coaching staff.  It would take an incredible turnaround to save Marinelli-- he plods on and says all the right things, but this ship has sunk.  So now the curiosity value of how low the Lions can go kicks in to the end of the season.

     I can only image how rough some of these Ford Field fans will get.  The Lions doubtless will have some home games blacked out because who in his right mind would buy a ticket to see this product at this point?  The only people who'd probably like tickets are those visiting team fans who have a chance to see late season games in indoor comfort.

     I don't think the Lions will lose them all-- but don't sell 'em short either because they indeed are off to a great start.

    I doubt the Lions will lose all their games. As they get closer to a winless season they'll play with a lot more desperation (no player wants to be part of that kind of history) which has to be good for at least one win. But these are the Lions after all, anything is possible. A 0-16 season would be the perfect epitaph to Matt Millen's GM career.
