The Detroit Lions are doing it again. If Aaron Rodgers was not sidelined with an injury, Detroit would probably not be clinging to first place in the NFC North division. The Lions have lost three of their last four games, including a 34-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. As usual, their fans are starting to get restless.
According to wide receiver Nate Burleson, even the homeless are becoming disgusted with the Lions.
Nate Burleson on radio says he got heckled by a homeless man while doing charity work today: "Man, you guys are sorry. Same old Lions.'"

The Lions could catch a break if the Chicago Bears lose to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night, which would give Detroit sole possession of first place in the division. Still, they have not been impressive. I’d venture to say that they have looked better than the “same old Lions,” but anything less than a playoff appearance would be a letdown given some of the injuries across the NFC North.
