Remember when we were better than New Orleans?
Remember that Christmas day not too long ago, the Lions rushed out their field goal unit and Jason Hanson kicked a field goal as time expired. That year once again the Lions were battling for high draft picks and that field goal dropped the Lions about 6 places, although it was an awesome victory on Christmas day.
The point is, the Lions were bad and the Saints were worse. Now the Saints are in the Superbowl. I feel like the Lions are living on the island of misfit toys, always waiting for next year to come.
So the Saints now go to the Superbowl for the first time, and the Lions are still bad and heading into the draft with the second pick overall.
It’s worse than the island of misfit toys, because the Lions seem to be all by themselves on that island, all the other toys have found homes, including now the Saints.
