How bad will it be?

Posted by lozenp on April 11, 2007

So the Lions 2007-08 schedule was released today, leading every die-hard Lions fan to ask: how bad will the team be this season?

I took a quick look at the schedule, here’s my take:

Week 1: Sept. 9, at Oakland, 4:15 p.m., Fox – Win, 1-0, Super Bowl here we come
Week 2: Sept. 16, vs. Minnesota, 4:05 p.m., Fox – Loss 1-1, we can still go 15-1
Week 3: Sept. 23, at Philadelphia, 1 p.m., Fox – Loss, big, 1-2, umm, 14-2
Week 4: Sept. 30, vs. Chicago, 1 p.m., Fox – Loss, 1-3, crap, here we go again
Week 5: Oct. 7, at Washington, 1 p.m., Fox – Loss 1-4, it’s officially Lions season now, let the depression begin
Week 6: Bye – Tie 1-4-1, wait, you can’t tie the bye week?
Week 7: Oct. 21, vs. Tampa Bay, 1 p.m., Fox – Win 2-4, and the peasants rejoiced
Week 8: Oct. 28, at Chicago, 1 p.m., Fox – Loss, embarrassingly, 2-5, cue up the QB controversy between Kitna and Brady Quinn
Week 9: Nov. 4, vs. Denver, 1 p.m., CBS – Win, 3-5, Dre Bly allows final TD pass on blown coverage in first game against Lions
Week 10: Nov. 11, at Arizona, 4:15 p.m., Fox – Loss, 3-6, Leinert lights us up
Week 11: Nov. 18, vs. New York Giants, 4:15 p.m., Fox – Loss 3-7, playoffs officially a pipe dream
Week 12: Nov. 22, vs. Green Bay, 12:30 p.m., Fox – Win, 4-7, can the Thanksgiving magic spark a late-season run?
Week 13: Dec. 2, at Minnesota, 1 p.m., Fox – Loss, 4-8, the answer is no
Week 14: Dec. 9, vs. Dallas, 1 p.m., Fox – Loss, 4-9, free-fall mode has begun, Shaun Rogers officially gives up on season
Week 15: Dec. 16, at San Diego, 4:15 p.m., Fox – loss 4-10, Fire Millen marches begin
Week 16: Dec. 23, vs. Kansas City, 1 p.m., CBS – loss, 4-11, Planned walkout at final home game fizzles, again
Week 17: Dec. 30, at Green Bay, 1 p.m., Fox – loss, 4-12, driving snow mercifully prevents Detroit TV viewers from being able to see the carnage.

Final tally, 4-12. I’m already ticked off. It’s great being a Lions fan.
