Scanning the Savanna

Close, but no cigar. That was the story of the Detroit Lions’ 2010 season, wasn’t it? Here was a team that was right there — a lot — but couldn’t get wins until the last month of the season. There were some moral victories. There were some curiously questionable calls (Ndamukong Suh on Jay Cutler, anyone?). There were some weird calls (take a guess what play I’m referring to). But, at the end of the day, there were only six wins.
