If Lions fans are good at anything, it’s spotting a bad team. I have been a Lions fan since I was 6 years old, so I can tell you; this looks like a bad team. They have some decent players in spots, but their holes are glaring. What’s more is that they seem completely incapable of fixing what’s wrong.
