Ranking every Detroit Lions team from the last 25 years (25-21)
2 of 6
#25. The 2008 Detroit Lions
- Zero as in zero wins, as in 0-16.
- Became the first team in NFL history to go 0-16 for the year
- Earned the #1 pick in the 2009 NFL Draft (all you fans of the tank philosophy must have loved 2008)
Star Power: 1.5
- Calvin Johnson, a few years before his prime
- Rookie Kevin Smith, a third round pick from Central Florida
- Jason Hanson, nearing the end of his ageless career
Entertainment Value: 2
There wasn’t much reason to watch this team, beyond the curiosity factor once 0-16 was starting to look like a legitimate possibility (so around Week 5).
Total Score: 4.5 out of 40
