2008 Detroit Lions

I found it very interesting that the poll put up about "Who's to blame" did not have the option to select the players.

Listen, by no means am I giving Polian, Caldwell or anyone in the front office a pass.  They all should have their feet to the fire for this pitiful start.  If they continue down this same path we'll be joining the 2008 Lions in the record books. 


Why do you not have the "players" as an option???  We can put plenty of blame on Caldwell, Irsay, Polian and Co.  But seriously after the New Orleans match-up EVERYONE and I mean EVERYONE needs to be held accountable.

Below is the 2008 Detroit Lions roster.  Take a quick glance and tell me how we are not position for position as talented if not more than they are.  We have the talent so why are we not winning?  Coaching, effort, attitude....We lack all three.
