If you think being a Detroit Lions fan is rough, try being a Detroit Lions and Michigan State University fan. It’s pretty unbearable. I’m accepting candy corn and hot cocoa from anyone who wants to give me some comfort during these difficult times.

Many were looking to Sunday’s (Oct. 9) game against the New England Patriots as a possible win for the Detroit Lions- or at least not a bloodbath. It was, of course, a bloodbath. The Lions played embarrassingly poor. It’s a long, steep fall from just a few weeks ago, when some NFL analysts were even thinking the Lions could make it to a playoff game.

While the Lions offense is considered very strong, that just didn’t show in this game. Jared Goff had an off day, and the rest of the offense followed suit. Sunday’s game was horrific, as the Lions 29-0 to the New England Patriots. What makes it worst is that the Patriots were using a rookie quarterback, which was their third string quarterback. Not to mention that the Patriots have one of the lowest ranked defenses in the NFL.

Of course, Twitter is ablaze with tweets about Sunday’s game. I resisted the temptation to tweet about my disappointment, but many people have their thoughts to share. It’s all fun and games, unless you are a true Lions fan. Then, it’s blue tears. Check out some of the tweets below.

Listen to a NEW episode of “The Squad with Anne Erickson” right now, talking about the future of Dan Campbell with guest Brad Berreman of SideLion Report. LISTEN NOW here and below.

    This tweet wins it all. The funniest that I saw. Farewell, Lions beanie/skull cap.

    This one sums it up. Ouch.

    I guess you could say that. But I think it’s more about the Lions having a bad day.

  • Lions Twitter Reactions

    Wow. Just wow. He lets it rip with this assessment of Dan Campbell. Let’s hope Dan doesn’t see this tweet.

    This one was funny and had me LOLing! It’s kind of true, right? Even if it’s a stretch, it’s hilarious.

    This is a good point. This game had me really, really wondering about the future of Dan Campbell with the team.

    Jeremy Reisman is a regular guest on “The Squad with Anne Erickson” here at the WRIF. He always has great insights, such as this one.

  • Lions Twitter Reactions

    Yep. This game was so embarrassing. I had a hard time watching it.

    “Cooking the Lions” is one way to put it. People always come up with creative ways to bash the team.
