.....but I've -never- seen so many hideous last-second losses by the Lions and Spartans combined in one season.

Someday, when the universe evens itself out, we're in for a sweet run...
I feel horrible....but I thank my dad everyday for not raising me a Lions fan
To die in ann arbor is redundant
The similarity is horrible play calling with a lead at the end. Running Joique Bell into the line Twice was comical.
Yeah 2010-2011 was the run.
Don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen, particularly with the Lions. If any sports franchise is cursed for eternity, it is the Detroit Lions.
For christ's sake, Gunther Cunningham, at least send a fucking linebacker when the Colts are inside the Detroit 30...........
The Detroit Lions will never win a Super Bowl. Ever. That is fact and is indisputable.
Lions aren't cursed. They just hire retards. NFL is built for teams to contend every few years.

I contend they are cursed AND they are one of the most poorly operated franchises, with a loser mentality.

When I die, the Lions will win the Super Bowl and MSU will win the national championship the next year. I'm convinced of this.
Willing to fall on a sword for the rest of the Spartan nation?

Does it really matter after the drought hits 50 years? It's been long enough. The cubs and lions are similar in terms of even getting to the playoffs though.
Do Cubs fans get their hearts ripped out as much as Spartans? I don't give a shit about 1903.

Once they decided to put a roof on ford field we were doomed. I truly believe it is costing us a couple wins a year.
How many domed stadium teams have won a superbowl? I still believe that answer is one.
Only the Saints, I think.
Edit: forgot about the Rams. Lucas Oil Stadium is retractable.

I stand corrected. Thank you. I still say 3 is not many. Even if we only count from 1980 when there was a big enough sample of domed teams playing, thats still not much.
Lions losing streak in green bay and awful record historically in chicago are examples of what I mean.
Colts won 2007 SB
Colts played in RCA Dome until the 2008 season
edit: Do they ever open Lucas Oil for the Colts? Never paid much attention to them.

You know what? I've never really thought about this. Perhaps because before Ford Field there was the Silverdome, and I'm too young to remember the Tiger Stadium days. Playing out in the elements would give a Detroit based franchise in advantage in November and December.
It changes a lot of things more than people would think. Shorter strides, less risk taking, more north/south running than lateral. Different receiver routes. Special teams could completely change. Fog bowl? Wind gate when giants punter missed the ball punting?
We stink no doubt, but I think it would have helped to have an outdoor stadium.
That is not fact, but prediction; as such, it is both disputable, and no better than a 50% chance of being accurate.
Thank you, Denicos.
