Very little, if anything seems to be going right for the Detroit Lions this year.
Not only are they 3-9-1 with just three games left to play, but they just keep making the wrong moves along the way.
One of those moves came earlier in the year, prior to the trade deadline, when Bob Quinn shocked us all by trading safety — and team captain — Quandre Diggs to the Seattle Seahawks for a fifth-round (and seventh-round) draft pick.
That’s right, a real NFL GM traded a team captain and locker room favorite for a draft pick that likely will never make much of an impact on the roster.
On Sunday Night Football, Diggs continued to make Quinn and the Lions organization look amateur when he picked off two passes — including a pick-six — against the Los Angeles Rams.
If you missed those plays, please check them out…they are painful to watch as a Lions fan.
Following those two interceptions, Twitter exploded with media members and fans ripping Bob Quinn and the Detroit Lions organization for trading Diggs.
Here are a few of the most damning.

Trading players like Quandre Diggs, Kyle Van Noy, Golden Tate and Laken Tomlinson for late round draft picks and winning nine games in two years ✍️

I want Bob Quinn to publicly address lions fans on why he thought getting rid of Quandre Diggs was a good idea

That 5th round pick the #Lions got for Quandre Diggs better be earth-shattering 😅

Remember when the Lions traded Quandre Diggs and a 2021 7th rd pick for a 2020 5th rd pick. pic.twitter.com/MbvBfH5hIc

By the way, if you ever questioned how Detroit's players felt about Quandre Diggs — just check their Twitter accounts whenever Diggs makes a play in Seattle.
They are always super happy for him. Dude was a teammate favorite in Detroit.

Lions front office and coaching staff decided that Quandre Diggs wasn't good enough to play for them. #SameOldLions(SOL) 🤦

Since the Quandre Diggs trade:

Yep, Quandre Diggs isn't good, Lions.

Former Lion Quandre Diggs just took an interception 55 yards for a TD for Seahawks. Of course he did. Diggs trade is a growing stain on Lions front office
