Let’s face it, the Detroit Lions have been one of the worst franchises in NFL history.
There is no arguing that.
Through the years, the Lions have often been the laughing stock of the NFL and what you are about to see is fuel to that fire.
Prior to their 31-3 loss to the New England Patriots on Thursday, the Lions PR department tweeted out the fact that the Lions are 12-4 in preseason openers over the past 16 seasons.
The tweet is factually correct but it is also embarrassing, as you can see by reading some of the responses to the tweet.
Where can I get a t-shirt?

How many playoff wins since 1991? 1957? But hey hell of a job in the last 16 meaningless preseason games.

Dear Detroit Lions PR department,
PLEASE keep tweets that will embarrass your organization and your fan base to yourself.
