On Sunday, the Detroit Lions went into Soldier Field and laid an egg in what ended up being a 34-22 butt whooping at the hands of the Chicago Bears. With the loss, the Lions now sit at 3-6 on the season and any hope of making a run at the playoffs has pretty much evaporated.
But that does not mean all is lost!
Let’s face it, there is a VERY small chance the Lions win their next seven games and win the NFC North, which means there is only one thing for us fans to look forward to…
THE 2019 NFL DRAFT!
According to Tankathon.com, the Lions have moved up to No. 7 in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Here is what the Top 20 currently looks like.
So, Lions fans, everything is not lost because WE ALWAYS HAVE NEXT YEAR!!!
Ugh, this is getting old.

From Detroit Lions:
STATEMENT FROM THE DETROIT LIONS:
“As the first African-American to be drafted and to play in the National Football League, Wally is one of the true trailblazers in American sports history. He resides among the great men who helped reshape the game as they faced the challenges of segregation and discrimination.
“His contributions date back to his days at Penn State as the Nittany Lions’ first African-American starter and varsity letter-winner, highlighted by his appearance in the first integrated Cotton Bowl.
“Wally’s legacy also reaches beyond breaking color barriers, having served in the United States Army during the Korean War.
