    It's official.

    0-16.

    The worst single season record in NFL history.

    Time for a logo change. No more of this...

    Lots more of this...

    Never has a football record been more in keeping with the self image of a city.

    Congratulations to every team that managed to win a game this year. And for the Lie-downs? Well, there's always next year (God help us).

    You have the Pistons and Red Wings, and Allen Iverson who I still miss dearly. You're not that bad off.

    Hey you gotta find the bright spots, being a sports fan. Being a philly fan, I've had to find them annually. I know em when I see em.

    Does this mean that the Carolina Panthers no longer hold the record?

    I remember one of your first posts I ever read on here, it was about your woeful Lions.....back when they had only lost 5 or 6 games.


    Wow. 0-16. I remember the Colts when they were 1-15, then we got



    Peyton Manning! :woohoo::bowdown::happy-1::eusa_clap:






    Look on the bright side......................


    Miami was 1-15 last year, and it's looking like they will win their division today and be in the playoffs!


    The motto of teams like yours is:

    There's always next year!

    That's what we've been telling ourselves for years. Until that time arrives, our new song is....

    I was cheering for the Lions today.

    They still weren't as bad as the Bucs in the 70s who lost 26 games in a row.
