Jacksonville Jaguars to Detroit Lions: 'You stink'

| 9 Comments | No TrackBacks
It seems some members of the Jacksonville Jaguars were quite literally adding insult to injury during a 38-14 romp over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

From The Detroit News:

""They were cracking jokes," Lions running back Kevin Smith said. "They thought we were a joke. They said we (stink). They were saying that to me, that I (stink). And I told them they (stink), too. And they said, 'Well, not as bad as (you).' And I said, 'You're right.' (Because) we haven't won one game."
While Smith was admitting the ineptitude, Lions coach Rod Marinelli wove this inspirational gem:

""You're in this dark tunnel and you've got no way out," Marinelli said. "You're waiting for the light and you see that light, so what do you do? You start digging and getting out."


And if there's no light at the end of the tunnel?

"You (have to) have the same belief in what you're doing when you expect no light," Marinelli said, before adding, "My shovel is sharp and my will is outstanding."

The Lions have lost 16 of their last 17 games.

Anyone out there think they'll win a game this season? Two games? Show yourselves.

only seven more games for a perfect season

Kyle responds: The Lions need Rob Schnieder from "The Waterboy" yelling, "You can do it!"

A little amusing info for those that were not able ( or actually have a life) to see the game. Several times during the game Kevin Smith was hotdogging in the face of the Jags after completing routine carries of 3 to 5 yards. This while they were getting their asses handed to them. The Lions seemed quite pleased with the fact that they took from the game the first Lions recovered onside kick in 8 (really) years. Kevin Smith is an ass.

I agree with marinelli.I think he is an outstanding coach and he never gives up.However,I don't like what Kevin Smith said, if you have that losing mentality then you won't get anywhere.All Detroit has to do is get the right mind set and they will start winning football games.

They will win a game, and it will be when Jerome Felton comes back to block for K.Smith. The Lions will either beat the Bucks or the Packers, maybe both. Being a Lions fan, I really want to know what the difference between last year and this year is. Last year we at least competed, where this year we are just awful. But hey, thats why they play the game. GO LIONS!

Looking at the way the 49ers played last night, I have to wonder why we weren't able to do the same thing. Martz as OC with a hard-nosed coach who demands the best out of his players.

Oh, that's right. Matt Millen and Ford Sr.

Well, half the problem's solved. Marinelli is hosed. It's a no win game he's playing and I expect people to show him the respect he deserves for sticking with a tough situation (See: Nick Saban). Ford needs to sell the team or give up control some other way, and we need to clean house and bring in winners. Period.

what do you think that kevin smith don't have the right mind set. He has been pretty much the only guy who wants to win beside calvin johnson. You guys can say what you want but if it wasn't for kevin smith they wouln't even have that many td's this season because all he does is run his ass off.

Somebody needs to tell you guys so I will be as gentle as I can. For 50 years I've seen fans like you guys try to hope, pray, decifer, analize, armchair coach by reaching from all the deepest depths of denial the Detroit Lions into something other than what they are. LOSERS-PURE AND SIMPLY A PATHETIC EXCUSE FOR A FOOTBALL TEAM. Always have been, always will be. Everything from a endless merry go round of qb's and coaches to new stadiums to new team bus drivers has been tried. THERE IS NO FIX. Learn to enjoy them for what they are. The best loseres ever. Get smart like Kyle. If you want to root FOR a teem find a new one.

The Lions have had many winning seasons. They are as of yet to reach to promised land. They absolutely will have winning seasons again. They may not win a game this season but I won't give up on them. I won't forget they are my team. If winning in this league was easy then what would the sense of watching be. Without the lows, the highs are hollow and insignificant. Keep driving to win Lions. The real fans of Detroit are still out there.

Bruce,

You think they aren't going to do the same thing the Cards have done? You know you suck, so you try to get better and use the fact that you suck to get some good draft picks till you're in a position to start competing for real. You want a team that sucks? Go look at the Raiders.
