From The Detroit News:
""They were cracking jokes," Lions running back KevinWhile Smith was admitting the ineptitude, Lions coach Rod Marinelli wove this inspirational gem:
Smithsaid. "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."
""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.
