The Detroit Lions announced on Monday their team will be featured on the next season of Hard Knocks from HBO Sports. It’s an interesting choice, to be sure. The Detroit Lions haven’t had a winning season since 2017 and they possess the longest NFL Playoffs drought (2016).
It’s not as if Hard Knocks targets ‘contenders’ every year but the last time they actually won an NFL Playoffs game was December 30, 2000. And let me preface this by saying I actively root for the Detroit Lions every game. I’m not a Lions fan (born and raised Bucs fan), but I pull for them every game. I’m just throwing those stats out there to show there’s low-hanging fruit for people to react to this news.
Prior to the Detroit Lions starring on HBO’s Hard Knocks this season, the show had featured the Colts, Cowboys, Rams, Chargers, and Raiders. And now, the Lions which is actually great news because we’ll get more Dan Campbell comment on Twitter… So let’s check out what people are saying online about this…
