The Detroit Lions blow. I know, shocking. On Sunday, the Lions lost for the 19th consecutive time. The streak is the second-longest in NFL history behind only the Buccaneers’ historic futility in the late 1970s.
ESPN’s “NFL Live,” put up the above nifty little graphic illustrating the Lions’ continued failures. Chopin’s “Funeral March” played in the background.

And as all this is happening, the Bottom Line scrolls to an all too familiar gloomy Charles Rogers tidbit. Rogers was arrested Wednesday for drunken driving. On Monday, he plead guilty.
You remember Rogers, one of Detroit’s many bust draft picks. He’s a Rumors and Rants favorite for this reason, and this reason only. “Yeah. Yeah, I blew every day.” Rogers certainly did blow. And so did his Lions. And as ESPN reminded us on Monday, they still do.
