One year. One city. Endless opportunities.

(Honolulu) Blue Monday

Nineteen losses and counting. And like the rest of the Lions faithful, I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. Detroit's got enough problems without suffering through the Monday morning blues every NFL season.

But what, really, are we prepared to do about it?

We've changed players, GMs and coaches like underwear. I know we can't dump the owner — but maybe it's time to think about the owner dumping us. Maybe it's time to consider something like "The Cleveland Browns" option. Remember when the NFL let the Art Modell-owned Browns become the Baltimore Ravens, with the stipulation that the Browns' logo, color scheme and franchise records stayed behind?

I'm not saying the NFL would even agree to something like this in Detroit. But what about you, sports fan?  If you were part of the long-suffering Lions faithful, what would you do? After 46 years of football mediocrity, would you be willing to say goodbye to your hometown team — if it meant an ironclad promise  of a new owner and the same logo, color scheme and franchise records?

Or do you just hang on to what you've got and get your feelings crushed Sunday after Sunday?

I'm curious to know what you think...
