In Terms of Success – Lions Rank Next To Dead Last in the NFL in New Article

Detroit Lions v Indianapolis Colts

Mike Freeman, Lead NFL National Reporter for Bleacher Report, has written a long piece which talks about each and every NFL franchise, and their success.

There’s a number of factors involved, including Super Bowl, Conference and division titles. The Lions didn’t get much love on the list, as according to Freeman, they are last in the NFL coming in at 31.

Here’s what Freeman has to say about the Lions:

“Happiness does not come from football awards. It’s terrible to correlate happiness with football. Happiness comes from a good job, being able to feed your wife and kids. I don’t dream football. I dream the American dream. Two cars in a garage, be a happy father.” —Barry Sanders, per the Los Angeles Times

The Lions are one of the great “paper bag over the head” franchises in sports history. But go back in time a bit. The Lions won an NFL championship in 1935. They appeared in three consecutive championship games in the early 1950s, winning two. They won another championship in 1957. The Lions also made the playoffs six times in the 1990s.
