Pops on Suicide watch as Washington bails out Detroit once again!

As an avid fan of the Washington Redskins, Pops was dreading this weekend.  He knows that his Skins have always been generous in offering up themselves in order to help out a struggling team in the National Footbal League.  Back in 1989 the Dallas Cowboys finished the season with a 1-15 record.  The sole win was against the Redskins.  To this day Pops cringes when he is reminded of that season.

Well, he now will have the 2009 season to cringe about.  Enter the lowly Detroit Lions and their 19 game losing streak.  December of 2007 was the last time the Lions won a a game.  Following a 19-14 Lions voctory this passed Sunday, I had to keep tabs on our Pops.

I believe the Lions can win two more games this season.  However, if they do skate to 1-15 (an improvement over 0-16 a season ago), then Pops will have to reconcile in the fact that a second straight Detroit winless season was spared by a bailout from Washington D.C.
