What the Lions loss mean

The previous record owner was the Carolina Panthers. Carolina went 1-15 in 2001.

They have 17 losses in a row, going back to the last game of last year. If they lose the first 10 games next year, they will have the longest losing streak ever. (Tampa Bay 26)
I meant in one season

We needed that season to make us who we are today.
"We" being the team or the fans?

lions at 0-16 means that the Panthers, divisional champs and 2nd seed in the NFC barely eeked out a victory at home against the worst team in NFL history as far as single season records go.
Right. That's NFL parity. No team is really that bad. And no team is really that good.
It's a hard concept for a lot of people, but any team really can lose on any given Sunday.
It's not like in college, where Florida and Oklahoma only play about 4 games a year they could actually lose. Every team in the NFL has good players.

That's got to be like getting kicked in the nuts by Jet Li every day for 4 months.
