Ok, lets start, I lived in michigan until i was 16 years old, my father was a union man in lansing michigan, and he was given early retirment and that is when i exited the wonderfull state of michigan. Now in florida i am still a die hard michigan man all the way( but I hate the Spartans) and as i grow older i realize that the team of lions i left is the same team as today! Sadly it seems detroit as a team and a city can't get out of the way of itself and I wonder what the hell is going on. Gran Torino just came out and it shows a man from detroit stuck in the past and then goes on to backdrop this depressed metropolis that is stuck in the past. I see this and it makes me angry at the industries that did not adjust to the changing global market, while in many other places they thrived. So now to the lions. I love the lions through any season, but as I see all of this bad publicity about detroit, i see parallels between the city and the team. Ford owns the team, i don't care about his stake in the company which bares his name, but there has been a parallell between the company and the team over the last 50 years, and now Ford stock at the lowest in 60 years and failure looming, the ford owned lions go 0-16 Failing to win one game. If you don't see where i am going with this then stop reading. Another parallel... the 1990's  a glimmer of hope named Barry Sanders came along, As did the huge rise in big suv's, and the future looked as if there was hope. The story plays over and over with the lions, the city, and its industries. Is it the curse of Ford?
