The Detroit Lions origins as a franchise go back to Ohio, breeding ground for semi-pro football in the 20th century’s first half. In 1934, a local radio station announced its purchase of the NFL’s 1932 champion Portsmouth Spartans, which would be relocated to Detroit for the following season. Thus were the Spartans the last small-market team to relocate, and the 11-team NFL of ’34 was comprised of 10 teams set squarely in American metropolises and the 11th in Green Bay.
In their first season in the Motor City, QB/coach Potsy Clark led the newly rechristened Lions to a 10-3 mark in 1934 and to Detroit’s first NFL title in ’35. This championship would unfortunately precede a 16-year drought without a playoff appearance in the days before wild-card bids. However, the Lions regrouped into a force once again in the early 1950s: Teams stocked with legends like Doak Walker, Bobby Layne, Yale Lary, Leon Hart and Jack Christiansen got the Lions to most-feared status with four bids between 1952 and ’57, including three title wins.
Who in 1957 would have known what would follow? These once-mighty Lions for any number of reasons would muster just three playoff appearances (one of them coming based on a 4-5 record in the strike-shortened ’82 season) in the next 33 years. Of all the all-time greats the Lions had fielded prior to the 60s, the greatest in the post-NFL/AFL merger era have all mostly wasted years of their careers in Detroit.
Biggest case in point: Barry Sanders. Simply one of the greatest ever to play NFL football, Sanders joined Detroit in ’89, played on Lions teams which went 86-74 (so between 8-8 and 9-7 on average) in a 10-year career cut short by the man himself realizing the futility of playing for a team who wouldn’t pay out to support him with all-star teammates.
In 2001, the team made its most significant personnel decision ever as a franchise, taking on Matt Millen as general manager. By slowly running his team into the ground via draft busts and non-activity during free-agency periods, the Lions went a cumulative 31-97 and recorded the first-ever 0-16 season in NFL history during Millen’s eight years “running” things.
After a couple of years of rebuilding, the Lions got back to competitiveness by 2011 and made three playoff appearances in six years. However, an 0-3 overall record in the playoffs in the 10s hardly justifies blowing Calvin Johnson’s entire career…
