Lions “Close to Winning”

The Detroit Lions, according to safety Terrence Holt, are “close to winning” an NFL game.

In other news, Lions president Matt Millen is almost competent to run an NFL franchise, and Millen’s biggest draft bust, former Lions wide receiver Charles Rogers, is close to signing a five-year deal as a waterboy for the Berlin Thunder, where he is anticipated to be marginally more successful than as a wide receiver in the real NFL. Current Lions wide receiver (and legendary draft bust in the making) Mike Williams has one foot nearly out the door of head coach Rod Marinelli’s doghouse, and could play as many as two snaps in next week’s game against the Rams in St. Louis.

Former Lions quarterback and fellow Millen-era draft bust Joey Harrington, now the tenth-string quarterback for the Miami Swimming Mammals, was quoted as saying, “I’m close to caring.”

Film at 11. Or close to it, anyway.
