The Lions really blough.
It's our one and only joke allotted for this article, and we were going to use it. As the Detroit Lions prepare for their Thanksgiving Day suckfest against the Chicago Bears, we're here with another reminder of why you should absolutely NOT watch this football game! We love hard-hitting, high-flying NFL action on turkey day as much as the next fan, but this is pushing the limits of our reality.
The Lions' only hope is Jeff Driskel, just to put things in perspective.
Who is David Blough?
Matthew Stafford is out long-term with a back injury, and Driskel may also miss action with a sore hamstring. The only man separating the Lions from starting a wide receiver at QB is David Blough, a former Purdue signal-caller who could be thrust into action in a game watched by far too many of you lunatics.
Detroit even attempted to sign Josh Johnson from the XFL, a move the alternative league quickly denied.
We almost wish the Lions would sign Colin Kaepernick just for the Thanksgiving dinner arguments it would cause. Instead, it is likely Blough who will get the call, with TE Logan Thomas as the emergency option. Yes, it's that dire.
Blough set records at Purdue, but it's unfair to throw him in this situation with little to no live game experience. We wish him the best.
