On the heels of yet another loss, the Detroit Lions fans are not happy. Nor should they be. Those of us who cover the team aren’t happy either.
Thursday’s 16-14 loss to the Chicago Bears, when the visitors to Ford Field walked away winners on a last-second field goal, falls squarely on Lions head coach Dan Campbell and his staff.

And some of them are not index fingers, either.
