Welcome to the A”Pack”olypse ….or at least signs that it may be approaching.
In what I hope will become a new weekly feature here at AllGreenBayPackers.com, I will take a look at something in the NFL that is (sometimes somewhat) Packer related that may be a sign that end times may be upon us or that some kind of all hell is about to break loose.
The inaugural topic: the Detroit Lions and their 5-0 start.
I can’t believe I didn’t see a big red line under that sentence. The fact that the Lions are undefeated should not compute. Congrats Microsoft, you built a much smarter word processor than I thought.
Anyways, here’s the odd part: I am happy for the Detroit Lions. I mean how could you not be?
The ownership and former management regime crapped on the fan base for years. The organization, once a proud one with the great Barry Sanders running the ball, became a punch line for futility and incompetence. Throw in the economic recession that devastated the Detroit area and a 0-16 season and things had hit rock bottom.
Today the economy is still on shaky ground but things no doubt look better for the auto industry that is the blood of Detroit’s economy. The Lions themselves are symbolic of the city’s rise from the ashes.
