Nothing. All hope is lost. Abandon ship. Save yourself the time and misery.

  • Our farm teams are worst in their respective leagues, and no one on them will ever contribute.
  • The team will never get a top draft pick.
  • The league is totally stacked against us, as evident by every call the refs make.
  • Things never ever get better in sports, as evidence by the fact that the Detroit Dead Things are still in the bottom of the league and haven't won anything important.
Seriously, what did people go into this season expecting? That in a shortened season with major roster overhaul that the worst team in the league would suddenly become a first place team by trading away it's best player, having a shortened training camp, and no exhibition games in order for the new players to learn from?

It would have taken a miracle for this team to make the playoffs under normal circumstances, but that doesn't mean that there isn't good players, coaches, and front office staff somewhere burred in the midst of things. Something to build from in the future.

But if you can't see that there are potential positives, I hear there is a fairly good college football team in your city, maybe they are more worth your time.
