Jacksonville Jaguars to Detroit Lions: ‘You stink’

SHARE Jacksonville Jaguars to Detroit Lions: ‘You stink’

It seems some members of the Jacksonville Jaguars were quite literally adding insult to injury during a 38-14 romp over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

From The Detroit News:

They were cracking jokes, Lions running back Kevin Smith


said. They thought we were a joke. They said we (stink). They were saying that to me, that I (stink). And I told them they (stink), too. And they said, ‘Well, not as bad as (you).’ And I said, ‘You’re right.’ (Because) we haven’t won one game.

While Smith was admitting the ineptitude, Lions coach Rod Marinelli wove this inspirational gem:

You’re in this dark tunnel and you’ve got no way out, Marinelli said. You’re waiting for the light and you see that light, so what do you do? You start digging and getting out. And if there’s no light at the end of the tunnel? You (have to) have the same belief in what you’re doing when you expect no light, Marinelli said, before adding, My shovel is sharp and my will is outstanding.

The Lions have lost 16 of their last 17 games.

Anyone out there think they’ll win a game this season? Two games? Show yourselves.
