Drew Sharp, Detroit Free Press, November 17, 2008: “Let me reiterate — it … is … impossible … to … lose … all … 16…games … in an NFL season.”
Drew Sharp, Detroit Free Press, December 28, 2008: “They’re going 0-16. They’ve finally sold me on their destiny. I was once a stubborn advocate of the blind squirrel theory, especially in a league that blatantly legislates competitive balance. But the Lions finally convinced me that even dumb luck when seeking that elusive acorn doesn’t fully absolve dumb decision making.”
So you’re saying it’s possible, then?
Of course it’s possible, you dolt. I’ve long said it would be harder to go 0-16 than to go 16-0 and here we have seen both in the last two seasons. But it’s never been impossible to do either.
