Bears fans, beware! Hoping to change a losing culture that has plagued the franchise for the better part of this decade, the Detroit Lions unveiled their new logo Monday. The new Lion has been called “fiercer” by some, but to me, it’s still a sissy-looking, blue kitty cat.
The new logo comes less than a year after the team finished with a dismal, NFL-record-setting 0-16 season. The idea behind the new design is that the Lions are seeking to change the whole culture of the franchise.
I know that the Lions will be better next year. First, because you can’t go anywhere but up from a winless season. But they’ve also made some nice moves, acquiring linebacker Julian Peterson from the Seahawks as well as bringing in safeties Dwight Smith and Kalvin Pearson and cornerback Brian Kelly.
But it’s going to take a lot more than a new logo and a few new additions to turn around the losing culture they’ve built and to make some noise in the NFC North.
