Starting 0-3 nothing new for Lions

Six of the last 10 seasons the Lions have gotten off to 0-3 starts. Yikes.

For fans, every training camp hope springs eternal and then by October hopes of a winning season are dead.

Again the Lions are 0-3. This is a different team. If all the key players could get healthy and stay healthy they could still win at least a handful of games. That’s the difference between the last two years and this season.

Left guard Rob Sims, in his first season with the Lions, has a different perspective.

“Of course it’s disappointing, I mean 0-3 is bad any way you slice it. We’re optiimistic, we still think we have a good team. We lost a heart-breaker on the first one, the second one we were right there at the end too. This one the Vikings came back and had a good game,’’ Sims said. “When you’re trying to rebuild a team and get going on some stuff, you don’t get the easy calls.’’

Sims said if you’re a winning team and you miss a block, it doesn’t matter because on the next play the running back can squirt through for a touchdown.

It’s different if you’ve been a team associated with losing. “You have to be perfect and we haven’t been perfect,’’ Sims said.
