So the Lions are one of four teams to have never made the Super Bowl. That’s not great, but at least they’re a fairly recent expansion team.

These Detroit Lions fantasy football names celebrate the good, the bad, and the weird of football in the Motor City.
Detroit Lions Fantasy Team Names for 2023

A Millen Reasons
Ultimately the Lions couldn’t find one good one for him to stay.

Historical Detroit Lions Fantasy Football Names
Out of the top ten rushing seasons in Lions history, Barry Sanders owns the 9th and 10th best. Then good ol’ Billy Sims comes in at number eight.
After that, it’s all Sanders all the way up.
