Every single year in the off-season a handful of football analysts pick the Arizona Cardinals and Detroit Lions to be the dark-horse teams in the NFL. Every year by mid-season those teams are at the very bottom of the standings.
I think it's time to write in stone that those teams WILL ALWAYS SUCK - period - end.
Don't delude yourselves; even if one of those teams managed to sign Jesus Christ to a 10 year contract they would still be struggling to keep ahead of the Houston Texans in the rankings. Thinking otherwise is just stupid.
